My daughter was born at 30 weeks gestation. She is now 9 months old 6 months adjusted. She has been eating baby food and cereal for a couple months now and drinks some juice. Mostly to help her poop. It seems like most other 9 months are eating more than just baby food. Do I need to go by adjusted age to see what she should be eating right now?? And what is this thing she might have against textures? I tried texture baby food and it's not like she is getting chocked its just seems like she don't like the texture of it? And I have heard about a bag thing u put like real food in and they can basically just gum it?? Idk what they r called but would like to get her one. Please help.

ive been thinking the same thing..my son is 10 months old..i give him cereal and fruit in the mornng and a veggie/gerber dinner at night. im too scared to give him "normal" food..he only has 3 teeth...he mainly still eats formula.
He does however love the gerber puffs and yogurt drops.
I'll introduce more types of food when i'm ready and he's ready. I also want to take a cpr course...just in case. Cause im terriefied he'll choke.

Braylee has no teeth. I know CPR and everything. I haven't tried the yogurt things yet I have some tho. She mainly eats formula still too and sometimes eats fruit around lunch time and a veggie and a fruit with cereal for supper. She is usually pretty satisfied with a 8oz bottle when she wakes up. Idk just all the ppl I know there babies her age are already eating Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes and just more table food than baby food.

When my son was still an infant (he was born at 28.1 weeks), it took him awhile before he even wanted to try baby food. He seemed to HATE it for some reason. I ended up just having to give him real food like mashed potatoes and other soft foods he could eat until he was ready for the more solid foods.
I wouldn't be too worried about it though, as long as you are offering her lots of food, she will eat it when she is ready. I know my older son (who wasn't even preemie) didn't get his teeth in until after he was a year old, he would eat formula all day and only have 3 baby foods a day and maybe some snacks. His favorite was formula until after he turned a year old though.

She loves baby food she gets 2 or 3 jars a day and cereal too. She seems pretty content just didn't know if I should be worried about her not eating like other babies do. But she ain't like most babies. So. Thank u
