Hi AmitKapur,

While I can't speak for a certain brand of cutlery, it is advised that you should start babies off using a spoon with a soft tip. The baby section at any major store should have a number of options for soft-tipped spoons. Searching reviews and asking any of your friends with small children for advice could give you a good idea of which brands would be right for you and your babies. This guide to introducing your baby to solid foods may have some information you find helpful.

Best wishes,
Atti
