    When do you actually start using spoons with babies, obviously its when you introduce solid food, but sometimes people also give liquidized food with spoons too which is thick, so whens the right age for this?

    In other words when the best time to use weaning spoons, bottles?

    I introduced after three months, but then I gave milk only once a week when I left DD at my mom's place. I wanted to stop the habit of bottle feeding and that's when I introduced bowl and spoon. You need to give small quantities and allow the child to drink slowly else it may lead to choking.

    After five months I used bowl and spoon regularly.

    Short answer - whenever you are starting semi-solids or pureed food (at whatever age that happens) :)
