The lovely people at Vital Baby sent us some Stage 1 weaning spoons to test out now that Spike is well and truly into the whole weaning malarkey. They are available in three different colours (pink, blue and orange) all bright and appealing to little people.
As stated in the product description they have a soft-tip which is very gentle on sensitive lips and gums which is essential in the early stages of weaning due to chomping on them and clamping mouths shut around the head of the spoon. They are a good size for the amount of food that Spike eats in each mouthful. I have found with competing brands that the head can be quite large and easy for me to overload, making Spike splutter on the sheer amount of food in his mouth. So far we haven’t had any such incident with a Vital spoon.
The handle is quite slim and I did find it quite fiddly especially if any food got onto it as it then became very slippery. They are quite small spoons for me to use but I do see how this would be a benefit to him when he learns to feed himself.
The only problem that I found was that the rounded end of the spoon meant that I couldn’t fit them into the cutlery basket of the dishwasher but Vital Baby do advise that they are only to be washed on the top rack. I read that after I had already put them through a cycle so did find that they had faded a little bit in the wash but that is totally my fault!
They retail at only £2.99 and Vital Baby have some amazing offers on their website from bundles to free delivery and free gifts.
Overall a good product that I will be saving for when Spike becomes a little bit more independent with his feeding as they are the perfect size and shape for tiny hands!
