With a whole lot of dishes ranging from sweet to mildly spicy to chewy to creamy (and more!), we’re sure your baby is having a ball of a time trying out the various things his mommy is specially cooking up for him. But even if he doesn’t, please ensure that you aren’t force-feeding him at any point, as this could lead to him developing an unhealthy relationship with food. Let him explore at his own pace. After all, his food journey has really just begun!
