Having a little baby in the house sure does light the vibe up, bringing cheer and laughter to everyone around them. As innocent and joyful babies can be, they can also turn into cranky little monsters when they are sleepy, hungry, or moody. One of the toughest times new parents can face while caring for their baby is making them eat all the food and baby formula without a fuss. If you have a happy child that loves veggies like broccoli and pumpkin, you’re blessed. We’ve heard the pleas of parents all over the world to help them keep feeding time a smooth sailing experience and are here to help.
Listed below is our favorite feeding equipment that will ensure that your tiny tot’s tantrums don’t create a royal mess, saving you cleaning time and effort!
Baby Feeding Set
How nice would it be to have everything you need for a meal placed in one set? This is one of those baby feeding products that you cannot pass upon. A set that includes an easy-clean silicone bib, a spoon, and a fork that your tot can grip. The other additions are cups with a wide base and a uniquely shaped plate shape to prevent them from tipping over. The best part is that they all can be put into a dishwasher.
The Crumb Catcher
The crumb catcher does exactly what it says, it is silicone, dishwasher-safe equipment to be spread out under the baby’s meals to prevent dirtying surfaces. The raised edges help food stay on the mat, and can easily be wiped. Once your kid is finished eating, you can simply roll it up and put it in the diaper bag (if you’re dining out)
Grabby Eater Special Products
If your child isn’t quite able to use spoons yet, it still won’t stop them from staring at adult food and lunging at your plates! The grabbing ring and net can help you add a slice of fruit or cooked veggies for your little ones to nibble on. It also doubles as a gum soother if you add frozen baby food to soothe sore gums.
Getting the habit of scooping food takes time and expertise, something that kids can explore for quite some time before they get it right. That means that food can often be pushed around in and off the plate to move into a spoon. One impatient second later, the entire plate can be flipped over if they get too excited or restless. Buying a baby feeding product with a curved, bowl-like lip gives an anti-tipping effect to the plate and keeps food from spilling or falling till the baby can start using a spoon properly. The weighted base also keeps the bottom-heavy enough to avoid being toppled and is an absolute winner.
