I've been making my own baby food as you know. I am nearly done with the purees I've made and frozen. I did puree up some strawberries yesterday because I was worried they wouldn't be soft enough for her to eat. Is this something I should worry about with my 11 month old? When did you stop feeding your baby purees all together.
She's kind of between stages right now according to the Gerber chart. She's not walking yet, but she is standing up on her own for short periods of time. So she doesn't quite fit the toddler profile yet, but she's beyond the crawler profile. She is going to be a year old in a couple weeks though so I just feel weird about giving her baby food.
I give Mia noodles, soft carrot cubes, broccoli, cauliflower, soft apple and soft pear cubes. I usually boil or steam these things until they are very soft before I give them to her. She has 2 teeth now, but they're barely there. I give her the Gerber baby snacks that just melt away and soft food like avacado and banana chunks.
We are still struggling with the sippy cup. I've tried 2 different kinds and she's just not interested. However, if we leave a glass of water on the table she's more than happy to pick it up and attempt to drink from it. She does pretty well, but spills down the front of her shirt most of the time.
