EcoMom formerly known as Sprout Baby is a great place to buy anything you need for baby. You can find natural and organic products including baby food, cleaning supplies, and more. Most of what I have seen of their products are natural or organic. EcoMom also has toys and books including organic and natural wood toys. You can even check out their organic art supplies! EcoMom has great products for feeding baby too! I was given the opportunity to work with EcoMom on a review and we were sent Benders Utensils from Boon.
The Benders Utensils
include a spoon and a fork. I was pleased with the fork because ieven though it’s a fork, it’s also shaped like a spoon which makes little eaters just learning to use a fork easier because it can still be somewhat used like a spoon. What’s unique about the Benders Utensils
is that they are adaptable to your baby or toddler’s motor skills development.
How do they work? Well, first of all they are easy to grip. They are kind of chunky so they are great for your little one’s hands to grip. They are also non-slip and they are comfortable for mommy or daddy to hold onto to feed with them too. All little ones hold a spoon or fork sideways when they first start learning to feed themselves. Because of this, the head of the utensil goes into the mouth sideways. This is what makes the Benders Utensils
so unique. The heads of the utensils bend and you can bend them as much or as little (not recommeded at a 90 degree angle) as your baby or toddlers motor skills needs. This allows the head of the utensils to go into your child’s mouth straight even thought they are holding the spoon or fork sideways.
They are recommended for ages 9 months and older. Our little guy is 7 1/2 months old and we went ahead and let him try to use them himself. He already reaches for the spoon when we feed him and we have already introduced the sippy cup so we thought why not? We just give him one while he is eating so he can figure out that the spoon is supposed to go to his mouth since he knows that the spoon we are feeding him with goes to his mouth. He plays with them but also picks them up and a few times he has gotten them to his mouth himself. He still isn’t very good with it yet but he is still a bit young.
I think the Benders Utensils
are perfect for little ones learning to feed themselves and I love that they are adaptable or adjustable to your child’s development needs. They are dishwasher safe, BPA, Phthalate, and PVC free.
