8 month old and dried apricots

is that ok?

I can't deal with her getting upset (as she has in the past when I've tried foods too soon) and I definitely can't deal with her choking (well I could, but i'd be strung out afterwards). But I really want to find more snacks for when we're on the go

weaning plus learning to crawl, on top of everything else life throws/threw at me, is all getting to be a bit much

also any other ideas for stuff we could try, i'm trying to keep her off dairy until I find out if it's causing her eczema. I don't have much time so complicated stuff is a no-go

I personally wouldn't give dried apricots - I find them hard to chew as an adult!

I have a 9.5 month old who still has no teeth and finger foods we give are:
Rice Cakes
Cucumber rings
Bread or Toast
Pancakes (you could make these with his normal milk instead of cows milk)
Blueberries (cut in half)
Any type of steamed veg eg Brocolli, carrot, cauliflower, potato

Dried fruit in general is really high in sugar

Try it fresh

Along with the suggestions above
