Self-feeding

During our short trip to Port Dickson last weekend (will write about it in my next entry), I tried letting Elyssa self-feed herself at breakfast time. To my utmost surprise, she had no trouble feeding herself! Relatively mess-free too.

Great thing was that I could enjoy my breakfast without her saying "EAT" every few minutes. ;)

What she self-fed herself :
1. Porridge with cut-up boiled egg & baby corn.
2. Plain yoghurt with cut-up papaya & watermelon.



Since that day, my mum has let Elyssa self-feed her daily porridge. Still need to assist her a little (this greedy girl has a tendency to take TOO much in one spoonful !) and of course it's a bit more messy, but overall she does a pretty good job. Way to go Elyssa !!

that's a great achievement! initially they will create a mess, but when they get hold of it, there will be less mess!

maybe you can try using a plastic bib so her top won't get dirty easily.

anyway, she looks like a pro holding the spoon :-) no worries, she will get it right soon!

Mummy Gwen/ Barbara/Irene/Jasmine - This greedy girl will do anything for FOOD. ;)

Merryn /YC - I didn't realise until I saw your comments! Nowadays, I try to switch to her right hand when she eats. She seems to be comfortable either way.

Rachel/YC/June - yaloh,I didn't pack enough bibs for that trip. Next time, I need to make sure that I pack one of the plastic bibs besides the normal cloth bibs.

Clever girl. Now mommy and daddy can have a peaceful meal time. Don't worry about the mess. It's the price you have to pay for her to learn self-feeding. Can start teaching her how to use fork too.
