Getting your little one to self-feed can take some time and sometimes it just takes a little trial and error…
A trick used by @tom.redwood (our founder and dad to little Alex!) was to lay a bunch of spoons in front of Alex when he was sitting in his highchair. Alex would then start putting the spoons into his mouth (let’s face it, at this age, everything goes into the mouth, even if you don’t want it to!!🙈). Tom would then take the odd spoon and dip it into the food and lay it back down in front of Alex. Of course Alex would pop this into his mouth, like he was before the spoon was loaded, and to his delight, it would taste yummy!! 🙌
Tom would repeat this, dipping the spoons into the food and soon Alex would become familiar with spoon = food = yummy! Once this was realised, you couldn’t stop him! 🙈
it’s a great way to encourage your little one to feed themselves, just like they do with finger food! 🥕🥦🥒
Double the spoonful’s, the higher chance of success! 🤣
Do you have any hacks?
