If your baby doesn't tolerate a bib, tie-on ones are harder to yank off than Velcro ones. (But always supervise your baby while they're eating, for safety reasons.) The matching EZPZ suction placemat-and-plate combo thwarts babies who like to chuck their bowls across the kitchen.
Some dietitians and baby development experts dislike purée pouches because babies and toddlers tend to just suck straight from the pouch, instead of learning to eat with utensils. With these screw-on spoon attachments, you don't have to squirt the purée into a bowl at all. Definitely add these to your newborn checklist.
Baby food pouches are super convenient, but instead of buying countless disposable ones that will end up in a landfill, try these refillable, dishwasher-safe reusable pouches. Fill them with unsweetened applesauce, yogurt or homemade purées.
If you already own a food-processor, you don't necessarily need to buy a special all-in-one appliance solely for making baby food, but they can be handy. (And this sleek model will look great on your kitchen counter.)
These itty-bitty training spoons for self-feeding babies are adorable and easy to grip. These make feeding homemade purees and eats from the best baby food delivery services a breeze.

Let baby gnaw on new tastes inside a silicone feeder that's easier to clean than the traditional mesh feeders. You can also use frozen food in a feeder to relieve a teething baby's sore gums.
