Solid Feeding Must-Haves

These are some of the newest products for beginning solids with a few favorites that I have tried myself to make this chapter a little easier for both mom and baby.

It has a tie-back closure so it’s not as easy for babies to pull off like velcro (speaking from experience). The bibs can be easily wiped  clean after each use, they’re machine washable, and are made of safe materials that are free from BPA, PVC, phthalates, and vinyl.
