My 2 year old still has his food cut up into bite size pieces! It's starting to get ridiculous, if he can't fit the whole thing in his mouth at once he hands it back to DH or myself and says 'fix it' and now since we have started DD on solids he will hardly spoon feed himself, i know he's just being lazy but being the age he's at, if we don't comply he won't bother eating & he gets so cranky when he's hungry!
Anyone else been thru this and got out the other side?

Hello there, my son is nearly 3 and some foods I need to cut up still.
I found that when I feed my baby girl solids he gets "jealous" and wants me to feed him also. His getting over it now but it takes a bit of time.
They feel left sometimes.

My 3 year old is the youngest of 5 kids between me and DP...I'm afraid she would be going hungry if she expected me to cut up her food into tiny pieces! I'll cut up meat for her but that's it. I'd rather put up with a tantrum short term for the long term gain.

My DD is nearly 2 and doesn't 'bite' food either. I cut everything up. It doesn't really bother me, I'm sure she will grow out of it one day.

I remember my mr 3 going through that stage. Such a pain in the butt! He grew out of it though, I used to cut half of his food up tiny for him and so once he started and was enjoying it he was more motivated to attempt bigger bits.

my 2 yo is doing this. Good to know he's not the only one!
Also have #2 on the way so it's likely to get worse before it gets better

DSS did this. I started cutting his food into bigger and bigger bits.
When he was 3 he complained that I was "not really cutting it", and I said, "it's time you start learning to cut and bite. You're big enough now not to sit in a baby chair so you don't need baby size food".
After a week or so of repetition, and a few tantrums, he just ate whenever there was food.
