Tommee Tippee Heat Sensor Weaning Spoons
Advantages: Soft and heat sensitive
Just when you've got the little baby bit sussed.... you've managed to formulate some kind of rountine that kind of works and have finally got your evenings back then wham the next tricky bit comes along and completely floors you again. I'm talking about weaning, and the smooth transition onto a solid diet.
When my oldest approached 6 months, I began reading every book I could get my hands on to try and get a grasp of what was ahead of me. I felt as though I was completely clueless and desperately wanted to introduce my precious little bundle to the right foods so she would grow to have a healthy and varied diet.
I pureed enough food to sink a ship and my freezer was packed full of ice cube portions of pureed friut and veg... although most did seem to be orange. I also made a trip to my local Boots to stock up on some bowls and weaning spoons.
I was drawn to these Tommee Tippee Spoons mainly because they had a heat sensor warning system. Basically if these spoons were put into food that is too hot for baby, then they will change colour. This concept reallt appealed, as because like most new first time mum's I lacked in confidence and anything that helped safetywise completely won me over.
A pack of 6 of these spoons will cost you about £4.49 which is quite expensive compared to other brands but I think they are worth the extra, just for peice of mind.
The spoons are very soft and bendy and this is great in those first few weeks for your baby as he is learning the ropes regarding eating. If can imagine having nothing other than milk in your mouth for months on end... you wouldn't want a hard spoon in your mouth, it just wouldn't be pleasant.
My baby ate her first meals of slop from these spoons and I have continue to buy them ever since. They are also great for when your baby is a little older and gaining independance and wanting to feed themselves. I also still use the for my toddler for those dinky yoghurts she loves, she just seems to manage them better than a full sized teaspoon.
So to sum up I think these are a great weaning spoon and the added safety feature makes them worth the extra pennies
Summary: A great spoon for weaning
