thanx rach xx
My little girl stared having half a rusk at about 6 months. Now she's 7 1/2 months she happily eats blueberry's, strawberries and rasberries that are all halved, not to mention toast and bread etc (like a human bin at the minute! ). I hope this is a little help though i sure more people will be able to give you more advice.

hiya i am mum to ashley who is nearly 3, i gave him farleys when he was 6months but i put a bit of warm milk with it, and it softened up and i fed it to him with a spoon, he enjoyed it and then when he was a tad bit older i gave it to him as a finger food, he enjoyed it, but he enjoyed hipp organic custard and even lil tubs of ambrosio they are good, some of the food is defiently overpriced, and you can find our food is much better for them.
good luck from mummy of ashley
karen- thanx for the advice, will bare all that in mind, its so helpfully to get advice off experienced mums like urself. congrats an good luck with number 7, very brave lady lol x

donna- what news was this about biscuits? i havent seen anythin,is it 2 do with rusks or normal biscuits, like u say somethings u have to take with a pinch of salt but do you think its anythin 2 worry about? x
my little boy was not being satisfied with milk from very early so we weaned him on to baby rice from 12 weeks. by 6 months old, after we'd gone through the fruit and veg puree stage we were basically giving him all our meals whizzed up really fine. i have been adamant form day 1 that he was not going to be fed on baby jars and was going to have all home made food and its worked really well for us.
At 6 months you can give your baby fruit, veg, meat, fish and start introdusing eggs and dairy products such as cheese and yoghurt. A i say Theo was on full adult meals blended up by this stage - his favourites were and still are roast dinner and spag bol! just make sure that you add alot of milk or water or even gravy to the food when you blend it and it will go in to a puree - we followed his main meal with a desert such as apple puree and custard or banana and custard. Theo will eat almost anything and is the least fussy eater i know.
rusks are ok every now and then as a snack or treat but there are healthier options like strawberries or banana to suck and chew on. dont worry about the teeth - Theos first two hve only just come through at 11 months and as i say he has managed fine. as long as you stay with your baby it will be ok.
hope this helps some x
milk isnt enough for my 3 week old baby girl any sugestions on anything else i can give her ?
Rusks are yummy I believe it's at 6 months, but check the packaging to be sure!
