Baby about to start solids? Here are some of our feeding must haves:
This will be the first time baby has eaten with a spoon, try to start with spoons that don’t hold too much food and have a soft tip. Test out a few different options to see what works best for your baby. We like these spoons from Spuni, they have an ergonomic design that promotes baby’s latching instinct.
Skip the fabric bibs and opt for a bib that wipes clean easily and have a pocket to catch anything that spills. These 100% silicone bibs from Chewbeads come in a 2 pack and are dishwasher safe.
Small unbreakable bowls are the way to go, start with a small set of stackable bowls like these from Munchkin.
4. Splat Mat
Feeding time will be messy! Lay a mat, like this one from Posh Play, under baby’s high chair for easy clean-up.
5. High Chair
Pick the right type of chair for your family, there are many different types including ones that strap to a chair and those that are freestanding. We like this chair from 4moms.
6. Sippy Cups
Introducing the sippy cup around the time you start solids can help make weaning easier, we like Munchkin starter sippy cup as a beginner sippy cup. Check with your pediatrician for tips on choosing the right cup.
7. Baby Food Maker
If you want to make some of your own baby food a baby food maker will make that easier, this one from Beaba is one of our favorites.
8. Constipation Ease
Introducing solids can sometimes cause constipation in babies, Mommy’s Bliss Constipation Ease* is a safe & effective liquid herbal supplement used to promote regular bowel movements and ease occasional constipation*.
