Really? The thing I loved about BLW was handing her a plate of food and a spork, then letting her get on with it. We had a nice family meal-time. I mean... How do you eat and spoon-feed at the same time?

We've let her taste some things as we are eating them-bananas were the best though she loved gumming a cucumber (not sure if she got much taste from that one, I think she liked how her gums squeaked on it). She doesn't quite have the hand eye coordination thing down so we haven't tried giving her an actual meal (figured we'd wait till 6 months). Any suggestions or tips/tricks?
