Did I get your attention? I'm not really doing baby led. The last week or so I've been handing the spoon to my 8.5 DS during meals. Well.....last night and this afternoon we had an all out war in the high chair. HE WANTS the spoon ALL the time. This afternoon he ate half his lunch he was so upset. SCREAMING and CRYING! Is this what I get for trying to let him have some independence?
He wanted out of the highchair and did not want to eat anymore. I caved after letting him scream for 2-3 min and gave him the spoon. It scares me for one thing choking, gaging on the spoon. The second is when I give him the spoon , he's so interested in it he won't open his mouth to continue eating when I use a different one. Then finally after took him out of the chair and I calmed him down he freaked when I tried to put him back in it with the sippy! So I completely gave up and nursed him .
My husband cannot understand why I'm changing things on him and I think he's right. If I help him sleep ( co-sleeping, nursing to sleep ) why am I trying to teach food independence so young? What should I do now? I feel like I have turned things upside down on him?
