When did you start baby on meat? Did you just use the pureed like in the Gerber 2nd foods?

I started meats around 6 months - he had really low iron when I tested him, so I started him right away. He had the purees in a jar, and I pureed up some meat myself and froze it in batches. Now he just gets chunks of meat from me...it's hit or miss whether or not he likes them!

I've been thinking about meats lately. I think I may skip the purees and just give her shredded/mashed up meats when I think she's ready. I've heard the pureed meats smell and taste weird.

I also started my daughter on meats with no teeth. I just made sure to stay close and give her small pieces.

I'm also deathly afraid of choking. I'm waiting for 8 or 9 months to start meat, and when I do its gonna be shredded up finely until I know for certain that she can chew it!

I don't have a baby at the moment but I've worked with infants in childcare for 15 years, and I found that if you want to use the jarred meats that babies take to it better if it is mixed with a fruit or vegetable. I do that a lot with the parents that insist on the jarred meats. Good luck!

The jarred meats totally gross me out... I will not be giving that to her. LOL but I will be starting her on home made pureed meats when she is about 9 months old. When we get through all the fruits and veggies I feel like she would like, then we will move onto chicken first probably.

I started at about 7 months with meats. I only used the jarred if she had it mixed with something else as she hated it alone. Now, she eats pieces of meat that I break up. She has 7 teeth but I still break it in pretty small pieces.
