The point of this post is not to tell you how to feed your baby. That's up to you and the advice of your pediatrician. But I wanted to share what I find to be the pros and cons of this method of introducing solids.
Con: It's a really big mess. A really. big. mess.
- I can feed myself while the baby feeds himself.
- I don't have to prepare extra food for the baby.
- Baby loves it.
- It's a lot of fun.
- It makes for great photo ops.
