Suddenly, baby will be more interested in becoming an active participant at meal times. Physically, she's ready for thicker, chunkier foods.
NOW that baby is between 9 and 11 months, you may notice that her appetite is growing and that she’s eating more solid foods.
For the first half-year (and then some) of her life, your baby is most likely happy for you to feed her when she eats. That may start to change around the age of 9 months.
A feast For the Senses
When your baby eats, the taste is only part of the experience. Now that she's experimenting with finger foods, she'll become more interested in the way her food feels in her hands, its color, and its aroma.
