Review: Baby Dipper (Giveaway!)


OK, this is the COOLEST product for us Moms. We already feel like we should have three or four arms just to get anything done, right? The Baby Dipper Bowl is a non-slip feeding bowl with a specially designed spoon so you can actually feed your little one with one hand.

I was a little skeptical the first time I heard the Baby Dipper was non-slip. I was reading another Mom blog where it was being talked about, and I hadn't seen a picture yet. My first thought was that it had one of those ugly rubber rings that stuck to the tray of the high chair. Can you say EW? Luckily I kept reading and saw the picture. I met Barbara, mom of two sets of twins (yes, two sets!) and inventer of the Baby Dipper on Twitter, and when she asked if I wanted to review the Baby Dipper, I was excited!

The Baby Dipper is a triangular shape, and has a non slip bottom to it, so it won't skid all over the place. It is also transparent, so you can see how much food is left in it if your little one is feeding herself.

The curving of the spoon allows you to put it down against the bowl without it flicking food all over the place, or worse yet, falling off the high chair or table onto the floor (towards the eager pets if it's my house! lol) The spoon fits perfectly into the corner - which slopes down to one point, so you don't have to slide the spoon all over the bowl to fill it! You won't have to pick the bowl up to get the last few spoonfuls.

Now, we don't really use the microwave around here - in fact, it's unplugged on top of the fridge right now - but this bowl is microwave safe. You could simply place plastic wrap on top of any leftovers and re-warm it easily in the Baby Dipper (less dishes! just don't forget to let it cool!!!)

It holds 4 ounces, so it's just the perfect size for a jar of baby food, or a couple of defrosted cubes of homemade food. It's also a good investment in that it can grow with your child - you don't need to just use it for feeding an infant. This is perfect for a toddler to learn to use how to feed themselves with!

The only catch is that it's not dishwasher safe. That's not a problem around here, but I know some folks like the convenience. (But you'd have to have at least 2 sets of the Baby Dipper if you only run your dishwasher once a day, so look at it that way?)

Hey hun its me Shannon!
With Tristan eating some baby foods now this would be great!

I like how you can get all the food practically out of the corners.

Hey this product looks awesome! I just had a second and have a very active toddler to boot! Could totally use the extra hand! Thanks for the giveaway.

Jon and Lauren Swinson said...

If it stays place, I need it. My little guy dumps his over all the time...and I have a very eager puppy whose more than willing to clean up. :)

I love the shape. IT is a must have!

EllyBean said...

I like how the bowl has a non slip base.

caseydeuce said...

YAYYYY Non slip!!! Thats a huge wonderful feature!!

rebecca said...

I was all set to say I liked the triangular shape, and I do, but that was before I noticed that the inside is contoured!!! That is so cool, so that all the food slides down and is easy to reach. Wow. I would love this for my almost ten month old!

Liz said...

I love hearing another mom tell me that it's actually slip free! How awesome. I bought bowls that were definitely not (even though they told me they were).

Susan said...

Genius! The sight was great--I like that it has the rubber bottom, and also that the bowl actually contours to the spoon.

Kristin said...

i like that cute baby in the high chair on their home page. SO cute!

I also agree with the first poster, I like the triangle shape so you can get the food out easily.

okaat said...

I like that its so easy for a child to use. Its easy to get at all the food because of the shape. I also like the look of the design. It looks nice and is practical.

Nancy Sabina said...

Well that's just genius! I've had the same struggles she has. I don't have twins, but my boys are just 13 months apart so I was always trying to do 5 things at once. Man would this make my life easier with the next baby!

Kaycee said...

I LOVE that you can feed your baby with ONE hand! I cant even imagine! My other hand is always doing something else and this would be great!

lmsunshine said...

I like that you don't have to tip the bowl to get the last spoonful out.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I love that she created the product out of necessity, and it was from having twins and trying to feed them... love the product!

FayeFaye said...

its a great shape, which means no more tipping the bowl and scraping the last bit of food up

thanks !!

id love to win :)

Bailey's Leaf said...

I love that they say that you don't have to chase around the bowl and the bowl around the table.

And no, I didn't find anything particularly lovely at the thrift that day. I know that I found a book, hubs a pair of pants, but I can't recall what else. Definitely not worth the 133.00 that it cost for me to have the tire replaced.

BTW, the saga continues on in tomorrows post. Feel free to come on back! :)

meghan said...

This bowl would not only be great for my 8 month old, but also for adults with limited mobility. Both for feeding themselves and others! The plain blue isn't too "babyish" though the spoon may have to be different.

MelissaT said...

I like the non skid base

jenny said...

wow please enter me in for this it well looks realy neet and well i realy could use it thanks oh i all so got you on my feed list too

PisecoMom (Mom's Marbles) said...

My goodness, it's so unique, I don't know what to say! I do love that it's transparent so you can tell at a glance how much is left.

Stacey @ satcygirl.com said...

I love that these bowls are designed to help guide the food onto the spoon or fork! So helpful!

Smiles Across Miles said...

I love that the spoon fits into the corner of the bowl

Michelle said...

One thing I like is how it grows with the child; my son is 11 months and in that stage where he's wanting to feed himself more and more - this looks like something wonderful he could learn on!

Celeste said...

I think it is great how this bowl stays in place while your child eats.

The spoon fits in the lower corner of the bowl.

I love the fact that it looks like you won't get food all over your fingers trying to scoop up the baby food. What a great idea

Sarah said...

I think it's great that the spoon fits into the corner of the bowl. I think it's odd that they list as a "plus" the fact that the "bowl is transparent for easy viewing of food". Can't I just see the food from the great big open top of the bowl?? Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!

Jaime said...

I like that this product was created by parents of multiples like myself. It would be great to have several of these to use with my triplets and if you can really do it with one hand, I could feed two at a time! Woo-hoo!

Sandra said...

I definitely like the non-slip feature of the design.

Aila said...

I love that you can actually reach the bottom corner of the bowl! I know I'm cheap, but I hate leaving that last little bit in there!

Molly C. said...

I love the non slip base. With my active baby, we really need this!

Godesseablu said...

I like the website and I read the story about Barbera. I like that she has twins because my mom did also and I know what a struggle that is, so thats quite a woman, and for her to create something like this is amazing also. Congratz on that, this bowl will make life easier for many women. Thanks, Godesseablu@msn.com

mom2natnkatncj said...

What a great looking invention. My almost 15 month old son likes to take the spoon out of my hand to try to feed himself. Getting too independent for my own good. Anyways, this looks like it would be a great tool to help him learn to feed himself.

I love this product! reallY!! How wonderful it is to be able to feed the baby with one hand while Im reading to the other or whatever I like that this has a non skid bottom and that the inside is slanted so that the food easily gets on the spoon. I also like the the sides are clear so you can see when the food is almost gone.
