Child-Sized: Spoons

I had a hard time finding small spoons for Zach that were made out of metal.  Apparently, most manufacturers believe that a baby will hurt himself if they don’t coat the spoon in soft plastic.  For a while we used the Nuk spoons because at least they were a good size and the handle was metal.  Then, I found these spoons on Amazon.  They are perfect for little mouths and little hands, and yet they are the real thing, made of stainless steel with a nice weight and finish.  Zach didn’t even blink when I changed from the Nuk spoons to these!

If you’re preparing to introduce solids to your little one, I really recommend these spoons (they also make forks and knives, which I will test out in a few months).

  1. I’m a young mum (I’m 23 and my baby girl is 7 months old) while I was pregnant I read every book I could find (seriously I must have read at least 30) and one of the things that freak me out was the “eating utensils” I should use to help her learn “the right way to eat”, there are way too many options.

    Meal time is sacred in our house (gourmet and/or foreign meals once a week -often Sunday- is mandatory), since I was around 6 mum taught me to use a salad fork, a meat fork, a dessert fork and every other cutlery that is out there cause God forbid I wasn’t raised with “proper eating utensil etiquette” (granny is really traditional about these and she would accept no less from her grandkids so mum obliged). As a result of my upbringing I will never understand those who use “plastic” (I don’t even use plastic for a picnic!).

    My boyfriend and I debated long and hard, he was raised with plastic and got really annoyed by my “fancy, whiny arguments” (his words) in the end we compromised in using a traditional silver baby spoon.

    Personally I think that’s the best option or at least something similar.

    Sorry about my poor writing, english it’s not my native language.

  2. I just ordered these for my twin boys who are beginning to eat solids. We LOVE this spoon! Thank you for your post about where to purchase this spoon!!

I'd love to know what YOU think!
