    How does your baby let you know when they have had enough of their solids?

    My LO will starting removing all the food from her high chair tray if she is feeding herself, either throwing it onto the floor or giving it to me/OH/anyone else she sees. If she s being spoon fed she will start sticking her tongue out with every mouthful to spit out the food.

    Are these universal baby ways, or does your LO have their own way of saying they have had enough?

    Ruby pushes the plate away or recently, she has started saying 'finished'. :)

    At 10 months she would just stop eating and start squishing the food in her hands, or chew the food then spit it out, or hand it to me, or throw it on the floor! Whatever she did I wasn't left in any doubt!

    Gabriel starts throwing the food on the floor to the cats. He'll also start paying attention to everything else (IE look out the window, look around the room)

    I have to admit he'll suddenly get 'hungry' again if he sees me start to eat anything though.

    Omar says "finis" while moving his hands & starts to move around wanting to get out of his chair. Earlier, he used to fake a gag even if there is no food in his mouth to show us that he's done.

    If he's feeding himself he will just push all of the food off his tray and get really fidgety and try to get out of his high chair so I know he's finished. If I'm spoon feeding him, he will refuse to open his mouth any more and sometimes try to push the spoon out of my hand which means he's had enough.
