Yep, like those who said above, rice cereal to start. There is a low pro cereal, which Jacob moved to when he started diet but never gave up on the rice cereal, it was just another option.

Mum Mum Rice Rusks allowed him to feed himself. Which he LOVES.

We were able to use a majority of baby fruits from Heinz, but also opted to make our own. Same with veggies.. We made many of our own, in puree form.

Fruit has always been free in Jacob's points, so we relied on it quite a bit, cause he loves it! We moved off baby applesauces and moved to the snack size ones we give the other two kids in their lunches, that also gave more variety :)

Enjoy. Eventually this will feel like old hat, even thou it doesnt seem it right now :)
