Dd1 was feeding herself with a spoon by around 9 or 10 months. From about 7 months I could give her toast etc and she would feed herself.
Dd2 only started using a spoon on her own around 18-20 months. She started feeding herself toast etc about 7 months as well though.

Ds1 is 2.5 and I still help him. He does like to feed himself but he would only eat 3 spoonfuls and then stop eating if I didn't help.
Ds2 is 9 months old and he eats everything in sight, so I think he will feed himself alot earlier.

DS started feeding himself around 10 months old and now at almost 21 months i never feed him. He does an awesome job with a spoon or fork.

DD is 10mths and I give her a spoon, but she mostly still prefers to use her hands to smush food into her mouth. Makes for messy feeding! She'll generally hold the spoon in her left hand and use her right hand to pick up food! Will use it sometimes though.

We did BLW and I used to give him loaded spoons but probably about 12 months he could spoon food from his bowl to mouth ( with a heap of mess!) but really started doing it properly without much spillage at about 18 months

We did BLW so have never spoon fed our DD. We started to consistently remember to give her cutlery at around 12 months and from around 14 months she would eat chunky things with a fork and from around 16 months she could eat porridge, soup, etc with a spoon without really spilling anything

DS was 12-18 months when he became more skilled with spoon feeding himself.
DD is 9 months and has finger food, but I still spoon feed her too.
