    Or a Fork, Lol.

    When should Alanna be using one?

    She will pick up a spoon or fork with food on it and eat off it, then smash it into the bowl, But dont pick anything up..

    Should I just superglue a bowl of soup infront of her, put her outside with it, and let her work it out? Lol

    It's all a case of learning so yeah, let her go wild with it! My lo has only started actually eating off the fork and spoon at 17 months. I found she had far more luck with a fork though. She preferred it as well for some reason. Just keep offering and she'll get the hanging it.

    Islas 14 months and places the spoon or fork back in the bowl. She won't try and lift food but will eat a preloaded spoon on her own. She's still little so don't worry

    I was thinking this... a friend of mine saw me feeding campbell and thought it was weird he wasnt using a bowl, eating from his tray using his hands! Gosh is he an animal?? I just think he is too young to use a bowl (will throw it everywhere!) and I dont know when to start letting him try with a spoon?

    It's not about being an animal it's BLW (baby led weaning) it encourages the baby to try new foods and stuff aparently Ezzie does it with finger foods. I guess it would look weird if you didn't know what was goin on x
