Here’s Nadya choice of food, or rather MY choice of food for Nadya when she was 8 months old.
I eliminated purees and replace it slowly with Oats & Rice Porridge. Initially she was refusing chunkier oats & rice porridge so i gradually change the consistency and i’m so proud that she can now eat rice. Calrose rice / Sushi Rice mainly cos it’s softer and sticky.
She is also better at self-feeding now that she prefer self-feeding all the time!
Mango + Strawberries + Blueberries Oat Porridge
Threadfin Fish + Silken Tofu + Carrot + Spinach Rice Porridge.
First time introducing Tofu to her and no allergies so far!
Baby Pasta + Cherry Tomatoes + Chicken & Carrots
Silver Fish + Sweet Potato + Baby Spinach
Banana Strawberry Oats Porridge.
Pan-Fried Salmon + Steamed Carrots, Baby spinach & Cherry Tomatoes.
The start of chunkier food for Nadya and surprisingly she ate everything!
Mashed Potato + Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese.
First time introducing Cheese to her and like her Papa, she loves cheese!

Hi my baby 8 month but still toothless… am not sure if continue feeding him purees … any suggestions
Hello Mona, u can start textured foods bit by bit. Instead of mashing it up totally as puree, leave a bit of chunks. Gradually leave bigger chunks. Their gums are really strong. They can chomp down food even with no teeth. U can also look up Baby Led Weaning to see how babies are capable of eating solids and not purees
