Question for you--Troy has 2 teeth (I think a couple more are on the way) and is 7 months. What age do you try cheerios or small finger foods?? One part of me wants to try, but the other part thinks he's too young????

Your baby will let you know that he needs or wants to start eating solid foods. Babies show an interest in food by vocalizing the desire, reaching for it, intently watching others eat, or imitating chewing.

If there is a history of food allergies in your family, you may want to delay starting solid foods for as long as possible. When you do start you can make your own home made and natural baby food.


Signs That Your Baby Is Ready To Eat Solid Foods:

Teeth.

Your baby can sit independently and sit alone in a high chair.

Your baby loses the tongue-thrust reflex and can swallow foods without gagging.

Hand-eye coordination.

Ability to pinch objects between thumb and forefinger and can hold little pieces of food in his fingers.

You mentioned Cheerios... a healthy and safe choice for finger food tasting. Try one and see how Troy does with it!

Good luck and enjoy!!!

I think with two teeth I would try some of those things from Gerber such as fruit or veggie puffs or wagon wheels that dissolve easily and see how he does. IF he does well I would try cheerios. IMO
