makes sure everyone around her knows it. It started with
the simple things like holding her bottle or on the rare times
she uses a pacifier I am no longer allowed to touch it. I
used to play with her and her toys but in the last few weeks
she has started to rip them out of my hands and give me
the "This is mine," glare so I know her things are now hands
off! Even when I read to her she now has to hold the book.
She is also a little observer and anything that we have she
has decided she needs as well. If I am reading a magazine she
needs to have one too, if I am on the computer she
needs to wail away on the keyboard, same goes for the
remote, the cell phone and anything I am eating. Feeding her
used to be stressful for she didn't want to eat now it is stressful
in a whole other way. She demands to feed herself. I do not
remember going through this with my son and I surely don't
remember him being this stubborn and independent at
6 months but she is. And I know it is going to only get worse.
I now have to take her baby food and put it at least
3 feet away or the whole meal with be her grunting and
wiggling and trying to reach the food. When I do make the
mistake of putting it to close the bowl is tipped in less then
a minute and I am scrubbing peaches off everything around
her. I also have to feed her with one hand now for she is so
busy trying to grab the food I need a free hand available just to
fend her off. I even went so far as to give her a spoon of
her own thinking I could outsmart a baby ( silly me) and she
would be so pleased that she had a spoon she would forget
the it needed food in it to be effective . Well, yes, she loves
the spoon but all that giving it to her did was encourage her
to double her efforts to reach the bowl. I needed something
I could set on just about any surface that won't slip and something
so easy to use that I only need one hand so I can play
defensive linebacker with the other one and block Rowan's
plays. Sounds like I am dreaming doesn't it? Nope! Mom
found Baby Dipper, the coolest bowl out there!
Baby Dipper is a bowl that was invented by a Mom who
has the same issues as I do but only times 2! That is right,
this Mom has 2 sets of twins and I shiver with fear at the
very thought of Rowan as part of a set and bow humbly to
this Mom's feet that she survived the ordeal! She needed
a bowl that she could use with only one hand for she was
feeding two and it had to be as close to an automatic feeder
as she could make it for with two hungry tike's vying for attention
at the same time it had to be so simple you could use it
with your eyes closed! This bowl is fantastic! It has a rubber
base that is perfect for non-slipping and is very design makes
it perfect for use with only one free hand. It is in a triangle with
a slanted interior kinda like a in ground swimming pool so
you can not only rest the spoon you can knock off the excess
with out having to run it on the edge like a normal bowl. It is
see through so you know how much more you have to coax
baby to eat with out having to pick the bowl up and swirl the
contents around to get an idea of what's left. Even the spoon
is angled to fit perfectly in the bowl and rests securely for
I do not know how many times I have tried to rest the
spoon in a bowl of food and the whole thing fell in and I am
left digging the spoon out of whatever goo, er, I mean fine
cuisine I was feeding Rowan!
phthalate-free and meets the CPSIA standards. It is
also Microwave safe and holds 4 ounces. It is also
the last Baby bowl you will ever buy for it is that good!
Now I look at all the other ones in my Kitchen Cupboard

toss the rest! As A review Blogger I get the chance to try
