We do hope infants will be drawn to try table food over time but it is neither needed or balanced enough to assure proper growth & development that young. Breast milk or formula is balanced for infant growth. We prefer to avoid advancing to solid feeds until they sit & their tongue thrust subsides at ~6 mo. People will do what they will do, but don't expect anyone to praise you for doing so.
