My DS is nearly 8 months and is enjoying his food! Yesterday I made some butternut squash soup and as he normally has what we have, he had some warm soup from his doidy cup with a few breadsticks and rice cakes dipped in as well.

He seemed to drink the soup much better than he ever drinks water from a cup, I guess because it was thicker and easier to control. I've spent quite a while lurking on this forum, reading the BLW cookbook and the river cottage cookbook and I've never come across anyone recommending soup in a cup for my question is - am I missing something? Is this a crazy thing to do?

Makes sense to me. I give dd (7 month) soup with a roll n to soak all the soup up. But that's only cos I don't like drinking soup so it never occurred to me to even give it her from a cup! So whatever works for you grin

My DD (11 months) has soup in a bowl that sticks to her high chair so she can easily load her own spoon and dip her toast soldiers.

DD would just upend a Doidy of soup and cackle

Sounds great to me.
I gave up on soup with a spoon because it was too messy.

Soup is great for toddlers, you can get a lot of veg in them and expand their tastes, and as long as it is nice and thick they can feel really proud of feeding themselves. It freezes, you can use up slightly tired and emotional veg, and you can have the same thing for lunch too... everyone's a winner!
