So right now Lexi uses her hands to eat everything - except we do spoon feed her things like yogurt or soup. When do you start letting your little one use a spoon? I'm terrified bc she throws everything off her high chair tray already and it's such a mess! Lol.

Yea same boat here. A couple times I've let him do his own yogurt and it is a crazy mess but he loves it. He's always trying to grab our fork and spoon and freaks out if we don't let him have it!

Lilah is great at using her hands - she gets better all the time. I do give her a spoon, and she attempts to scoop food up and put it in her mouth with the spoon - but usually she's scooping with the spoon upside down, lol, so it never really works....but I cheer for her anyway!

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!

I think whenever you feel comfortable giving the spoon. I waited a little extra long with Ethan (the oldest) because of the mess factor, too. But at some point you just go, oh heck I guess they're really old enough, now. Mostly I just gave him things he could feed himself, and he didn't mind eating from a spoon from me for longer.
Now with Kody, he does NOT like to eat from a spoon, so he does better with finger foods. However, he does like to mooch bites off of a grown-up spoon if he is hanging around while I'm eating.

Well I just went for it! Plopped some yogurt right on her tray and let her have a spoon and she loved it! Now she wants the spoon everytime! She did pretty well with it. I am not putting any bowls on her tray, though, bc she would knock them down!

Kary, Owen insists on ONLY feeding himself, so I got this awesome bowl with a suction on the bottom and it's impossible for him to toss - life changer!
