My DH would just not eat.
I know we should stop feeding once baby stops opening her mouth for spoon, but what do you do when thats how the meal times starts. She may take a few spoons and then simply deny to open her mouth. I have to offer her a bargain like a toy or some kind of finger food so that she would eat few mor e times but then its all about screaming, crying and spitting food around.
Even with milk she only finishes half of it and then she is more interested in playing with the bottle than drinking
The first family doctor I had told me something I think is true and will never forget, babies and toddlers (and sometimes older kids) are the only ones who listen to their bodies and only eat when they are hungry.
When you if you give hamburger helper it will be messy. I recomend just a diaper maybe a bib if you want but its all mussy but any thing with sauce will be messy. I just recomend letting her try feeding herself. I also take bread and put butter and a lil jelly on it and squish it a bit cut it us small (puff size) and let her eat that.
Try the sippy cups. the tip up kind or the straw kind. let her feed herself Yes it will take longer but it might help and get her to eat.
I do recomend getting a leash that hooks to the sippy cup and to her tray on her highchair cause when she drops it and she will then it wont hit the floor. Also for the sippy I get the $2.00 munchkin ones from wal-mart with the straw. They are normally on the bottom shelf.
Good luck hope this helpes :)
