Helping a baby feed by his own self

Babies always make a lot of problem while on a feed. It is indeed tremendously tough to manage the baby while feeding. Parents and caretakers need to be enormously patient and careful while feeding the baby. By about seven months your baby will be making a strong-minded effort to feed himself. Spoon-feed him first, keeping the bowl out of contact. Then let him play with the residual food while still feeding him. Let him dip his fingers in the bowl and thrust food in to his mouth. Finger foods are less messed up at this stage. Hold a sipping cup for him, but fill up a spoon that he can pick up and hold himself, The spoon need to be disinfected and must be ready to bring into play.
Assist him by enduring to feed him yourself, but let him play with his food. Have a warm washcloth useful, and face the fact that most mealtimes engage a great deal of mess. Then you can show your baby how to grip a spoon and get food in his mouth rather than smear it all over his face. Be uncomplaining with him for the symptom, and allow yourself the time to make this a fun as well as a learning experience. One can with no trouble spot out that there will be a steady development of coordination in this regard.
