1- Put Out a Plate
Sometimes, parents make a mistake and don’t put a plate for their baby’s food. They may lay it on the tray and call it a day. But, this is not a good practice.
In fact, it is very beneficial when a baby eats from a baby plate or a bowl.
Baby bowls and plates are also useful because they remind parents of the right proportions they should serve to their babies. They are made for babies and their little hands, so they are quite handy for the weaning stage.
We advise you to use Brother Max Easy Hold Plates for successful mealtimes. They will be very helpful because they have a unique easy-to-hold handle that allows the left or right hand to wrap around for complete stability and support.
