Getting you started – the essentials…
We understand that weaning can be an extremely daunting and stressful process. It’s all so new and the questions are endless – “What food to start off with? How many days for? What to give when? How much to give? What equipment do I need??”
For your baby, it can be just as trying. To experience new textures and tastes is both an exciting and bewildering experience. All of a sudden a spoon filled with what can only be described as orange mush makes its way towards your mouth…. and you’re just expected to eat it?! Here’s hoping…
Although it’s by no means easy peasy in the beginning, there are lots of ways you can prepare and equip yourself for this new chapter in your little ones life.
The important stuff:
-On the go
To make life a little easier Brother Max has created a set of rather yummy 1st-Stage-Weaning-Pots (6x40ml). More convenient than little pots or ice cube trays, these outrageously clever portioners are the most versatile on the market, made up of individual pots that simply click together, with hinged lids that actually stay open so they don’t get in the way when pouring, and close tight to avoid spill & leaks – simple stuff but very handy!
The pots allow you to make up a big batch of food, to then pour and store in the freezer – there’s even a pen included for writing contents straight onto each pot, because by now you’ll have learned that all frozen baby food looks the same. So next time, simply unclick the quantity you need and either defrost them in in the microwave and serve straight from the pot using the insulated handles, or push the base with your thumb and voila!, out pops your lovely portion of ready-to-go food.
Bowl me over
As your baby gets the hang of this ‘solids’ idea, they’ll need larger pots and bowls for larger portions. The Brother Max 2nd-Stage-Weaning-Pots are perfect for when your baby’s appetite starts increasing. They include all of the same great functionality; but increase in size to 170ml (pack of 4). These larger post are also great for the raisins and blueberries they love when snacking on the go.
“More Mummy!” The next step can be handled with Brother Maxs’ 3-Easy-Hold-Bowls. As the name suggests, an easy-hold handle is built in to the design for complete stability and support (so no bowls being thrown on the floor by over excited Mini-Maxs’!) and they even have the added benefit of a detachable sucker base.
Feeding on the go
The Brother Max Easy-Hold-Weaning-Bowl-Set is another unique, multi-purpose product that accommodates different feeding needs. The large feeding bowl with added internal, smaller and removable divided bowl, offers you choice of either a single or two-course meal out and about.
Food can be heated easily in the microwave thanks to the bowl’s unique vent feature, while a cleverly designed separate compartment stores cutlery, either clean or dirty, for mess-free travelling.
Its easy-to-hold handle allows your hand to pass through and wrap around for complete stability and support, preventing baby from the inevitable ‘knock the bowl on the floor’ scenario. This design makes the bowl comfortable to use for any size hand, ideal for the whole family; from parents feeding smaller babies to children mastering the art of feeding themselves as they gain confidence.
Worry number three hundred and seventy six: “What type of cup does my little one need??”
Worry not. Brother Max has created the only cup you’ll ever want in the shape of the super-clever 4-in-1-Trainer-Cup taking baby from bottle to cup in 4 different ways. This genius little cup has been designed with baby in mind. The angled design, chunky sipper ring and lighter weight makes the transition from bottle to cup far easier for little ones developing at different rates.
As we all know it’s quite the jungle out there when it comes to the humble cup. Sipper, gripper, spout, teat, where to begin?? The Brother Max 4-in-1 Trainer Cup offers durability and value for money as there is no need to buy different cups for different stages – reducing the number of cups (and pesky lids) in your cupboard!
