Baby Dipper Review & Giveaway



I love top quality items that work.  I don't like the idea of people paying more for something that just doesn't even work like it says it will.  So I've never splurged on any "fancy" eating utensils or bowls for my daughter.  I figured.. I didn't have one growing up and I learned to self-feed just fine.  But, I have to admit.. when I first saw the baby dipper I really wanted to get one for her.  But again.. didn't think I NEEDED it.

So I decided to contact Baby Dipper and see if they would be interested in doing a review and giveaway.  I didn't hear anything back.  So I actually forgot all about it.  But then I received an email from Barbara (of Baby Dipper) asking if I'd be interested in doing a review and offer up a giveaway.  At this time my daughter was about 16 months old.  I didn't know how much use we'd get out of it, but I said sure.

Barbara shipped my Baby Dipper so quick I don't even think it took 2 days to receive it.  Now, THAT is some quality service!  It just happened to come right before lunch too! So I washed it up while K was eating her main part of her lunch and then I put some applesauce in it. 


Kylee does great with a fork.  She can stab food and shove it in her mouth with the best of them.  However, she tends to get frustrated with spoons.  She didn't really have the scooping method down and she used a spoon much like she used a fork. (Stabbing everything.. or at least attempting to...)  So I didn't know how well this was going to work either.  Was I surprised though! She did GREAT with the baby dipper!  After a few tries and some trial and error.. she was scooping up her applesauce!!



So what exactly is SO special about this bowl? What about do I LOVE so much?  Well let me tell you...

It's BPA-Free
Lead-Free
Phthalate-Free!!

It's very easy to clean

The non-slip bottom keeps it from sliding all around (on tables and highchair trays!) and you don't have to worry about suction cups or anything annoying like that to keep it in place!

Feeding baby one handed and not having to chase a bowl across the table!

The sloped interior surface is great for getting every last bite out and the spoon-shaped collection point is wonderful for keeping those precious bites on the spoon!  Thank you for that, Barbara Schantz!

Sounds perfect, right?  Well.. I do love our Baby Dipper dearly! 

If I could make any changes though..  I would like to see Baby Dipper offered in more color options and I wish there were "toddler sized" utensils as an option.  We don't use the fork because it's just too small for my daughter.  Other than that.. the Baby Dipper is perfect!

SO.. how would you like to win your very own Baby Dipper bowl?  Barbara has been so nice to offer one of you a bowl of your own!
