Not much really, although some people may encourage you kit out your whole kitchen. Save the money and spend it on fresh, tasty ingredients instead.
- Bibs – plastic backing will stop clothes getting stained
- Shallow plastic weaning spoons
- Hand blender – to make up purees with this. A food processor, liquidizer or sieve and spoon will work well too.
- Ice cube trays – you freeze the puree in these
- Plastic bags – to store frozen cubes
- A saucepan with a lid
- Sieve – to remove all lumps
- A free flowing beaker with lid (see post on drinks to follow at a later date)
- A high chair – for babies that need some support sitting you can use the car seat, bouncer or a bumba seat
- A steamer (buy one you can just put on a saucepan and use for your own meals as well…two birds with one stone!)
TOP TIP: Let your baby play with the spoon a few days before trying with food. This will help him get used to having it in his mouth
