3 month old craving my food

Whenever I eat in front of my 3 months old she gets agitated and starts whining. Should I be hiding from her when I eat? She does the same when she sees her brother eating.

  • Awww she just likes the way it smells.
    If it bothers you try to eat when she is napping.
    Or feed her before you eat so she is full.

  • Dont give her any! LOL. She might just smell it and be curious but I doubt she is craving it. Try bouncing her in a bouncy chair while you eat, that always worked for me.

  • i know they say to start at 4-6 months, but i see no harm in giving her a little lil guy did that too....he's a big eater (and no not overweight). i wouldnt mix her a lot though, bc its a mess and its going to take a while for her to learn to swallow.
