Boots Baby Spoons
Advantages: Flexible and good quality
Disadvantages: Only 4 in a pack
When I was getting ready to start weaning I went shopping to Boots. I wasn't sure what I was going to need but was planning on the one bowl, two spoons method when I first started feeding my twins. Thinking that at some point they would also want a spoon each I bought quite a lot. As I didn't know which were going to work best I got a variety of different brands. I spotted a pack of bright green and yellow bowls and matching green and yellow spoons. I thought they would make a change from all the other pink spoons I had chosen but they were also available in pink.
Using the spoons
Out of 3 types of spoons I'd bought these were medium in size and so I chose to start weaning with the smallest spoons I had as my twins are very dainty for their age so only have small mouths (they still manage to make a good volume of noise though!) When the girls moved on to mashed up food at about 7 months I started using these spoons.
These are comfortable to hold and are not slippery unless they are covered in food. I find them a good length for getting into the little pots of petit filous the girls have. The handles are flexible when you are trying to wrestle them from the incredibly tight grasp that a baby has when they don't want to give you something.
Scooping up food
The spoon is fairly shallow which means that the spoon doesn't get overloaded with more food than can chewed and safely swallowed in one go. I find them easy to scoop food onto and being flexible you can easily get the last bits out of the bowl with them. Over time these spoons have ended up being mainly used for yogurts and when my little ones started feeding themselves with them they found them easy to use.
Not a teether
These spoons have been chewed a lot over the last year or so by one of my twins in particular. They have held up well, although there are teeth marks on them now.
The pack I bought contained 4 spoons and the pack size could have done with being 6 or 8, other packs I bought were all slightly larger than this.
Washing up test
These spoons are always washed up by hand and still look really good colour wise. As I said before they have mainly been used for yogurts so haven't been in contact with colour staining foods like tomato.
Price and availability
These spoons are Boots own so only available from them, I think I paid about £2 for my box of 4.
Would I recommend?
Yes, these spoons have proved to be good quality and I'm pleased with how long they have lasted.
Summary: A good quality baby weaning spoon
