The Ultimate Baby Gift: Starting Solids Survival Kit

From weeSpring’s guide to practical gift giving: survival kits for almost every new-baby-need.  We pulled these items from our weeLists, which are weeSpring parents’ own individual lists of what got them through all of the different ages and stages.  


For new and expecting parents, introducing solids usually feels like a lifetime away, but as the saying goes, the days are long but the years are short — and those first six months fly by fast.  Make sure they have everything they need when they’re ready to start purees, from bibs and bowls to spoons and sippy cups.

THE BASICS (this will run in the $40 to $50 range)

Bumkins Bibs

Munchkin Soft Tip Spoons

Munchkin Snack Catchers

Playtex My First Sipster

Munchkin Bowls

Gerber Forks

Most parents include a high chair in their registry, but you could still consider adding:

Phil + Ted’s Lobster Chair, because it is amazing for travel,

or Wean Green Containers, because they’re perfect for storing baby food.
