My son is 13 month sold and is intolerant to alot of foods(not allergic) so I am limited in what I can feed him. I still mix iron rich cereal with pureed jars and spoon feed him most meals. He also eats most snacks and half his meals with finger food he can do, but the mess of him feeding himself with a spoon is too much to think about as I am pregnant again now. Although, when the new baby arrives when he is 18 months, I don't want to have to feed him anymore. Should I just deal with the mess of him doing it all himself or could it be bad for him?? I assume he can gain those same motor skills when playing but maybe not??
