Finger Foods

I’m ready to start giving my baby finger foods. What did you give your baby?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: Cheerios are absolutely wonderful! Every one of my kids loved them. They practically melt in your mouth, so you don’t have to worry so much about the baby choking. They were great to help my kids learn hand-to-mouth dexterity. They’re fun to play with and portable. Give a kid a bag of Cheerios, and you have an instantly happy kid.
