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".
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).
