DS is a week shy of 7 months. He's been on stage 1 gerber foods/cereal for at least 2 months. I know he's not ready for finger foods/table foods. What's the difference between the stage 1,2, and 3? The only difference I can see between 1 and 2 is some mixed foods and a larger quantity. The stage 2 green beans and carrots seemed like just more of the same. Is stage 3 a little chunkier? I have mashed up some banana and he did fine with the small chunks I left in. I'd like to introduce some new stuff but don't want to waste the money if its way to advanced iykwim.

Is it also always necessary to do cereal with every meal, or is it common to give cereal with 1 or 2 meals and skip it for the other?

most of the time it is just a bigger jar.....some stage 2's are a tiny bit thicker, but not chunky.
we didnt stay on stage 1 very long before moving to 2. There is a bigger variety. Stage 3's are thicker, and some mixed dinners are chunky. I have noticed that Gerber dinners are sometimes a little easier for Katie to handle than Beechnut.

cereal is not necessary for every meal. Katie gets it (oatmeal)mainly in the morning(either from the box mixed with a fruit, or jar cereals)
occasionally she will have some for another meal, especially if she is constipated
some choose to skip the cereal totally
