Everything Lombo said is good. Some other ideas: Cooked carrot sticks Cucumber sticks Soft pear (peeled, sliced) Cheese on toast Crumpet slices Soft bits of cooked chicken (some people wait a while before introducing protein)
Last week I offered my 6m ds a whole strawberry, a slice of melon, a cube of mango, and some buttered bread and cheese. He had a lot of fun putting it in his mouth, mushing then letting it fall out again. I don't think much was actually swallowed. I also wasn't sure where to start so just went with what was in the house. I'll be interested to see what else is suggested here... Can't help with porridge fingers sorry!
DD is 5months old so im starting to think about weaning. When she's six months can I just start to give her finger foods, anything I put in her hands go straight in her mouth so I think she'd give it a go, what are the best things to offer first? What are these porridge fingers I've heard about?
