I'm planning a bit of a shopping spree this weekend, and want to get some good stuff for weaning. We've been trying BLW but it's not going so well, so I think I'm going to start making purees as well. What do I really need? Is there a particular product that you couldn't live without? Anything that is a total waste of money and I should avoid like the plague? Help me spend my money please!

A hand blender is a must - I just got a cheapy from Argos, think it was £8.99.
Apart from that just got some bpa free bowls and spoons from ikea (3of each) 2 ice cube trays to freeze left over purées and 2 bibs with sleeves that can be rinsed and dry super quick (also from ikea).

I second long-sleeve bibs especially if you're doing BLW! Have you got a highchair yet? We have a Tripp Trapp and it's fab but if you get the type that pushes up to the dining table rather than having its own tray, I heartily recommend an oilcloth to save your table! Not sure how old your LO is, but Snack Traps are great for when they're nibbling on the go, and I also have tons of little plastic Tupperware type pots for freezing portions of food once they're eating more than just an ice cube or two each meal.

Brother max do some great little storage pots for freezing food or for taking out with you. They have a push up button on the base so its easy to pop out frozen food. They also come in different sizes depending on what stage of weaning you are at. Soft flexible spoons were a good idea at the start and its handy to have a few as they seemed to end up everywhere for me. Another item i would recommend is some sort of splash mat to try and catch the food that ends up on the floor!
