TLW????

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

TLW????

Tonight the puppy would only eat risotto if I fed it to him on a spoon or if he put his face in the plate. My child is odd but at least he lives up to his nickname. Not sure about the spooning business though, that's not the first time this week. He hands me the spoon and looks at me very intensely until I feed him. Luckily he gets bored after a few spoons from me but still...

Oh dear - there must be something in the air - The Babs 'asked' to be spoon fed yesterday for the first time. She was having yoghurt on loaded spoons and as I went to hand it to her she lent towards the spoon with her mouth wide open like a little chick. Two spoons later and she wanted control back - phew.

Repeat after me - its a phase, its a phase, its a phase!

I think every BLW'er does this at some stage (HUGE generalisation there!) I think they figure it is more fun to eat that way, at lease for a while :-)

L does it too! He loves holding the spoon between his teeth and getting me to pull it out (plastic spoons only!). Thankfully it isn't at every meal and it does seem to be a funny game for him rather than a way of life...

haha, ds has done this a couple of times. I prefer it over the intense look that I get, that only gets satisfied if I lean over and let him spoonfeed me LOL

Yes, the puppy does this too! We do it with tea spoons (shouldn't I?) and I make silly noises when I pull it out. Cue hysterical laughter.
Squirt, I don't get the intense look for being fed, I'm offered anything the puppy doesn't feel like eating (mainly anything green), sometimes he offers me stuff he likes and means it (wow) but mainly he offers it and then pulls it away at the last second, cue hysterical laughter. And we certainly don't do that to him so it's his first joke I guess.

R refuses risotto unless its mummys, and fork fed to him while he pops up over the sofa arm like a cheaping baby bird, but if I offered him his own bowl of risotto...

Yeah Kleintje is obsessed with feeding me now at the moment. Yesterday she fed me a piece of a tortilla wrap. As I was halfway through chewing it, she got a thoughtful look on her face, opened my mouth and took the half-masticated food back.

So now, despite having teeth, she wants me to do her chewing for her‽

all normal according to how it went with Tigerle's BLW process. :)

She insisted on "giving" me & DH her food for a few months (i.e shoving food into our mouth), then went the other way around & insisted on being given food instead (at the time I suspected that it came from the nursery as she was only starting for a few weeks in there). But after a few months it all went away & she ate her own food on her own happily as before.

It's a phase, it's a phase, it's a phase. :)

Yep, a phase! My 3y/o wanted me to spoon feed her today too. She does it every now and again. I think with her it's that the baby is getting more attention at meal times, and she wants in on that too!

Froglet often reaches her spoon out to me and says, "Help please mummy". I have generally been laughing and saying, "No. You do it"! However, she now thinks it's a game. A very, very tedious game that involves her asking for "hep peese" and smiling a really cheeky smile before every.single.spoonful.

Ach, I suppose it's kind of cute.

we've just come back from a weeks holidays with the in-laws and I gave up after 3 days with my MIL feeding flump everything... However I made sure since we come back to give her no spoons at all, freezing yoghurts into lollipops etc and it's worked we're back to normal thank heavens
