All mommy’s dread the end of a meal: cleaning! Babies not only feel like they have to eat their food by them selves but they have to share! With mommy, the dog, the cat, the chair, the floor, the ceiling…the walls down the hall (how did the food get there?!).
I have two boys. Only my oldest, A., eats by himself. He still loves making messes… specially dumping his milk on the food he is no going to eat! J is still content with being fed but he is starting to want to give the spoon a try, he already pretend-fed me once!
This is what meals may look at my house (and I am pretty sure that at most of your homes too):
I had the opportunity of reviewing the Baby Diner. I was so excited. I thought my days of cleaning messes would be over…
We gave it a try a couple of times. The first time we tried it we had stir fry for dinner that night. The Baby Diner did not work. It stuck to the high chair tray perfectly but once we tried to put on the hot dish it took a while of pushing down for it to stick. Not even 5 minutes later the plate flew out of the kitchen and onto my carpet…leaving yummy rice all over it! I am pretty sure it was because the bowl was too hot.
Last night we gave it a try again. J got so frustrated when it was his turn to try it!
He even had to call in for back up! A joined in the forces and it seemed to hold up!
J ate and then A sat down to eat his food. It all went well. The Baby diner stuck to the table during the whole meal:
Until A finished his Mac & Cheese and handed me his plate with the Baby diner attached to it!
I think it didn’t work for us because the tray of our highchair is a bit old and bent. I am pretty sure that if you use it over a straight surface it is going to work wonders.
This might be perfect for little kids who are just starting to eat by themselves. J, who’s 10 months old, will keep using it. A, 2 years old, is not going to use it anymore since he is too smart for his own good, I mean, he figured out how to take the BabyDiner off, right?!
