Good nutrition is essential for children to grow up healthy and strong. Developing good eating habits from infancy will help to maintain their well-being for life. To help make parenting less stressful, we have gathered all the feeding tools you will need for the first years at nini & loli.
Deciding how you will feed your newborn is one of the biggest decisions new parents make. Whether you choose to breastfeed, formula feed, or both will depend on your lifestyle and circumstances. But no matter how you do it, feeding time is a perfect opportunity to bond with your child.
Be sure to stock up on the basics before your baby arrives. You will need bibs, burp cloths, and bottles in BPA-free plastic, glass or stainless steel with the right age-specific nipples. A bottle warmer and sterilizer will come in handy. Nursing moms may need a breast pump and storage bags for safely storing pumped milk in the refrigerator or freezer.
When your tot is ready to sit up on their own and start eating solid foods, usually around six months, it’s time to think about an ergonomic high chair and utensils. For chefs who want to create home-cooked, eco-friendly meals using fresh, nutrient-rich ingredients, a baby food maker that can cook and puree makes meal preparation a snap. Just be vigilant about cleanliness and keep food refrigerated or frozen in airtight containers.
Once your toddler has mastered using their own fork and spoon and can drink from a sippy cup or straw, they can transition to a booster chair. But be prepared with silicone rubber placemats, suction bowls, and divided plates to help tame the mess and protect your floors! For snack time on the go, check out our insulated thermal containers and leakproof bottles.
Finally, when your big kid is heading off to school or day camp, we have the durable lunchboxes you need, with convenient compartments to keep foods protected and nicely organized.
