It’s exciting for a mother to step into the next milestone with her baby. Starting with semi-solids or solid food items is a little bit trickier than the other milestones. Care needs to be taken to make sure the child does not burn his mouth on hot food, or choke on the feeding equipment. He needs to be as excited for this next step, as you are.
Whether it’s you feeding the child, or the child making an attempt on his own to feed himself, we always want to be stress-free and have confirmation that our choices are the best for our child. Babyhug heat sensitive spoons are made from heat sensitive plastic material, which will avoid any burns. If the food is hot, the colour at the tip of the spoon will change, indicating it’s hot for the child.
These spoons are ergonomically designed, they are durable, and are baby friendly. It’s also BPA-free! The hygienic base is an added feature, which is great. The spoons come in sets of two in attractive colours, and are light in weight. I got the green and blue combination set, and my child was excited to try them out, and couldn’t wait for me to open them!
They are super easy to wash, but do avoid using harsh, chemically-made soaps or liquids. Avoid using a harsh scrubber to avoid scratches.
As it is EN 14372 certified, we know it specifies safety requirements relating to the materials, construction, performance, packaging, and labelling of cutlery and feeding utensils, which is an important factor while selecting products for our young ones. That being said, they are not fit for a 3 year old. The feeding end is small and shallow, that would appropriately fit a toddler’s mouth. The rounded edges prevent hurting the baby’s sensitive skin. The small size of the feeding end is perfect for little mouths.
They have long handles that make it easy for parents to feed their toddlers. As the amount of food that drops off the spoons is usually more than what reaches the mouth during the attempts to self-feed, these spoons with their long handles make it difficult to learn the hand-to-mouth action faster, and shallow feeding ends can not hold enough food as compared to a deeper-dished end.
As advised, toddlers must be given the spoons to eat with under supervision. But even if it’s difficult to be attentive at every second, as there are no detachable parts, the spoons do help prevent choking hazards.
This is a good product for toddlers starting with semi-solids.
