Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the question.

Dried fruits are fine! I recommend blending or mashing them up and feeding it to her, either alone or mixed in cereal. You can feed her homemade cereal. You can mix in things like breastmilk, vegetables, or fruit. Continue to breastfeed her until at least 12 months of age.
