PostSubject: Biting spoon during feeding   Sat May 19, 2007 4:09 pm

Okay. Gracie's two bottom teeth are coming in. She seems to be teething still...not sure if the top ones are wanting to cut through now too?

Anyways...I have been slowly introducing solids and finally this past week she started to take the rice cereal real well. She seemed very eager for the next bite and ate the whole bowl. (Before this point she has been unreceptive of solids, even the rice cereal that I have been attempting to give her since she turned 6 months) Well, we had a few more feedings but then yesterday she started to where she wanted to grab the spoon and then would bite down on it like she was teething. This has happened like three more times. Each time I try to feed her all she wants to do is bite the spoon! She seems to be swallowing the little bit I get in her mouth, but she isn't opening wide like she wants the food. I think she just wants to bite the spoon :scratch:

Any suggestions on how I should get her to stop doing this? I'm not sure if she just isn't hungry or teething or what is going on? I am still nursing in between the solid feedings, so I know she isn't going to go hungry...it's just a little frustrating.complain

careful of them teeth when nurseing :ouch!:

Biting the spoon is natural,Kai does it too.But not as bad as Gracie by sounds of it,he is too eager too get the food in his mouth.He is a right little piggy. He has a breakfast now too.

Have you tried her on baby biscuits for 8 months and let her chew on that,it will also get her used too chewing up foods ready for proper solids with lumps and bits in.I started Kai on them at 7 months 3 weeks.

haha! it hasn't been too bad yet...i'm just worried when she gets the top teeth and then chomps down! Ouch is right!

i haven't tried the biscuits yet. i looked at them at the store and it said they should have teeth already. i will try them now that they have cut through. she likes the little gerber fruit puffs that she can pick up herself and they dissolve quickly. she still has a little bit of a hard time with her pincher grasp though. i will try the biscuits and let you know how she likes them!

Hehe, yes ouchies to them teeth, if she does start to bite pull her away from the breast and say NO, keep doing that and she'll soon learn that nibbling mummies boob = no milk lol!

::lmao::

Sounds like good advice. I gave Gracie a teething biscuit yesterday afternoon and she loved it!! She gnawed on it for quite a while. She was up quite a bit last night, so I know she is definitely teething again.
