Stage 3 - Your baby from 8 months old

As an 8 month old baby, your little one is trying to feed themself with hands, spoons and fingerfoods. This is a stage where independent eating starts to emerge and this encourages his hand eye coordination. Try not to stress about the mess, the more involved your baby can be, the faster they will learn to handle food and feed themselves.
