The Baby Dipper Review & Giveaway!

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**

I have been away the past few days for a little family relaxation time, but am back now and writing again! Today’s post is an opportunity to introduce you to a baby product Eli and I got to try out last week. This is the Baby Dipper bowl and spoon set…

One of the major highlights of the Baby Dipper product is the non-slip base. This allows for one-handed feeding of infants, and eases self-feeding of toddlers. As our meal times usually include trying to fill the plates of three other boys, including chopping food into manageable bite sizes, and trying to feed ourselves as well as Eli and it can often be hectic. The thought of not having to hold a bowl with one hand while scrapping the edges interested me. So we gave it a go.

This is the Baby Dipper we received in the mail, alongside the jar of stage 2 baby food that Eli normally eats.
As you can see, I was pleased to find that the bowl holds the entirety of the jar. I like that I do not have to stop half way through a meal to refill the bowl. This leads to an inevitable screaming spurt by baby who doesn’t comprehend that most baby bowls only hold a minuscule amount and must be replenished.
Eli is nine months old and we have yet to truly venture into the world of self-feeding. He does a little bit of grabbing cereal or fruit puffs to eat from time to time, but nothing like his normal mealtime items. So I took the opportunity to let go a little and let him try out the Baby Dipper.

I am an experienced mom, Eli being the fourth son and all. There have been many first feedings. I really enjoyed this one for several reasons. One is the Baby Dipper spoon is designed to not fall into the bowl full of food. This keeps Mom from having to dig out a food covered utensil from a pool of baby food. I really liked this feature, although of course Eli managed to turn around the spoon and dip the handle. But it was quickly remedied by Eli turning the spoon around and licking it off!
Which brings me to another feature I enjoy. The Baby Dipper spoon is very easy for chubby little hands to manipulate. The curved handle, the grip, and the spoon itself were all very helpful for Eli. I have never had a baby be able to feed himself half a bowl of food the first time. Most times the spoon has been totally tossed aside and not used. Infants and toddlers are usually easily frustrated with eating utensils. But I love that he was able to not only get food on the spoon the first feeding, but the angle of the handle allowed him to get the food into his mouth, not on his tray or bib.

I think the sides of the bowl were a great help as well. They are gently sloped towards the bottom, and into the front corner. This helps direct the food into a deep well like area, instead of spread out over a large circular bottom. This allowed Eli and myself to easily get all of the food out of the bowl without a lot of scraping and moving of the food.
Back to the non-slip bottom. It is true to advertising. Not only was I able to feed Eli one handed, but when he self-fed it did not tip over AT ALL. This included tons of exploring with fingers and hands, as well of a lot of pushing and manipulating with the spoon. In the end, when I cleaned off the tray and bowl in the sink I just sprayed both items down with the sink sprayer prior to washing them. The bowl was on the tray, and even at a 45 degree angle while spraying with water it stayed put!
Overall, both baby and I really enjoyed the product. We found many features unique to this product and found their claims true! But not only do I like the product, I also get to give one away to my readers!

I also sell them in my retail store.
