I started giving my babies a spoon and fork after 9 months. I waited until they could feed themselves small pieces with their fingers. It was quite awhile before my kids could feed themselves on their own with a spoon or fork. It was quite a messy learning process as well. Let your baby have plenty of practice and don't be discouraged if it take many months to figure it out.
