He will self feed a little. If I put the food on the spoon, he'll put it in his mouth. But then he just wants to chew on that spoon so I can't get anymore into him. I have to let him have 2 spoons (at least) so he has one to chew on, one to play with or throw off the tray, and I have one to try and get something into him.

Yesterday I gave him a cereal cookie and he was able to self feed with it. He didn't eat much of it, probably because the texture is new and he had to figure out how to chew up the bits that broke off but he seemed to enjoy it at least.

He will eat what I get into him, he won't spit it out. It's just a struggle because he gets mad if I try to intercept his playing or studying the food on his hands or the spoon, the bowl, whatever he's looking at. I'll try making him some very soft foods that he can pick up and hopefully he'll put some of it in his mouth! I'll also mention to the doctor what's happening and he can judge whether we need to supplement.
