I have a 9 month old and I am scared that she will choke. Also I am not sure what is for this age. I have started giving her some banana but not sure what else to try. Any feedback would be great, thanks.

  • Have you consulted your worries with the childhood nurse at the baby clinic? Mine was a great help and will offer you lots of suggestions. I used to give mine soft foods , nothing hard at all, eg No nuts
    Try soft vegies and fruits eg stew apples , rice , soft carrots , bread ( not the crust ) etc…

  • cruskits with vegemite. or toast and vegemite,

  • I got this little net looking thing for my son and you put chopped up fruit in it and they suck out the juices. Messy but he loved it

  • If bub is ready for solids which they usually are by 9mths – has control control, can swallow, head control, can sit up unassisted, interested in food etc then we would lightly steam carrot sticks, broccoli. We gave apple cut into fingers, pear.

  • sit with them why they eat but i would consider finger sandwiches,soft fruits,my friend has been using these crackers for kids they are like miniature rice crackers you can buy them at Woolworth.He is 10 mths old.

  • French Toast, Vegemite and cheese sandwiches, thin sausage, Celery sticks, soften carrot sticks in microwave, sliced apple pieces, strawberries, peeled grapes, made my own wedges. BUT I NEVER LEFT THEM ALONE to eat. I always sat with mine and had my lunch too.

  • have been :) she is eating well since :P

  • there are some good comments here

  • all soft foods banana orange slice and stuff

  • Good question, start with soft foods maybe.

  • Give bub some toast. She may do a little bit of gagging, but this is developmental.

  • It depends on how well you little one chews her food. My little one at that age I was giving him vegemite sandwiches, apple (remove skin), watermelon, rusks,. He would go through any of it. I find now him being a toddler its a lot harder to feed him

  • It depends on how well you little on chews her food. My little on At he age I was giving him vegemite sandwiches, apple (remove skin), water melon

  • toast with the crust cut off. greated cheese, yogurt, mashed avocado, mashed baked beans

  • Toast is a good one. My girl loves avocado and toast, it’s good for them to learn to hold things with their fingers.
