    Oh I know I'm not starving her, but it seems like maybe I'm underfeeding her solids compared to others. Maybe she gets more BM as I'm just using solids to introduce foods to her. I nurse her 3 times a day during the week and she gets two 5 oz bottles as well during the day. On weekends and Fridays I nurse her 5 times.

    I weighed her yesterday while getting her 2nd flu shot and she weighed 19lbs 4 oz at the pedis office. She definetly has slowed in weight growth (was 19lbs on Sept 1st), but they said it is normal as they get more mobile and she is crawling so that could be it.

    When are they ready to start eating pieces of food, such as soft ones? She stole my cheerios last week while I was pouring them into a bowl so I let her have some and she does have the pincer grasp and loved sitting and feeding herself.

    I try giving Emy a little bit of solid pieces of food like yogurt melts, cheese, little bit of my bran muffin, bits of pasta. She still doesnt know how to feed herself, not sure when its normal for them to start doing, I have to put everything in her mouth.
    Emily slowed down with her weight gain too, thats very normal once they start being more active.

    We've been giving Evie more mashed foods now whenever possible, she showed us she was totally ready for it when I was in Vancouver. I have been reluctant to give her bits of solids, she sometimes chews, but I'm really scared she will choke on it. Plus she usually grimaces when textures are harder than she expected, unless she is ready.

    Anyways, finally gave her mum mum's today. First couple of bites, she wasn't sure what to think. But then she started biting and munching and chewing....gobbled up the two biscuits that were in the package. She loves it!

    I was wondering if cheerios would be ok at this stage now. I'm thinking of getting her some as a snack.

    Lena, there is no such thing as underfeeding solids, if Jessica wants more solids she will let you know. I think you have the right philosophy anyways, their main source of nutrition is still BM, giving them solids is just to intro eating and food textures and the like.

    Did kidney beans they went well.

    Erika - Have you tried giving Emily solids yet? Maybe she will prefer her veggies if she can feed herself. Nat is not a huge fan of green beans pureed but if I cut them into bite sized pieces and let her feed herself she loves them.

    This week Natalie's eating appears to be slowing down, she is not eating her yogurt after breakfast and really isn't scarfing down dinner as quick as before. She appears to be loving finger foods though, I've given her green beans and potatoes chopped as well as cheerios and she can't get enough.

    Kaysen gets solids - bites of soft foods I'm eating. Oh, and graham crackers...he likes those.

    I need to hit wholesomebaby.com again...I didn't cook the mixed fruit puree I made the other day. I wonder if it's still supposed to be at this stage.

    Ava finally just figured out the whole pincer grasp-putting food in her mouth. She goes nuts when she sees the yogurt melt bag come out. She has no teeth, but sure 'chews' like she does. The yogurt melts pretty much melt on contact with saliva.

    OMG I felt bad at dinner today, DH was feeding Natalie her pear puree at dinner time and all she wanted to do was eat our pizza, she was staring at me constantly till it was gone.

    The yoghurt melts sounds interesting. Where do I find them and do they have a lot of dairy in just one? I couldn't eat dairy when Jessica was younger - ok for me to eat some now, but DH is sensitive to dairy. I've been hesitant to give dairy to her yet, but if it is a really small amount that would be a good start to see if it bothers her.

    The yogurt melts are in the baby food aisle - they are made by gerber. Not sure on the dairy content of them - they are like meltable nuggets. Victor LOVES them too.

    Yes I'm thinking to do that, I will start with very soft veggies like over cooked carrots and cauliflower but I want her to get better at eating solid pieces, she likes my muffin and eats it pretty well so I will start giving her bits of whole wheat bread. She doesnt want to feed herself, just waits for me to put the pieces in her mouth.
    I will try cheerios soon too, maybe wait 2 weeks on that.
