Feeding is a contact sport

will eatingI didn’t realize that feeding a baby was a full contact sport. For the short time I did feed Jack he was generally a pretty clean eater. He did get food on his face, but for the most part he was clean. Will on the other hand is the complete opposite, by the time we are done both he and I are covered.

This is how a typical feeding goes.

  • He grabs a the spoon and helps you bring it in his mouth, but now is hands are messy.
  • He is still learning to open his mouth big enough for the spoon, so he gets food all around his mouth and sometimes in his nose.
  • One of his favorite skills right now is to blow raspberries (or spit), until the last few days more of his food would come back out than stay in, now his chin and bib are covered.
  • As I try to get the spoon through the gatekeepers (his hands), I tend to drop some on his tray, which his hands and arms now get in it.
  • At some point he will rub his eyes and/or put his hand in his hair.
  • In the end his entire face (sometimes head), all the way under his chin and up to his elbows are completely covered with whatever he is eating.
  • As for me, I end up with it on my hands and forearms, if I am lucky enough not to have dropped any in my lap.

It is very cute, but I have to be prepared for the mess. I wonder what his means for him as he grows up, will he always be a messy eater? If he is, at least he will have fun while he is eating. The interesting thing is he tends to be drawn to veggies, carrots and peas have been his favorites, so far.

I think the key for us is to wear the color of the food he is eating. At least it is fall now and earth tones are in.
