Re: Tongue thrust at 8 months?
I don't think it's out of the ballpark for a kid to still tongue-thrust at 8 months. I mean, that reflex is usually gone by around 6 months but for every kid who loses it early there's sure to be one who loses it late.
Could it be that your LO isn't tongue-thrusting- i.e. thrusting food out of her mouth- so much as she is using her outthrust tongue to get food off her lips?
