You can do it

When your baby grows into a small child, it will have to face a whole host of new challenges. Small children think it is a great adventure to eat and drink on their own rather than being fed. Curious about everything the grown-ups are doing, they first embark on a tour of discovery at the table. They squelch,
smear, and generally make a mess. Even if only a little food actually goes in their mouths to start with _ let your child experiment in peace so that they can have fun when learning to be independent. A little bit of help in the form of leak-proof beakers and non-slip wide dishes will make everyday life easier and gradually encourage your child to eat and drink unassisted.
