    I am beyond lazy when it comes to cooking majority of the time so jars of baby food it is.

    Matt is only almost 18 lbs but his doctor says he's just thin, healthy but thin. If he's still on his weight curve then I wouldn't be concerned if I were you.

    My baby was 15 lbs at 2 months. He has just started eating baby food today, but I plan on making my own. I only have a few jars right now because I just wanted to test him on it and see when he was ready for a spoon in general, and now he is.

    I make my own baby food.

    I just slice/dice and steam in a little stem basket then zoom up with a blender stick or in the mini food processer. A ricer (food mill) also works great.

    I do not ever start baby food till 6 months.

    We make our own baby food. We don't buy some over priced fancy baby food maker though. Blender, food processor, a fork... it just has to be mashed up is all to prevent choking.

    We didn't start solids til 6 months so she is actually old enough to start having soft finger foods such as pieces of banana if I wanted. She is fully ready for solids; she has the ability to understand mashing and swallowing and putting things into her mouth to mash and swallow.

    Bella is 15lbs and 6 months old... I usually cut, steam and use a blender (we don't have a food processor). If I'm feeling kind of lazy I buy frozen fruits and vegetables to save time (and money). I haven't ventured to the meat yet though... it intimidates me.

    We started at 6-7 months as well. Steam veggies in the microwave and then just throw it in the food processor. nothing hard about it. Bananas are the easiest because they are already soft and mushy.
