My daughter has decided that she should feed herself and will NOT let me feed her with a spoon. I need ideas on what to give her. She only has her 2 bottom teeth. Any ideas would be great thanks!

Don't worry about the amount of teeth she has. Babies don't chew with their teeth anyways until they get their molars.. before that they mostly just gum everything. You can give her small pieces of soft foods, or even harder foods like crackers. I just give my baby teeny pieces of whatever I'm eating, whenever she seems interested. It doesn't have to specifically be "baby" foods.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My wee girl is just over 8 months and she loves large tubes of pasta ... I normally cook it in cheese sauce and encourage her to dip the pasta in the sauce if it gets to dry. She also likes a sanwich made with soft bread and I put a fruit spread on them. Hope this helps a little.
