It only feels like yesterday your little one was having her first newborn feed, and now she is ready to start on solids. It’s an exciting time - and a major milestone in your little one’s life – although you’ll definitely be going through more bibs than usual over the next few months. However you're choosing to wean your baby, make the process as smooth (and as mess-free) as possible with these brilliant weaning buys:
Say goodbye to your tot’s dinner hitting the floor with this clever little bowl. Unlike others on the market, the suction doesn’t weaken over time. The all natural bamboo bowls come in a number of bright colours, and are lovely and easy to clean.
Teeny cups designed to be the right size for their little hands and mouths to minimise spillage. The brightly-coloured cups also encourage little ones to sip their drink and move away from the sucking motion. They can also be filled with snacks, which allows you to control portion size - win-win!
A cute little bib that comes in a number of cute colours, any dropped food is caught in the bib’s ‘crumb catcher’. The fabric part of the bib neatly rolls down and secures closed – useful on days out for containing mess and cutlery until you get home.
This mat gives excellent coverage, as it's a good size and comes in a number of cute animal prints. That said, it’s definitely better for older children as it's easy to pull off the table, taking the food and bowl with it!
This clever cup helps your baby progress from teat to sippy cup effectively. It’s bright enough to get your tot’s attention, it really is spill free and it’s super easy to clean.
This simple little device holds food in a mesh bag, which your baby then sucks on. It’s great for mums who are baby-led weaning, but worry about their baby choking on finger food in the early days. That said, it can be a bit difficult to clean.
This is ideal for snacks and feeding small chunks – little ones can get their hands through the lid to grab food easily and the rest doesn’t spill out, even when tipped upside down.
This spoon is designed to be soft on baby gums and easy for your little one to hold, plus it’s just the right length to reach the bottom of a food jar, whilst being bright enough to keep your baby’s attention.

This clever product is fuss-free, easy to use and does its job quickly and effectively. Being able to choose the consistency of the puree to match your child’s weaning stage really is a godsend, and takes the worry out of weaning.
