Boots Heat Sensor Weaning Spoons
I got these spoons for my daughter when she turned six months as it was time to start weaning her onto solid foods. I found these spoons on special offer in Boots for £1.50 for 4 spoons so I thought why not it was so cheap for these spoons they were worth a try.
**WHAT ARE THEY**
They are weaning spoons for babies that you can use between 4-6 months onwards basically from when you start to wean your child. They are shallow so its easy for your baby to get food off them and perfect for tiny mouths.
They are heat sensitive so the tip of the spoon which is soft (like rubber) will change colour when the food is too hot for your baby. They will change from purple to pink to warn you that the food is too hot.
The actual spoon itself has quite a long handle compared to other weaning spoons. The handle is curved so its easy to handle and hold even for your little one to hold when they wish.
There is no sharp edges on the spoon so you don't need to worry about this as the ends are curved also.
The handle is bright yellow in colour which will get your babies attention, well it gets my daughters anyway. On the end of the handle the Boots logo can be seen in purple.
The tip of the spoon is soft and almost rubbery like to taste in your mouth. It is shallow so its easy to get small spoonfuls for your child.
This tip is great as it is purple however if the food is too hot or even if you are washing it in hot water the tip will change from dark purple to pink.
I find this useful to reassure myself that the food is not too hot. However always check yourself if the food is cool enough for your child.
I like the look of these spoons as they are cute to look at and are a nice shape and size.
My daughter loves these spoons and I can happily under my supervision give her one to try to attempt to spoon feed herself however she is still at the stage of just chewing on it but it's a learning experience.
The spoons give you a nice amount of portion of food on it to give to your child at any one time and it is nice that the tip is not hard and it is smooth so you know its not going to be harsh in their wee mouths.
I love the way that this spoon changes colour when you are using it. I am reassured that my judgement is correct.
You should never though just go by the colour of the spoon itself always check yourself just in case the food it still too hot.
It is easy to wash these spoons and dry. If you wish they can be cleaned in a dishwasher. Another good thing is that if you wish you can sterilise them by an approved method.
Make sure to throw away your spoons if they show any sign of weakness as otherwise they may be harmful to your child.
Always check the food you have prepared yourself and make sure to stir any food very well before giving to your child as there could be hot spots.
I think these spoons were fantastic value for money especially as I got them on special offer. I would recommend them to anyone.
Summary: great value
