How is baby doing picking up finger foods? How is baby liking them?

We started Jacob on some finger foods last week. I cut up some bananas and gave him some cherrios to try. He did pretty good picking them up but I think he still needs some more time to get used to the texture. We have basically been doing pureeds up until this point so he wasn't sure about the texture of the bananas and spit them back out. After several tries he really seemed to like the cherrios. I also gave him some baby puffs and he seemed to like those also.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

JR loves finger foods (who am I kidding- he loves all food!) He eats puffs, the cheeto things from Gerber, yogurt melts, Cheerios, goldfish, and his favorite is puree on a rice cake. We do baby led weaning so everything is a finger food!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Rylynn likes the puffs, but that's all I've given her. I'm just not comfortable giving her things she would need to chew when she still has no teeth to chew with. Some days all she wants is formula anyways. I can plead and beg her to eat her dinner (usually a meat and veggie puree) and she just won't take more than a few bites.

Kira loves finger food (and even stuff that isn't finger food, like sand ). She still is on pureed foods mostly, but we give her bits of whatever we're eating, plus tons of puffs.

She LOVES them. I have yet to find something she couldn't eat, pick up, and just love. She doesn't mind textures. Grady had a hard time with them.
