feeding essentials for 6 months +

Your little bundle of joy has hit the 6-month mark, and it's time to dive into the wonderful (and messy) world of solids. Get ready for a journey filled with adorable food-covered faces, high chair adding to the list of just another baby gear, unexpected food fights, and a whole lot of fun.

To make this transition smoother, I've compiled a list of feeding essentials for 6-month-olds that you'll need, starting with the all-important high chair. Let's dig in!

1. High Chair: The Throne for Your Little Foodie

Your first priority? A high chair that's safe, comfy, and easy to clean—trust me, messes will happen. After extensive research, my top choice is the Abiie Beyond Junior High Chair. It’s versatile, grows with your child, holds upto 250 lbs (even adults!), and is incredibly easy to clean. And all you 'neutral aesthetic millennial mommas', this high chair will blend seamlessly with any neutral home aesthetic.

2. Bibs: Keeping Your Baby (and You) Clean

Bibs are an absolute must. These Long Sleeve Bibs are waterproof, easy to wipe clean, and have a handy catch-all pocket for crumbs and spills. It comes in a variety of cute patterns that make mealtime a bit more fun. Definitely one of the key feeding essentials for 6-month-olds.

3. Baby Silicone Meal Set: Easy to maintain

Next up, you'll need some baby-friendly cutlery. The Little Beez Baby Silicone Meal Set is perfect for those little hands just starting to explore self-feeding. They are ergonomically designed and come in fun colors that make mealtime more exciting for your baby. Yes, they are microwave and dishwasher safe.

7. Transition Training Bottle: Learning new skills

When it’s time to start introducing water or milk from a cup, the Philips Avent Transition Training Bottle is a great choice. It's designed to help with the transition and has handles that are easy for little hands to grip.

4. Baby Food Processor: Homemade Goodness

If you're into making your own baby food, the Bear Baby Food Processor with Steamer is a fantastic investment. It steams, blends, defrosts, and reheats, making meal prep a breeze. It just made life so much easier! I have been experimenting with vegetable purees, nut butters and much more. (Recipes coming soon).

5. Food Storage: Keep It Fresh

For storing homemade baby food, the KeaBabies Baby Food Storage Containers are a game-changer. They come in different sizes, are leak-proof, and can go from freezer to microwave to dishwasher. I use a marker to write details about the food, dates etc. They come in 2 differents sizes and avariety of colours.

6. Food Feeder: For Safe Self-Feeding

When your baby is ready to start self-feeding, the Haakaa Food Feeder is a great tool. It allows your baby to explore different tastes and textures safely, without the risk of choking.


Starting solids is an exciting milestone in your baby's life. With the right tools and a sense of humor (because things will get messy), you can make this new adventure enjoyable and stress-free.

Remember, moms, every mess is a memory in the making.
