When to Use
To safely use a utensil, a child must be able to sit unassisted and hold their head up. After which, experts recommend introducing a utensil when the child expresses an interest. This can happen as early as 6 months, but most kids are truly ready to tackle utensils somewhere between 10 and 14 months.
How to Use
Introduce stage one pre-spoon (with raised textures) first so child can soothe their sore gums as they are getting acclimated to holding the utensil. Once the child has learned the basic food-to-mouth motion, the stage two pre-spoon, which holds more food, can be used interchangeably for thicker foods.
When to Transition to Spoon:
Most children get wrist rotation around their second birthday. Wrist rotation unlocks scooping and balancing, allowing the child to properly use a spoon. Some signs that wrist rotation has set in include scooping around the corners of the bowl and successfully maneuvering the spoon to the mouth with more food. If these signs are present, congratulations, your child is ready to graduate to the spoon!
