Mouthing Solid Food and Toys

“Eatin’ the Leg Off the Table”

Place something sweet or good tasting on your child’s toys.

  • Give your child a food they can hold in their hand. Make sure it is something they cannot choke on.
  • If your child rejects the food or toy, give them something new.
  • Place a toy or food in your child’s hands.
  • Guide your child’s hand toward the mouth with a toy or object in it.
  • Eventually remove the physical prompts and see if your child begins to mouth the toys and solid foods.
