Aside from the obvious snarky comments I could make, isn't feeding solids meant to teach them how to move food to the back of their throats, swallow, learn to chew, etc? Especially for bottle fed babies who don't get the jaw workout that breastfed ones do? And, (aside from serious developmental issues) if the child needs to have the solids in a bottle then they are not ready for solids!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Sadly, it is merely a matter of the market responding to what parents are already doing. A LOT of people introduce baby to solids by adding cereal to formula, and as sad as this is, I don't see it as much different.

There can be a time and place for this product, and for that I'm glad it's available for those who need it. But for the majority of babies, it's probably not needed and just another "gadget" for parents.

OMG-my head just exploded. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I guess for ff babies with reflux it's okay, unfortunately this product will be used by parents who foolishly think feeding a brand new baby cereal will make them sleep longer. Gross.

yeah an ex friend of mine used those with his kids and when we were watching the kids for the weekend his nearly one year old daughter didnt know what a spoon was for since that was the only way she had ever eaten (note- there were no disablitlies or anything like that, she thought we were crazy trying to put a sppon in her mouth)<br><br>
my mom calls those "force feeders" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

those have ben around forever. I remmber my babysitter back in 1979 using them to feed her baby. I think the fact that they are not all over the place by now is a testement to how little they are used. Most stores don't even stock them any more. i am not sure if they were ever that popular even.

Wow...I was just reading something by the AAP that says to never ever use those. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:
