Homemade baby food stage 3

How do you get the right texture? When DS moves to a new stage i start out with jarred food so i could get a sense of the textures. I don't want to set DS back, and he likes the textures of stage 3 foods - how do I keep the little chunks and right texture of stage 3?

By the time DS hit stage 3, I was basically giving him regular food but cut into tiny pieces. I no longer pureed anything.

I never gave stage 3. I give stage 2 or regular purees still at 10 months but am starting to give less and less. DD prefers to feed herself so I give her pieces of squash, bananas, carrots, peas, etc.

Same here...I don't think I even necessarily went to an official stage 2. I started out pureeing and then once they started with things like puffs I just moved to soft, cut up foods and let them feed themselves.

I was very nervous at first also but my ped assured me that their gums are as strong as our teeth so they can chomp the food very well. DS did fine with it.

DS1 was fully on table food by 10.5 months, but didn't cut his first tooth until 13.5 months. They don't need teeth to eat food. Give him small pieces of cheese or cut up soft food like banana and avocado.
