While recently visiting my friend who is a first-time mother, one thing she raved about and wishes she would have invented herself is this mesh fruit feeder:
Her little guy is 7 months old, just starting to teethe, and loves fresh fruit!
Rather than trying to puree everything for him, she discovered this mesh contraption -- and baby Charlie goes to town on his favorite fruits (thanks also to the melon baller, another "thank god this exists" for my friend). More than just good for eating, this fruit feeder seems to entertain for long stretches of time, too.
You can purchase the Baby Safe Feeder directly from the company here for $6.25.
Anyone else a fan?
