Learn About the Essentials for Baby's First Foods

When it comes to baby's first foods, there are two methods of introducing solids. The traditional method includes baby being spoon-fed purees by an adult, in contrast to the Baby-Led Weaning method which consists of skipping purees and giving baby finger-foods that the family is eating at mealtime.

No matter the method you choose to start baby’s first foods, Bumkins has you covered with helpful mealtime solutions. We have carefully designed gear to fit around each method’s needs. Learn more below about the gear tailor to the traditional method of baby’s first foods.

Starter Bib

Sized for 3 to 9 months

baby's first bib for purees

Ideal for the traditional parent-led feeding

Sized for younger and smaller babies

The smallest of allest, our Starter Bib is sized to fit above the highchair tray, keeping those messy purees off baby's clothes, making these bibs ideal for baby's first feeding bib. Sized 8" across and 6" long, our Starter Bibs have a soft, adjustable closure, and a catch-all pocket.

With our waterproof fabric, these bibs are perfect for ages 3-9 months while baby is experimenting with their first foods. Once baby has outgrown our Starter Bib, you can size up to our SuperBib.

Waterproof Fabric

Keep those purees off baby

Bumkins' signature waterproof fabric is both soft and strong. Tough enough for daily use and easy to wash, it stands up to messes big and small.

Unlike other fabrics, our fabric doesn't have a stiff layer of plastic backing. With our colorfast technology, our prints and designs will stay bright and colorful for many washes to come! Learn more about our signature fabric.

Catch-All Pocket

Less mess in baby's lap

All of our bibs feature a handy catch-all pocket so you can spend less time cleaning messes off baby’s lap and out of the highchair. Baby purees can be messy, leaving our pockets up for the task of catching those runaway puree dribbles.

Plus, as baby grows, little ones can work on their fine motor skills by digging into the crumb-catching pocket and finding mealtime treasure.

Machine Washable

Who has time to hand-wash?

At Bumkins, we're all parents. We know there's no end to the laundry, so we've made it even easier for you. You can toss that bib into the washing machine.

Baby's First Spoon

Comes in a set of three

  • Introduce baby to purees with this set of starter spoons. Silicone Dipping Spoons are made from 100% food-safe silicone that is soft and gentle on gums, and the spoon is sized for baby's small mouth.

    In the world of baby’s first food, it’s not uncommon for spoons to hit the floor, so this three-pack means you will always have a clean spoon handy. Plus, as baby grows, they tend to explore for themselves, meaning you may find baby holding a spoon in each hand while you continue feeding them. Thankfully, this three-pack of baby’s first spoons means you have one for each hand!

Grows With Baby

Double ended, multi use

Silicone Dipping Spoons are double-ended to grow with baby—one side for dipping into purees, the other for scooping.

As baby begins to want to feed themselves, this spoon gives them the ability to learn the motions of self-feeding while under the supervision of an adult.

One End for Dipping

Great for hand-eye coordination

As baby is just getting familiar with the feeding process, the dipping end of the spoon is great for learning the motions of self-feeding.

The dipping end of the spoon is flat, with grooves on both sides to easily grasp those purees and mashed first foods. Thanks to those grooves, both sides of the dipping end allow for a successful dip; there's no wrong way to dip! This helps baby to feel accomplished while first learning and encourages them to keep trying!

One End for Scooping

Graduating to the big bites

Once baby has mastered the motion of dipping and landing in the bowl, the opposite end of the spoon becomes more interesting. Sized for baby's small mouth, this end of the spoon allows for perfect-sized first bites. Now, baby can work on the full scoop-motion and get a spoonful.

Platinum Cured Silicone

The better kind of silicone

Silicone is extremely durable, easy to care for, and safe to use. During creation, silicone can be "cured" with two types of curing agents. We use the best one - platinum. When cured with platinum, there are no by-products created, and the silicone's already fabulous qualities are amplified.

Strong Suction Base

Keeping the dish in place

We know there will be a lot of food hitting the floor during mealtime. Thanks to our strong suction bases, we're helping to stop those dishes from going airborne!

Now you can suction your bowl straight onto baby's tray while introducing those first bites of purees. Plus, once baby hits the stage of self-discovery, our strong suction bases help keep the dish in place - and off the floor - while baby is learning how to use utensils and grab onto those slippery first foods.
