It may be hard to believe, but your baby is now a toddler! Toddlers enjoy feeding themselves and eating meals and snacks at the table with others. Yes, it can get messy, but this is your toddler's chance to explore new foods and tastes.
You may notice that your toddler does not eat as much food as before. During her first year of life, she grew extremely fast. Now that growth has tapered off, she doesn't need to eat as much.
