Self-feeding

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

My 15 month old is learnig to use silverware to eat with and does a pretty decent job. After a while he gets tired of it an returns to using his fingers. Recenlty, he has started throwing a fit and refuses to eat if we try to feed him anything on a spoon, even if he's traded it in for his hands. It's becoming pretty messy as he usually trades in his spoon while eating yogart, applesauce or some other fun and messy food. Ideas? Suggestions?

Have you tried pulling the food away when he doesnt use a spoon. Sometimes that works, or maybe a fun looking spoon. I wouldnt stress over it things always get better and he will learn soon.
