Baby Safe Feeder

I try not to give out parenting advice. I find that similar to a comic book collector/Star Trek fanatic dishing dating advice. But, with that being said, I have to recommend, what I find to be one of the greatest inventions ever, the Baby Safe Feeder.

I did not have this blog when Maxfield was using the Baby Safe Feeder, but now that Wyatt is teething and he is eating more solid foods I feel the need to promote this device. (I am not getting paid by the Baby Safe Feeder people ((but if they wanted to they could)). But this cool little thing is awesome. It is a screwtop mesh net that fits onto a "ring". You put fruits or vegetables into the net and screw the net onto the ring thing. The kid can enjoy the food without the fear of him choking. Here is a picture of Wyatt enjoying grapes. I know Max used to love watermelon and strawberries in the thing. Very Cool.

Also known as the BabyNasty Feeder if you stick a banana in that thing. We learned that lesson the hard way!

Effie said...

that looks like such a good idea!

I too am a happy user of this product and ain't gittin' paid for sayin this:

and back to normal
When they're teething, try frozen fruit (blueberries, strawberries... you can get them in the frozen foods section)... my daughter LOVED them

My youngest is five now, and I can't BELIEVE the things they've invented since he was a baby!

That is pretty darn cool.

Mainline Mom said...

I saw one of those in the store the other day and wondered about it. Glad to get the recommendation.

Michelle said...

thanks for the recommendation. My new grandbaby will be using hers in a few more months...the things they invent AFTER my kids grow up!

Slinger said...

We have one of these as well. it works wonders, but can also be VERY messy, depending what you put in there.

Oh, The Joys said...

Huh. A woman in my moms group put us all OFF those things... she didn't like it.

Eeeew! Messy! Messy! Icky wittle handsies! Sticky! No touchy! NO TOUCHY!

Yeah, I'm thinking NO on the whole slobbery chewed-up food remains dribbling out of that handy little mesh net and all over the damn place!

Um, not that there's anything WRONG with that...

The Kept Woman said...

Damn, I wish I held onto this after reading Jeff's advice. The Duckling simply laughed at it and Peanut used it but, as Mybestinvest mentioned, we used bananas...ewwwwwwwie gross...never could quite get it all clean...

Kami said...

We used one of those!!

I watched you use something like that. It was on your third Martini... The olives got all caught up in the bev nap. You gnawed on that for about 5 minutes.

The only bda thing about those things is cleaning them. They are nasty.

Ice cubes in the hot weather is good too...just a little drippy.

What a great thing! Thanks for spreading the word, Bill!

Why Didn't I Think Of That!

RZ,

To his landing PAD.

My littlest learned her love of strawberries with that thing. We always stuck ours in the dishwasher and never had a problem cleaning it!

Stepping Over the Junk said...

My kids never had that but I will never forget my first day as a nanny years ago and the kid had one of these. I was well, fairly grossed out, despite the nutritional and entertainment value of it

Jay said...

Lucy brought one home for our baby, and I thought it was the weirdest thing. We tried a banana first, too. Haven't used it since. Guess I'll have to get it out and try it sometime soon.

SoozieQ said...

I got one (or two?) of these for my Niece and she loved them too! We'd put frozen strawberries in there and she go to town on them.

Good grief - this just has to be one of the most pointless, over-designed products ever. What is wrong with just cutting things up into small pieces until they are od enough to cope with the obvious "hazard" of big pieces?

sarahgrace said...

Okay...I have a question... I've used these with my boys too and have to relate to the "babynasty feeder" comment- how do you get these things clean?

I got my Godson one of those thinking it would be the best thing since "sliced bread". It seemed to have been more trouble than it was worth.

Then again is mother was adement about putting Bananas in there which are hard to get out. At 6mos (he's 8mos now) he acted as if he didn't even want to try it. But Kaleb has never been on for putting things in his mouth. But it's a great concept nonetheless.
