Introducing Finger Foods To My Baby

A few days out from 9 months old I decided my daughter was ready for some finger foods. Sticking to the same flavours she has already tried I gave her to them as whole foods for her to explore and chew on.

My daughter has 4 teeth at the moment- two up the top and 2 down the bottom. For this reason I felt comfortable giving her whole foods as I knew she was able to bite into the food and chew them up.

We started on a small boiled carrot, some pasta and cheese. This was a huge success! The carrot was just like a rusk, allowing her to hold onto it and chew away at it.

We then went on to trial broccoli and cauliflower as whole florets.

I was absolutely amazed to see her bite off little bits and chew them up. At this point I realised my little baby was no little baby anymore.

I have found that giving her foods like this is a great snack to have between meals- however it is extremely messy so be prepared with a messy mat or plastic sheet down on the ground.

Our first lot of finger foods 😄😄 #almost9monthsold #babyfood #homemadebabyfood #mumlife #firsttimemum

Now this is not expert advice so if you have any concerns always check with your doctor before giving anything to your child.
