We decided it was time to let Little E loose with a spoon. This is a massive step for all of us as Ethan still needs support with feeding so not only has Little E had to learn a new skill we have had to learn to let her get on with it and ignore the mess.
And mess there has been!
She has had lots of fun mixing, splashing and tipping food all over the place.
Little E started off by using the spoon like a lollipop but over the past few days we have noticed that she has started to hold the spoon the correct way round. This is making meal times just a little bit less messy.
Since the spoon has been introduced Little E will now only eat her food if she is holding the spoon and has the food in-front of her. There is no getting away from the mess, Little E really wants to be independent. She really wasn’t my little baby for long!
