Every parent deals with this phase of teaching the kid to eat on his\her own.
There are three types of babies:
- The too clean tidy baby or in fact too clean parent. This baby is fed with a tissues until reaching relatively old age.
- The too “messy” one. This baby feels almost free to grab the food in hands put in on the face, clothes and all over.
- The one who eats with a parent standing nearby and clean the area once a while and “no no-ing”
Eating is not just about getting a meal. It represents the whole motor, discipline, enjoying and sort of quality time between mom/dad/ grannies etc. and baby. It is a big deal if you look at it that way.
Every baby eating type is a reflection of you and your relationship. If you take this issue seriously you can take a vantage of the fact the baby is hungry and sitting, to work on whatever the skills you want him/ her to learn.
I have to confess, i am the third type mom. I prefer my Noora clean yet sort of loose. She eats neatly and clean.. in fact too neat and clean. Others can refer this fact that “dirty type” is a happier and free kids who is explored to many aspects of eating and learning.
They are maybe right, but i cant stand the mess around the baby seat 😉
have a perfect day
