I will play it by ear... I think I started when the baby started reaching for it... And I will; make plenty of my own, because I grow everything in my backyard. I do it anyway for the whole family, so I will make as much as I can!
Oh heavens, I have no idea. I forget when it's supposed to be "ok" but I know it's not for quite a while yet. We'll do a blend of purchased purees, a few homemade purees, and chunks of small soft foods like avocado, banana, cheese, etc. I haven't given it much thought though since at this point I'm still fretting about my milk!
We'll start cereal somewhere around 6 months, and we will just use jars of baby food. Our kids don't tend to eat any of those for long (1-3 months), as we transition them to table food (whatever we're eating) pretty quickly. We just cut it very small.

That looks very helpful. Does anyone else have any book recommendations for feeding? There are so many!
Yes, that is the book that we used with my daughter as recommended by our pediatrician. We really liked it. The book does have a vegetarian focus so you can add meat into your baby's diet at the time that meat is recommended but the book doesn't have a time line for introducing meats. Overall I thought that the book had some really healthy guidelines and my 3 year old eats a lot more vegetables than her peers which I think is in part thanks to this book.
