Weaning Tables to Love - Montessori Baby Week 25

One of my favorite things about using Montessori with babies is the freedom of movement and respect that small humans are shown. Babies are given opportunities to participate in everyday life in these lovely and organic ways, doing things so similarly to how we do them for ourselves as adults. One example of that is the weaning table. The weaning table is a small table that is built baby-sized for small babies and toddlers to eat at.

The weaning table can look a lot of different ways, but what's important is that a baby can safely access the table and choose to sit and eat or go do something else. Now that Teddy is rapidly approaching 6 months old (how did that happen?!) I'm starting to prepare our weaning space for the introduction of solid food. It's such a fun transition into older baby life! 

With that, I wanted to share some Montessori weaning table examples that have been inspiring me as I start to create Teddy's new space! 




I love shape and feel of this weaning table! So simple but very pleasing!



I love this IKEA table hack! What a great way to make the chair more accessible to babies!



I LOVE the idea of adding a floor cushion for the adult to sit. I have always used a small stool but this looks way comfy! Plus those art prints are gorgeous.



Weaning table with twins! I love this look into an actual meal time.



This weaning table has a lovely minimal feel that I am here for!



If only I could create that view with my weaning table! I love this table from Sprout Kids!



This is another lovely DIY hack of a bigger table! Plus, I love the art and plant which just warm up the space!

I hope these spaces help you see that a weaning area can look a lot of different ways! I'm excited to share more with you about our weaning journey as we start the process with Teddy in the coming weeks.
