BLW is great! Personally, I waited until 12m because I wanted my son to get the maximum benefits of breastmilk for as long as possible. By that age, I just let him try anything he wanted from our plate. He was still choking, so I didn't push it, but by 12m 2w, he wasn't choking and would snack on pretzels. He still wasn't that interested in food until closer to 18m.
I would just wait until he can feed himself. It's SO much easier than trying to make separate baby food and trying to feed them. trust me!
