When it comes to spoons for weaning, there are 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 definitely won't risk damaging her erupting teeth or 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.

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

Pros

  • Travel-friendly set
  • Two spoons included

A double set with a baby spoon made to provide resistance against heat. A bendable design at the handle makes teaching your baby to feed herself easier. The set comes with two of the spoons, as well as a hard case for storage.

Price: £7, two spoons and one travel case

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

Vital baby nourish spoon

A softer material is used to provide a gentler way of weaning your baby. The shallow design allows you to serve up smaller scoops.

Pros

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

Cons

  • No larger options for older toddlers

What we like

The easy-grip handle of this baby 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.

Price: £3 for five spoons

  • BPA free
  • Good for teething, as well as eating

Cons

  • Does not scoop up some solid foods

What we like

The 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.

Price: £13 for three spoons

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

Tommee Tippee spoon

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

What we like
