    Hi bigcityhillbilly,

    I am on here today for the first time and wondered how your baby is doing? Did you figure out feeding? He would be 9 months now, about the same age as my child. It's actually normal for babies to wait until they're 6 months to start being spoon fed and they normally have trouble keeping the food in their mouth to start out. I hope it has gotten better though. Is everything working out alright?
