We were just trying out introducing baby finger food to Spud a couple of weeks ago to see how she takes to them. With google search and a weaning book as our bible, we picked out 3 types of food and lay it all for her to pick and choose.
She picked out the watermelon first and immediately started gnawing on it with her toothless gum. I am not sure if she likes it, and I guess at that point in time she can’t decide either! The steamed broccoli and baby carrots were left completely untouched, and when I put the carrot in her hands, she immediately let go of it after putting it in her mouth while giving us a funny look on her face.
Her attention span to finger food lasted a grand total of 2 minutes before she’s had enough of it all and wanted to get out of her high-chair. (read: cranky and check out those eye-bags again!)
I guess we can always try again next time. My only gripe about giving her finger food is that because it is only the introductory stage and I prepared it fresh, we ended up wasting food quite a bit to avoid keeping it for too long (paranoid that the food being spoilt).
