-Sits unassisted for long periods
-Reaches accurately and puts things in her mouth
-Eats breastmilk slush eagerly off a spoon, and will even grab spoon and put it in her own mouth
-Sits on my lap during meals, grabs my food and tries to put it in her mouth, but i stop her
Basically, the kid wants food. I know she won't actually swallow anything for a while, but she just wants to explore and play with it. Am I doing the wrong thing to trust my instincts and let her taste the food she grabs?
