Emmett does not self feed yet. We have been working at it for months now, but he just doesn't seem to get it. Should I be worried?? He will take pieces of food if we put it in his mouth and show him how to chew by copying us, but put it on his tray to pick up and do himself, nope. I put it in his hand and he either smashes it up or drops it and throws it. Will eat a jar of stage 3 baby food good from the spoon, but I dunno. I see so many other babies his age doing fine with this, but the Ped said not to worry he will get it, just wondering if should be concerned or not. Thanks.
Try not to compare. its hard to do, but just focus on Emmett. If the pedi isn't concerned, then try not to be. That has always been my philosophy and its worked well so far. Kids all develop defferently. He'll get there!

I wouldn't be worried, he's probably working on something else. M can self feed, but I only let her for fun and practice(and so I can eat-lol) and only really soft things. I feed her from 90 percent of what she eats with a spoon, that way I know she's getting more of it..
Cam only self feeds herself stuff like gold fish and banana slices. She would never know what to do with a spoon. Akadia took a lot longer to self feed. They are all so different. It's hard to not compare to everyone around you especially when we see what everyone is doing in groups like these.
