Feeding Himself Worked For Us

Jack is now 7 months old so we have been trying baby food for a little over a month now. We have tried every kind of baby food out there and he has showed little interest. Every baby loves bananas right? Not Jack. Applesauce? nope. We even tried mashed potatoes. He might would take a few bites now and again but nothing substantial. I decided to buy some yogurt bites that dissolve once they are in the mouth. It took him a little time to get the hang of picking up the little pieces but after 30 minutes of really working it he finally figured it out. I was sing "Eye of the Tiger" to him for motivation (I really did-I have to humor myself). 

Once he got those little fingers working I decided to just dump some applesauce on his tray. He did great with it. He just scooped it up with his fingers and went to town. He made a mess but it was worth it just to see him enjoying solids. Here are some pictures of his little messy self. 


  1. I love seeing messy babies eating. I have so many food pictures of Violet!

  2. Oh my goodness, that is too cute! Our doctor said we could start solids whenever we wanted, but we'll probably start around 5 or 5.5 months. He wants us to start with rice cereal and I'm SO excited to see how it goes!

  3. It's a little messy but glad he's learning! :)
