Babies First Thanksgiving

Between age four to six months, babies are ready to eat solid foods. Once your baby can sit with support and has lost her extrusion reflex: the one that causes her to push out her tongue, then she can take food from a spoon.  She’ll probably start showing interest in other people’s food, making chewing and will open her mouth for a spoon.  

     Babies will start with single food purees, progress to textures and combinations, to finger foods by eight to ten months of age.  Babies making their first Thanksgiving will have a plethora of epicurean delights; pumpkin, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, turkey, squash, apples, and more.
