Finger foods

Hi,

My baby is 7 months in a few days and would like to know when i can introduce finger foods, if so what finger foods are okay at this age (he has got 3 teeth with the 4th one coming out).
I would also like to know what stage of baby food should i be on, at the moment im on Stage 2.. when is it okay to move to stage 3?

Regards

You should definitely start your son on the Purity Stage 3 foods now.Your baby can start with finger foods at 9 months. Soft and mushy foods at first and definitely nothing that could possibly cause choking.
