My mother in law spoon feeds my 21 month old once a week when they are together, would this affect my training her on self feeding? Would it set her back?

At almost 2 she is plenty old enough to be feeding herself (w/ possible occasional assistance) unless there are developmental delays going on, but I wouldn't think that someone feeding her once a week would hamper anything.

Especially if what your MIL is feeding her is runny or tough to self feed. Once a week? No worries.
