Hi Mums! I was just wondering what pieces of weaning equipment you felt/feel you could not have done without during the weaning process and why! what would you recommend to others?
As we currently live in a very small house, and are in the process of moving, I have been quite streamlined when it comes to getting equipment!
I had thought I was going to cook all my own food, and do the puree thing, and I already have a food processor.......... however I am on jars of food at the moment! So can't live-without kit:
So have only bought the spoons and cup
My brother max storage pots are great for freezing food and the push up bases makes it easy to pop out frozen food into a bowl. I also use them when im out and about to prevent any food spilling into my bag.
A splash mat to catch all the food that ends up on the floor! Although i now need a bigger one as the bigger he gets the further the food goes!
Plenty of spoons (any will do but the soft flexible ones are great for the early stages) I find spoons everywhere! Then when i need one they are no where to be seen! So always have back up spoons
A high chair with a good size tray. I use a babystart one, its plastic so easy to wipe down after and is cheap and cheerful.
My LO wouldn't drink out of any baby cups so we use a doidy now and it works perfectly
I found normal ice cube trays a good size for freezing bulk food, esp. In the beginning, you can then just 2 or 3 out as they want more. Freeze then empty into freeze bags means they don't take up too much room in freezer.
I'm not normally one for random kitchen gadgets, but I have just found and bought this nifty little thing that hulls strawberries quickly and effectively!! no more wasted strawberry tops or red fingernails/cut fingers! Its fun to use too! my LO loves strawberries so this is very useful!! lol!
