My son is almost 18 months old and he still seems like he's not interested in using an utensils. He's stopped flipping plates and bowls over, but when I hand him a spoon or spork, he'll hold it in one hand while he eats with the fingers of his other hand. If I stand behind him and help him put the food on his spoon and put it up to his mouth, he'll eat from it. Then it's right back to fingers. Should I be worried that he doesn't use it yet? Cause I know of some that were using utensils by his age quite easily.
