Hi Mums of toddlers:

 

I love these, I have taken a few sets from stock and just love them, we don't sell many and I can't work out why? These are the only spoons I find toddlers can learn to feed themselves easily with. I say to Darragh dip, scoop and pop in your mouth in a rhythm as he helps to feed himself. There is one for you and one for him so opposite shapes, I have given a set to Neal’s mum to try and let you know how she gets on.  

 

Le gach dea-ghui, Tizzie

OK, I know I am a little cheeky posting in the product review section given I am not a moderator but I am sure Tizzie won’t mind since I have only nice things to say! Tizzie gave Neal the Amadeus fork and spoon set from he store to try as he has started expressing an interest (ie demanding!) he be allowed to try feeding himself.  I used to give him a normal teaspoon but he would scoop so much it all fell off before the food got to his mouth. The length of a normal spoon meant Neal also could not balance the food properly so the spoon tipped side-ways before it his his mouth. But  the Amadeus spoons are curved so he can easily scoop up a normal amount of food AND get it to his mouth most times because they are curved to fit a toddler’s hand so they can manage them better. Much less frustrating for Neal and mummy. Also a lot less mess for mum to clean up.  The spoons come left- and right-handed.  Neal  prefers the left-handed one so I use the other to feed him (he cannot feed himself the whole meal yet). So a big thumbs up for these spoons and a big thank you to Tizzie for the gift.. I have included some photos.
Oh, they come with a cute, stubby fork too which we look forward to using soon.
Cheers,
HeatherThumbs%20Up

Ok, this is way off topic, sorry but I couldn't resist. Neal is soooooo cute!

Hi,

I just bought these & still find that Brodie flips over the spoon before it gets to his mouth.  He was doing this with his other spoons.  I've found that before this the nuby heat indicator spoons were the best as they were long he didn't have to move his hand too much to reach his mouth so less chance of food falling off.
 
I find that he holds the fork in the amadeus set better than the sppon & doesn't tend to flip it as much maybe as it's a rounded handle & easier to hold on to.  Not sure why they made the fork rounded & spoon flat.
 
Anyway do you have any tips for teaching him to use the spoon?  I hold on to his hand & teach him to scoop & then pop in his mouth.  Getting food on the spoon isn't the problem.  It's getting it to his mouth without it falling off.
 
Thanks,
Jules

PS.  This is one more thing for Nicky.  Have found since eliminating toys & only using cutlery & bowls at meal times Brodie's interest in feeding himself & progress has taken off in leaps & bounds so thanks heaps for helping with that whole distraction thing at meal times.  He's getting very good at feeding himself now.  He says "Wow wee" when he gets his new cutlery all ready to eat like a big boy!

Hi Jules:
 
Toddlers flipping the spoon over like this before they put it in their mouth is very normal and stage all children seem to go through.
 
To help there are a few things you can do.
 
1. Continue to sit with him and place his spoon in his hand and direct it into his mouth praising him the whole time saying "This is how you put the spoon in your mouth, good boy, the food won't fall off it you do it like this. You have a try now...." keep reinforcing not to flip the spoon over
 
2. You could try giving him the other spoon to hold in his left hand as he may be left handed and this might help him to get the spoon into his mouth without flipping it over.
 
The spoons are shaped like they are to assist in toddlers feeding themselves. Sometimes it just takes a bit of perserverence and time.
 
Cheers,
Kay

Hey Jules,

 

No problems at all I am so glad he is taking to the feeding himself so well Clap. Sounds like he is really enjoying his new found independence. Like Kay said I also helped Scarlett with her food by showing her the movement of how to put the spoon/food to her mouth. The armadeus spoons and fork helped us so much with feeding and it is great they have helped you. You are doing such a fabulous job so well done Thumbs UpStar.

Hi girls,

Yeh he's not doing so well with the spoon.  Dropping everything off.  I've tried showing him by using my hand to direct it into his mouth but the minute I hold his hand & try to move it he resists & then eventually lets go & goes for the fork.  He uses the fork but not really suitable with some foods unless they kinda stick to it (like mash).
 
He's definitely right handed as when he picks up something with his left hand he swaps it to the right.  Has done this for quite a while (balls, pens, cutlery).
 
He also just wants to feed himself.  Sometimes only opening his mouth for the food he has in his fingers or on his spoon.  Stubborn as a bull!  (actually he is a bull too being a Taurus).
 
Anyway will keep perservering.
Jules xo

Hey crew,
 
just wanted to add my vote of approval to the Amadeus fork and spoon set!  We love them!
 
Molly, now 16 months, is feeding like a champ, especially the last few days.  The self feeding has really taken off and it really was a breeze.  Unfortunately, my SILs dog ate the left handed spoon - apparently very tasty!!  But it seems Mollly is a right hander and we'll do without it.  Dip, scoop and pop it in your mouth..........man, she never opened her mouth that wide for me!!!  Cheeky!
 
Another excellent Save Our Sleep® ® product
