As you know we’re in full swing with weaning Jack now. Having 4 children I like to think I’m quite a pro at the weaning stage now and I know what works best (to a certain extent anyway, kids surprise you all the time no matter how many you have) with each child I have always used Tommee Tippee products because I like the price, the ease of them and they’re always thinking of new products to help us parents.
With weaning they have a great range of products. We were recently sent some to test out and this is what we thought 🙂
We were sent
- Tommee Tippee first cup from the basics range
- Tommee Tippee 3 feeding bowls also from the basics range
- Tommee Tippee 4 pop up pots
- Tommee Tippee set of spoons
The cup, spoons and bowls we have used on a daily basis and love! They’re easy to use, simple to clean and are lovely and bright.
The pop up pots are something I’ve never used before and are brilliant! We occasionally use pouches of food but mainly we feed Jack on whatever we’re eating. But at this stage it is all trial and error to see what he likes. When we find something that he loves, I like to put some in the freezer for another day or for lunches or if we want something (takeaway) that he can’t eat. That’s where these pots come in. They’re the perfect size for a good portion so he gets the right amount. You pop them in the freezer/fridge and then the food just easily pops out (due to the silicone bottom) when needed, ready to heat.
I am loving weaning with Jack and honestly sometimes whilst out it is easier. When you solely bottle feed you can guarantee (no matter how many times you do it) that they will want a bottle as soon as you start eating but it’s not an issue when weaning because you can just give them some food to munch while you eat.
We’re still doing the baby led/spoon fed weaning but as he’s getting older it’s becoming more just baby led. We’ve let him try almost everything we have and we’ve not found much he doesn’t like, which is excellent.
He’s teething a bit at the moment so he hasn’t been as eager as usual but hopefully they pop out soon and we can try even more foods 🙂
*We were sent a few items to review but all words and opinions are my own and honest.
