we are going slow...once a day (usually lunch time) or every other day. she prefers actual food vs. baby food. she loves bananas the best. she'll only eat a couple tiny bits of jar food, mostly wants to play with the spoon
I think we will start 1 teaspoon a day, 1 time a day, and take it from there (either cutting back, taking a break, or increasing, depending on how she reacts). We want to start in June, when her adjusted age is 6 months.

Elli has fruit in the morning with her oatmeal. Either 1/2 banana, 1/2 pear or 3 prunes - all pureed ( I use the baby beaba). She then eats the equivalent of 1 jar at lunch. She has about 2-3 tablespoons at dinner with a ton of puffs. She loves puffs.
We are on once a day either lunch time or dinner time. He gets 2 ice cubes of either sweet potatoes or peas or he will eat a whole banana. He loves his food. We are on a new food for 3 days before we move on. Next I may do a mix of sweet potatoes and peas for a few days before moving on to cereal that will be mixed with BM.
Morgan eats morning and night. She gets a tablespoon of cereal mixed with 2 tablespoons of BM and half a jar of either fruit (morning) or vegetable (night). She loves trying to eat the puffs but more often than not they get stuck to her hands and she gets mad when she can't get them in her mouth.
I'll usually give Arthur food once or twice a day, and sometimes we'll go without, depending on our schedule and his mood. And I've started just giving him little bits of what we're eating. It's so much easier and he loves it so much more. And I'll just give him until he stops eating. He loves puffs though! Those were the perfect road trip food. They would placate him while I pumped in the back or until we could stop to nurse. And giving him puffs has really helped the transition from purees to straight BLW.
