Why do Babies need to be offered Finger Food?
Hi Helen

Thank you so much for your replies to my questions about food, motor function and sleep, and also thank you for the link ...

There is, however, something that I do not understand ...

You suggest that I offer him some fresh fruit, bread crusts or cucumber sticks as finger food - why is that? He has not yet got his first tooth, so I guess it is not because he is to eat it?

Best regards
Karen
