    My kids both loved avocado, though that was a little slippery and hard to grasp.

    Also, fruit. I would give my daughter apple wedges and peach wedges and let her suck on them. She also loved steak. She would suck all the juices out of it.

    Avocado, tomato, small bits of tortilla. I LOVED my babysafe feeder with both kids. Fruits, meats, essentially everything went in that. I did babyled weaning with my second and thought it was the greates thing ever. So much easier than tons of baby food. Good for you.

    How old is your kid/s that you want to do this with again, Delma?

    I did this with J I guess, but he was exclusively breast fed till 12 months - no solids, cereals, juices etc. at all and then I planned to gradually introduce foods, but he pretty much started eating everything in sight right away, so I don't have any advice. I THINK the first things we tried were avocados, sweet potatoes, rice, various fruits, applesauce - those are the ones I remember, but it pretty quickly became whatever was on our plates.

    I let M just eat (suck on) bits of what the rest of were eating. I think we started with bananas and boiled carrots. He loved sucking on steak strips.

    @ Amneris The twins are only 22 wks right now I'm just get ready :). I wasn't able to produce enough milk for the twins sadly so they are formula fed :(.

    How did you know your child was ready? I've read info about baby led weaning and I've wanted to exclusively BF until 12 mos. With M, I ended up giving her cereal at 4 mos (she hated it and moved on to fruits and veggies) because she was sitting up unassisted and she was showing an interest in solids. Now I'm going through the same thing with E. Mealtime is getting increasingly hard. She stares at us while we eat, if she's sitting on my lap while I'm eating she opens her mouth everytime I bring the food to my mouth, she reaches for it and/or lunges toward the food, and she always gets upset to the point of crying. But she's so young- she's almost 17 weeks.

    Blame it on the cell phone...

    I gave my daughter fist-sized pieces of food she could hold starting at around E's age. I figured if she was ready, she'd actually ingest some, if she wasn't she'd just play with them.

    I started with Luke at about 4 months. His doctor and WIC were recommending it at the time. Little bugger hadn't doubled his birthweight yet and they thought it would help. Seemed to do the trick and he loved being part of the dinner table. It was also much easier to wean with soft solids. He could hold them, we weren't a slave to jars and spoons all the time. We could all enjoy a meal at the same time instead of me being left alone to eat a lukewarm dinner because I was busy feeding baby. I did still use some jarred food at lunch time and out to dinner, etc.
