Trying to get your child on to solid food can be a tricky time in any parents life. It can also be exciting to introduce new foods to the table. We all know that it doesn’t always go as planned so it’s best to have a few helpful products at hand ready for your babies new adventure of new foods. In this article, we will go through some great products which can help in the weaning stage to make life that little bit easier, not messier though as that is all part of the fun!
Let’s start with the most essential item on the list, weaning bibs. These are great products to have nearby when weaning your child. They are water-resistant so your child won’t get wet or dirty if things are spilt due to them covering the child from top to bottom. They are extremely easy to put on and your child has full manoeuvrability so they can still get to their food. They are also great for wet and messy play amongst other things and can just be wiped down with baby washcloths. This will help to make feeding time that little bit less stressful as well as having the benefit of no stained clothes.
Feeding Spoon Dispenser
Feeding dispenser spoons are amazing, they are one of the most helpful pieces of equipment I have used to help with feeding time. We all know it is not an easy task feeding your toddler, especially when they are trying to grab everything. Well, these spoons remove the jar and the mess away from feeding. The food goes in one end and comes out the other by squeezing the part that has the food. Most stand up straight so that the spoon doesn’t touch any surface as well as them having a cap on the spoon so no food leeks out. If you haven’t already, give them a go and see how you get on, they may take some time to get used to, but once you get the hang of them, they are a godsendMahrus.
Bamboo Weaning Set
There are plenty out there but one of the best weaning set I have found includes a big grip spoon, a meal divider and a bowl which also includes a suction pad that sticks onto most hard surfaces including high chairs so this means less mess for parents. Not only is this a great set to start weaning with, but it is also sustainable so it’s great for the eco-conscious. Bamboo is more durable and stronger than plastic and doesn’t give off any unwanted chemicals that are involved with plastic. The spoon is also naturally antibacterial and ant-microbial meaning it is safe for children. This is genuinely such a great quality set that can last you more than one child.
There are so many innovative products out now to make parents lives that little bit easier, whether that is weaning or even nappy changing. We all have our own way of doing things and not one way is right. These products have helped to wean my child and I hope they do for yours.
