I've slowly been giving DD "real" food. She has been eating stage 2 foods for a while and then I gave her puffs, yogurt melts, bananas and cheerios and now we have moved on to bigger and better things lol. She seems to enjoy cut up pieces of fruit, yogurt, mashed potatoes and avocado. Today we tried cottage cheese with some stage 2 pears mixed in with it. She did not like it. I'm thinking it was the texture/consistency of it. I will try again tomorrow morning to see if she's changed her mind. I also bought some stage 3 foods and last night gave her sweet corn and carrots that had pieces of carrots in it that she had to chew and she was totally thrown off by it. Again it didn't seem to be her thing. Hoping as I continue to give her things she will start to get the whole idea of "chewing" and won't be turned off by things that aren't pureed.
