Complementary Feeding Guide: Everything You Need For Your Baby’s Meal

Are you also just starting with complementary feeding and you still have no idea what you actually need for it? So that it hums in your head perhaps a little less, read our Beikost guide. There are many things you can use when your little ones suddenly join you at the table.


Actually, you only need two utensils. One that you can use to steam cook your vegetables, fruit, or meat and something to puree. For this, you can get a blender.


Of course, your child will also need a seat so that you can all eat together at the table.

Ikea High Chair:

Of course, you can choose another high chair, but I chose this one. It is cheap, lightweight, and practical. You can take it apart and put it together in seconds. You can always take it with you when you go to a friend’s house.

That children spill, that one knows yes, but not, how many laundry mountains come there actually on one. The climax is then with the Beikosteinführung. Somehow the food ends up everywhere, just not where it’s supposed to go.

Full-body Bibs:

With full-body bibs, a lot still ends up where it shouldn’t, but at least you only have to wash the bib and not the whole child.

Children’s Tableware

Plates that stick to the table are particularly suitable for the beginning. So at least the plate stays put. A food mat can also be useful. Is also immediately much more relaxed, if you have to remove the food remains only from a spot.

Preparing And Storing

The good thing about complementary feeding is that you can simply pre-cook. Just boil, puree and freeze. From Avent, for example, there are cups where the quantities are on the edge. These are also dishwasher safe.
Also, a freezer mold can not hurt.
