    Finger Foods??

    Patrick is 8 1/2 months old. He eats his baby food like a champ. He has 4 teeth now. So I've been trying to give him the yougurt melts and the gerber puffs. He wants nothing to do with them, other to pick them up and throw them on the floor like it is a game. Ironic, because he puts EVERYTHING else in his mouth. lol If I try to put them in his mouth he may gum it a bit and then eat it, or he will make a face and spit it out. Should I be worried that he is not really eating any of the finger foods yet. Anything else I can do to help him figure this out?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Every baby is different & I've been told that sometimes they aren't ready til 9 months or later when they develop the pincher reflex. He'll do it momma, on his own time

    What about little pcs of cheese, berries, bananas, etc... Small little pcs like the puffs and stuff and see if he thinks those are better. DS#2 much preferred "real" food as finger foods rather than the puffs, etc...

    Well tonight he was chomping on them like there was no tomorrow. lol

    Sherb - I don't know why, but I'm so scared to feed him real food. I'm so afraid I will give him something he shouldn't be eating.
