For the past 2 weeks we have been working with Jana to start eating baby foods. Her physical therapist was concerned that we would have difficulties with Jana eating. You see, the majority of children with Down’s have a struggle eating solid foods. This could be due to texture issues, enlarged tongue or small jaw, or low muscle control. All these create struggles and stress for parents attempting to introduce solid foods to their child. Thankfully, Jana has not had any of these issues. She never struggled with her bottle so we were hopeful that solids would go just as smoothly. I did however make sure I provided her with the best possible tools to help her on her way.
That’s where the Oogaa Baby Spoons came in! These spoons are made from a high-grade silicone, which is not only chemical free but also soft enough for Jana to chew on without hurting herself. But the thing that drew me to these special spoons was the textured underside that helps stimulate babies senses. This has helped Jana transition much easier and she is even learning to open her mouth when the spoon comes her way.
I am now in love with this company!! They also have teethers, bowls, non-slip mats and (my most favorite!) spoons that have trains and airplanes on them! (“Here comes the train! Choo-Choo” Get it 🙂 ) We already purchased a meal set to prepare for when Jana gets to eat “real foods.” All their products are dishwasher safe and non-toxic. They are a company that strives for quality over quantity and have helped make meal time fun!! Check them out here: Oogaa Baby
By the way…I in NO way was asked to do this review. We purchased these items on our own to help Jana with her progress. I just wanted to share our love with you 🙂
