  • well, around that age he should be able to put those smaller items in his mouth..it's not until around 1ish that he should start to learn to spoon feed himself. All kids develop at diff rates, he could decide he doesn't want to eat those things until he's 1..if he's eating stage 3 foods and he's good with chunks then he can have the baby mum mum cookies and stuff. or the Gerber puffs. Just supervise him eating it for the first little while to make sure he's ok with it, they all dissolve well, so should be ok.
