Babies grow up fast. At 6 months and onwards, they could take their first steps towards meals from a bowl rather than milk from a bottle. However, it probably won’t be an easy transition. They don’t always have the patience to learn and they can’t even understand why they need to. Even the well-behaved ones won’t have the motor skills to feed themselves. Parents will have to be ready for it. Using a suction bowl can help tremendously.
No More Spills During Meals
Feeding time can be a struggle with parents trying to coax their child to eat and the little ones having none of it. They might even move around so vigorously that they knock the bowl off the table. That kind of mess is hard to clean. Suction bowls can be attached firmly to the top surface of a table so that the contents can stay inside no matter what commotion is happening outside. This leads to less waste and lower stress levels.
Quick Release for Parents
Of course, the attachment is only temporary. If the parents want to remove it from the table after meals, then they can do so using the release tabs or other mechanisms depending on the product design. This takes a bit of coordination so you can be sure that you can only the adults can get the bowl off. Babies might try but they surely won’t succeed.
Dishwasher Safe for Ease of Cleaning
After the meal, you can just place the suction bowl in the dishwasher. Put it on the top rack and wash it along with the other dinnerware while you relax. You won’t have to spend time with manual cleaning and scrubbing. So enjoy your favorite show or take a nap because you deserve it.
BPA-free for Safe Use
Be sure to get suction bowl products for babies by respected brands. You can be sure that these have been tested for any toxic contaminants and have passed with flying colors. The product pages will show that they are BPA-free so you don’t have to be concerned about harmful chemicals leaking into the food.
Microwave Safe for Heating
If you want to reheat the contents of the bowl, then go ahead and place it in the microwave. A minute is usually sufficient to increase the temperature of the bowl without making the food uncomfortably hot for babies. Try to get a taste for a quick check before giving it to the baby.
