We are one of those hippie families that do "baby-led weaning". For those who don't know what that means, we skipped the purees and rice cereal and went straight to allowing our son to try feeding himself bits of "real" food at 6 months old.
Although we never used traditional baby food, we did give my son natural applesauce and full-fat unsweetened yogurt. Instead of spooning it into his mouth, we "loaded" the spoon for him and handed it to him so he could learn to feed himself.
These spoons are great for even a young baby to use for self-feeding. They are lightweight enough that our son could handle them even at 7 months old. They have a long handle, which is good for a baby that doesn't have pincer grasp yet and still grips anything in his fist. And the bowls are small and relatively deep compared to other baby spoons, so the food doesn't spill out too easily despite being maneuvered by my little one who still flails a bit.
