We got the "Baby Safe Feeder" which is available HERE
. It was suposedly invented by a father whose baby almost choked to death on a teething biscuit.
We haven't given our daughter solids yet (she is just now about to be 6 months), but she loves
ice in it. For a week or so, it was the only thing that soothed her teething pain. Then both of her bottom teeth came through, and now she enjoys ice in the feeder as a treat (usually while we're eating supper) instead of as a teething solace. But I can imagine that soon she will be getting her top teeth... and I bet that she will need it again.
I don't plan to feed most of her foods to her in this, but to use it with frozen fruits and ice for teething and as a fun distraction while we eat out or want to linger over dinner. Gail seems fine with it!
I did try sucking on ice through it, to see what it was like. Seemed pleasant enough, and somewhat soothing. I don't think I'd mind eating with it, if I was in her place.
Obviously, I don't know much about cleaning, since I've just used ice thus far!!
But, the bag of this one can
come out of the holder, so that should help facilitate cleaning when I do go to solids.
