hi, was just wondering how old your lo's were when you started giving them sandwiches and what fillings did you put in them?
and how old were they by the time they actually started to eat them
Joshua has had mostly pureed food so far and just started on lumpier food but I would like to get him more used to eating finger foods, so far I have given him toast, sticks of veg and rusks but he sucks on them untill they turn to mush but nothing gets swallowed!
I think you can give them form about 6 months on wards.I didnt start giving my LO sandwhiches untill about 3 weeks ago.He loves them though.I usually make him tuna with onion,toamto & mayo,cheese spread and tomato,ham,ham and tomato.You can put most things in as long as its soft enough for them to chew.So I wouldnt put hard cheese in unless its grated etc.Hope that helped.xxx
Ruby has never been a huge sandwich fan, technically they're fine from 6 months but in reality, most babies would have a job with them before about 8-9 months, bread can be quite hard for them to eat at first as it tends to clump up in their mouth and be difficult to break down.
When Ruby was younger I would just put things on toast for her such as mashed avocado, cheese, cream cheese, fruit spread, tuna mayo with sweetcorn, and all those things can go in sandwiches too.
Adam had toast + toppings till 7-8 months, I can't exactly remember when he first had a sandwich but I know he was eating pieces of baguette at our wedding (when he was almost 7 months old).
He was sometimes fussy with them (taking them apart, plain not eating them, etc) till close to a year old. His favourites are nut butter (plain peanut and almond), and cheese, mayo & cucumber. He also likes chicken and roast beef, but doesn't like tuna or egg.
I still haven't given Dean one - i am scared he will take too big a bite. I know I am crazy...I so want to try but what if he takes a big glob and it gets stuck. I let him take toast bite but i holf the bread or rip piueces for him to pick -up....i am nuts i just know it. LOL!
