Hi, my daughter has always been a hungry baby and I was advised to move her on to solids at 4 months, she's now nearly 6 months.
I feed her puréed fruit and vegetables I make myself and sometimes I use Ella's kitchen pouches. I was thinking of introducing some finger foods as she is always grabbing the spoon off me and grabbing food off adults plates if she's close enough.
I'm just a bit confused as to what I should give, whether it should be cooked or not but mainly what size it should be. Any help will be appreciated.

I started with purees, and then the first finger foods I started on were things that aren't too slippery (banana all got sucked in and then coughed out!) - so things like whole pasta spirals, parsnip and carrot cut lengthways, melon strips, toast cut into soldiers. As long as it was long enough for him to hold some and get the top part in his mouth then he was happy!

Thanks for that smile I wasn't sure whether it was meant to be long and thin or cubes but was worried about choking in cubes!
