Weaning with the help of Vital Baby

25 Apr

When Evie was of the age to be weaned I didn’t really go in for many gimmicky baby products. We had some spoons of course, but they were the ones that were given free with baby food or on special at the baby even at the supermarket and the baby mush food was frozen into cubes in ice cube trays. One thing that we did buy though were some amazing bowls made by “Vital Baby”.

These bowls had a suction pad that fixed on the high chair tray and then the bowl twisted onto the top of them. Even my daughter couldn’t pull the bowl off and we used it until she was quite big!

Vital baby sent me a couple of items to test. These were some blue baby spoons and some little pots with lids that could be put into the freezer.

Isaac was very impressed with the spoons as they are blue for a start and he was sick of his sisters pink cast-offs! There are five in a pack so there are plenty to keep you going with a couple in the wash, one for him to hold, one to feed him with and a spare for when you drop one on the floor mid-feed!

The spoons are nicely shaped with rounded corners and they are made of a bendable plastic at the spoon end so he doesn’t hurt his little gums when he has a bit of a chew on them. He is enjoying using them so far!

The little pots are a very clever idea. They are just bigger than ice cube size so are suitable for little portions of food at the very beginning.

They can be frozen and then you can pop the food out easily using the flexible base of the pot.

I think the pots will be very useful for stewed and pureed fruit in perfect portion sizes to mix with porridge as a natural sweetener.

The Vital Baby spoons and freezer pots were sent to me for free to review but the words and opinions are all my own. I did purchase the bowls myself 3 and a half years ago before I ever started blogging and reviewing products.
