Spoon Feeding - Choosing the right spoon for your baby!

We all heard about how the baby-led weaning method improves baby's self-feeding and coordination, developing mainly the pincer grasp motor skills.

Nonetheless, paediatricians all over the world advice on the traditional spoon-feeding training as being equally important when it comes to developing motor skills inside the mouth of our little ones.
In fact, a very impressive fine-motor milestone is when our babies learn how to suck food from the spoon and manage to push it down the throat without spitting it out.

Learning how to handle cutlery initiates and drives a powerful and necessary notion of action and reaction. 
In combination, both spoon-feeding and baby-led weaning are the perfect balance you want your baby to eat through.

Here are Miniware's 5 tips on how to spoon-feed your baby

What you should know before you start baby feeding with a spoon:

  1. Choose a baby spoon that is narrow enough to fit into a baby’s mouth without hurting her face or causing extra mess. 

  2. Make sure the material is safe, soft, flexible and non-toxic as your baby will probably chew on it. 

  3. Let your baby play with the spoon even when there is no food on it. She will get comfortable bringing it to the mouth.

  4. Create a routine to feed your baby. Remember that your baby relates to you the most and she will probably trust the experience if she sees that you're doing it too. Eat together!

  5. Last but not least, buy less and buy smart, Mamma. Think about the products you buy and how they can be useful longterm. It is up to us to make a difference to the environment where our kids are growing into.
