The best baby spoons for weaning

When it comes to spoons for weaning, there is a surprisingly vast array of options. We scoured the reviews to find the best ones available.

If the time has come to wean your baby onto solids, you'll need an efficient way to feed her, that won't risk damaging her erupting teeth or tender gums.

A baby spoon should be made from a soft material and the tip should be small enough to only provide a tiny portion of food with every scoop.

We've done all the research for you and come up with this list of the best baby spoons for weaning.

1. Top pick: Yoofoss Silicone Baby Spoons

This silicone baby spoon has a softer tip, which is kind on small gums and won't cause damage to your baby’s developing teeth. A BPA-free design gives you peace of mind at feeding time.

The pack includes four spoons made from soft silicone.

Pros

  • Comes with four spoons
  • Soft and durable silicone design

Cons

  • Long, thin design could go down baby's throat

2. Best with a case: Novos Spoons with Travel Safe Case

This travel set of two spoons ensures there is always clean cutlery around when feeding your baby. We love the bendable design at the handle which makes teaching your baby to feed herself easier. The set comes with two spoons, as well as a  useful carry case to help keep cutlery clean on the go.

Pros

  • Travel-friendly set
  • Two spoons included

Cons

  • Handle may break with consistent bending

3. Best basic spoon: vital baby Nourish Start Weaning Spoons

These spoons offer a softer material to provide a gentler way of weaning your baby. The easy-grip handle of the spoon makes it an ideal option not only for weaning a baby but also when it comes to self-feeding as it's easier for a young child to grasp alone. The tip of the spoon is shallow, making it easier to fit into an infant’s smaller mouth.

Pros

  • Shallow spoon design for smaller mouthfuls
  • Silicone grip making it easier to grasp

Cons

  • No larger options for older toddlers

4. Best multi-purpose spoon: Nooni Care Baby Soft Tip Silicone Feeding Spoons and Teether

This triple pack of spoons means you'll always have one to hand – and we all know how many spoons end up on the floor during the course of one baby mealtime. The entire spoon is made from silicone materials and has a soft and flexible tip so is gentle on your baby's gums. The spoons double as teethers, too.

Pros

  • Soft design for added safety and gentler feeding
  • BPA free
  • Good for teething, as well as eating

Cons

  • Does not scoop up some solid foods

5. Best spoon with extended handles: Tommee Tippee Explora Soft Tip Weaning Spoons

A multicoloured pack of spoons that add fun to feeding time. Each baby spoon comes in a different colour, including blue, green, yellow and purple and the extended length of the handles makes feeding that bit easier. The tip of the spoon has a shallow design that makes for nice, small mouthfuls.

Pros

  • Comes with five spoons
  • Base is shallow

Cons

  • Handle does not offer a bendable structure
