Biting the spoon?

My DD bites her spoon when I'm feeding her. Do you think she is ready for solid foods?

  • Not baby food but like solid foods. Like gerber puffs and yogurt melts.

  • How old is she?
    Most likely.
    My son (11 months) has been eating solids for a while now, just cut into tiny pieces. I was told that once he knows how to push food to the side of his mouth, he's learned to gum/chew his food. It's trial and error. Try her with something like a soft piece of fruit and see how she does. Never know till you try!
    My son still bites the spoon though when eating baby food or applesause, etc. He's teething so it's a nice relief for him. I make a game of it like shaking it gently and making a "grr" noise. Oh man he cracks up and I'm able to get the spoon out :o)

  • Just try giving her a yogurt puff. Then you'll be able to determine if she's comfortable chewing. Again though, depends on age.

  • She is six months old but she has been eating baby food for a while now. since like 3 months. The doctors said to do it. She eats fresh fruit out of her mesh feeder.

  • At 6 months she should be old enough to finger feed herself things like bananas, sweet potatoes, shaved meat, steamed veggies.

    There is good info on solids at www.kellymom.com
