My daughter is nearly 7 months old, and for the last 6 weeks I've been giving her pureed carrot, banana, courgette, sweet potato etc. I'm feeding her twice a day and she hasn't dropped a milk feed. Should I start feeding her three times a day, and giving her other things (ie, non fruit and veg)? Or do I need to wait a while? The HVs I speak to give me conflicting advice and my mum and mum-in-law are from the school of 'I weaned mine at 12 weeks and it didn't do them any harm!'
she can have most things now apart from whole nuts, honey, salty foods, etc and you can also start to offer finger foods. If you have no allergy issues then you can offer toast, pasta, meats, dairy, etc too.
My daughter has just turned 7 months old and from around 6 months old she basically started to eat everything we were having.
Breakfast is normally porridge/ready brek or baby cereal with pureed fruit in like blueberries/banana/apple etc.
Lunch is broccoli and cauliflower cheese/vegetables and chicken/ spaghetti bolonaise etc followed by a yoghurt
Dinner is potato, veg and chicken/cottage pie and vegetables/ beef stew with veg.
Supper is either a yoghurt or banan custard or mashed up banana and milk.
Everything is either blended or mashed.
She also has some finger foods through the day to get her used to different tastes/textures. I buy the baby organic foods like rice cakes, sweetcorn snacks, carrot snacks etc. And she will also have toast with a little butter and marmite, chopped up fruit etc.
She drinks water at meal times.
Only things not to give are: nuts, honey and foods with salt in them
