Years ago, when I was still studying for exams, I remember avoiding the books and turning the TV onto E-TV’s Great Expectations. I was procrastinating and ended up watching their special on NUK products. I vowed that one day, my children would end up using their brand. Low and behold, years later – I forgot my promise but Axl made sure that I would stay true to my word, when he rejected his beloved dummy (after 2 weeks of use) and would only use his NUK ones. Slowly, I have adjusted and changed all my products over to NUK.
NUK has recently launched an exciting new range of feeding essentials and were so kind to send over some of their new products for Axl to give a try. As you know, we have started the fun and exciting adventure of introducing solids but sometimes the real struggle is finding the right gear to make the entire experience seamless.
It is always so nice having a parcel arrive for Axl and now that he is old enough, it is just as exciting for him as it is for me. He absolutely adored opening his parcel and playing around with everything before putting it to good use.
We received the weaning set with cutlery which has this little family as Axl grows and starts venturing into new foods, mixing textures, proteins and veg.
The set includes two bowls and cutlery (fork and spoon). I love how appealing the design of their new range is – I really dislike cutlery that is too busy with pictures and colours as it can be distracting which leads to messes, especially when Axl tries to grab the bowl to spot the colours. As you can see, Axl spent quite some time playing with each item from the set before handing it to me, so I could take a peak.
As for the cutlery – I regret not getting the ‘Easy Learning Spoon’ first as I believe it would be better suited for the early days of purés and soft veg. The cutlery that forms part of this set is ideal for babies who are a little older. Reason is, this spoon, is quite deep so Axl struggles getting ALL the puré off. However, I love the grip on the spoon and he loves attempting to feed himself.
So what did eating time look like?
