My 15 month old ds enjoys eating grabby foods on his own and i gave him some beans the other day and a spoon which he ate all of using his hands not the spoon, he tends to throw it everywhere, is he too young to try this yet, my sisters dd was eating perfectly on her own by now
he is on weetabix at the mo, so will try that, not that close to sister really. He has always had a spoon, grabbed it off me a while back, lol, i guess i just get worried about how much he manages to eat, compared to how much goes on the floor
DD is three and still eats most things with her hands. She's perfectly capable of using a spoon and fork but just likes eating with her hands. Don't worry. I'm pretty sure she and your son will be just fine by the time they actually need to be. Also, the food on floor thing is a bit like the sick after milk thing. One day you just suddenly notice they're not doing it any more.
