DS1 hated feeding himself - he would happily eat if spoon fed though but only things that were not too textured He eventually got round to feeding himself at some point in the past 3 and a half years and now has a balanced diet of proper solid foods.
DS2 - 8 months - loves food and insists on feeding himself. Will only eat proper food - throws purees off the table.
Different babies and totally different personalities. I'd say go with the flow with your little one and spoonfeed them - at some point they will start grabbing the spoon and wanting to feed themsel any way.
