WHO DOESN’T LIKE A RECOMMENDATION? ESPECIALLY BY SOMEONE WHO ISN’T BEING PAID TO SELL YOU STUFF. HERE ARE A FEW OF THE ITEMS I FOUND MOST USEFUL/BEST VALUE OR BEST QUALITY DURING MY BABY LED WEANING JOURNEY...
This is the bowl you will see pictured the most in my photos and it’s made by a company called Bamboo Bamboo. Elsi also uses a gorgeous divided plate which is perfect once your little one is eating bigger portions and with the separate sections it really does encourage you to think more creatively and put extra veg etc on the plate. Made from sustainable bamboo it is ethical and it is also made from BPA-free silicon to stop your baby coming into contact with toxins. Plus your little one won't be able to knock it flying as it has a fantastic suction base! Before we had this many of Elsi's meals went overboard but your baby will have to be very determined to shift this!
I love the shape of this plate and the soft shade of yellow. There are so many divided plates out there but the ones by Rice are really unique. I often wash it by hand but it is dishwasher safe should you be lucky enough to have one. Oh, and it also comes in a whale shape which is equally cute.
I’ve mentioned these in previous blog posts but I found this the easiest way to make the right sized food portions during weaning. If they gobble it down you can always heat more cubes but when using larger pots so much went uneaten. This tray comes with a handy silicone lid that stops any leaks.
While we have always loved the handy catch all bibs from Tommee Tippee they don't protect your babies sleeves or lap and they are also a little rigid whereas these bibs are so lightweight and comfy. It's also handy the way you can either give them a wipe or put them in the wash with the rest of the laundry. I wouldn't say the 'catch all' pocket has been that useful for us but then she is much more dexterous these days!
This is definitely a great value buy. They come in packs of 5 for just £2! They are microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe, made from food grade plastics and are BPA-free.
I will keep updating this list with our favourites so do check back.
