Must-Have Baby Feeding Products for Canadian Parents: Making Mealtime Mess-Free and Fun

by Bailey Bouwman

Tackling meal time with baby comes with the option of baby feeding products that can help simplify the task, while offering appropriately sized gear for your new baby. Here's a few of our must-have recommendations for when you start meal time with your baby. 

At Nest & Sprout, we proudly carry the popular Canadian brand Loulou Lollipop, known for their high-quality and stylish baby products from silicone to TENCEL clothing. They have a fantastic meal time collection. As a small shop in Northern BC, we don't have everything you need to start your mealtime adventure, and recommend visiting other local baby shops, or shopping online to fill the gaps.

Making Mealtime Mess-Free and Fun 

In this article, we will guide you through the essential baby feeding products that will help keep mealtime mess-free while providing a casual and friendly approach to feeding your baby.

You'll need a bib: silicone or long sleeve 

Our customers prefer the Loulou Lollipop Silicone Bibs for an easy breezy mess free mealtime: madde from high-quality silicone, they are easy to clean, waterproof, and have a deep pocket to catch food spills and drools. The adjustable neck strap ensures a comfortable fit as your baby grows.

But for some families, they prefer something more full coverage. Loulou Lollipop has a long sleeve bib, but so does Rig N Gig with both offering great coverage and easy clean up for meal times. 

Check out this comparison blog post to learn more about the different types of bibs, and which one might be best for your family and lifestyle. 



Keep it in Place with a Suction Bowl or Plate

Say goodbye to tipped bowls and food spills with a suction bowls. Suction bowls and plates have really taken off in the last five years, but like many things not all suction is the same and some brands definitely move around too much.

With careful consideration for quality and design, we love the Loulou Lollipop Suction bowl for your first meal time adventures, and the cute snack plates for those early days of snacking.

Both are designed to stay in place on the high chair tray or table, these bowls prevent your little one from easily moving or throwing them. Of course, you can start with just any bowl - plastic can be easier if tripped, knocked, or dropped to avoid sharp edges. 

Soft-Tipped Feeding Spoons: Gentle on Delicate Mouths

Your baby's delicate gums and mouth deserve gentle care during feeding. While, any spoon in the drawer that is small can be used, we understand if you want a speciality product that offers more ease and gentle care.
Loulou lollipop offers a soft-tipped feeding spoons that are perfect for introducing solid foods. The long handles make feeding easy for both parents and babies, and as your little one progresses to different food consistencies, consider investing in a set with different sizes and textures to suit their evolving needs.
Another option is to consider a self-feeding tool - something soft and easy to hold like the Num Num PreSpoons or the Training Spoon & Fork from Loulou Lollipop. These are great options if you're exploring baby led weaning and looking to install confidence and skills in using cutlery. 

A Small Cups: Nurturing Independence and Hydration

Introducing a small sippy cup, straw cup, or open lid cup for your baby is an important step in their feeding journey. You'll find many different choices of cups on the market, each with their own audience of critiques and opinions. 
While open lid cups can be terrifying, small ones designed for little hands like the versatile straw cup from Loulou Lollipop, can easily build independence while teaching important skill of how to use a cup - something that is incredibly useful.
Sippy cups with leak proof lids are fantastic because they minimize mess while encouraging regular hydration! Look for size appropriate cups that offer the features you want in your lifestyle - whether it's leak proof, plastic-free, multi stage, or grow with me.

Sturdy and Versatile High Chairs: Safety and Comfort Combined

A reliable high chair is essential for safe and comfortable feeding - you want something with an adjustable seat and foot rest that provides your child with the right comfort to eat and drink, and participate at the table.
A secure harness ensures their safety, and a removable tray makes cleaning a breeze. If you're looking for a high chair that offers convenience on the go, consider one that can be easily folded for storage or travel - this can even be a booster seat style high chair for older kids.
