The kidsme Food Feeder is a feeding essential. It is perfect for
introducing solid foods to your baby and encourages them to actively
participate in the feeding process. Studies show that an early
transition to solid food aids in your baby’ development, including in
areas such as motor skills and digestion. Another study shows that early
exposure to different tastes and textures is important for food
acceptance. Moreover, the kidsme Food Feeder is designed to safely
introduce new food experiences whilst reducing the risk of choking. The
Food Feeder includes ergonomic handles and easy-to-clean silicone sacs.
It is perfect for precious little ones and their busy parents.
You should start giving your baby solid foods, often called "weaning",
when they are around six months old. Many health experts agree that this
is the best age. Before this, your baby's digestive system is not
developed enough to cope with solid foods. If you're breastfeeding,
feeding only breast milk up to around six months of age will give your
baby extra protection against infection. Breastfeeding beyond six months
alongside solid foods will continue to protect your baby for as long as
you carry on. If you're bottle feeding, you should give your baby
infant formula until around six months and continue it afterwards, along
with solid foods. If your baby seems hungrier at any time before six
months, give them extra milk feeds. Babies born early (prematurely) may
be ready for solids at different times. Ask your health professional for
advice about what's best for your baby.
It’s very normal for babies aged four to five months to start waking
during the night as they may be in a very light sleep and wake easily.
If you think your baby is hungry you can try offering larger milk feeds
during the day but if this doesn’t satisfy him then you can begin
Your baby will reduce the amount of milk they drink as they eat more
food. Once your baby is eating solids three times a day you may find
they begin drinking less of their milk feeds. When you start offering
two courses as his main meals you may find he is not interested in a
milk feed after the meal and you can drop this feed. Your baby still
needs at least 500 -600mls of formula feed a day until he is 12 months
old. If you’re breastfeeding, on the other hand, you can keep feeding on
When your baby is first starting out on solids, offer the same food once
or twice a day in addition to breastfeeding or bottle feeding. As your
baby’s interest and skills develop, you can offer food more often. When
she’s ready, your baby should be joining the family at the table and
eating. She can use the kidsme Food Feeder and her fingers to eat some
of the same soft, easy-to-chew foods everyone else is eating.
It's really quite simple. With the cap on, open the snap lock. Using a
spoon, fill the feeder with wholesome foods for your baby. After
shutting the snap lock, remove the cap and give them the Feeder. You
could even simply place the Feeder in front of them and encourage them
to pick it up on their own. These actions will contribute to effective
development of fine motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination.
