JJ started having Mum-Mums earlier this week and has really taken to them. I am not sure if it is the taste (they basically taste like nothing) or the fact that I give him pieces that are big enough for him to “feed” himself.
Sometimes he gets more hand than food, but I am really proud that he can even get close! and glad that he is enjoying the harder texture more.
A couple times, when I tried to help him get the Mum-Mum in his mouth, he actually pushed my hand away! I was so startled the first time, I figured it was just a fluke. Then I tried to help him again, and again he pushed my hand away. The second time I was startled because he usually never gives me any resistance regardless of what we are doing, really, so it is a new thing for me to have to get used to. But it is good – he is becoming an independent little person! and if he doesn’t want my help, he’ll just push my hand away!
