eating with fingers instead of spoon

Hi mummies. My 8 mth old eats well with her hand. However she has recently been rejecting spoon fed totally which makes it a real headache when it comes to eating porridge and cereal and eating outdoors. Even when we try to teach her to eat with spoon on her own and its not working. Any idea how I can better encourage her to accept spoon again?

hehe :) That's a unique problem. But baby is still very small dear, do not worry. Try to eat with spoon in front of the baby, they pick up things from their parents very quickly. Talk to the baby about why spoon, Immitate eating with spoons. I m sure slowly the baby will learn :)
