Your little baby will start eating small pieces.
Gradually, instead of mashed potatoes, crush them with a fork, first finely, and then in larger pieces, following the way your baby chews or swallows.
Try also a small piece of banana, the meat in pieces will be for later.
It is as the teeth come out and your baby starts to chew, that you will go from the mixed consistency to the normal consistency.
To help your child, prepare small pieces in a plate, which he will grasp with his fingers. The baby loves to eat food by mouth.
At first, he will do a lot of chattering, he will take a piece, crush it, put it in his mouth, get it out it’s his way of getting used to new tastes and consistencies.

Little by little, your baby will eat better and better.
