Your Baby Is 50 Weeks Old!
Baby may soon start to show interest in feeding himself with a spoon. Let him! Try to accept that mealtime will be messy for a while, and keep reminding yourself that this is a step toward independence for baby. Soon, you’ll be able to enjoy your own meal while baby eats all by himself.
[tip] If you’re ready to wean baby from formula or breast milk, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends whole milk until age two — the fat and cholesterol are good for baby’s development.
