Top 4 Best Baby Spoons in The Market Today
Six months marks another great milestone in your baby’s life. It is at this age that most pediatricians will recommend that you introduce your angel to solid foods. A baby eating spaghetti with his/her hands is very adorable; to an adult, this is very gross. However, you won’t only be feeding your baby with spaghettis and it is for this reason that you have to ensure you select only the best baby spoons for colorful feeding times.
Why do you need special spoons when you have a kitchen full of them?
As adults, we don’t pay attention to the kind of spoon we use to feed ourselves with. As long as it scoops a good amount of food then it’s a good spoon regardless of the material used to make it. With babies, a feeding spoon is something very special and has to be chosen with a lot of care and wisdom. Personally, after my pediatrician gave me the green light to introduce solid foods to my son, I was very excited. Only to realize later in the evening that I didn’t have any baby feeding spoon. As parents, we want the best for our babies and a feeding baby is a growing baby, it is for this reason that every parent should ensure that they purchase the best baby spoons. But, the truth is most parents find themselves blank when it comes to deciding what brand has the best baby spoons.
There are over 1000 variety of baby spoons and without proper knowledge trying to select the best can be quite a challenge, similar to trying to select a specific needle in a pile of similar needles. On the brighter side, this will not be an issue to you anymore; this article will provide a list of some of the best baby spoons available in the market today clearly stating the advantages and disadvantages of each one of them. All you have to is just read through and evaluate which one of them will be the best fit for your baby.
Factors to consider when purchasing baby spoons
No matter how hard you try, your baby will obviously spill some food on the floor and create a mess. It is at this time that you reconsider purchasing that dog you saw at the pet shop so that he can clear the mess. Whatever way you use to tackle this mess, it won’t change the fact that you have to ensure that you are using only the best baby spoon to feed your angel. So, what makes a baby spoon be categorized among the best baby spoons?
Good baby spoons all tend to have very similar qualities. The following are some of the factors to consider before buying a baby feeding spoon:
- The material used- as adults, we don’t pay much attention to the material used to make the spoons we use. But, why should we? To me, the best spoon would be the one that scoops large chunks of food. However, to your baby, you have to be careful on the material used to make the feeding spoon. At that tender age, their gums are still soft and relatively sore. Most domestic spoons are made of steel; you can’t use the same on your little angel. The most recommended spoons are made from plastic, rubber or soft wood materials.
- Size and weight- the spoon you use to feed yourself will certainly not fit in your baby’s mouth. The best baby spoons are usually of a size suitable for your baby. When purchasing a baby feeding spoon ensures that the spoon is small enough to comfortably fit in your baby’s mouth and it should also be the right weight. There are times when your baby will start feeding himself/herself and if the spoon is heavy they will end up spilling more than they actually manage to put in their mouth.
- Flat tipped and soft- your baby shall still end up with food on his face despite how good you are at directing the spoon to his mouth. A flat tipped spoon is important since it allows you to easily sneak back most of the food back to his mouth. Again the spoon should be soft to avoid causing any discomfort to your baby’s delicate gum.
