Food before one?

I’ve got an adorable six month old baby girl and recently we started trying foods. So far we’ve tried avocado, sweet potato and baby oatmeal. She sits up great and seems really interested when I eat so I figured she was ready. But the problem is that she still spits out a bunch of it and really doesn’t seem to get the whole opening her mouth and swallowing thing quite yet. Should we just wait and try again in a couple of weeks?

Eating at six month is more to help them learn how to handle solid foods. As they eat more solids then with bottle/breast feed less. Not until a year will they get all their nutrient from solid foods.

Food before one is just for fun! We lived by that and feeding has been zero stress, our daughter is healthy, happy and an adventurous eater. Just turned 3. Six month old recommendation by pediatricians is being found to cause early onset of food allergies Check out books on baby led weaning and see why it’s so beneficial!
