Whether you puree feed or do baby led weaning, you need cutlery at some point, and I found starting my one year old on cutlery earlier rather than later was a lot simpler than trying to get my three year old started on it. I guess they get used it it sooner and it helps with hand eye coordination, or something. And each feeding method benefits from bibs too - or at least their clothes do.
Tesco My Babys Bibs* come in packs of two and are reduced from £3.14 to £1 - not bad at 50p each.
Tesco Loves Baby Yummy First Spoons* come in packs of 5, and they're different colours. They also have more than half off, as they were £2.15 and are now 85p. That's pretty good value.
