According to my pediatrician, my little buddy should be able to use a spoon by the time he's two.
A lot of moms have recommended thick things like applesauce or mashed potatoes, but he isn't interested in things like that. 90% of what he eats is more what I would call "fork foods". Except maybe his morning cereal, which he eats dry...no milk. (Just how he likes it.)
Even so, I give him the utensil that is most appropriate for the meal, and he would rather just use his fingers. He does better with a fork, but it's still pretty rare. He'll be two in early November, and I'm starting to worry that I'm doing something wrong. =o/
I always applaud and get excited when he actually does use his fork. We use our forks and spoons in front of him. I'm not sure what else to do.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great!
