What foods are good for firsts at six months? I'll be using organic and making my own purees.
Also, how much of the food and how many times a day should I offer it?
Until what age do I need to start offering more?
Thanks!

and my FAV link

start slowly your baby will let you know when enough is enough....
I started offering 1 time a day, and slowly increased to 2 after about a week or so...now we are 3 x's a day, Most days.
at first I only gave Katie 1/2 a jar of stage 1 foods at a time or 1 ice cube size of home made food.
Now of course we are eating a stage 2 jar at one sitting! LOL

Have fun !!! and keep us posted !
