Ds is almost 9 months. I have a frozen fruit mix that I was going to thaw and mash for him to eat. It has blueberries, cherries, raspberries and blackberries. He has had all but blackberries. Is it okay for him to have blackberries? I looked at a chart I have saved on my computer and it doesn't mention raspberries or blackberries.

I let mine eat anything really at that point. I would let him, especially if he's had no issues with berries in the past.

Okay, thanks. Do you cook the fruit first or just give raw? I still cook everything for him but would like to start giving him mashed fruit that is raw.

We did baby led weaning. He ate what we ate, how we ate it. I've never cooked his fruit though.

This. By 9 months mine was eating pretty much everything including eggs and peanut butter.

Yeah I think he had peanut butter around that age, maybe 10 months, and honey by 11 1/2 months I think?

I started it to sweeten his oatmeal instead of sugar. That and I made him a peanut butter banana and honey quesadilla. He was in heaven lol

I am not really sure what exactly baby led weaning is. I know the basic idea but I wasn't sure if they can eat everything at this point. He has weaned himself of purees recently, he likes texture so I have been cooking him things for his meals but he doesn't eat what we eat. I didn't think he would be able to have the spices, fat, etc and I thought the only meat he could have right now is turkey or chicken.

Baby led weaning made simple: Cook dinner for the family, toss it on their tray, in appropriate sizes of course, and say "Have at it kid". LOL

I find I cook healthier now that I used to but there are few meals we have that the kids get something else. Such a when we do wings. They both eat curry. No reason to feed your kid bland food. Spicy food might upset their tummy but most spices that are just there for flavor are fine. If you are really worried you can serve them first then add spices.

I think the only things we don't serve Rory are buffalo chicken, and I make him bbq chicken, and then general tso's chicken, stuff like that. Stuff that makes our tongues tingle lol

Yep sounds about right. Although they both love chicken tikka marsala but its fairly mild. Just lots of flavors.

We do paleo, so its high fat and no grains. Would he be able to handle bacon, pork, beef, coconut oil, olive oil, clarified butter and stuff like that? And for veggies we mostly eat steamed broccoli, brussel sprouts or salads so I didn't think he could have any of that.

My daughter ate all meat (beef, bacon, pork) and she loves broccoli. I mean if it causes issues dont continue to feed it but you can try.
