As with all the baby products, getting the right one takes time and lots of trials. When it comes to feeding spoons, there is no difference. By the time I got to my second baby I had pretty much tried most of them.
Your baby’s first spoons should be small, since your baby can’t eat much at this time, and the tips should also be soft so they are gentle enough on your baby’s gums. Nowadays you can also get spoons that turn white if the food happens to be over 110°F (43.3°C). My favorites so far are the Munchkin Safety Spoons, which turn white if food is too hot for the baby.

Organic sweet potatoes/yams are great as a first food for babies, since they are high in many vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin A, C, E, Potassium, Folic acid, among others), plus they are very tasty.
Before making the pure for my baby, I like to bake the sweet potatoes for about 40 min instead of boiling them, as boiling can leech out vitamins. I also add a bit of olive oil, which has many good properties and helps in keeping your baby “regular.” The final result and most important thing is that my baby loves it!
