Why Baby Weaning Sets Matter

Baby weaning sets play a pivotal role in your child's weaning journey, especially if you're adopting the baby-led weaning approach. These sets provide you with all the essentials you need to start this exciting phase:

Weaning Spoons

Your weaning set should include specially designed spoons that are gentle on your baby's delicate gums. They should be lightweight and easy for your baby to hold. Look for spoons made from BPA-free plastic or silicone, ensuring safety for your little one. Whether you're practising spoon-fed weaning or baby-led weaning, these spoons are ideal.

Bowls and Plates

Babies need a designated place to enjoy their meals. The best baby bowls and plates come with non-slip suction features, keeping the dinnerware securely in place and preventing spills on the floor.

Sippy Cup

Transitioning your baby from a bottle is essential for their dental health. Some weaning sets include cups or beakers with excellent grip and easy-hold handles, facilitating this transition seamlessly.

Additionally, to cope with the inevitable mess that accompanies mealtimes, consider investing in a floor splash mat.

Ikea, Antilop

The most important feature of a high chair - easy to clean. When you're weaning your baby, you will find food in every nook and cranny of the high chair. Having a chair that doesn't allow for places to hide is therefore essential!

The Antilop high chair may seem like the most basic looking chair out there but from a practical point of view it's the perfect budget option that is super easy to clean down. Plus, it comes with a newborn insert so if you have a baby who's on the smaller side they can be supported with the insert meaning more comfort for them!

Chomp EveryKid Coverall Bib

Your MUST-HAVE weaning essential! Minimise mess and maximise fun with our multi-use, award-winning baby & toddler coverall.  The Chomp award-winning, EveryKid Bib has been thoughtfully designed to make weaning adventures more enjoyable for both parents and babies. Unlike traditional bibs, it boasts a unique built-in, waterproof chest-level pocket that minimizes the need for additional silicone scoop bibs. This signature design not only maximizes comfort for your little one but also reduces the number of items to clean up after meals. The coverall bib also comes with a second bottom level pocket as well, perfect for catching those falling crumbs during mealtimes. When dinner is done, both pockets can be folded flat for easy cleaning and even used for messy play activities. Our adjustable neckline with snap buttons replace the conventional velcro closures, ensuring the bib grows with your child. The soft and elasticated wrists provide additional comfort and flexibility, accommodating your inspiring little eater from 6 to 36 months and beyond. Chomp's commitment to sustainability is evident in our use of off-cut materials for the matching carry case, reducing wastage and supporting eco-friendly practices

Mama Shack Splash Mat

Let your little one get messy in style with one of these gorgeous splash mats. Weaning is really fun but it's also super messy (which is part of the fun!).

You won't be able to avoid food going all over your baby but you can at least save your floor from total anhiliation. The Mama Shack splash mat is your go to mat for weaning. Not only will it save your floor, it also looks nice so you can avoid having the equivalent of a tarpauline on the floor (which is likely to clash with your interiors!).

You can also use the mat for messy play - painting, drawing, playdough... unless you want a multi coloured table you'll need a splash mat and Mama Shack is our top recommendation. Hit the button below to get yours today.
