I was sent a pack of Nûby’s BPA-free Hot Safe Feeding Spoons to review, and I have to say…I wish I’d known about these spoons before we started Baby J on solids. The spoons change color if the baby food is too hot!
Before using these spoons, I would have to stick my finger in Baby J’s food to test it or taste it off the spoon. Neither of those is a very sanitary option. All you do is dip the spoon into the food. If it’s too hot (110° F or more), the color on the spoon will fade. When the color returns, the food is at a safe temperature for your baby to eat.
The colors vary on the spoons, but they are all brightly colored with a long, easy grip handle. The longer handle is nice to reach into taller baby jars. I made most of Baby J’s food, but I would reuse the jars that we did have, so these spoons are nice for that.
One thing I did notice about the spoons we received is that darker liquids like tomato sauce will stain them. The white of the spoons has discolored slightly. This doesn’t affect the functionality of the spoon though. I’ve also noticed that many of the hot safe feeding spoons for sale on sites are not the same as the ones I’ve received- there’s no white on them. I think maybe I received an older style.
In the short video below, you can see Baby J using one of the spoons. The video doesn’t show how the spoons change color, sorry, but Baby J is just so cute making a mess that I wanted to share! =D

One of my favorite roles as a blogger is being an official ambassador for the Nûby product line. The first teethers we bought for Baby J were by Nûby, and I’ve been a fan of the brand ever since! Nûby recently sent us their Foam Bath Animals to review.
The older Baby J gets, the more interested he is in playing with any and everything. He loves baths for that reason. These foam bath animals are made for kids his age (18 months) and up. The animals are made of soft foam and float in water. They’re designed to stick to the bathtub or wall, but we’ve discovered they will also stick to wet toddler tummies or backs! That aspect makes bath time even more fun for Baby J. =D
Each set includes 16 brightly colored animals, and they are -of course- phthalate and BPA free. I’ve been using these foam animals to teach colors to Baby J.
Nûby’s Foam Bath Animals can be found at the following retailers:
With its wide, sturdy base, the Nûby booster seat is durable and safe. The stylish contours will hold your little one comfortably. The included safety straps allow the booster seat to be attached to most chairs. The seat also has straps to keep your child in the seat. Children must be able to sit up unsupported, and the seat holds up to 65 lbs. The booster seat is available in pink, blue, and green.
Baby J still uses a high chair at home, so I took this booster seat to my sister in law’s house. The plan was just for Baby J to use it whenever he was visiting, but my two year old nephew has started using it on a daily basis. It’s handy because it’s lightweight and small; my SIL can remove the seat and move it out of the way when they have guests and need more chairs. It also holds my nephew at the right height. The seat is easy to wipe clean too.
The only negative about this chair is that the white straps get stained easily. Baby J is still messy when he self feeds, and if he spills anything dark on the straps, there will be stains. Since it’s been at my SIL’s I haven’t tried sunning the straps yet, but that should help with the staining. I’m optimistic!
The Nûby booster seat is available at BuyBabyDirect, currently for $19.95.For updates on new Nûby products, follow them on their social media accounts (listed below). Check out the fun contests and giveaways they always have going on!
