My son just turned 6m old started baby food at 5m for reflex problems. He has two teeth and eats the baby Mum-Mum and loves them. He gets board with eating cause he wants to do it him self. Should I start giving him finger foods?

Okay awesome I was wondering about those He loves fruit and freaks when he sees us eating it and I feel bad cause I'm afraid he will choke lol. But I will get one of those tomorrow!

supervise him/her the entire time but my son eats grapes, nabs, gold fish..and fruit. They have this thing at Target..its a net and you put the fruit in it and let them chew and suck and they won't choke on the pieces because its in a net..but they can get the flavor and get used to chewing...great for teething too!!

I started feeding my son table food around 6 months. Only on occasion though...I give him little snackables but still give him his bottle and babyfood.

No for the fear of choking unless its the finger food that turns mushy with slober

big ones...farleys biscuits are great and they can do them themselves... my son is 6 mths too and hes had dry toast, he got a mini cupcake on my birthday, that was fun, but i still haven't given him cheerios or anything... he likes steamed to mushy whole baby carrots and we just let him do it himself
