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!
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.)
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
