Not good for the self feeding baby
This dish was too small for my daughter and she had a hard time getting the food out. The spoon is shallow and you can’t spear food with the plastic fork. Regular Gerber toddler utensils work much better than these. Maybe it would work if you were spoon feeding purees. We had much more luck with the suction cup Boon bowl and still use them at 22 months.
This looks cute and neat. I expected the bowl is a bit bigger … but I guess this size is perfect for up to 9 months old baby.
Great for 12 mo old
Love this set. It’s heavy enough that my 12 mo old cannot tip it over easily and the spoon/fork is a perfect size for his little hands. I wish I could buy an extra set of utensils. The bowl’s rounded corners make it simple to get all of the food out so there is little to no waste.
I loved this bowl because I could feed Michael one handed. When we started solids he kept grabbing the spoon and putting food all over his face. Baby Dipper allowed me to grab his hand and still feed him because the bowl does not slip. It is also great because it is on an angle that narrows towards the end so it keeps the food in an easy to scoop area. It really made my life easier.
Great bowl for my 18 month old
My son is 18 months old and really likes to feed himself. He can eat finger food out of any bowl or plate. But frequently he eats yogurt, applesauce, pudding, or sweet potatoes which come in a “cup”. There is no way he could feed himself food from those little light weight plastic cups. It would just tip over. So, whenever my son is eating something like that, I always have to transfer the food to a bowl. Even though we have about 20 small bowls in the house, I always choose the Baby Dipper Bowl. It just works the best. This is the best bowl because it is heavy with a grippy bottom so it sits firmly planted on the table and doesn’t slide around. The shape of the bowl is great. The bowl may strike you as small but I think it holds the perfect amount of food. The sloped surface and the small size keeps the food “deep” making it easier for the baby to fill the spoon. If you put a 4 oz yogurt into a bigger regular bowl, the yogurt will spread out all over the sides of the bowl while baby is eating and it will be difficult for baby to scoop up. I absolutely LOVE the spoon. The spoon is just the right depth to hold the perfect amount of food. (Some baby spoons or too shallow and don’t hold anything. Some are too deep and the baby can’t get the food OUT of the spoon.) I’ll be honest, when my son was younger, I didn’t let him feed himself with this bowl because he threw it on the floor. I had to wait until he was a little older and more seriously interested in feeding himself and less interested in just throwing it on the floor. But now that he is 18 months old, we use this bowl twice a day. Of course, it still hits the floor once in a while. Luckily, it is a very sturdy little bowl that can take a beating.
