I CAN DO IT MYSELF!
Zoe loves oatmeal. This makes me happy as she has been a bit of a picky eater up to this point.
She is also at the stage where she wants to feed herself. She actually eats so much better when she does but with oatmeal, I didn't want to let her do it as she still misses the mark tremendously and often tests out the aerodynamics of it all. I prefer a little more freedom in my parenting than I do a bunch of uptight rigid rules, especially if it encourages them to learn about their environment and gives them confidence. So I gave in. The spoon made it for about 2 bites and then it was a full on "hands on session".
