    I'm a little nervous about trying Luca with finger foods, but I'm hoping it will work wonders and finally get his arms/hands moving. What's best to start him out on? xx

    I think things like boiled/steamed carrot sticks, broccoli, toast, porridge sticks is what I found easiest to start with hun. I was very anxious this time round but the more I did it the easier it got hun. There gag reflex is more forward than ours so they will gag rather than choke from what I've read. Lily loves her finger foods now xxx

    We tried Eva on rusks first x you can get reduced sugar rusks and I figured it would be good as they melt in the mouth x

    She has carrots, toast, meat and broccoli. She just tends to throw most of it on the floor! X

    I love giving my daughter finger foods, which is largely her way of feeding as I do BLW.

    I give her:

    Toast
    Crumpet
    Sandwich (soft cheese, cheese, tuna filling)
    Scrambled egg (just tried this week).
    Cucumber
    Red pepper
    Banana
    Strawberries
    Carrot
    Parsnip

    Have fun :)

    Did she like scrambled egg rooster? My lg hated it

    I think my lg likes food too much to throw it on the floor, she's pretty good. She just stuffs her cheeks.

    If you were nervous about it to start with you could use a mesh feeder? It means that they can only get small bits off or just get the taste. I was given one as a gift but didn't end up using it but it would have been good to but bits of melon/banana in I'd imagine xx
