My baby will be a year old in a few weeks and still will not eat by himself. He has absolutely no interest in even trying finger foods. He just throws everything on the floor. I show him how to pick it up and eat it; I stop his hand and say, "Don't throw. We eat
the carrots, apples, whatever," but he throws and just cries until I feed him from the spoon. Should he be eating by himself by now? If so, what can I do to encourage / help him? Will my continuing to feed him pose any eating problems down the road?
