Now that Toby is eight months old, he has been eating more solid foods. We’ve given him pretty basic foods so far (carrots, bananas), and I’m not loving the baby-food jars. Then yesterday I flipped through this inspiring book, which encouraged a surprisingly wide range of real foods for young babies, including pork chops to teeth on and egg yolks with salt.

Fellow mamas, I’d love to ask you: What did you feed your babies? I would be so grateful for tips!
