Baby Dipper Review and Giveaway!

The shape of the bowl is very ergonomic. The inside of the bowl is smoothly contoured, responding well to the size and shape of the utensils. The blue rubber rim on the bottom allows me to actually place the bowl close enough to Baby D that I can feed him without him being able to topple it with one of his Karate Kid-esque swipes.

He tried, but it wouldn't budge. Had a normal bowl been this close during a feeding, I would be wearing chicken noodle surprise. Surprise! It'll cost $95 to replace that Brooks Brothers shirt Mom!

The spoon was deep enough to hold a healthy portion for our Chubbman. When he starts faux-chomping the air, you know he didn't get enough from the last spoonful. Not the case here. He even dipped his upper lip in to make sure he got to the bottom of the spoon.
After a few futile tries at pushing the bowl in an attempt to "accidentally" tip it over, Baby D is sitting nicely with his hands on the table.

The utensils are small enough that Baby D could easily grab them with his cute, meaty little paws. The rubber helped him hang onto it even when his hands were made slippery from the food. (I said he couldn't tip the bowl over, I didn't say it prevented him from dipping his fingers in it!)
Ok, he's got the wrong end going on here. But, he gets the concept of self-feeding. The Baby Dipper makes it easier for him to attempt self-feeding because the bowl doesn't slide around and the utensils are small and very graspable.
Look! Just one chicken noodle escapee. Before the Baby Dipper, we had a mini Jackson Pollock on our hands. Sweet potatoes being his preferred medium and the high chair table and chair cover his canvas.

Because of its extreme ease-of-use and sturdy construction, I would recommend the Baby Dipper to any family with infants or toddlers. I would especially recommend it for oft-multitasking working mothers and mothers with multiples. This is fitting because the creator of the Baby Dipper, Barbara Schantz, created the bowl after struggling to feed her twins. Necessity is truly the mother of invention! 

I'll be picking upon a couple of these for my expecting friends as well. So they won't have to go through the "getting slimed" motherhood rite-of-passage. Or, for the sake of selfish amusement, should I wait until they do?
