20 ways to use the Sling in your favor
Let your baby explore and feel the textures of her food with her fingers. Although it can be messy, it’s great fun for her, and a fantastic way to help her get more comfortable and familiar with different textures. Try putting some newspaper or a cheap shower curtain under your little one’s highchair to catch the mess.
At about seven or eight months, your baby may start to reach for food on other people’s plates. She loves copying friends and family, and may be keen to try what you’re eating. If she’s reluctant to try a particular food, letting her see you enjoying it can be a great way to encourage her.
