I totally lied to my MCHN with DS. I told her that DS was sleeping through the night in his own bed at 2 years. In actual fact he was cosleeping and breastfeeding all night! She had no clue. I couldn't be bothered trying to explain the cosleeping because I knew she didn't approve.

Yeah I'm actually never very open with the MCHN. I loved my first one but with all my subsequent kids it felt like a factory line. I just wanted to get out of there. I haven't bothered even going with my 4th.

My 1 year old is going through a stage of THROWING EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE...so we've been doing finger foods or spoon feeding, though he used to feed himself off a pre-loaded spoon at 6 or 7 months.
My 3 year old...I don't know. I definitely used to spoon feed her sometimes as a toddler when she was stuffing around and it was easier. Not as a regular occurance though.
In this case I don't think it's the age so much. I'd be uncomfortable watching a 2.5 year old spoon fed because I think kids ought to be encouraged to do as much as possible for themselves. Not everyone agrees with that though, and that's fine.
I think here the concern is the fact that he doesn't actually WANT to be spoon fed and is having it forced upon him. That said, it's not that big a deal in the scheme of things.

I was at play centre recently and I saw a woman spoon feeding a child (who looked around 3) yoghurt.
Prior to being fed his yoghurt he was running around playing with my 4 yr old. I thought it was really weird and felt pretty sorry for him.
I've also been sat with friends and their (more than capable imo) toddlers have tried to feed themselves but friends have said no, you're too young.

We've been working with an OT since DD was around 20 months with spoon feeding and using a fork. As you know she has a syndrome. Based on that theory I would think a child could master spoon feeding by 3 or 4??
My DD uses a spoon and a fork w quite well at 3 and half. But still needs support.
