How Will I Know If My Baby Is Ok After Rolling Off The Changing Table

8-12 mos of age: If your baby has already tried a variety of single item pureed foods you can try some table foods between 8-12 months of age. Make sure they are well mashed.

Soon, a baby will settle into a schedule, such breakfast - lunch - afternoon snack - dinner - evening snack (no need for middle-of-the-night eating). ...Read more
My 11 month old gags on food is that normal? He only eats stage two baby foods with out gagging. He wants to eat table foods & i feel bad that he cant
Probably normal: The nine to twelve month age can be tricky when it comes to transitioning from baby food to table food so probably what your child is doing is normal. I would continue the baby food and obtain a blender and purée the table food to see if he will take it that way. You may have to put some on your dinner plate at first and act like you will eat it in order to get him to try it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
