Hi Leanne, my baby is nearly 11mths, he eats well (is onto cut up vege`s, slowly progressing to small pieces of meat) & is self weaning from is formula bottles x 3 daily at present. His H2O intake from a sippy cup has also increased of late, which I`m happy about. My problem relates to his reluctance to self feed; of late if I offer him a drink he opens his mouth & leans forward with his arms at his side & drinks, if I encourage him to hold the cup he may take a small sip but then starts playing with the cup & doesn`t drink anymore. This is similar when I give him finger foods, he prefers to play with the food & eats very little, although if fed (which he seems to prefer) he`ll eat practically anything & everything. I assume I should cont. to encourage & persist, but I just wanted to check if this behaviour is indeed normal for his age.
