Do you still feed your LO anything?


Lately, Bailey has been handing me her fork at dinner time. I give her a bite then put it down and she does this over and over and before I know it I've fed her her entire dinner. It's been going on for a week now.. I am so not used to this. Both boys (and Bailey until this point) had refused to let me feed them once they hit 10-12 mos.......

Tell me I'm not alone!

I still feed Emily! For several reasons... 1, she eats more when I do. 2. She eats faster. 3. It's less messy.
So yes, I still feed Abby.
I don't mean everything, obviously. Abby does pretty well though, she loves to eat so she eats most things on her own. Rice, soups, spaghetti.. I feed her.
Emily doesn't eat well, she never wants to eat so it saves me trouble if I just feed her.

I feed him yogurt and soup things, but mostly he feeds himself. To get the last little bits he likes me to feed him with the fork.

Nope. I don't mind how long it takes or how much mess she makes. She prefers to do it herself anyway. We often have to load the spoon for her but she is really good at doing it herself most of the time. She refuses to eat unless she has both a spoon and a fork.

I have started feeding her again because she isn't getting food in. I let her start and then help her finish.

^^This. He does pretty well, but I notice his food intake went down greatly when he was doing it all himself. And not that he is tiny enough to have to worry, but I usually help him at the end to finish up.

The title of this post made me laugh. My first reaction was Noooo, I let him starve Til I opened it up

Bella feeds herself most things. Even if she is just holding the fork but putting everything in her mouth with her other hand. LOL Except, of course, for soupy stuff or stuff with a lot of sauce/gravy, those I feed her. And she still eats some pureed fruits and veggies (she loves them and the more the better I think!), so those I definitely feed her myself. But like some of you ladies, sometimes I stab the food and she feeds it to herself.

Oh, and she thinks eating spaghetti is hysterical! The other night we were doing the "Lady and the Tramp" thing - each of us on either side of a spaghetti string. It was cute cause she kept leaning in to kiss me! LOL

Jillian isn't really interested in using a fork or spoon on her own yet. She does sometimes but most of the time she just eats with her hands or I feed her. I always feed her oatmeal, yogurt, spaghetti, soup...anything that's messy or would be hard for her to do on her own.
