Starting Solids is a momentous event in the first year of a baby and our baby deserves the Best Baby feeding products.
Traditionally most of us use a silver katori and spoon for feeding solids for our babies. It has a lot of disadvantages like not being heat resistant and gets easily tarnished making it difficult to maintain. The spoons are also hard and may injure the soft palate of the baby.
Now there are a lot of good grade BPA free products available in the market which are easy to use and maintain. This article aims to highlight some of the best baby feeding products for starting solids that are a good buy and within your budget.
When I started solids for my son 4 years ago, I had to scour the baby shops in search of the perfect feeding accessories. The job has become much easier now with online shopping and for my daughter for whom I have started solids last week, I researched and selected the feeding bowls and spoons online.
Here is the list of best baby feeding products for starting solids as result of my intensive research for the perfect feeding accessories.
Tips to select the best baby feeding products for starting solids
1. Ensure both the bowl and spoons are BPA free.
2. Bowls with suction base work good for both traveling and baby led weaning.
3. Bowl with compartments helps in feeding two different foods simultaneously without the mess.
4. Spoons with soft silicon tips are preferred.
5. Spoons should be with a firm grip handle so as when the baby starts feeding by herself, she can hold the spoon easily.
