Blowing raspberries when eating Lock Rss

Hi there,

Just wanting to pick your brains on any ideas/suggestions on what to do when your little one decides it is good fun to blow raspberries every time a spoonful of food is put into the mouth?...

DD is 6.5mths old and it is becoming a battle to get any food to stay in her mouth. She has been on solids for about 6 weeks. Is this just 'a stage'? Is there any way I can 'distract' her so she doesnt do it? Doesnt seem to be related to what she's eating -does it at most meals and I start to wonder if she's swallowing anything.

My DD to does this when im trying to feed her
as soon as i see shes about to to it i pull the spoon away till shes finished then quickly shove the spoon in,she doesnt usually do it once the foods in, but ocassionaly she will and sends pumkin flying

Hi Emmymummy,

My boy has started this too, like mimmy he only seems to do it when there is no food in his mouth! The only suggestion I have got is dont laugh at them as it only makes it 10 times worse!! Hopefully it is just a passing phase that all bubs go through?

My girl still does this (she is 8.5 months now) and sometimes we wear her meals, other times we dont. I guess the only thing you can do is to also put on a bib and sit well clear!! I think that it is a stage and for them everything is a game. I blow them back, making sure that she too gets some stray saliva (gross I know) and sometimes that makes her stop! Not sure why!

Hope this helps..


My son is 7.5 months old and is a member of the raspberry blowing club. When he begins to blow raspberrys while I am feeding him I stop mid spoonfull and say No then open my own mouth wide and say ah ah ah. And he seems to understand and opens his mouth wide takes the food and finishes his mouthful. Or sometimes I leave the spoon in his mouth a little longer so that he has to swallow. sometimes it works, its probably just a coincidence tho.........They are such cheeky little bubs smile .

My daughter does raspberries when she is eating and drinking and it doesnt matter what I do to stop her from doing raspberries it just make her to do it even more and now I just dont worry about it.

Maybe ask your doctor to weight her to see if she is putting any weight on?
