  1. NumNum

Product:  GOOtensil or the numnum $9.99

  • Designed for use with purees and homemade blends, the NumNum® GOOtensil is a pre-spoon that makes self-feeding easier for little ones ready to participate in the feeding process, but not quite ready for the spoon.
  • Flat head means no scooping and no balancing. Just dip and eat. The key to using the spoon is wrist rotation, but wrist rotation can take from 6 months to a year to develop AFTER the child has started using the utensil
  • Perfectly sized to fit a baby's hand. While package says 6+ months, most kids aren't ready for a utensil until around 10 - 12 mos (parents have to look for clues they're ready!)
  • The Blue NumNum is the starter GOOtensil for baby's first experience with a utensil as it grabs just enough of thinner blends to give a taste of self-feeding independence. Ideal for thicker blends, the Orange NumNum is for self-feeders who have mastered the basic food-to-mouth motion
