    All parents want to see their baby grow and learn, but how do you know when your little one is ready for the next step? Babies grow and develop at their own pace, but there are a few indicators that will let you know when your little one is ready to try something new. As your baby grows, keep an eye out for these signs your child is ready for spoon feeding.

    They’ve Mastered the Bottle

    With any skill, you have to master the basics before moving on to something new. Babies first learn to breastfeed or drink from a bottle before moving on to spoon feeding. If your little one has become a bottle-feeding pro, it might be time to take the next step with spoon-fed purees and other soft foods. Remember not to pressure your baby or make a total transition right away. Take it slow and give your little one time to learn this new eating skill at their own pace.

    They Watch You Eat

    Babies are incredibly curious, and they learn a lot from observing others. If your child watches with interest as you or other family members use utensils, it might be a sign that they’re ready to try it for themselves. Want a way to be sure? Offer your baby a clean, soft spoon during mealtimes and see what they do. If your little one starts experimenting with food or otherwise mimicking you, they’re probably ready to try spoon feeding.

    They Start Bringing Objects to Their Mouths

    Like we said, babies love to mimic their parents and other family members. When it comes to eating, your little one might try to mimic you by picking up objects and bringing them to their mouth. While grabbing things and putting them in or near the mouth is a stress-inducing habit in a baby, it can also be a sign that your child is ready to try using utensils.

    Tips for Starting Spoon Feeding

    Are you picking up on signs your child is ready for spoon feeding? Here are a few tips to help you and baby get started. First and foremost, make sure your baby has a stable place to sit. You want a supportive seat in which your child won’t bounce or lean while they eat. Another important tip is to start with thin, smooth, and basic foods. Single-ingredient purees are the perfect place to start. Once your baby gets used to the basics, you can gradually add slightly different textures and flavors.

    At Avanchy, we want all families to have safe and sustainable dishware for their little ones. Our baby utensils set is clean, durable, and perfect for little mouths. Help your baby grow and develop their eating skills with spoons, forks, and more from Avanchy.
