I am 21 weeks pregnant, and setting up my baby registry. So, I am considering that metal spoons could hurt the baby's gums, but plastic spoons could contain plastic chemicals. Any thoughts? First time posting here, after being on the Bump for a while and looking for something more "crunchy".
BPA free Plastic Spoons or Metal Spoons?
Plastic is definitely softer on the mouth, and lighter (therefore easier to hold in some ways), but it's plastic. There's also silicone-coated spoons to add to the dilemma. ;) I used those for awhile, but that phase was short.
The most useful thing I've invested in (as for as utensils go) is a bunch of extra small-sized (regular) stainless steel spoons. We go through a ton of those around here, and they definitely seem to work a lot better than the adult-sized ones! (easier to hold, easier to put in the mouth).
