The sweetest baby-feeding items for your little muncher.
Who’s ready to eat?! If your little one is just about ready for solid food, there are a few baby-feeding items that you’ll want to pick up.
At 6 months old, Leo definitely showed his readiness for pureed foods. We were lucky enough to be gifted with the best feeding accessories, so we were ready to go as soon as he was. With the “okay” from our doctor, Leo started snacking on bananas, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
During mealtime, here are the 5 items we couldn’t do without:
Long Baby Spoon
Look for feeding spoons that are made of BPA-free plastic. After feeding Leo for a few weeks, I found the longer ones easiest to use.
There are some fruits and veggies that just can’t be “mushed-up” with a spoon or fork. Our Baby Bullet has come in handy in getting Leo’s foods at the perfect consistency.
It’s All in the Bib
Look for bibs that can be washed and dried immediately (because who likes extra items in the laundry basket?). I like going for silicone/rubber bibs that have spill-pockets to catch all of our (mighty) messes.
For days out, I fill up lightweight containers with Leo’s favorite snacks. I prepare them the night before and pop them in our diaper bag when we’re ready to go.
Sitting High and Proud
One item I was incredibly excited for was our Peg Perego Siesta High Chair. High chairs allow your baby to be included in family meals. Leo has a new-found independence with his Siesta high-chair: he watches me in excitement (and sometimes, with little patience) as I prep his food and formula.
Once you see the name ‘Peg Perego‘, you just know that you’re looking at a product of high quality and design. The Siesta is one of their top-sellers and for good reason: it’s easy-to-use, has padded upholstery for extra comfort, and adjusts in ways you wouldn’t even think a high-chair could. It’s great for any of baby’s stages. The chair inclines in 5 different positions making it a great choice for newborns.
I love the back with its netted compartment: it makes it easy to store baby-feeding items. The 5-point safety harness is incredibly secure and a no-brainer to adjust and use.
