How do you stop your baby doing raspberries while eating?

My almost 10 month old son just started doing raspberries while eating -- breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's driving me crazy! Any suggestions on how to get him to stop? I tried making an angry and frustrated face and even saying no while shaking my head but that just eggs him on more. So frustrated! Please help.

  • this is just something kids go through, and it's actually a good learning experience for them... they are learning what their mouths can do, and learning about different textures. I wouldn't worry about it, because they will grow out of it sooner that you know. Take some cute videos though... you'll appreciate them when he's older.

  • Just enjoy him. He's a baby. Do you really want to spend meal time with angry faces? The food feels different in his mouth. He is exploring. It's important to experiment!

  • Ignore it the best you can. If it is towards the end of the meal let him know he is all done.

  • My DD used to do raspberries right on my boobs when she breastfed....LOL! She would crack me up! Miss those days...

  • LOL. I remember that. Just ignore it as best you can. If he's already eaten at least some, it's a signal that he's bored with eating and it's time for mealtime to be over.

  • My 10 month old does this as well. It's a phase that will quickly pass. Keep a lot of towels handy and don't wear a white shirt while feeding the baby. :)
