Our cutlery set has been designed with a leading paediatric occupational therapist (OT) as the ideal toolkit for tots who are ready to self feed. The unique spoon shape acts as shovel helping little ones to scoop up their food, even with a flat plate. The unique deep scoop spoon shape and angled handles encourages correct hand to mouth positioning, and helps to contain food within the spoon as bubs practices bringing it to his/her mouth, which means more food makes it to the mouth and less mess! Our unique flork has been designed to fit the size and shapes of little mouths. Its curved blunt prongs are gentler (and safer) on little mouths and gums. Set comes complete with a handy travel case to keep utensils clean before mealtime on the go, and after to prevent soiling in nappy bags or hand bag.
Always use this product with adult supervision. Accidents have occurred when babies and toddlers have been left alone with drinking equipment due to the child falling or if the product has disassembled.
Never use feeding teats as a soother. Continuous and prolonged sucking of fluids will cause tooth decay. Tooth decay in young children can occur even when non-sweetened fluids are used. This can occur if the child is allowed to use the bottle or cup for long periods through the day and particularly through the night, when saliva flow is reduced or if it is used as a soother.
Always check food temperature before feeding. Heating in a microwave may produce localised high temperatures.
Keep all components not in use out of reach of children. Straws are not suitable for a child under 6 months.
Inspect before each use and pull the feeding teat in all directions. Throw away at first signs of damage or weakness.
Do not leave a feeding teat, spout or straw in direct sunlight or heat or leave in disinfectant ("sterilising solution") for longer than recommended, as this may weaken the teat, spout or straw. Before first use, place teat in boiling water for 5 minutes. This is to ensure hygiene. clean before each use.
