Boon SWAP 2 in 1 feeding spoon – review

Boon SWAP 2 in 1 feeding spoon 

As Amy is not quite yet 5 months yet we haven’t started weaning – it is however on the horizon and I’m starting to think about getting prepared.  I can’t actually test the spoons out with real life food just yet so I gave them to Amy to play with.  (I think this is a really good thing to do prior to weaning as it gets them used to the spoons and of course any baby at this age just puts stuff in their mouth anyway!)

What we like: 

Boon SWAP 2 in 1 feeding spoon
Amy explores her new spoons

* The bright unisex colours (you all know by now I don’t like buying pink stuff for my girls)

* The dual ends allow Amy to choose which texture she prefers

* The soft tip is sturdy but flexible

* The metal tip has a lovely rounded shape with a shallow “spoon” you won’t over load it

* The spoons ends are lovely and small so will fit comfortably into Amy’s little mouth

* Each spoon features a flat tip for scooping up all that food which will inevitable end up around Amy’s mouth all over Amy’s face

* The spoons are angled for jars and containers for easy feeding

* They go in the dishwasher (phew!)

* They’re made from food-grade silicone & stainless steel – BpA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free

* They’re not too heavy for Amy to handle herself (though they are designed more for Mummy and Daddy to use)

What we’re not so keen on: 

* I’ve yet to be convinced by the metal spoon – I’ve only ever used softer spoons when I weaned the bigger two so it seems a bit odd to use a metal spoon.  The Boon website says “Your baby will let you know which side of the spoon works best” so I guess we’ll just have to see what Amy prefers when the time comes!

* They are not cheap at all – at around £10 for a pair of spoons you don’t want to be losing them when you’re out and about (please tell me I’m not the only one that leaves things behind everywhere they go?!)

I’m looking forward to trying these out properly with Amy when we start to introduce food in the next month or so!

We're going on an adventure

  1. I love that these have a choice of ends – but like you I'm not keen on metal ones, LP only really started with metal cutlery at about a year or older! x

  2. I used both metal and plastic with Joshua, the metal ones were great at getting him used to 'normal' cutlery and the transition was really smooth. Good luck with the weaning stage x

  3. We used all the soft plastic ones with our eldest but the youngest just used what ever spoon he was given which was often metal. We did baby led weaning though, so not sure if tat made any difference. The price would out me off those though!

  4. Whoa, for weaning spoons that's steep. And yes, you're not the only one who loses spoons. We used cheapo ones and then nicer sets when he was a bit older…but they're still spread over the farm and at our house.

  5. I really like the look of these, Boon is a brand I haven't heard much about really. I like the fact these are dual ended, ideal for fussy little ones who dont like the softer spoon

  6. To be honest, the metal wouldn't put me off these and I like that they are double ended so you have the option of both. A cold teaspoon can be nice on sore gums when teething, this one with it's shape designed for little mouths would be ideal.

  7. I like the idea of these being double ended, but I think for early stages of weaning, I'd prefer a soft spoon. The flat tip is great though. I was surprised at how many weaning spoons weren't great for scooping up spills! Definitely in the expensive side too. I lost loads of spoons out and about and I'd be gutted to lose one that cost that much!

  8. In theory they are a good idea as the twins were always putting the handle end in their mouths to chew on, so I'm not sure if I'd like the metal end. Also at £10 for a pack, they're expensive, especially when we'd need two packs x #TriedTested

  9. I think the price of these would put me off – you could just buy some soft spoons and some metal spoons for your money! Maybe one of those inventions that is just a little bit pointless? Some babies might like them though, I suppose 🙂
