Transitioning from bottle to bowl is a challenge. Infants have to get used to the spoon and the baby food before they can do it on their own. Meanwhile, expect a lot of mess and resistance. Things will get a lot better in time.
You can make it a bit easier by using the right products for the job. For example, you can try reusable food pouches in the beginning as these have small openings and are less likely to cause spills. You can make baby food at home and use the pouches for storage in the refrigerator.
Once the infant is used to the food, you can start using a silicone bowl that has a suction cup at the bottom to keep it in place. This will prevent the bowl from turning over due to a hyperactive child. Make sure that you are using non toxic feeding products for long-term health.
