Are babies born knowing what food is?

No. So why, in the name of all things holy, do people persist in saying 'He must be ready for food, he's watching me eat'. Babies watch us do all sorts of things - we're interesting to them!

Why is it a race to get babies to eat early? Why are some people so keen to start them on food which is less calorific and less nutritious?

And why do people then give them bloody smiley faces before they're a year old?!!!!

Why? Why? Why?!

made the mistake of leaving ds2 (5 months) in the "care" of dh while i went shopping the other day and came back to find ds had eaten most of the front page of The Sun.
