ADVANTAGES OF USING A BABY FEEDER
When starting baby led weaning or introducing lumpier foods at 6 months for spoon fed weaning a lot of parents worry about choking. With a mesh feeder, you can get the thicker textures and juices from foods without having to worry about a stray chuck being swallowed.
INTRODUCE NEW FOODS:
Spoon weaning babies take longer to adjust to solid foods, and since a baby feeder essentially purees most foods, it let them try them earlier at an early age. Foods such as melon are too water to puree so a baby feeder can help baby enjoy the juices without eating large lumps.
HELPS WITH TEETHING:
A baby feeder can help to soothe sore gums when teething. You can use frozen foods to provide some cool relief whilst snacking. The texture of the feeders is great for biting, chewing and relieving the irritation of the teeth coming through.
TEACHES INDEPENDENT EATING:
Spoon fed babies can benefit from the feeder by holding the feeder themselves and having more control over eating. This often takes the pressure off parents, especially if a baby is strong-willed and fussy.
If you are baby led weaning, a baby feeder is handy when they are younger. Use a feeder with slippery food such as banana or small food which they can easily grip such as peas.
