Re: 4 month old showing ready signs?
Readiness for me means picking the food up themselves and being able to put it in their own mouths. No parental help at all. They also need to be bale to sit up by themselves This happens somewhere around 5-7 months, but sometimes later. Until that happens they are just not ready. I BLW by the way.
Try sitting your LO on you lap when you eat dinner. If they grab food off your plate and try to eat it, they are ready.
