My LO is only 16 weeks old, but a couple days ago while eating mashed potatoes for supper she kept looking at it, and as I brought them to my mouth she opened up her mouth too. She's been doing this ever since. Every single time I try to eat anything she acts like she wants to eat too. What am I supposed to do? When my first 2 were younger 4 months was when everyone said to start on cereals and such, now everyone says 6 months. In another thread I said I will be waiting until 6 months, but now she's showing some signs. She isn't sitting up on her own yet, but her neck/head are very stable. She's never really been one of those wobbly headed babes.
It was funny, my DS (8 years old) has a love for garlic toast and we had some left over from last night's supper - so he was eating some this morning. Jazzy kept smackin her gums and tongue and trying to get at him and his food.
What should I do? What would you do? Are purees and mashed up food actually "solids" or is that more so the cut up pieces?
