My mom just emailed me that my aunt makes her own babyfood and freezes it and sticks it in this special net bag thingie and her son sucks on the net bag. What the heck is this thing? She referred to it as a "frozen food net pacifier" or something. I vaguely remember seeing something about these on one of these forums...<br><br>
is she out of her gourd or does such a thing really exist? Thanks!

I have both- I liked this one better (easier to get open without pinching your fingers! but baby still can't get it open) The one mentioned in the PP has a clamp type latch, the one below unscrews.<br><br><a href="http://www.babysafefeeder.com/" target="_blank">http://www.babysafefeeder.com/</a><br><br>
Pixie LOVED cold apple slices in it when she was teething.<br><br>
We also used this little food mill:<br><a href="http://shop.nurturecenter.com/kifomigrwito.html" target="_blank">http://shop.nurturecenter.com/kifomigrwito.html</a><br><br><br>

We had one of those thingies, but Dylan was never really into it. I couldn't blame him... gnawing fruit through a bag wouldn't have appealed to me either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Dito!<br><br>
My first son loved to suck ripe pears out of them, my second one didn't want anything to do with strained food.<br>
I'll still get some for this one when it's time, I think they're a great idea!

Those things were dad invented, which I think is cool.<br><br>
I do have one in case, like Pixie, my babe likes cold, hard fruits. But otherwise, I don't plan to use it as it's sort of a hindrance. Baby is just fine eating small chunks of soft things by spoon or fingers, you know?

We bought a 2-pack of the babysafefeeders and DD never liked them. And, avoid bananas at all costs. Ewww...they are so tough to clean out and then it turns the mesh black.<br><br>
DD always ended up turning it around and gnawing on the plastic ring that is meant to be the handle. So I gave up trying. It just wasn't worth trying to clean them out.<br><br>
But I could see how it could be used with homemade baby food frozen. Maybe I'll try that with this LO.

I used one with DS and homemade pea baby food froze into ice cube trays and served it frozen. He loved it for teething! For DD I gave her frozen organic peas right out the freezer. But I might have to get another one of those too.

I got one for my DD and she never liked it. It seemed more trouble than it was worth. But, she wasn't really interested in food until she was well over a year. So maybe that had a lot to do with it too.

Yes. Yes, yes, yes.<br><br>
I don't *love* the idea of my kids chewing on plastic or nylon (or whatever the mesh bags are made of), but my kids both love them. Still. At four and two, I let them suck on ice cubes in them, as I think they're too young for ice cubes (choking hazard).

I never used those net feeders. Didn't really see the point.<br><br>
I made all of DD's babyfood. It was so much fun, and we were able to give her such a great diversity of fruits and veggies that she never could have gotten in a jar (mango, papaya, kiwi, eggplant, zucchini, you name it). I just used my blender and froze in ice cube trays then transfered to labeled freezer bags. Never bought any special equipment or anything since it was so easy to do with what I already had in my kitchen. The ice cube trays are great because they are a perfect baby-sized portion!

We always used the mesh things for teething, but I only ever put an ice cube in them. At 22 months, DS still uses it quite regularly (it's a saving grace right now, as those last four molars are AWFUL!).<br><br>
I never really thought of it as a pacifier, since it doesn't really serve the same purpose. It was soothing to him, but not in a pacifier kind of way. It was soothing in the "wow, this really makes my gums feel a ton better" way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><br><br>
As far as baby food goes, we never did baby food with DS. We didn't start solids until 10ish months, and he wasn't interested in eating them until about 13 months, so we just did soft "table" foods from the beginning (he wasn't eating straight off of our plates, but I guess they were technically table foods since they weren't mashed/strained/whathaveyou).
