NumNum Baby Self-Feeding Starter Kit (Beginner Bowl & NumNum GOOtensil set)
When it’s too soon to spoon, it’s the perfect time for NumNum.
Made for babies just starting their journey to the spoon, the NumNum Self-Feeding Starter Kit includes a stage one pre-spoon with textures that acts as a feeding-teether to help your child get acclimated to holding a utensil. Once they’ve learned the basics, they can also use the innovative stage two pre-spoon with channels for trapping food. Both products are designed for use with the Beginner Bowl, also included, that features a patent-pending cone-shaped interior that helps kids find and enjoy every bite.
Designed for use with purees and other food blends, a NumNum GOOtensil™ is a pre-spoon that makes self-feeding easier for little ones. Unlike a spoon, the head is flat, so there's no scooping, no balancing, and no wrong way to hold it!

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.
GOOtensils can be used with a range of foods, including baby food, home blends, oatmeal, yogurt, mashed solids and more. We share recipes on our social media often!
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!
