My LO loves food. She's almost seven months now, and if she sees us eating, she'll try and take the food from us. The other day at the breakfast table, she lunged forward in her chair, pulled my plate to her, grabbed a pancake, and shoved it in her mouth. Whenever she sees someone eating, she starts gumming her mouth and drooling. She's an early crawler and sits herself up but doesn't have teeth yet or a very sophisticated pincer grasp (she's getting there though!).
The advice from the pediatrician is to introduce only one solid every four days or so, but since she just wants what's on our plates, I'm finding it difficult to limit her. Tonight we went out for dinner and she scarfed the banana I'd brought for her, then had some guacomole, gnawed on a steamed carrot, and then had a little less fajita sauce than she wanted. The fajita sauce was new for her, as was the carrot, and the spices in the guacomole. So... I really don't want to mess up her gut and I'm confused about why new solids need to be limited. Is it bad to let a baby her age have table food? Multiple table foods?
