CHOOSING THE RIGHT BABY SPOON

Three things to consider:

1) Size and depth

The ideal spoon should be slightly narrower than the baby’s mouth. Young babies prefer shallow spoons, as they still can’t use their lips to empty the spoon. Older babies prefer deeper spoons, as they contain more food. To first introduce solids like baby cereals and pureed foods, choose a shallow spoon.

2) Plastic or metal

Plastic or silicone spoons are soft, flexible and gentler on the gums than metal spoons. A metal spoon can be harsh or cold, and can inflict more damage if the baby hurts herself.

3) Rigid or flexible

Babies can better gauge the position of the spoon if it’s rigid. Try to bend the spoon to test its rigidity. The tip should not move much with respect to the handle.
