Agreed. She's asking for it. She opens her mouth for it and I'm sure when she says or indicates that she's had enough, he stops. Fine in my opinion! We do this sometimes. And we're giving a lot of loaded forks at the moment

You can stay if I can! TheWriggler insisted that I feed him his breadsticks and hummus yesterday. TheBean was tucking in with gusto but my 3 year old needed help!

My 3 year old regularly wants me to help him with his yogurt. So we can all stay!!

Oh good, glad I'm not the only one. My 3y7mo will only eat vegetable soup/baked beans if I feed him. I'm too tired to get into arguments with him and he won't eat very much as it is so I'm just glad he's eating something.

But :oops:

You can definitely stay! A few of us have already confessed to occasionally spoon feeding our toddlers! www.babyledweaning.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 79#p435318 How come the babies never need spoon feeding but the toddlers do?!

Yay! Can I come out of the closet now too?

I spoonfeed Froglet if she's tired or if we're having yoghurt. I never force her though - the spoon is held close by and she gets it if she leans forward for it! She also gets the spoon near the end of the yoghurt to have a go herself. She's def getting better at scooping but yoghurt is still pretty tricky.

Same - at 22 mths "Can mummy help?" I was hoping we might have it nailed by the time new baby's here and she's 26 mths. But maybe not by the sounds of it!
