That's what my daughter started doing and as soon as we started letting her feed herself, she was happy. I didn't give her much meat around that age. The meat I did give was usually cooked in the crock pot so it was extremely tender.

i think its either bc hes not hungry at that time, or he wants to play w the spoon/the baby food on the spoon.

yea i think its time to start letting him feed himself. he does great w those puffs. so he shouldnt have a problem w steamed veggies or soft fruit.

I know some parents do not like the Gerber graduate meals, but around that age my daughter loved them. I always kept some on hand for nights where we were eating things she couldn't chew well (she teethed late) or something that was too spicy for her. I have some awesome pics of her with the Gerber spaghetti bowls haha.

let him feed him self. Don't worry about meats he can't chew. I grinded up the food we ate for my daughter at that age so she could feed her self.
