Hi I have 2 other children but weaned them a lot earlier than dd3. I waited until she was 6 months and sponsor feeding took a while she had that thrust reflex thing where she kept spitting out food till about 7 months. Now she is doing really well with being spoon fed but she's having problems self feeding - I mean finger food. She is nearly 9 months. Am sure my other 2 had the hang of it by now. What age were your babies? She can also still be a bit wobbly in her high chair. Any others like this?
Hi she picked up a breadstick yesterday, put it in her mouth, broke half of it but breadstick fell from her mouth. She then threw the rest on the floor. She seems to be progressing fine developmentally but do think she's a bit slower than my other two. As I said, she's a bit wobbly and tends to launch herself to food so we support her with a pillow. She picked up a plastic star (confetti type) but. Didn't automatically put it in her mouth. Took it off her before then! Shouldn't compare DC - they were weaned about 8 weeks before dd3. Not sure I'd leave it till 6 months,again!
