  • my daughter used to love frozen peas. I would dump af ew on her high chair tray and by the time she could get ahold they were ot to hard to eat and they are supposed to help with teething. sounds gross but he loved them.

  • how is her pincer grasp?

  • You should do it when you're comfortable with it.

    I did it with all of mine at 6 months.

  • You can introduce finger foods when baby can grasp them, Start with soft things that can be just kinda mashed and then swallowed. Move on to firmer items when baby"s teeth come in.
