Posted September 30th, 2011 in Baby Feeding, Personal Care and Health by admin

Munchkin Soft-Tip Infant Spoon

Shared By: Molly M. from Chicago, IL.

Secret Tip: Munchkin’s soft-tipped spoons are safe for little mouths. They’re really cheap, too.

Find It Here: $4.99 for a 6-pack from Amazon

Why You’ll Love It: The Munchkin soft-tip spoons are easy on baby’s mouth and mom’s hand. The end you hold is ergonomic like a fancy toothbrush, while the business end is soft and pliable for little mouths. The six-pack is a rainbow of bright colors for curious eyes and of course, it’s BPA-free and dishwasher safe. You are the best judge for when baby is ready for these spoons, but the manufacturer says they are ideal for babies three months and up.

What Molly Has To Say: “These are cheap so I’ve bought a bunch and my son likes the bright colors. The spoon itself is really soft and the entire ‘bowl’ of the spoon is soft so it’s easy to get in there. They are pretty long, too, which is good for scraping food out of the bottom of a jar.”

Shared By: Becky F. from Chicago, IL.

Secret Tip: The Modular Drying Rack from The First Years is a vertical drying rack that helps keep all of your various bottles and cups organized and dry.

Find It Here: $11.54 from Amazon

Why You’ll Love It: The First Years created this Modular Drying Rack to help corral all the plastic bottles, nipples, various baby consumption parts in a space-saving drying rack. Becky tells us it is sturdy and works well even though it’s relatively cheap. Bonus: it is dishwasher safe.

What Becky Has To Say: “There are a lot of little prongs on this that I use to keep my baby’s bottles and things drying. It is relatively small despite all the junk I hang on it, and it fits in one of the taller lower cupboards in our kitchen. When it gets gunky I just put it in the dishwasher.”

Podee Baby Bottle: Upright Bottle Feeder, As Seen On Oprah:

Posted June 28th, 2011 in Baby Feeding, Personal Care and Health by admin

The Podee Baby Bottle

Shared By: Brandi B. from Mays Landing, NJ and the awesome Life with 5 monkies blog.

Secret Tip: Podee Bottles provide a great option for hands-free feeding while parents of multiples are calling it a life-saver.

Find It Here: www.podee.com or $13.99 from amazon

Why You’ll Love It: If you’re looking for a hands-free feeding system that allows you to feed your baby in an upright feeding position, Brandi shares with us the Podee bottles are the way to go. It is believed that feeding a baby in an upright position as opposed to horizontal can help cut down on gas build-up, reduce colic and minimize ear infections. The feeding system comes with an 8-ounce BPA-free bottle and all the necessary parts allowing you to use if for water, juice, milk, formulas or breast milk. It was seen on Oprah when she helped a mom of multiples during their feeding time on her show. Tip: Reviewers say it helps to squeeze the nipple once or twice before giving the bottle to baby to push air down and bring the liquid up.

What Brandi Has To Say: “These bottles are a must have for any parent of multiples! Not only do they get your arms back to being your arms, but they allow you to be able to make that much needed eye contact with both babies. These bottles are just awesome. While they take a bit to get use to, both for you and babies, in the end you will be glad you went out got them.”

Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder: She Calls It: “Peaceful Dinner in a Net”

Posted May 26th, 2011 in Baby Feeding, Personal Care and Health by admin

Shared By: Erin G from Charleston, NC

Secret Tip: Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder allows a baby to eat fresh foods without the choking risk.

Find It Here: $7.69 for a 2-pack from www.diapers.com

Why You’ll Love It: Babies chew, suck and savor only the smallest, swallowable bits that come through this “net,” giving them a safe way to eat some whole foods (age appropriate) without the risk of choking. A handy ring lets your child hold it herself (tip: use a pacifier holder to prevent it from getting dropped on the floor). One customer reviewer says “This makes a great teether…I put ice chips in it and gave it to my son and it soothed his gums!” BPA free, dishwasher safe and ideal for babies 6 months and older.

What Erin Has To Say: “We always say they should market it as a “peaceful dinner in a net.” It is great for teething babies who can’t quite feed themselves finger foods yet, but are old enough to sit in their high chair during dinner. For weeks we had awful dinners listening to Jamesie scream and pound his high chair tray, trying to shovel baby food into his mouth that he clearly did not want to eat. Then we put an apple slice in one of these nets and it occupied him for 30 minutes while we ate in peace and actually got to talk to each other.”
