    Default 7 month old spitting food?

    As the title says...
    My 7 month old is spitting his good out and then laughing afterwards.

    It's not like he's full - might be 2 spoonfuls in.

    He's only just started and I don't know how to get him to stop. He's usually great with eating.

    It's not that important that he eats at that age. .. He is just experimenting with it's texture/taste etc.
    I wouldn't worry at this age to be honest.

    He usually loves his food. He eats a lot through the day so it seems strange he's doing it.
    I won't worry bout it. Just a bit frustrating!

    My DD started doing this at 8 months. She LOVES her food but she had just worked out how to spit it and found it hilarious. I just ignored her when she did it and she stopped doing it so much. She still occasionally does it but mainly when she's full now (she's 1)

    I've been trying to ignore him when he does it.
    Which he does take notice of. Then we start again n he does it again. Think I'll just keep ignoring him and hopefully he will stop

    He's found a fun new game to play The novelty will wear off eventually, but for now, it really doesn't matter that much. If he's hungry he'll eat, but he should still be getting most of his nutrition from his milk at this stage so don't worry if most of his food ends up on the floor.

    Most of his food gets spat on me lol
    But yeah he will eat when he's hungry. He still has all his bottles so I know he's not starving. Just being a menace lol
