Are Toddler Divided Plates Useful?
Introducing solids to your baby is a highly anticipated milestone for parents and babies alike! You wonder how your baby will respond as you offer them their very first taste of solid food. Before that first bite, you had to decide whether you were going with purees or the baby-led weaning route.
A high-chair tray will likely work at first, but eventually, you'll want to invest in some baby plates. Toddler divided plates are preferred by many babies, toddlers, children, and parents! One Spearmint Community mom shared her experience using toddler divided plates.
Toddler Divided Plates Make Things Easy
Let's introduce you to @momma.on.duty. There's excitement AND stress around big milestones like starting solids. This mom writes, "Feeding solids has been a stressor for me from the start! Choking scares me, nutrition needs scare me, and quantity factors scare me. In the beginning I hated having to worry about food groups and honestly preferred breastfeeding overall!"
How many breastfeeding moms can relate to that!? Once you start solids, suddenly important topics like nutrition and food groups come into play. Fortunately, toddler divided plates can help!
Feeding Baby Solids With Suction Plates
This mom went on to explain, "I have quickly realized that feeding solids is easier than I thought and easier then I was making it. The biggest trick I have learned involves sectioned and suction plates! Using divided plates helps me incorporate different food groups, textures, and colors."
Baby plates can be either suction plates or divided plates or both! The suction feature is mainly beneficial to you as the person responsible for clean up! There's less mess when the bowl or plate stay on the table or tray rather than being thrown like babies and toddlers love to do!
