My daughter will be one year old on the 4th and people keep telling me to let her try eating on her own or she will never learn. I let her eat things like noodles or cut up hot dog, but I just don't want to clean up a mess when I already slack on other chores around the house. When do children usually eat by themselves? Am I doing something wrong by not letting her try it more often?
