  • dont worry about it! if he prefers to eat with his hands, as long as he is eating is what matters! encourage the use of the spoon by offering it with his meal, or have him watch you eat with silverware. he'll eventually get the hang of using a spoon!

  • Try a fork. My DD likes eating baby food off of a fork and a spoon. Forks feel different in the mouth than spoons do so she likes to switch it up every now and then.

  • It sounds like he's ready to graduate to solid foods. I would let him eat finger foods for a few weeks and then if you really want to get some baby food in him you could try again. Otherwise give yourself a pat on the back, you've made it out of the messy/ expensive baby food stage.

  • He's 7 in a half months and he's developing and learing everything so fast, its like he went thru the spoon phase now he wants to leave that and upgrade.lol but thank u ladies.
