Fork or Spoon to Feed Himself
Over a year ago I had gotten Zeke to start feeding himself.
He only did it for a week probably…then we must
have got lazy and started to feed him again.
Well I have decided the lil’ guy needs to feed himself.
I know he can do it he is a bright kid.
So tonight I made baked chicken and rice.
I cut up the chicken and made a rice bowl for everyone.
I grabbed his hand and helped him get his
food on the spoon and led it to his mouth.
Then I decided to make him do more by himself.
Each time he wanted me to do it and would push me
when I asked if he wanted a bite.
I pushed his hand toward the spoon and said you do it.
He grabbed the spoon and fed himself but each
time would put the spoon back in the bowl and let go.
Well we finished his food and he fed himself 90% of it.
That’s a great start! Yay!
We each cheered for each bite he took and he liked that. 🙂
It’s been a great day!
When did your child learn to feed themself?
