Little Boo started showing an interest in food at 5 1/2 months, so we started giving him little tastes of food and gradually entered into the weaning process. He is now nearly 9 months old and only just starting to actually eat the food we give him! It has been over 3 months of messy play with food before he decided that food is for eating and he’ll give it a go... now there’s no stopping him! He’s got the two handed shovel-food-into-face manoeuvre down to a fine art and he’s loving his life.l every meal time - precious. Of course he is still an absolute milk monster, he hasn’t dropped any milk feeds yet so he’s just getting extra calories to pack on more of that baby chub, as if he needs it!
