So my DS will be 6 months old in 10 days.
He can sit unassisted, he just lost his tongue thrust reflux and can pick things up with his fingers an put food to his mouth.
But I'm not quite ready to let him actually eat food yet. I don't think he's ready.
But he's interested.
Yesterday I was eating raw carrots and he stole one!
I let him play with it thinking he wouldn't get it to his mouth, but he did.
So today I set him in the high chair and let him play with the carrots. He banged them together. He chewed on them. He seemed to enjoy it.
He didn't actually get any bites, but I think it felt good on his teeth to chew on the hard carrots.
My question is, is it okay?
Have I ruined his virgin gut? I mean he didn't actually get bites of the food maybe a little juice.
