Tell Me How... To Get My 10-Month Old to Stop Throwing Food.
Spencer is 10 months. And he's in a throwing phase (at least I hope it's a phase!!) He throws food, his sippy cup, silverware, toys... pretty much whatever he's holding. He loves throwing his toys and chasing them all over the house. It's not so much a problem with throwing toys and the like... but when we put food in front of him, he chucks it onto the floor. I'd love to make the rule that if you throw food, then you're done eating. But I don't think he's old enough to "get" it yet. Obviously, we're not going to starve him, and he throws food at the very beginning of the meal (not just at the end, to indicate he's done). So tell me how to teach him not to throw food. Is this just a phase? He used to be so good at eating whatever we put in front of him, and now he just throws it. Can he be taught? Do we just need to wait it out?
Advice from all you experienced parents would be much appreciated.
