Weaning is an exciting – and messy time of parenthood, and one that can be navigated with some essentials that will not only make it easy for you, the parent, but also not push baby too far from their comfort zone straight away, allowing them to grow as you respect their physiological boundaries and growth rate.
From as soon as puree becomes part of the diet, an infant will require different utensils such as cutlery, crockery and drinking vessels.
Here are the top selection from Chicco.
Warmy Plate: A smart and practical way to ensure baby is eating warm food, even when they eat slowly or the weather is cold. A two-tiered, non-BPA plastic plate, the Warmy Plate has a ‘basement’ layer where warm water is placed and safely locked in to gently keep the food in the layer above warm – and the cute designs are scratch-resistant and won’t come off in the dishwasher.
Sippy cups: A range that consists of Transition, Training, Advanced, Perfect, Active and Sports Cup, there is a sippy cup in the Chicco range for every stage of your infants life. All respecting the growth rate of the child, these one blow-mould cups have no seams, making bacteria build-up less and preventing splitting.
Cutlery: Beginning with a soft silicone spoon for spoon-feeding, Chicco has cutlery that will see your child right through to when they are eating with grown up utensils. All physiologically-proportioned and BPA-free, the weaning forks and spoons are the perfect way to get your child used to putting food in their own mouth safely.
All products are available online at Takealot, Loot, Thekidzone, Babanino and at selected Kids Emporium stores.
