I've not dealt with this before as DD1 was content to wait till she was 6 months old before demanding my food. DD2 is 4 months and in the past few days/week has shown a huge interest in what we are doing when we are eating or drinking. She lunges for my tea and knows to put her mouth on the glass/mug and does the same with my plate. I gave her a sippy last night with a tiny bit of water, but then switched it for BM to see what she would do with it. She managed to get some BM out, but thought it was a bit strange since I was right there cooking dinner. I did let her taste my applesauce last night and this afternoon. She really seems to like it and grabbed for the spoon and put it in her mouth herself. She had just nursed, so I know it's not out of hunger. She has none of the developmental milestones that say she's ready, but she thinks she is. Any advice?
