Does your DD or DS use a fork or spoon? If so can they use it well or no?
Reason I ask is I babysit during the day and I sit for a set of twins....have been for nearly 4 months....there parents just informed me last night they still feed them like babies.....Now I am asking myself did I let DD have a fork or spoon to early....or am I rushing things.....anyone else still feed there DD or DS themselves?
I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and a 1 year old and they all have used a spoon by themselves since they were around 1. I don't give them forks because they tend to poke their mouths with them. I don't think it's rushing. My kids wanted to feed themselves. First we started by letting them use their fingers and then they started showing an interest in eating like we do so it was just kinda natural.
