I read everywhere that at around 10 months babies should start feeding themselves. Trying to teach good manners early I gave them each a spoon and let them go at it...
Looks pretty good huh? Day 1 was a complete success. Apart from a few dishes on the floor, cereal behind every ear and even in a diaper, (I have no idea?!?) and three completely covered bibs we all survived! I could do this again right? Well, my plan was to let them feed themselves cereal every morning and I would continue doing the lunch and dinner; seems reasonable enough, right? Wrong! These three babies took that independence with the spoon seriously, they wanted to feed themselves at every meal. This wouldn't be so bad but like I said before cereal was everywhere! Who has time to clean up that kind of pandemonium three times a day? Not me, thats for sure! After several days of trying to keep up with the trio it was clear I may have started a bit too early with the spoon feeding. On the other hand, the babies are doing great with feeding themselves solid food so maybe I'll try again with the spoons in a few months!
|Hmmm...I wonder what she wants me to do with this.|
|Oh, I get it now!|
|Only the beginning|
|Which one should I choose?|
|Who can pick when you can have the best of both worlds!|
Wow after looking at my pictures it doesn't really seem like that big of a mess! Let me tell you pictures can be deceiving!
