First, make sure he has a teething ring, one that you can toss into the freezer to cool it down (make sure it is "cool" not icy cold). That should help more than any type of food.

Are you breast feeding?

At 1 year old, I'd recommend staying with pureed food. Obviously a pediatrician would be better able to say what is best for that individual child (since they all grow at different rates).

It might be a worthwhile investment it get a food pureer so you can make your own baby food. That should also give you different settings so that you can start with completely pureed food and slowly work to more solid foods with a smooth transistion.

About $60 for a decent (you can find cheaper and more expensive) one. They cost some money up front, but save on the cost of baby food.

Of course, make sure it is BPA free.

Though, another thing you could do, is stop breast feeding, but continue with a breast pump (I'm assuming the "hurting" is from the teething). Though if you are working, that means you'll likely need a fast electric pump, and those are expensive. My wife doesn't work, so she can use a hand pump. Much cheaper, but it can't work for a 15 minute break at work, it takes like 30+ minutes.

If you already have a breastpump, that is one.

I'd recommend hitting up the Baby and Bump forum.

Did you stop breast feeding cold turkey? I would think that weening the little one off would yield better results.

In the baby isle of the grocery store, there is 'rice cereal'. I would stick with that and other baby food.

I can't remember whether or not we fed my daughter yogurt or not, but you could also ask your primary care provider for suggestions.

Make pureed meals and batch freeze them in normal ice block containers. Then it's just a matter of thawing/heating a block each meal.
