I was worried she was not learning fast enough to eating with utensils so I googled it and the "experts" say that 13 month old love to bang the tray with the utensils. But a 15 month old will use them properly to eat. She has two more months to fully accomplish this goal!
It's usually a mess but she has to learn some how. If we are in a hurry, need to go any where, or eating out I will feed her.
