I love your new avatar, Christina!
Anyway, I am glad you started this thread. I am thinking I might start giving D some things just to gnaw on, but don't anticipate he'll ingest anything. I think his tongue thrust is in full effect- it was the last time I checked. He can sit up though. He was due the 17th and born the 24th. He is only just 4 months so I would only give him foods to hold as a way to occupy him. He likes sticking things in his mouth- might as well give him something that tastes good?
Actually, now that I am thinking about it, I won't start for a couple more weeks at least. I am trying to see how cutting gluten out of my diet affects him, so I don't want to introduce anything new, just in case.
That's great D can sit up! I'm eagerly anticipating Rhyko getting that down!
I think that's smart to wait a bit until you've worked out what you want to with your diet. Let his tummy adjust, first.
