Are there any downsides?
Since your baby is in control, expect a MESS and that’s okay because the benefits are far more rewarding. Your baby will also have a hard time to get food into his mouth before his ninth month which could make meal time longer.
Please take care that if you’ll serve your baby the same food as the rest of family that babies shouldn't eat food with added sugar or salt. Be ready if your baby needs any help at anytime. What do you need to know?
BEST FIRST FOODS
Banana: cut it into halves to make it easier for your baby to hold.
A piece of soft, cooked carrot: naturally sweet and full of vitamin A to strengthen your little one’s immune system.
Steamed broccoli floret: most babies love the taste of broccoli and its stem provides a built-in ‘handle’ to grab on.
