Eat the rainbow. Try a variety of colors, flavors & textures. Pediatricians agree that sweet potato, avocado & banana are good first foods for baby, but you don't have to stop there — brown rice, pears & other foods are a fine starting point.

Feeding Spoons. Nope, any spoon won't do. Baby spoons are designed for little mouths & hands, so when it's time for them to hold a utensil unassisted, they'll have a big advantage.
Bowls. If you're a bit of a clean-freak (no judgments here), we suggest suction bowls. They'll stay in place and help keep messes to a minimum.
Bibs. Cloth & cotton bibs are always popular, but if you're looking for options that are easy to wipe down, go for poly or silicone pocket bibs. (Bonus: they catch food).
Tip: Introduce new foods separately (not mixed together), then wait a few days to ensure your baby isn't sensitive to them. Repeat the cycle with another food.
Don't forget highchairs. Because once they start eating solids, they'll need a place of their own to sit.

Welcome to the world of first foods. It's an essential (and fun) next step for baby — they're discovering the mechanics of eating & developing their unique tastes. If your baby is able to sit up unsupported as is able to chew, they're likely ready to make the transition over to first foods. It's important to introduce your baby to a variety of flavors, textures & colors right from the start. You'll be able to gauge what they like & set them up for a more diverse palate (possibly ensuring you won't have the world's pickiest eater on your hands a couple years from now).

Where to start? With the basics you need to make the process a success. The first — and largest — item you'll need is a highchair. Once baby transitions (even partially) from the breast or bottle to solid foods, it's a good idea to give them a place of their own to sit. We carry full-size highchairs that push right up to the table and space-saving highchairs & boosters that attach conveniently to your chairs. They're composed of a variety of materials & finishes, so they'll fit right in with your aeshetic & offer the features you want in a highchair (like easy-to-clean surfaces, washable fabrics, travel-ready design & more). Beyond the highchair, you'll also need feeding utensils designed for baby. Spoons, bowls & bibs are the trifecta. Baby spoons are smaller than regular spoons & feature an ergonomic design, so they're easier for baby to hold & guide to their mouth. When it comes to bowls, we offer a wide range of smart solutions for every stage. We recommend looking into suction bowls, which help prevent spills & messes as baby learns to eat. You'll also find the best bibs in our First Foods Guide, from traditional cloth options to ones made from innovative & easy-to-clean materials. Some bibs even feature pockets that catch fallen food.
