Nate had a hard time with a regular toothbrush too. I got him a battery operated one cause they’re fat and easier to hold onto. He could do that but it was really clutzy for awhile. He couldn’t get much brushed but at least he tried.
Watching him try to use a fork though was painful. He didn’t even use one for awhile.
He either picked up the food or someone fed him. His hands hurt so bad at first, until his doc upped his Neurontin enough to work. He would just sit with them face up so nothing touched them.
When he finally was able to use a fork, he was really slow and had a real hard time aiming it at the food.
I didn’t know what to do to help that problem so I just let him work at it til he got it.
Sometimes us moms don’t know how far to help or not.
