My 20-month-old son refuses to eat with a spoon. He started to use one and pretty well quite early, but now for a few months he refuses and gets upset when I try to encourage him. He will take the spoon and put food on it and then hand it to me to give to him instead of feeding himself. When I try to encourage him to feed himself he will get very upset.
He’s also not talking much yet. Has a few words but not a lot. Pediatrician says she isn’t too concerned because he’s bilingual and that can take them more time. It’s just hard because he can’t tell me what he wants and gets just as frustrated with me as I am with him.
