I NEED HELP!!!

Hi all,

Okay, so my little boy is 7 months old, and he doesn't put anything in his mouth. (Except his hands) Normally I wouldn't think that this is a big deal because that's one less thing for me to worry about. However, it posses a challenge when it comes to giving him things like cheerios, or a teething ring to help with his sore gums. He won't put the cheerios in his mouth, he just sits there with his mouth open and waits for me to do it for him. I have started to help him put the cheerios or ring in his hand, and then move his hand up to his mouth, however he doesn't seem to be catching on.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this challenge, and if so, what should I do?

THANKS
