Do you chuck it on the tray and call it a day when it’s time for baby’s first bites of real food? Certainly not! Here are five reasons for using a baby bowl set benefits your child.
1) All about the Quantities
When parents start to wean their baby off of breastfeeding, one common mistake they make is portion size. They might eyeball how much food there is in front of them and offer too many tempting flavours for the little one’s palette rather than cut back slightly so that he or she has an appetite at all before eating something new! Families who practice this technique report success rates higher with getting babies through solids faster because it removes some anxiety from being Able.
So, let’s be honest: infant portion sizes are far less than you might expect.
A divided baby plate or bowl is a great way to keep quantities under control. Don’t forget that your kid will acquire the majority of his or her nourishment from breast milk or infant formula until he or she reaches the age of one. The solid meals we offer provide some nutrients, but they also allow the baby to experiment with various tastes and textures, as well as play and explore with this strange new thing called food.
The silicone baby bowl from My Luxeve is the practice’s most favoured baby bowl. It contains two 2-oz portion sections and one 4-oz portion compartment in the shape of a cheerful smile. For newborns just starting solid food, you might only fill each section of the plate 1/4 or 1/2 full, but I appreciate the visual reminder that less is more here, and little quantities are more appropriate for babies and their tiny tummies.
2) The spice of life is a variety
Another advantage of using a divided silicon baby bowl or plate is that it serves as a visual reminder to the baby that he or she should be eating a variety of foods. We know that babies who are exposed to more tastes, foods, and flavours between the ages of 6 and 18 months have a better chance of being eager eaters and have a lower risk of picky eating later in life. So, what’s the most effective approach to increase these exposures?
At least three different foods should be introduced to your kid at each of his or her meals. Now, they don’t have to be completely different things; repurposing foods responsibly or using leftovers are both excellent options.
A divided plate with three separate parts, on the other hand, reminds you that baby needs to see a variety of meals and helps you get into the habit of doing so at each meal.
3.) Plates and Bowls Help to Keep Things Clean
You might believe that adding a baby bowl or plate to the mix will result in extra dishes. Yes, you’ll have to do one (or two) more dishes. However, I would say that bringing a baby plate or bowl to the table helps to reduce the amount of mess!
Giving your baby food from a bowl or plate may be more manageable, but it’s important to consider messy breastfeeding. When you feed them by hand and let them swipe at their meal with chopsticks (or any other utensil), most of the mess happens in front of us because we’re trying so hard for perfect form while they just want something that tastes good! A divided plate makes eating easier on both parties- no need to go fishing around under furniture looking blindly on either side before finding what was left behind after all this time.
4.) Improvement of motor skills
Baby bowls and plates can aid in the development of eating-related motor skills. With the soft barrier of a silicon bowl or plate border, a baby can begin raking food and even get some of it into her mouth!
5.) Having Fun with Food
My Luxeve is one of the favourite brands in the newborn and kid feeding sector because they not only make feeding simple, but they also make it fun… However, it also makes mealtime enjoyable!
Feeding your infant should be enjoyable, and they offer just that with their cheerful face design. The 4 oz piece of the tiny mat is designed like a real smile and sits beneath the two 2-oz “eye” parts. An added benefit when it comes to making eating fun is the range of colours that will attract any baby’s eye and brighten up mealtime for the whole family.
Parenting is an emotional rollercoaster. You have so much to manage, and you only get 24 hours in a day! This means that if you want your baby fed appropriately then the last thing on their minds should be hot pans or knives – which makes our toddler product range perfect for those looking out after them while juggling other tasks at home too- because it includes everything they’ll need without any added hassle.
Our silicone baby bowl set was created to help young children learn to feed themselves. It also saves you the trouble of cleaning up after each feed.
