Munchkin Mummy Giveaway

Back in March Joss and I received a mammoth package of goodies from Munchkin.  I’m a Munchkin Mummy and have been testing and reviewing products with Joss on a regular basis.  We’ve blogged about bathing and teething products, this post is all about feeding! 

A bit of background to Joss’ feeding is helpful!  At five days old Joss was more interested in the world around her than eating, at 14 months old she’s more interested in playing than eating!  She’s a petite little lady, eats just enough to sustain her mammoth energy and likes to be very very independent with food!  We love our Munchkin highchair, it goes everywhere with us, to the grandparent’s houses for work days and we often dine alfresco and pop outside with the chair.  Joss’ ‘I can do it for myself’ approach to food is very, very messy, all toddlers are mucky pups and Joss is no exception but she refuses to be spoon fed and very much baby led weaned, we had no choice!

She loves a good ‘party tea’ small bits of food that can be eaten on the hop to get back to playing; raisins, pancakes, fruit (she’s a fruit bat she eats so much of it), broccoli, cheese batons and avocado are her favourites.  Whilst its great that she cracks on and feeds herself we wanted to start introducing some ‘tools of the trade’ so bowls and plates and spoons have slowly started to be introduced.  We have Munchkin fish print sets to move on to as she gets older, but for now the suction plates and bowls give her some independence whilst preventing a whole bowl being thrown or tipped by clumsy hands!

Our baby group leader suggested we look for spoons with long handles, she told us to imagine being fed by someone wearing a boxing glove, that is what a baby sees when a big adult hand comes in with a spoon!  It made sense, and Munchkin’s soft tip spoons are lovely long spoons with really comfy soft handles for moving on to self-feeding. 

Munchkin have kindly given me a big bundle of soft tip spoon sets to give away, I have ten sets for my lovely blog readers.  Each pack contains six colourful spoons suitable from weaning plus.

  1. Hey Angela! Rose eats everything as youknow- though yoghurt is a particular favourite in this heat. Along with sausages and brown sauce. Sometimes all at once- weird child! Joss looks great, really growing up now!

  2. Hello there,
    You have summed up our son to a T! When he was born he wouldn’t eat, at 4 days old he was admitted into hospital turns out due to lack of drinking he had meningitis and a RSV B virus! He too is too independent, wants to feed himself and now at 20 months is full of energy!

    His favourite meal is shepards pie.

    I have tweeted this via my Twitter @Flumplicious and now following you too! I am now following your blog, I’m a newbie blogger too (A day old) and have signed up to your email subscription too. I look forward to getting to know you and your blog some more.

She loves : boiled baby carrot, sticky rice, cucumber sticks, fresh mozzarella slices, toast, banana, grilled cod, roasted chicken, meatballs in tomato, blueberry filled wheats and softened cheerios!
