Freddie puts the Milkymouth Baby Weaning Set to the Test! – Weaning has to be the messiest part of having a baby but a lot of fun.
Baby Led Weaning
Freddie is our first baby to try Baby Led Weaning as it wasn’t something I’d heard of with either Isabelle or Ryan. Essentially we started our weaning journey with cooked vegetable sticks and soft fruits which we just put onto his tray without a bowl or plate, but as time went on he was trying to reach for the bowl or plate that these were on so we needed to choose bowls and plates that would withstand being thrown on the floor which is where most things end up.
Milkymouth Weaning Set
The Milkymouth Weaning Set consists of:
- 2 Silicone bibs
- 1 Suction bowl
- 1 Food/fruit pacifier
- 1 Squeeze Feeding Bottle
- 1 Teething Toy
Both of the silicone bibs have a collection pocket which are the best for a weaning baby who is just learning to grasp and hold food. They do up with a button like fastening and is adjustable as your baby grows.
I love these bibs as they’re super soft and flexible to fit properly to protect your baby clothes. They also roll up which is handy for popping in your changing bag.
The suction bowl is the perfect portion sized bowl for babies and sticks to your baby’s highchair or table.
The suction on the bowl is a bit hit and miss, but Freddie seems to have ridiculous super strength. The bowl ends up on the floor a lot so its good that its made from silicone so doesn’t break.
When we first started Baby Led Weaning Freddie struggled with some foods, and it’s quite scary when your baby starts gagging. The Fruit Pacifier is a little gadget that looks like a dummy with a hollow teat and tiny holes. You open it up, put a piece of fruit inside and your baby can suck and chew the fruit through the teat.
I’ve had one similar to this but it was a mesh type end and it got really grubby quickly, but as this one is silicone it was easy to clean so would last much longer.
Squeeze Feeding Bottle
If using purees this Squeeze Feeding Bottle is perfect for out and about. Load up the bottle and squeeze a bit onto the spoon end for easy, mess free feeding.
We’re not really doing pureed food but Freddie loves yoghurt and had a lot of fun feeding himself with this. It was easy to use and clean which is always a bonus.
Although this is a Teething Toy it’s shaped like a spoon albeit in a grape kind of way. Freddie almost has a mouth full of teeth and he’s coped with this by using teethers. This one is great for putting into the back of his mouth to help with the back ones that, and being able to use it as a fun spoon is just a bonus!
The Milkymouth Baby Weaning Set is priced at £22.95 and can be bought from Amazon. It has everything you need whether you’re starting with purees or Baby Led Weaning.
My first thought was that the set had everything that I needed for Freddie and that it would withstand the many times that it would end up on the floor. My favourite part of the set is the bibs. They cover him well and as they’re super soft and flexible they sit nicely, so he hasn’t tried to pull them off at all. they have also remained stain free even up against the likes of spaghetti Bolognese.
The Milkymouth Baby Weaning Set gets a big thumbs up from this little guy and his Mummy!
