This might help you make the invitation list for the 1st Birthday Party where you will probably see some real baby eating action.

Your thoughts are appreciated. They are lucky to have a friend like you.
Have to ditto what Stir says. I was still exclusively nursing my children at this age, so no solid food was part of their equation. Just offer toys and safe distractions. Have fun.

Glad you contacted the mother. I wouldn't feed a baby anything without checking with the parents first. You might want to suggest that mom bring a snack or two that she knows her baby would like. Saves a lot of guesswork.

I know when our daughter was that age we always traveled with with every single thing we would possibly need. People were always kind and wanted to have things available for her, but we found it much easier to just have what we needed on us at all times.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

In my experience, children that age don't eat from plates with utensils - they eat with their hands from the table top or high chair top in front of them. At that age, they could hurt themselves with a utensil, even a spoon, and the plate will likely end up on the floor

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
