Order Matters!

Dash loves to feed himself and is rapidly improving his pincer grasp. Meal time is messy, but the most fun time of the day! We usually spoon-feed him something out of a bowl, then give him finger foods to pick up. Most of the time he manages at least once to get his hand into the bowl of mashed banana or chicken with sweet potato. Rather than eat it, he rubs it in his hair/nose/eyes/ears. After some trial and error, I have found that the only way to clean him up after meal time is in the following order.

1. Wipe off tray.

2. Wipe off hands.

3. Wipe off face.

If I wipe off face first, food goes right back on it via hands. If I wipe off hands first, they go right back onto food covered tray, then onto face.
