Oh Baby Faves: Feeding Baby

baby product starting solids

Who knew having a baby would require so much product research? The truth is, all a baby really needs is nourishment, warmth, and love. But there are definitely some things that can help make the journey easier for both of you. In this 'Oh Baby Faves', I share my personal favorite products for starting solids! 


fEEDING

avanchy bamboo bowl

Bamboo Bowl 

Avanchy Baby Suction Bowl

This spill proof bowl stays put by suctioning onto highchair trays and table tops. Made from organic bamboo and non-toxic silicone.  
* Avanchy also makes a divider plate, however I personally feel that offering meals with different foods touching may lead to more adventerous eaters. (No scientific research here, just a gut feeling.) 
 
ezpz Happy Bowl

silicone bowl & placemat

ezpz Happy Bowl

Placemat suctions to highchair trays and table tops. Contains messes and reduces spills.
* ezpz also makes a divider plate, but I prefer the bowl for reasons listed above. 
 
 
Avanchy silicone bamboo baby spoons

Spoons 

Avanchy Silicone Baby Spoon

The Avanchy bamboo bowl comes with a spoon, but it's definitely worth having extra on hand. These double as the absolute best teething toys as well. They're high quality and they don't break apart or show wear, even after being gnawed on. Bonus tip: I put my babe in her high chair while I'm cooking and hand her one of these covered in tahini or coconut cream. Keeps her busy and out of trouble!

BIBS

everyday Bib

BabyBjorn Soft Bib

This bib is both sturdy and lightweight. The pocket is deep and maintains its shape well, even when quite full. The adjustable neckband is secure but easy to put on and take off.

Travel Bib

OXO Silicone Roll Up Bib 

I prefer the BabyBjorn for our everyday bib, but we use this OXO bib when we're eating out. It's perfect for storing in the diaper bag because it rolls up very conveniently and securely.
 
 
Ikea KLADDIG bib long sleeve

long sleeved bib 

Ikea Kladdig Bib

This is especially beneficial for self-feeding babies. I often double this up with the BabyBjorn bib if we're eating something that could stain clothing. I've tried a few other long sleeved bibs but I prefer the ease of this velcro closure more than the tie back bibs. It also dries faster than the other brands I've tried.   

HIGH CHAIRS

Prepping Your Birth Canal & Probiotics In Pregnancy

You have the baby clothes washed and folded, the car seat ready to go, and the nursery set up… but have you prepped your birth canal?? (And I don’t mean kegels or a pre-birth bikini wax!)An important transfer takes place during a vaginal birth as healthy bacteria from the mother’s birth canal helps colonize the baby as it passes through.
