    min150mph - We too are being cautious with dairy, DD1 was sensitive at a young age to dairy but outgrew it by 5 years old, DH is also sensitive. The melts I found were loaded with sugar so I am skipping those for now, my grocery store carries Heinz brand.

    Erika - Nat's been eating finger foods for a while now, we started with toast followed by over cooked potato, now she can eat quite a bit. Her favourite is cheerios but they can choke easily on them so be careful.

    Sophia - If she can eat a cookie then I think cheerios would be fine.

    I bought a bag of cranberries and was tasting one, I gave Nat a lick and she loved it! ate the entire other half, I should really make them into a puree.

    My mom is making potato and leek soup as a starter for Thanksgiving this weekend (Canadian). I am thinking of letting Natalie eat some of that.

    I have a really picky eater, OMG I'm so frustrated!!!!!!!!!
    I got mangoes, they are so yummy, I had a hard time not eating them all while I was making puree for Emily, this morning we started them and what she does???? SHE WONT EAT MANGO EITHER!!!! All she eats is apples, pears, peaches and plums with bananas oh and blueberries with bananas. She doesnt eat the veggies so I made mangoes and papaya so she can have different fruits but no she hated it, I guess I wont even bother trying papaya, I will just mix that in with plums and pray she wont notice, guess I will have to do the same with mangoes too.
    Last night I got her some banana puffs and she loves them, they are smaller than the yogurt melts, she eats them so well.
    I really hope she will start eating more solid pieces soon and I have better luck feeding her veggies that way.
    I'm a picky eater so I know she gets it from me.

    Not sure if I mentioned this yet, but have you tried mixing stuff and slowly increasing the new food, I often do this the first few times when I introduce a food. I'll do about 3 parts rice cereal to 1 part new food, then 50/50 then 3 parts new food + 1 part rice, then pure new food.

    Yes I did that, even 1 spoon of veggies in 2oz of fruits and she wont eat it. I mix the mango with peaches, just a little bit of mango and she will eat it that way but she knows something isnt the same.

    Erika, have you tried taking table food (that she has already been introduced) and mashing/mixing/milling for her to eat. When we went away this weekend, we took Evie to all the restaurants with us, and gave her table food, it got her really excited. Maybe you could try giving her veggies from the table, mashing it in front of her and then giving it to her. Hopefully she might be interested in trying the veggies knowing that you and DH eat it as well.

    I have to start doing that, we still eat so bad, mostly takeout or frozen meals. I keep saying that I need to start cooking more, when I cook we eat after Emily is already in bed, she goes to sleep at about 7pm. Most of the food we eat has salt or sugar in it. I really need to start making healthy meals and start giving some to Emy too, I try to work as much as I can and I kinda put that over cooking, need to make more time tho, cant live like this.

    Erika, that's a pretty difficult situation, working and trying to cook at the same time. I found using the slow cooker on the weekends and freezing meals is pretty good way getting the majority of cooking in, then you just have to reheat during the weeknights.

    So....has anyone started feeding a snack over and above the 3 meals a day? Sometimes when Evie gets 2 naps in during the afternoon: 2-4 pm and then 5:30-7 pm. When she wakes up at 4 pm, it's too early for dinner but then I feel like she might like something to eat. Right now, all I do is nurse when she gets up and nurse again before she naps with playtime in between. What do you guys do?

    I give her snacks, yogurt melts and puffs, not many and I dont have the schedule for that, just whenever I think she would like to have some. She eats every hour because she cant eat solids and formula at the same meal so I have to give her solids or milk every hour or so.

    I have a question about bread, I see people post about giving toast, why toast and not regular bread? And how big of a piece do you give ? Right now I give Emy cheese and tiny bits of bread but its like the size of my pinky nail. I was thinking to melt a slice of cheese on a bread and cut it up for her but was wondering about the toast thing.

    I give Ava bread. She loves it! Since she doesn't have teeth yet, I only give her pieces about the size of the yogurt melt. She loves the inside of pizza crust.

    Well snow peas are gonna be put on hold for a bit, they gave Natalie a nasty case of gas, poor girl was tooting and crying today.

    Yeah bread goes well here, Natalie loves her carbs.
