There’s nothing like watching your little one smash potatoes all over his face, and your whole kitchen, for the first time. But initial solids can also come with many questions, especially for a first-time mother. From thinking about the best time to start with the right types of foods to offer, navigating this transition can be complicated and messy.
So, apart from investing in a large box of baby wet wipes and the largest laundry detergent bottle, what exactly will you need to immerse yourself in the world of initial solids? We tell you!
If you feel that much of the effort to start with solids is about preventing clutter… you’re right. Simple (but incredibly useful) innovation. The floor mats are made of soft leather bonded and are waterproof and easy to clean.
They are perfect to avoid clutter under the high chair, but also so much more, a sand-free place on the beach, a picnic blanket, a clean place for a diaper change, a handcrafted carpet… The list goes on and on.
A waterproof bib
A waterproof and easy to clean bib is essential. After trying many, many different options of fabric bibs, this is the best… they are simply amazing. They are usually made of a BPA-free, food-safe plastic, which means you don’t have to throw them away after every meal. Simply clean them (or put them in the dishwasher) and save some loads of laundry.
They usually have a soft and adjustable neckband, a deep front pocket that catches spills. In addition, it retains its shape, they are also resistant to stains and odor.
A minimalist high chair
Elegant, smart and designed to shrink as your child grows, this type of high chair has a minimalist dream come true. This combination of high chair and play chair usually has two sets of legs so it can be used long after they grow out of the baby’s phase. With a modern style that is easy to clean, it adapts to your decor easily.
A flexible spoon
Inspired by nature and designed to Be the first automatic baby feeding spoon, this type of spoon features a flexible, rounded tip normally that bends to use from any angle. It is also ergonomically designed for small hands, and the wide base allows the spoon to rest upright to avoid germs. The design is usually super flexible, it also works perfectly as a teether for those little gums!
Kids Water Mug
Starting with Solids is also the perfect time to introduce your little one to a children’s cup to drink water, but if seeing your little one get frustrated isn’t the best on your list of fun things to do, you’ll need a cup that is easy to prepare. The straw also has a weighted end that anchors it in the liquid to help your baby drink effectively, even when the cup is tilted.
