My Baby – Week 32

Can you believe your baby is almost eight months old? Your baby may be able to play peek-a-boo, clap his hands, creep or crawl, and may be able to pick up small objects using just a thumb and a forefinger. Some infants may even begin trying to pull to a standing position, while holding on to someone or something.

As your baby’s hand dexterity increases, you may want to start feeding her some finger foods. Remember, all finger foods you decide to give your little one should be cut carefully into small pieces. It’s best to keep all pieces pea size for safety reasons. Also, choose foods that she can gum, or that will dissolve in her mouth without chewing.

You may want to try:

  • Small pieces of a whole-wheat bagel or bread
  • Small pieces of crackers
  • Small pieces of rice cakes
  • Small pieces of ripe, pitted and peeled bananas, mangos, or cantaloupe
  • Small pieces of cooked vegetables, like sweet potatoes.

    My grand daughter is the joy our my life. Her smile just lightens my heart. She loves food. I bought her the Gerber yogurt pellets that melts her mouth as she gums it. She loves them and they have different flavors. I feed her many things off my plate but she also eat her baby food. She loves applesauce and sweet potatoes. She has been pulling up and taking steps while holding on to something. I bought her a walker for Christmas. I love these updates because haven’t had a baby care for like this since my children so this is very helpful. She will be 8 months on jan 14.
