Today I’m talking spoons and sippy cups. I think we can all agree that when we were pregnant that the research of car seats, cribs, and rock n’ plays far superseded the research of spoons and sippy cups we might like. Well, for me anyway. By the time I was done figuring out all the big stuff, I hadn’t even given two thoughts of what kind of spoons I might like when Mykenzi started solids or what kind of sippy cup she may prefer. I just used whatever I had gotten through baby showers whether or not I liked them. Some were decent while others sit in a drawer or stay in the cabinet.
I’ll get to the Sippy Cup in a minute, but can I just tell you how obsessed I am with these spoons?
First, as advertised they have a little notch on the bottom of the spoon so while you are heating your baby’s food you can set it on the table or counter and the spoon portion does not touch the surface keeping it germ free and your counter baby puree free. This was a big win for me because even 3 months into the Solid Food game I have yet to master heating times so the spoon always ended up in my mouth while I waited for the food to get to the right temperature. Unfortunately, these spoons don’t have a heat indicator where the tip of the spoon changes color when the food is too hot, but I taste Mykenzi’s food before I feed her anyway so it’s a very minor inconvenience for me.
Also, it’s light enough for Mykenzi to grab and use herself unlike the spoons with the metal handles that are a little heavy. She loves to try to feed herself and these spoons make it so much easier for her to do that. The lightness of the spoons also allow me to set the spoon in the bowl and not have to worry about it flipping backwards and flinging pureed sweet potatoes all over my dining room.
The spatula end of the spoon is what really fueled my obsession. Unlike regular spoons, the spoon end is square shaped making it super easy to clean the excess food around your baby’s mouth. It’s really made clean up a breeze. Never thought I’d contribute a cleaner dining experience to a spoon but it’s true! Even my husband was raving about these spoons and how much easier they made feeding time. Let’s be real ladies, what man notices a change in anything? Am I right? Out of the three of us, I think he enjoyed the spoons the most. (Don’t tell him I told you that.) He even noticed after a carrot dinner, the spoon washed clean instead of leaving stains which is something we can’t say for any other baby spoon we own.
Nuk was also nice enough to send me their Woodlands Learner Cup which is great because we are in sippy cup training over here. The Woodlands Learner Cup is pretty awesome because it has handles and a soft silicone spout which is great when transitioning from a bottle.
It’s spill proof spout is a real win for me. I wasn’t expecting it to be totally spill proof since it has a silicone spout but it proved me wrong. Mykenzi shook that cup all over the place and my dining room was juice free. We are still working on our tipping skill to get juice out. She’s a work in progress.
Both of these items are BPA Free and dishwasher safe which are great! Right now, Nuk has a coupon for $1 off their tableware products. You can find Nuk’s Rest Easy Spoons and Woodlands Learner Cup at Walmart for purchase.
