If you find that baby is starting to grab for the spoon full of food while you’re steering it towards his little mouth and you’re ending up with more food on him (and everywhere else) than in his tummy, try giving him a spoon to hold! Every now and again guide ‘his’ spoon to the bowl and dip it in slightly then guide it to his mouth. It’s the start of him looking for independence, he’s a big boy now and wants to feed himself! So this way he can feel like he’s in charge but mummy still has the ‘main’ spoon and can make sure enough food is going in his tummy (not just on the floor for the cat to eat) and messy feeding is kept at a minimum!
