Any recommendations for non-toxic, PVC and phthalate-free bowls/plates for babies? I can't seem to find any safe dishware online. Would love it if the bowl/plate had suction, too. Thanks!

We foudn some at Target, that was marked pthlalate and PVC-free. I think One Step Ahead might have some with suction cups too, but they rarely work, in our experience.<br><br>
Good luck!

I remember reading an article about someone using the tiny pyrex bowls you can cook with and getting a <a href="http://http//www.poscentre.co.uk/pos-product-details.asp?catID=2&productTypeID=0&productSubTypeID=&productID=7535" target="_blank">doulbe sided suction cup</a>.

Glass custard cups are great for babies - some come with plastic lids, but the lids can be left off (food normally doesn't touch the lids anyway, so I don't think it's as big of a concern).<br>
Also, for a more unbreakable solution enemal is great (and I think the suction-cup idea would work for enamal too!). Enamel bowls/dishes can usually be found in camping/outdoor sections of department stores. I've even found enamel "espresso" cups that have a handle and are the perfect size for babies/toddlers.

How about this? <a href="http://www.novanatural.com/product.phtml?pr=4740&sec=660" target="_blank">http://www.novanatural.com/product.p...r=4740&sec=660</a><br><br>
No suction, but I agree they don't work very well anyway.<br><br>
Also, about using Pyrex - DH was feeding DD when she was a baby and she ended up shattering one by banging a rubber-tipped spoon on it. He didn't even know it broke until he saw the teeny shards on her fingers, mixed with food. (She was fine - we were very lucky she wasn't into eating until she was a lot older!)

Thanks for the replies. With regards to the suciton cup idea, would you have to glue it to the dishware? And enamel, how safe is it? Thanks!
