HELP / IDEAS / ADVICE for feeding a baby!

smallfinds | Oct 6, 2010 08:32 AM

My son is not quite 10 months old and he's been eating the usual purees (homemade), of which were steamed (not roasted, which I know would provide a lot more flavor), certain mashed produce with some texture (banana, avocado, egg yolk, potatoes), tiny pasta, cheerios, shredded cheese, yogurt, oatmeal.

I feel somewhat stuck in what to feed him, or how, I'm not sure if it's because things are so open it's overwhelming or it's my first baby and I don't want to do anything wrong/harmful. I know there is common sense but I'd love to know what others have done.

How did you do it?
How much and how often?
How did you start finger foods?
What did you use?
How did you prepare it?
How did you transition baby into eating the family meal like everyone else?

I'm really truly excited to be feeding him, and about what I can/could do, I just feel somewhat lost in it.
