    Default spoon feeding

    At what age did your children start using a spoon themselves? ds is 12 months and eats everything and anything. he picks everything up with his hands and important wondering how to start him feeding himself. if i give Jim the spin he just chew it or flings food across the too. i feed him yogurt etc i have started putting the soon in his hand but i have to held it aswell to guide it to his mouth.

    I've been giving my DD 8 months a spoon from the get go, she knows when I had her a spoon of food to put it in her mouth, I would suggest just loading a spoonup and giving it to him and having one yourself as well, he will get the idea,he may try to feed you too

    Check out his bowl, i have used them for both my kids... they were both feedingthemslves buy about 12 months. These bowls are fantastic, at least you know everything wont end up on the floor. Give your bub a spoon and one of these bowls and let him go nuts!! Like Thermo said, eat with him and use a spoon yourself.

    relax about the mess, it all cleans up!

    I have put spoons on his tray since he began solids, I'd say it's really only now at 17 months he can use a spoon or fork really well ( still spills some porridge all over himself of a morning!)

    My ds is 18 months and started feeding himself around 17 months with a spoon. He still needs help with soup etc but can mostly eat dinner etc himself. So much easier.
