New parents, expect your babies to get messy when they learn to feed themselves. Messy is a necessary part of growth and development. Learn to take messy all in stride.
No Non-cents Nanna’s youngest grandchild is cute as a bug eating berries, don’t you know! (Wearing the berries,too!)
Six years later this No Non-cents Nanna and the baby in the image are still getting messy and having fun.
Babies explore their world by putting everything in their mouths. It is a healthy and natural part of growth and development that all babies/ children to enjoy…so lighten up, folks.
Just hose ’em off at the sink! All kids can be washed up with water and a few wash clothes.
Sure it was messy!
But, let me tell you this babe, now 6 years old, makes healthy eating choices. If you follow No Non-cents Nanna blogs or explore No Non-cents Nanna’s Heart Felt Play Store this baby is the model known as Sophie-Do-It.
Because of the fact that infants and small children under the age of 3 explore by putting things in their mouth never give a tot anything small than what can fit into the diameter of a toilet paper tube. The US product safety commission requires labeling like this:
Safety guidelines include:

The symbol is a triangle with an ! in the middle
