So it has come a time that my baby wants to eat (I know right, how dare he?!?! It’s so messy!!!)… I have been holding off for as long as I can, simply because I really wanted to wait until he was 6 months old and the fact that it can take so much time and be so messy! BUT the boy wants to eat, he is screaming out for it, literally!!! He goes totally crazy every time we put any food near our mouths and he is waking all through the night… So yes I think it’s safe to say he is ready. He’s 6 months today, and even though he has tried a couple of things, I will knuckle down and get into this feeding him real food business.
I wanted to share with you my top products I think are great for making life easier and getting the good stuff into our little ones.
1. Mocka Original Wooden Highchair
: IN LOVE! I love any wooden high chair but this one is great as it is good for a very small baby right up until they grow into toddler-ville eating and beyond at the dining table. It is easily convertible to a seat. It also comes with a cushion insert to hug baby and make them feel secure and safe. For more info go to; http://www.mocka.com.au/
2. Cotton on kids bib
: These are great as they are like a big square washer. They catch all the drips and then you can wash bubs little face and hands with it when finished. for more info go to; http://shop.cottonon.com/
: Glass food containers; do I need to say anymore? They are BPA-free, phthalate-free, PVC -free, lead-free, Microwave, freezer & dishwasher safe, Airtight, Leak Proof, Won’t absorb stains or odour, Durable, Long lasting and Eco friendly. So its safe to say they are the best! For more info go to; http://littlelock.com.au/
4. SILI squeeze from Little M : “it’s not a pouch, it’s a squeeze”. I love this. The SILI squeeze is a reusable food pouch made from toxic free silicon. They are super simple to use and make heading out and about at meal time easy. It’s a great product for people on the go as you can refill at home and baby can eat from the squeeze, no mess, no fuss! Best part is that they help you to save money in the long run, are Eco friendly and majorly healthy compared to store bought pre-made baby food pouches. For more info go to; http://littlem.com.au/
5. Oogaa Meal time set
from Close 2 baby
: Cute much??? No more fighting baby as there is a spoon for him and a spoon for mummy… The cutest part is that they are designed in the shape of a little train and aeroplane to make meal time fun! It’s made from European approved food safe, high-grade silicone (higher than FDA standards). Will not leach chemicals, non-toxic, PVC and phthalate FREE! Consisting of a colorful 9oz bowl and 2 spoons. No more chips, breaks or loud noises when these bowls go whoops-a-daisy. BPA free, no harsh chemicals and easy to clean.
