My daughter (July 15) is not ready for finger foods. I see all these other moms already giving their babies finger foods and my girl isn't ready at all! She just started with the pincer grasp today - I saw her trying to pick up a piece of fluff off the floor. Yesterday I tried giving her these little freeze dried banana bits by Heinz and she would just push them around and wouldnt pick them up to eat them. I put one in her mouth and she swallowed it WHOLE lol.
Is she far behind? Is there anything I can do to encourage her to learn? She has been on solids since 5 months.
I am actually really scared for her to start finger food anyway, I'm so scared that she will choke!
