Ruby was 8 months, Scarlett I didn't offer until 7 months but she swallowed right away. She wasn't always interested in eating but if she was, she really did eat. She's a great eater now at nearly 1.
She was usually asleep at lunchtime until maybe 9.5 months so she ate 2 meals reasonably well from quite early on.
Really, just give lo what you're eating provided it's healthy. I fussed about trying to make things easy for ruby, and never had time with Scarlett, she has had all.sorts of things from the start and is by far the better eater. Soft food like porridge, bread soaked in soup, mashed potatoes etc are fun but messy!

we've just started blw this week and it's def not getting eaten yet. DS is absolutely loving it though! i know that in theory he can have everything at 6 months but i'm a bit nervous so we've started with slices of avocado, banana, ripe pear, pancakes, cooked apple, cooked carrot etc. i've just started giving him a bowl of porridge for breakfast too which is hilarious. i literally hose him down afterwards!!
That's where struggle with blw. I only eat one meal a day and Isabelle is lactose, dairy and soy intolerant re she can't usually have what we have.
I didn't want to blw for that reason but Izzy refuses to be spoon fed unless doing it herself. So looks like she chose blw for me lol. She's very independent for a 6 month old lol x
