When did your little one learn to eat with a spoon?
My little dude is 16 months and does not seem to get the point
We give him a spoon with his food but he just uses it to stir and then uses his hands to eat .
Will he just eventually get it or should I 'teach' him?

dd was closer to 2 when she got the hang of it. i didnt teach her, she just wanted to do it by herself one day.
i offered alot of finger foods so she could feed herself and it would free up my time a little more.

He'll catch onto it dd did the same thing, now at 20 month eating off a spoon like a pro . no teaching, just let her go, watching me was enough of a teacher..... i. I like eating.

My 18 month old DS doesn't care much for cutlery either. I've seen him use a fork and spoon a few times, but most of the time he pulls the food off with his other hand. I'm trying to eat with him more often so that he can learn from watching.

11 - 12 months I gave DD the spoon and she could eat without spilling food by 14 months. She's 25 months and can eat runny soup without spilling a drop.

DS learned at child care when he was about 16 months from watching the other kids. They can teach DD too when she starts next year.

DS2 just turned 16 months and started a couple of days ago. He's surprisingly good. DS1 was about 14 months.
