Since Pres was 5.5 months when we started, I figured we have a little bit of a learning curve before he figured out the stuff on his tray was food and he was supposed to put it in his mouth. Umm no - he totally dove in and started stuffing everything we offered in his mouth. He's not actually swallowing too much right now, but that's totally fine. He's exploring textures and tastes so he learns about food and decides what he likes.
We are also doing a little bit of purees in the form of a "loaded spoon" (which is one of the concepts of BLW). We put a little bit of puree on a spoon and hand it to him and he puts it in his mouth - no more of us playing "airplane" or trying to shove a mush into his mouth for him. He is VERY into the spoon and feeding himself. It's pretty hilarious to see him feeding himself and of course, it's super messy! But I'm really loving this stage!
