At meal times, your baby may show you that he wants to do things himself. He may want to hold his cup by himself.
You can avoid spills by putting just a little liquid into his plastic cup for him. Or you can give him an empty cup to hold while you feed him from another cup.
Your baby may not always be interested in eating at meal times. He may be more interested in playing with his spoon or his food. This means that meals may take longer than when he was younger. Let him explore. Learning new skills is important.
Never add corn syrup or honey to your baby’s food or drink. These foods may contain germs that can make your baby sick.
