I was pleased with the size of the spoons and their overall design. However, after just a few weeks of use, one of my spoons broke when my 7-month old son bit it! He only has 2 teeth and he's not very strong. This was very disappointing!
Liked the concept and my 6-month-old does great getting the food into his mouth on his own with these. It was a little disturbing though to see that after one or two uses the blue spoon completely discolored and turned light green.
Edited - adding a month later that the orange spoon is now unusable because the material has torn at the end. I'm not sure whether I want to repurchase these knowing the new ones will most likely fall apart too.
My baby really enjoys chewing on these spoons. He can use them pretty well. they're easy to hold onto and hold enough food for him to get it in his mouth. He six months old by the way. The package does warn that food causes discoloration. One serving of sweet potatoes discolored ours. The reason I gave these three stars is because they have tiny little holes that the food gets stuck in and even soaking it does not get it out. I have to squeeze them like a zit to get the food out and some still stays in. I then have to pick it out with a toothpick. Why they thought they should put tiny little holes on a spoon is beyond me. I would not buy these again. Update: the Company contacted me and sent me new production line Company contacted me and sent me new production line spoons. The spoons do not have holes in them. I was very please with the quick response from the company.
There are better spoons on the market. It was really gross to see that after a few uses there are these tiny holes in the spoon that never get clean. It's a home for dangerous bacteria so I threw them out. Who wants to feed their kid with a moldy spoon?
For us, it just seems like an extra step in transitioning to self feeding. The handles are shorter than typical baby spoons which was really the only plus. When baby eats, it's still just as messy as with a regular spoon and drips all the same. Especially for the amount of time that babies eat purees, I feel like I wasted money for a hyped up overpriced product. As soon as they eat crushed up or diced food they are basically useless and you need a spoon anyway.
I have heard from an Occupational Therapist that these are helpful for babies and toddlers with feeding issues, which is great; I'm sure it could help some who need extra assistance.
Terrible! We thought we would give these a shot despite some of the reviews about the holes that harbor old food.....I thought maybe there was an issue wish washing and these holes were created. NOPE! These spoons do in fact have tiny holes that collect old food, dirty dish water and whatever else can get stuck in there.....and you want to put that in your child's mouth? Mold can be quite harmful and I know Tommee Tippee recalled some sippy cups due to mold in their design.....it probably won't be long until these are recalled too. Save yourself some energy and don't risk your child getting seriously ill from bacteria that can not be cleaned out of these spoons. The company should be fully aware of this issue by now given the reviews and they probably shouldn't wait for a child to get seriously ill before doing something to fix it. There are way better and CHEAPER options you can find on Amazon. I'm going to order some safer spoons now.
I bought these spoons for my 6 month old daughter. I initially loved them and even bought a second set. They work great for the purpose of learning to feed herself. They are easy for her to hold and she likes chewing on them. After a few feeding sessions I noticed that the blue spoons had tiny holes that food gets trapped in. I tried the dishwasher, hand washing and even using a toothpick to get the food out. No luck. I let the spoons sit out not knowing if I should toss them and after a few days the holes with food stuck in them turned black. They went in the trash. I still have the orange ones since my daughter likes using them but I'm watching out for those to make sure they stay clean. I'll give 2 stars for a great concept, but minus three stars for not being able to keep them clean.
