Top 4 Baby led weaning essentials

I knew my twins were ready to try some real food when both of them sprouted two teeth, started sitting without support and never let go of an opportunity of grabbing some finger food. I am a big supporter of baby led weaning. Baby led weaning is a great way of introducing your baby to the amazing world of food, color, taste, smell and textures. It will engage your little one and make them independent when it comes to making choices.

If you are a first-time parent and do not know which products to buy for starting the journey of weaning. We have summed up the top 4. You don’t need to spend thousand of rupees to unravel the mysteries of baby led weaning. These are some tried and tested products available on the Indian online websites.

Baby led weaning essentials

1.Fisher-Price Quick N Go Booster seat

Definitely one of the best products, I have ever bought! We opted for a booster seat instead of high chair because it can be attached to the dining chairs or kept on the floor. And since most of the restaurants don’t have a high chair we can carry it when we eat out. It makes our life so much easier! The best part is the minimalistic and productive design, which is easy to clean after every meal. It is highly recommended because babies learn to eat while sitting with family instead of running around the house.

2.Plastic bib

These bibs work wonders when your baby is exploring the world of food. It has loops at the back instead of velcro so your baby cannot pull it off. It also has a pouch to collect all the food trickling down, which helps in controlling the mess and keeping the clothes clean. They come in a variety of colors and cartoon characters.

3.Fisher-Price feeding set

When you follow baby led weaning your child will want to do exactly what you do, which mean they will want their own plates, bowls, and cutlery! Fisher price feeding set consists of a suction bowl, which sticks to the tray and doesn’t topple over when your baby is refining on his/her skills at the table. It also consists of a spoon and fork, which is slightly bent from one side to assist your baby with feeding himself well. It’s definitely worth it!

4.Sippy cups/ Glasses

Finding the right sippy cup might just be one of the hardest things to buy when it comes to shopping for children. The vast variety in the market makes it even more difficult. There are so many kinds with different colors, with straw, with spouts etc. After doing an insane amount of research online, I decided to get the sippy cups with straws when my girls were 10 months old. Babies have to be taught and demonstrated how to drink from a cup, straw or spout. If your baby is not able to drink out of it, give it a little time. I am sure they will catch up. Make sure the sip cup has a spill proof valve which prevents water from leaking and will only come out when the baby sucks the straw or spout.

Invest in just these 4 products and your baby is ready to start exploring some delicious veggies and fruits. Cheers!

Happy baby led weaning!
