I’m excited to kick-start my MOM PICK OF THE WEEK series again! You guys know I love finding new and unique baby products, clothing & brands and then sharing them with you on the BLOG…and being pregnant (the 2nd time around) I know there are a slew of new baby products and gear that I need to get up to speed on 🙂
This week’s mom pick of the week goes to my friends at Smilo. The brand is made up of a team of parents who double as doctors, scientists, and engineers…. Whether you are just transitioning to solids or have a toddler on your hands meal time is made easy with their feeding essentials. I love all of their colorful plates, bowls, cups etc and everything is bpa/phalata free. Below I’ve also rounded up some of my favorite meal time tools that made the transition to solids a breeze!

SIPPY CUPS/ STRAW CUP TRAINERS: when we began transitioning from the bottle to the Sippy Cup my favorite two brands which caused minimal leakage and/or spills were the Thinkbaby Cups (you can use either the spout piece or a straw) as well as these Munchinkin Inc click lock weighted straw cup which allows your tot to hold the cup at any angle.. When you’re ready to remove the straw we used the Munchkin Inc miracle 360 trainer cup.
UTENSILS: Rosie now uses these fork & knives set but used these softer silicone spoons as a baby . Smilo baby also makes these heat sensitive spoons that turn white when their food turns over 96.8 degrees which gives you piece of mind their food is safe to enjoy!
BOWLS/PLATES: when you are first starting off on solids these stick and stay bowls & plates are key!! Making it nearly impossible for your little one to be throwing any plates around! Now that Rosie can handle her plate and utensils we use an assortment of plates including these
