Any one worry about kid being too advanced...

I really want to do once every 2 months since she is a pain to be... More

My 2yo doesnt like to feed himself

Breakfast is the only meal I can get him to sit down and eat... And even then he might not want to feed himself. I think when he was learning to eat solids I had such an aversion to messes that I thought it better to feed him myself. He has the coordination to do it just not the desire. How can I encourage him to feed himself and actually sit down to eat (hes a travel eater) at this later... More
