We've been giving Livia Cheerios, peas, and cereal cookies.

Other than peas and corn, what are some other bite sized foods that would be suitable to give an 8 month old baby?

Kyler's only 2 1/2... and I already can't remember back that far.
I'll have to check to see if I wrote it in his babybook!

I know that Kyler was having grilled cheese - cut real small... but I think he might have been a year at that point. I don't remember!

Are you lookin for snacking foods or food in general? If its food in general then everything and anything as long as its cut up or mashed a bit. Kaydence eats everything and anything. Mangos are great, soft and you can cut them up and taste great.

Tara, are there any up-close pictures of that baby feeder thingy? I checked the website, but the pictures are not very clear.

I never used one - I looked into them but never got one. I just went looking for somewhere that might have a better picture

The bags are easy to clean if you do it right after their done. Don't let the food sit and dry up on it.

Nicholas loves it when I put a chunk of banana in it, and then put it in the freezer for 10 or 15 min.

We cut up just about everything soft into tiny pieces for Ally.

ground meat - hamburgers, meatballs, etc
mashed taters
mac & cheese
green beans
bananas - a favorite
pasta - tiny, tiny pieces until she had teeth
pudding
apple sauce

Drew cut his first toothat at 3 months, so he was eating more solid by the time he was Nicholas' age. (Had ALL his teeth by 1 year).

You are letting him have corn? I thought they weren't supposed to have corn until after they were at least a year old? Something about the kids not being able to digest them properly? Or am I thinking of something else? It's been 3 years and half the time I can't remember last week! LOL!

They make baby food corn in the jars??? We haven't given Livia any corn yet (it's not on the South Beach diet ), but I was thinking about it.

Tonight, she had the tiniest little pieces of salmon and asparagus.

We have one of those feeders too. After a while they do get a bit dingy but I soaked ours in a little bit of bleach water and it is as good as new!

We were told to give Kate more meat to help her grow. I give her fish, chicken, turkey, hamburger and ham. At first, I gave her deli meats cut into really small pieces. She still loves that. I think the baby food corn is more like a creamed corn. Kate doesn't like it that much. Of course, she's on a non- veggie phase right now. Also, there is the old reliable applesauce. Kate was eating french fries by then. She stole the fries right off of my plate, so I gave up and fed them too her. You have to watch it with fries or at least we do, because Kate chokes on them sometimes. Also, the little squirrel likes to hold a fry in her cheek indefinitely saving it for later and sometimes later she chokes.
