Fork Spoon

Posted in Military Surplus by admin on August 15, 2010

How can i get my daughter to eat from a spoon or fork herself?

My daughter is over 18 months old and she eats okay but cannot really feed herself with a spoon or fork i have to do it for her. She does try sometimes but just turns the spoon upside down, i know it takes time to develop this skill but is there any mothers or fathers out there with the same problem? and does anyone know anything i can do to help and encourage her, thanks.

My son is 14 months and eats with the spoon. He is not a pro at it yet, he sometimes can't scoop up food and sometimes it ends up on his shirt. But for the most part, he is pretty good. I started him at 12 months. I let him hold the spoon because he was naturally curious about it. I just let him hold it while I use it to feed him. Then after a while I just let him use it. The first time was not good since the spoon is usually titled and ends up upside down before it reaches his mouth. But this is normal. I just sit there next to him and keep correcting how he holds the spoon. I still have to do this sometimes but it's a lot better now. Then when the spoon ends up not quite right in the mouth, then you just keep guiding it.
