WIth Dylan I did like green beans for lunch and dinner for 2-3 days and then I switched to a new veggie for 2-3 days after I got through all of the veggies I started introducing the fruits for breakfast and he had that for like 3 mornings. But basically all you really need to do is get through all of them for 3 days at a time or so just to make sure that she isnt allergic. Its late so hopefully I make sense lol
I wait almost a full week between new foods and I only give them once and then wait the week. I do this because DH has alot of food allergies though. But I just decide what he wants each day! We try to keep it different each day and not do pears three days in a row or anything. I havent started giving different things at one meal yet. I plan on doing that soon. I am just waiting to get through all the foods first then I will start.
Once one food has been tried and is okay, you can combine the new foods with it. So if green beans went okay and you are ready to start squash, your baby can have one for lunch and the other for dinner (or at the same time). If there is a reaction, you will know it's the new food.
you can basically do what you want. you can mix it up and give the new veggie with whatever he has alreayd had all in the same meal, or you can just give the new food. eventually though he will get sick of eating just one food and you should introduce a variety but you have LOTS of time for that. The only thing I liked to do was to give him the new food not mixed with something else atleast the first day to find out if he liked it or not. If he liked it I continued to give it unmixed, but if he didnt like it, I would mix it with something he did like to get him to eat it.
ETA: and kuddos to you for sticking with cereal. My doc wants me to give it twice a day for atleast the first year cuase she said thats the most important food they can be eating right now. Since he is almost 10 months and able to eat more, I usually give him about 5 tablespoons of it at breakfast and supper with a bunch of other stuff in the same meal.
