In just a couple of months Freddie will be 6 months old and our weaning journey will be about to begin. It’s been a long time since I weaned his older brother and of course, I’ve forgotten pretty much everything. Thankfully, this week 7th-13th May, is National Weaning Week so it’s the perfect opportunity to look ahead at products that are designed to help us parents through the mud of weaning and there’s also the opportunity for you to win a weaning bundle worth over £80.
Introducing babies to food can be very stressful. Do you try baby led weaning or perhaps spoon feeding and purees are more your bag? It can also be quite messy as babies learn about food and you introduce them to new tastes, flavours and textures. Whichever method you try, there’s a range of brilliant products to help out. Don’t forget to scroll down to enter the giveaway!
Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Set
The Tidy Tot Bib and Tray Kit is THE weaning essential that all parents need to make mealtimes a little less messy, but just as enjoyable for little ones. This award-winning kit cleverly eliminates the gap between baby and highchair, keeping food in easy reach for little fingers whilst preventing it from falling into baby’s lap or on to your floor. Perfect for feeding finger foods and an absolute must have for when baby starts demanding the spoon! Say hello to stress-free weaning and goodbye to stained clothes, endless washing and constant cleaning!
The fully waterproof, coverall bib is made from a beautifully soft machine-washable fabric and is designed with an adjustable neck fastening to allow for a snug and comfortable fit for babies aged 6 months to 2 years.
The tray is made from food-safe material and is easy to wipe-clean. The fresh green colour provides an essential contrast between baby’s food and their eating surface, supporting vital hand-eye coordination. The Tidy Tot Bib & Tray also comes with a stylish travel bag and folds down to a dinner plate size, making it fully portable for meals out and on the go!
When it comes to the drinking side of weaning, there are a multitude of reasons why open-cup sipping is the healthiest option, and oral health is right at the top of the list.
One of the areas that can play a part in good oral health from the start is not just what children eat and drink but how they eat and drink. And when it comes to choosing a cup, dentists and orthodontists recommend for good oral health babies and young children should use open cups from an early an age as possible.
Leading dentists and orthodontists say the best sippy cup is a cup that truly teaches sipping. And that’s not a sippy cup at all! The best cup for babies and toddlers is an open cup. And key for great success for weaning babies and toddlers – the cup needs to be the right size for the user! So Babycup was born. We made these cute little cups that look good and do good. Perfectly designed for little hands and mouths and with the thumbs up from health visitors, dental professionals and midwives. Making mealtime sipping the happy norm, Babycup First Cups are the mini open cup solution for babies and toddlers.
