Apologies if this has already been posted, I checked a few pages and didn't see it.
My almost 7 months old just started solids a couple weeks ago. He was completely formula fed up until that point. We chose not to give him solids until 6 months due to him being 7 weeks premature. He has an 8 oz. bottle every 3 or 4 hours and a 6 oz. one twice a day with his baby food. He can only sit up a very short period of time, but can grasp and pick up things quite well.
Right now, we give him the Gerber fruits and veggies, which he loves, but we want to introduce him to REAL food. He opens for the spoon and seems to swallow most of it, but when is it OK to start giving him things like Cheerios or puffs? What kind of signs do I look for to see if he's ready?
I also want to start giving him real bananas and other fruits sooner than later.
