When we first started BLW with Capri was 6 months we would give her large chunks for food so she could hold them with her fist and chew on them.
For us this worked for a long time since she would just munch on things with her gums (she didn’t get teeth until around 10 months). Now that she is older she wants to actually chew and swallow her food and I have found certain foods she needs cut up into smaller pieces so she can eat them better. If they are in chunks she gets frustrated and throws them on the floor. So now her plate looks more like this:
She does so much better with it and enjoys her meals a lot more.
