What to feed a 7.5 mths old baby?

If you were having a dinner party and they had a 7 and half month old bubby coming along, what little things could u make that the bubby could chew on?

I know they have their own baby food, but also like to chew on big peoples food. Don't want to leave them out of dinner hehe

Ask the parents what kinds of solids the baby has been eating and go from there.

At that age, my dd was just starting solids so she was only eating things that were pureed.

I wouldn't worry too much about having anything on hand, especially if the parents have said they'll be bringing baby food. They may have very certain things they are feeding their baby at this point--parents are told to be so careful about the timing of introducing solids because of food allergies and such.

At that age, while dd enjoyed eating her pureed avocado, banana and peas, she was equally content to chomp on a spoon at the dinner table.

Have a good party!

What is the baby's current diet? What "finger foods" are the baby currently eating? Does the baby have any food allergies?

Things that would be appropriate "finger foods" for a child of this age would be:

baby crackers
pieces of bread
plain wafer type cookies
dry cereals, like cheerios
cut and well cooked vegetable pieces, like green beans, potatoes, or peas
pieces of soft ripe fruits (bananas, etc.)

I would skip offering food. Maybe the baby is able to sit in a high chair. Just offer some activity toys like a bright colored rattle, squeeze toy that little ones can grip & lift or scoot around a tray, and an empty sippy cup that the parents can fill.

This might help you make the invitation list for the 1st Birthday Party where you will probably see some real baby eating action.

Your thoughts are appreciated. They are lucky to have a friend like you.
