Top 12 Baby Spoons For Weaning
Weaning can be a little bit scary for a new mom and whole lot of fun! When you start feeding your baby solids, you need to get some baby bowls and baby spoons and you’d be surprised about how much choice is out there. There are so many baby weaning products and weaning spoons on the market, so I made a video review of the best 12 baby spoons for weaning, just to give you an idea of what’s out there. Some baby feeding spoons are better than others, but at the end of the day, they all do the same thing, put food in your baby’s mouth!
OXO Tot Silicone Feeding Spoon
The OXO Tot Spoon is made of stainless steel and has a silicone cover for the tip, making it hard yet soft for the baby. The shape of the spoon makes it really easy to scoop the food into your baby’s mouth. I’ve had these spoons for a couple of years, and there are still in great condition.
Bamboo Baby Feeding Spoons
The Bamboo Baby Spoons have a large soft silicone tip, you can fit a lot of food on there. They come in some funky colors and have a lovely handle made from wood. You can get a matching baby bowls and are the type of thing that would be a nice baby gift.
BOON Squirt Silicone Baby Food Dispensing Spoon
The Boon Squirt Baby Food Dispensing Spoon is a spoon where you can put your own purees inside. When you squeeze the handle the food comes out the tip of the spoon. It’s a similar idea to the pouch spoons that you just screw on the baby food pouches.
OlaSprout Bendable Spoon and Teether
The OlaSprout Baby spoon is shaped like a leaf, is green and comes in a pack of two. It’s really soft and bendable, so your baby can use it as a teether toy and a training spoon for when they are ready to start feeding themselves.
Oogaa Silicone Baby Spoon – Aeroplane & Train
The Oogaa Aeroplane Baby Spoon is shaped like an Aeroplane with a wing either side of the spoon. Similarly the Train Baby Spoon has a train shape in the middle of the spoon. So when you’re doing the ‘chew chew here comes the train’ or the Aeroplane noise, you have a train or Aeroplane in your hand. Both baby feeding spoons are bendable so double up as teethers.
Tommee Tippee Explora Feeding Spoons
The Tommee Tippee Explora Feeding Spoons are short and easy for the baby to hold. You can use these for weaning or when your baby is ready to feed themselves, so they will last longer than the spoons with the longer handle.
Tommee Tippee Explora Heat Sensing Weaning Spoons
The Tommee Tippee Explora Heat Sensing Weaning Spoons have a built in thermochromic heat sensor, so the spoon changes color when exposed to heat. The idea is that you can visually see if the baby food is too hot before you put it in your baby’s mouth, as the color of the tip will have changed. I haven’t particularly found this function of any use as I always check the food temperature myself before I put it in my baby’s mouth.
Vital Baby 4 Soft Tip and Grip Feeding Spoons
The Vital Baby Feeding Spoons have nice soft tips and come in a range of colors. If you get the matching baby feeding bowls, the spoons clip into the cover of the bowl, so it’s really handy to put in your nappy bag when you’re out and about.
mOmma Soft Spoon
The mOmma Soft Spoon has a round circular ball for a handle and wide tip for holding the baby food. When you set the spoon down on the table the tip points upwards, as the base is heavy and shaped like a ball, so the spoon wobbles. It comes with a cover which can be used to extend the ball as a handle.
Munchkin Soft Tip Spoons & Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoon
The munchkin soft tip spoons are just the basic weaning spoons, they are handy and inexpensive. Munchkin also do a range of heat sensing safety spoons – the Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoon. The spoons have a nice tip which makes it easy to scoop the food into your baby’s mouth and have a built in heat sensor so they change color when the food is hot. You can watch the video review to see the spoon in action.
