I am getting Emilia some bowls and a sippy cup and looking for recommendations?

I can honestly say, when I was weaning Charlie I stood in that aisle of boots for about half an hr, lol, I had no idea!!!
I've found the Tomme Tippee weaning pots really useful, come in a pack of three. Used them in the early days as bowls as to begin with they eat so little was hard to tell how much in a bowl, and now, I fill them with food to go in the freezer (but have found packs of 3 little tubs in Wilkinson for 97p which is waaaay cheaper for freezing portions of food!!!) I found the Tommee Tippee nuby cup invaluable to to begin with as a soft spout so easier transition from bottle/breast to cup. The colour changing spoons are good to to help test temp, but I never fully trust and still put to lip too. I think that's it...!
Ooh I know some people never use, but I found a pack of baby rice invaluable to begin with, I mixed it with pureed fruit and also found it good to thicken any purees that I'd made a bit watery, but that's personal choice!!
good luck and have fun!! I was really stressed to begin with but love it now!!!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
