Re: Nervous about offering finger foods
Instead of offering a new food (like Cheerios), have you offered any foods that she already likes in a different texture? For example, instead of pureed carrots, give little pieces for her to pick up. I'm still not sure about giving DS large pieces for him to hold, but we have done very well with more bite-sized pieces. Scrambled egg yolks were a big hit. They are super soft (and made a huge mess), so he was able to pick them up and gum them around before swallowing.
