If you have a baby or toddler who is starting to use their hands more and who needs to work on fine motor skills, getting them to feed themselves is ideal. Babies learn by example, and most have watched their parents eat or feed them enough to know how to do it themselves. Of course, using adult cutlery can be difficult for little hands and little mouths. Instead, your little ones need you to buy baby cutlery.
If you buy baby cutlery in Australia, you’ll have a design to fit comfortably in the hands of babies and toddlers. Its lightweight and shorter than adult cutlery and toddlers can manoeuvre the cutlery easier. You can also wash and reuse it like regular spoons and forks.
It’s also portable so that you can put it into a diaper bag and take it to restaurants in Australia and even on plane, train, and bus rides. This allows your baby to eat anywhere and learn to feed themselves no matter what the situation.
Babies need to be able to practice feeding themselves from an early age. As soon as a child can sit up and eat solid foods, he or she should enjoy figuring out cutlery. Even if the child only holds it in one hand and eats with the other, the child relates the utensil to eating and will eventually start using it. Allowing your little one to play with the baby cutlery is the ideal way to make learning fun and to ensure that baby wants to use it as she becomes older. You can buy many different kinds of baby cutlery online from Sleep Tight Babies in Australia.
