Once you’ve seen the signs and are ready to start, many parents will use their finger as the very first spoon. Because it’s warm, familiar, and soft, it’s a great way to help them try their very first bite. Place your clean fingertip in the puree and place it on your baby’s lips and then try offering a fingertip full for the next few bites.

Keep an eye on your baby’s reactions to this new experience. If they push the food out with their tongue their tongue thrust reflex might still be too active and you should try again later. Some babies will make cute and funny faces when they try solids for the first few weeks. This usually is just a reaction to the newness of it all and doesn’t mean they don’t like the food. Don’t forget to have your phone out to take a video of their very first taste! Here's the list of Babyblends that are great for your very first box:

  • Apple

  • Guava

  • Mango

  • Pear

  • Peach

  • Prune

  • Butternut Squash

  • Parsnip

  • Purple Carrot

These purees are milder in flavor and texturally appropriate for babies as young as 4 months old. You can introduce flavors one at a time, or mix your own simple blends using 2+ single ingredient purees once your little one has tried them.
