The bowl comes with a cute little fork and spoon that matches and fits nicely into the corners of the bowl.Baby Dipper Bowl has to say about her creation:
I was thinking that to accomplish one-handed feeding, the bowl should not slide around on the table and it should aid in the collection of the baby food. A non-slip bottom surface would keep it from sliding. A sloped interior surface and a spoon-shaped collection point would help gather the food down to the last bite. Also, adding to those features, vertical sides would help push food onto the spoon and transparent sides would allow the food to be seen easily by both the parent and the child. The bowl I designed has proven to make feeding much easier for parents and even for toddlers trying to spoon-feed themselves. The patented Baby Dipper bowl is truly unique in the marketplace and hopefully will help parents everywhere.My experience with this product:
-I love the rubber grip on the bottom this is great for when you have to mix rice or oatmeal in the morning and you are holding a baby in one arm and have a toddler pulling on your legs and need the extra help. The rubber grip keeps the bowl in place so that you can mix your cereal together well.
-The grip is also handy for when you are trying to feed your baby and need the extra hand. Z is now at the stage where he has to grab for the spoon and the food. He knows his food and wants it faster than you can give it to him. I have had times where I wasn't using this bowl and he stuck his hand in the food...messy! So with this bowl you can keep it on the table, out of reach, and have the extra free hand to keep your baby from grabbing the spoon and flinging food every where. Plus its nice for when you are trying to feed baby and you have your toddler on your lap and your using one had to keep him from falling and the other hand has the spoon...where does the bowl go? On the table and you don't have to worry about the bowl sliding everywhere while your trying to get food on the spoon. It stays put.
-One thing that this bowl has is a higher end and a lower end. This is to help let gravity do what its ment to do. The food should slide down the slope into the lower end where their spoon fits nicely and can scoop up the food. I found this works well with stage 1 and 2 foods because they are runnier, the oatmeal and rice cereal, depending on how thick you make it might not do this and you do have to do a little scraping of the dish to get the food. I haven't tried stage 3 foods yet with Z so I'm not sure how well they would do with the slope.
-This is also a nice bowl to have for your toddler when they are eating food. It stays in place (if they allow it) and the slop helps them with scooping up the food with out using their fingers.
-One thing I didn't like about this set was the spoon. I found it was really deep for my baby when he was starting out eating and that I needed to use a flatter spoon that would fit better into his mouth. The spoon is better fit for a bigger baby child that has the eating skill figured out.
