Most babies are ready to start solids between 4 and 6 months, however as parents, only you know your baby’s readiness and as you are preparing for this amazing milestone, I thought I would share with you the Top 5 Must-Haves for Starting Solids!

#1 For meal preparing

To help with baby’s growth and development, we have to ensure the food that we give is nutritious and suitable for our baby to consume. In order to prep your own fresh baby food at home, you will need a food processor. This Beaba Babycook Solo has 4-in-1 functions – cooks, blends, defrosts and reheats and it allows the preservation of the essentials vitamins needed for your baby’s growth with its steam-cooking system. It will save you a lot of time as it only takes 15 minutes to cook! You can get one here on Babydash.

#2 For a comfortable mealtime

Your baby starting solids also means it is time to welcome him/her to join the rest of the family at the dinner table. To ensure your little one is comfortable and secure during mealtime, a high chair is needed. Take this one from Evenflo, it is a 3-in-1 convertible high chair for babies from 6-36 months. It is easy to use and clean as the seat pad is washable! Get one from Babydash by clicking here.

#3 For when it gets messy

When your little one is transitioning into solid food, mealtime can get a lot messier. And a waterproof silicone bib will be a better choice at this point of time to help cover your baby’s beautiful tops from food stains. The silicone bib is BPA free, stain resistant as well as dishwasher safe. To purchase one from Babydash, just click here.

#4 For feeding

We know how our little one likes to throw things around, so it is best to give them dishes and utensils that are durable. This plate from Skip Hop is made of durable melamine and dishwasher safe. It is lightweight so it is easy for your little one to hold. You can get one on Babydash, just click here.

To encourage your little one to feed themselves, a safe pair of cutlery is essential in order to make sure a safe mealtime. Cutlery with ergonomic shape makes it easy for infants to grasp them. And parents must ensure the cutlery has rounded edges so it is safe for your baby’s gums. Get this pair from Beaba on Babydash, just by clicking here.

#5 For easy cleaning

If your little one is at the fun stage of tossing things around during mealtime, then you might want to consider getting a placemat to help you containing the mess. Due to its suction on the silicone mat, your little one will not be able to pull the plate/bowl off. When mealtime is over, you can release the suction by peeling off from the corners and the mess made can also easily be cleaned! Purchase one here on Babydash.

There you have it, parents! I wish this will somehow help you to prepare your baby’s journey starting solids. Also parents, come participate in our Mommy’s Yummy Recipe Contest and stand a chance to win Chomel hamper worth RM52. Click here for more information. Good luck!
