 Rubber Coated Spoon

So after many months, the inevitable finally happened and my finger got nipped while hand feeding Spikey a piece of banana so I decided to dig out one of my son’s old Gerber rubber coated baby spoons to finish off his "treat time". He bit down really hard on the spoon a couple of times. He didn’t take off any pieces or anything like that,but is it safe for me to continue feeding him this way or is there anything in the rubber coating that might hurt him?

Thanks for all your help in advance,
Evelyn.

Hi Evelyn,

You can still feed him by hand, just make sure you spread your hand out and place what you are givine him on the palm. If it’s something saucy, like apple sauce or baby food, then i would just put it on top of the salad like dressing, or in a little bowl. I don’t think the rubber itself would hurt him, but chomping down hard on the spoon could hurt his teeth.

Edel,

Thanks for your reply. I’ll try hand feeding him that way. I wouldn’t want him to hurt himself in any way.
Thanks again!
Evelyn.
