Last night Sebastian tried corn on the cob for the first time. (These photos were taken during a brief power outage so they are a little washed out.) He mostly nibbled the kernels on the edges but clearly really liked it. This particular corn was grown in Grandma’s garden, making it extra special.
Most foods work fine for babies without teeth but corn on the cob is probably an exception. Sebastian has three top teeth and three bottoms, just enough to scrape off bits of corn.
At one point I think the cob hurt his gums but he quickly got over it and went back to chomping.
It seemed like Sebastian found corn on the cob to be both tasty and novel/entertaining. He carried it around with him for awhile, happily munching on it in between playing with his toys. Later I found the mostly-finished cob inside of his shape sorter toy.
If you do corn on the cob with your wee one, do be sure to check for stuck kernels after eating and possibly brush teeth later. Brushing with a soft brush and warm water is a good practice for any baby on solids. Sebastian actually really likes having his little teeth brushed. Like infant pottying, it is a good habit to get them used to.
