With Dot approaching 6 months old we have started thinking about weaning. When she was still breastfed I was advised to try weaning her to see if that would help with her fussiness. We tried some baby porridge and she gobbled it down. I assumed from this that she was ready for weaning so went out and bought every Ella’s Kitchen pouch available and packs of baby spoons. As if they knew I then received an email from Fisher Price offering us products from their new feeding range to review.
We received the Fisher Price Heat Sensitive Bowls, Fisher Price Learn to Scoop Spoons and Fisher Price Baby’s First Sippy Cup. All of the products in the feeding range are BPA free, dishwasher safe and designed with baby in mind. All products are suitable from 4 months and are available exclusively in Boots stores and online.
The Fisher Price Heat Sensitive Bowls are made from a special colour changing material so that the can visually alert you if the food is too hot to feed to the baby. They come in a pack of three for £9.99. They have a rubberized rim for easy an easy grip.
The Fisher Price Baby’s First Sippy Cup is £4.99 and has a soft spout which makes it feel like a bottle teat. It is centralised like a bottle so helps to make the transition from bottle to cup a lot easier and with the rotating valve Dot can get every sip from her cup however she holds it. Thankfully it’s also leak free so when the inevitable happened and she threw it across the room nothing spilt! The handles make it easy for her to hold and she loves having a good chomp on the spout.
The Fisher Price Learn to Scoop spoons are available in a pack of 4 for £4.99 and are great for first foods due to their soft wavy surface that flattens out inside their mouths. This means that they are gentle on gums whilst getting the food into the mouth and not making a massive amount of mess. We have used these once and I loved how it didn’t matter what way up they went and didn’t smear food all over her face.
Dot decided that food was for losers shortly after the first bowl of porridge so we put weaning to one side but I know I will reach for these over the other spoons that we have. When she starts to use cutlery herself they will be great because the food won’t fall off and it has a nice soft grip handle.
Overall the Fisher Price feeding range is a fab addition to the weaning market offering brightly coloured, usable products to suit every baby entering the weaning stage.
