my little man is almost 9 months and loves stage 3 but is more interested in bigger things. despite him not having any teeth yet hes really good at chewing. would he be ready for graduates or some things cooked soft and cut small for him? hes had soft fruit and a few times baked chicken pieces.

We skipped stage 3(jarred meats give me the heeby jeeby's) And mainly followed baby led weaning. I just made sure everything was cut super small, and was cooked soft enough to gum.

a lot of the jarred meats also smell like cat food too lol. would the gerber graduates be okay on days i don't have time to prepare him a meal? i see a lot of the stuff looks small and soft.

Sorry just saw the question. We skipped graduates all together, way too much sodium. It's actually really easy to feed little one what you eat. Cut meats small, most starches are already soft enough once their cooked (potato, pasta, rice) and what ever veg you are having just toss it in a steamer basket while you cook yours.
