6 Must-Have Baby Self-Feeding Products

Has your baby started solids yet? Did you know, there are two approaches to weaning, baby led and the traditional. The traditional weaning is when you start feeding your little one solids. You first start with smooth purée and then gradually shift to mashed and chopped foods, then finger foods and finally small bites. Baby led weaning on the other hand is the method where babies are encouraged to explore and self feed themselves. Kids can explore foods at their own pace. In both the approaches, we need feeding products nonetheless. 

You may wonder, why specifically feeding products when we are feeding the little ones? Feeding products not only include utensils for babies but also furniture like high chairs, bibs, food containers, etc. The feeding tools help in building independence in our little ones. Little ones don’t tend to sit in one place and therefore there might be chances of getting hurt with the normal cutlery that we use. The feeding products are made specifically for little ones with soft and kid friendly materials and are perfectly sized for little ones to hold and self-feed. And it is always a good idea if you want to alternate between traditional and self-feeding methods.

When to start solids? It is usually recommended to start solids at around 6 months, in the form of purée, then moving on to permitted, bite sized, finger foods. But, always consult your pediatrician when starting or have any queries. 

Here are the top 6 must-have feeding products for your little ones:

High Chairs and AccessoriesHigh Chairs and accessories: 

High chairs encourage the baby to sit comfortably and independently in an upright position allowing them to focus on what’s in front of them - food! Plus, high chairs are easy to clean, ensure safety and security, and make feeding easier for the parent too. To get you started you can explore some of the best as under: 

  • Beaba’s Up and Down High chair  6 height positions, which gives parents the possibility to use at any table, counter, bar and island. It is designed and manufactured in France.

Plates, Bowls, and UtensilsPlates, Bowls, and Utensils: 

As mentioned above, utensils for babies are designed in a unique way to promote their growth. They are designed in a way that makes them child-friendly, easy to hold, soft and smooth in texture, with suction, etc. Here are a few of our favourite utensils for little ones:

  • Ez Pz First Foods Set  includes the tiny cup, tiny spoon, and tiny bowl. They are dishwasher and microwave safe. The tiny cup helps the baby transition from bottle to open cup. The tiny bowl provides a stable base for the baby to build fine motor skills. Lightweight and easy to carry for dinners when traveling.

  • Beaba Silicone Meal Set includes a plate, a bowl with suction pad, a cup and a silicone spoon. The ergonomic design cup and spoon are made to fit perfectly in little hands. The plate and bowl are featured with a suction bottom that lets the baby enjoy food without any mess and spills. Made from superior quality silicone material, this tableware set is sturdy, safe and hygienic to use.

  • NumNum Pre-Spoon Gootensils  Designed for use with purees and other food blends, a NumNum GOOtensil™ is a pre-spoon that makes self-feeding easier for little ones just starting utensils. Unlike a spoon, the head is flat, so there's no scooping, no balancing, and no wrong way to hold it!


During feeding sessions, bibs can add a layer of protection to your baby’s clothes and sop up spit-ups. Without the bib, you would have to wipe down everything and the baby will require a change of clothes after every messy mealtime!. Some bibs also have a little pocket at the bottom to avoid mess. The pocket not only holds solid food but also liquid.


Cups also help in building independence. Drinking from a cup is very important. Wonder how? cup drinking teaches babies how to take in and swallow small amounts of liquid, an important skill for feeding and speech development! You can also use a straw training system for little ones to develop lip rounding and speech development. Some best cup options are, Ez Pz Mini cup+ Straw training system comes in numerous colours, easy to hold and sturdy, You can also check Beaba Silicone anti slip cup and Ez Pz Mini cup too.

Food containers for baby foodFood Containers:

Food containers are equally important since sometimes we need to store our little ones’ food while traveling or while we leave them with a sitter or a family member to keep their food fresh and also, these containers help in giving the right proportion of food to them. There are different types of container for all your needs like, the Stacked Formula Milk Container for correct doses of the formula or can also be used as a snack container, the Babysqueez and Squuez Portion Set perfect for traveling and easy to clean. 

Food processors for baby foodFood Processors:

Food Processors are extremely helpful when preparing little ones’ meals. They’re hassle free and save time. You can just add the ingredients and let the processors do their job, be it steaming veggies or blending it into a puree. Beaba’s Babycook can save the day!
