I have a 11 month old who loves to feed himself. Since he has gotten older, he has begun to savvy up to the fact that sometimes I slip something yucky (such as his vitamin drops) in his mouth when he opens right up for me to feed him.

It can also make him hard to feed, especially as he tends to choke on anything bigger than a cheerio. He's getting better now, but I have seen smaller babies throw down great hunks of food that my son would never manage. So I still feed him purees once in a while when I just can't find anything in the cupboards that he can feed himself safely.
