Have you noticed that your baby has more food in his face than in his mouth?
When babies are around 7 months old, they began to play with food. Your baby’s goal at lunch is not to eat. They play with meal because it is a way of examining the food in their own terms.
Your baby needs to practice feeding himself, so, it is a good idea to let him practice. You can let him the final spoons to explore and, in this way, you will be sure that the baby will eat what he needs and will practice his new skills.
