Hello Mummies. My baby is 10 months old now and I'm doing BLW with her. Right now I am guiding her to self feed using fork and spoon for Rice with soup and when she's eating noodles. But she prefers to use her hands instead and will not drink the soup. How do i get her to hold the fork and spoon? She throws it every time I try :(

Hi there, I found this baby feeding video on youtube (link below) and I found it super informative. It's important to establish the link between utensil and the mouth by lots of practice. Initially you can guide her along but subsequently, you should let baby hold the spoon and even if she throws it away, pick it up, wash it and let baby try again. It will messy but apparently it's part of the learning process :) Think your baby is doing well for her age, just keep encouraging her :) https://youtu.be/XoVfF3BACvA
