Not sure if this is the right area, but I need some help.
DD turned 1 last Monday and since then will only take 2-3 feeds from the spoon I feed her with. I will then put more food on the spoon and hand it to her, she'll take it and put it in her mouth . However, she'll only do this 1-2 times then start playing with it and she stops eating. It's not because she's full, because 10-15mins later, she's hungry again and throws a massive tanty..it's becoming quite troublesome for us, we're first time parents and we don't know what to do. We're wanting her to sleep through and the MCHN says to fill her belly will help. Having said that, she's been night waking since 6 months /cry.
So, I'm just wondering, is this a phase? Will she learn that food is yummy and not a toy? And should I just give her the bowl and spoon to see if she can figure it out...but I do know she'll just throw the bowl and spoon like she does now.
