QOD: When should I stop spoon-feeding my baby?

Spoon-feeding your baby is a short-lived experience, meant to last about 2-3 months.

At around 6 months of age, you will begin introducing solid food on the spoon and progress to a variety of foods, including pureed meat, cooked eggs, pureed beans, grains (cereal), and strained fruits and vegetables.

By the time your baby is 8 or 9 months old, you will want to introduce chopped foods and let your baby feed himself. While you may still be spoon-feeding during the transition to chopped food, the goal is to get away from the spoon and embrace more texture.
