happy 6 months to my baby!!

So Harley just turned 6 months old today. So on to solids. This morning she's had rice which she loved! So what I'm wondering is how did you mummy's start solids.. did you do one a day? Two a day? Did you give finger food from the start? I'm worried about chocking that's why I'm just mashing everything up to get her used to it! Need help lol! Thank you.
