Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
He's had purees since 4 months. But I have given him tastes of stuff since around 5 or 6 months.
Now most of the meals at home are what we eat. At daycare, we still give purees, because he's in a temporary daycare for a few weeks and it's easier than trying to send meals along every day.
I might side eye you too, sorry! DS started BLW at 6 months and is a happy adventurous eater. I can't imagine still being chained to the spoon!
blondek8:Mine started refusing to be spoon-fed around 7 months so we had no choice but to make the switch to finger/table food.
This, but B was 8 months to the day. She really gave us no choice (not that I was complaining--table foods are much easier). But I wouldn't side-eye you at all.
Us exactly. Except she started to refuse purees around 8 months.

We give her table foods at least once or twice a week but it takes forEVER for her to eat them and sometimes she'll forget how to move the food to the back of her mouth to swallow. If we're in a hurry, we just go ahead and give her purees because it's so much easier and quicker.
You might want to go ahead and get started trying out the table foods. Sometimes it takes a while for them to figure out the new textures.
We started right around 8 months. I had only been doing baby food and during a trip to see some relatives, everyone acted like I was ridiculous for not having started table food. It wasn't like I had been against it, I honestly just thought I was supposed to be doing baby food. We just started the baby food at 6 months, after all.
Anyway, now she is an excellent table food eater. She tries and loves pretty much everything and I have fun making little healthy meals for her (while I myself eat like crap haha).
