Unstickabowl
Posted 3:13 PM on Wed-11-Jul-2012

I recently decided that if little miss one wanted to feed herself I should invest in one of those bowls that stick to the highchair to hopefully reduce the amount of food flying around the room.

 

So I went to the baby shop and found several different types and after pondering for awhile chose the one which promised to be the most sticky, basically unbeleivabowl! It was of couse the most expensive but never mind if it saves on carpet cleaning it would be worth it. A home I tried it on the bench and wow great! It works!! That is until you try to attach the bowl part to the bottom peice, instantly the suction is undone and it is loose, I tried it on various surfaces and it worked excellently until you put the bowl on top, this design unfortunately was made so you couldn't put it on the bench in one peice. Soooo back to the shop I went, and of course it worked perfectly for them, still they were kind and refunded it. Back to the drawing board.

 

While I was at the shop for the second time I decided to get another sort of drinking cup as her one leaves puddles all over the place, I chose one that said it wouldn't leak - it did leak. At the supermarket I found another brand  - it leaked.

 

Is it only me that has problems with products failing to do what they promise?

I found the Avent sippy bottles and cups (form Farmers) to not leak...

I'd love to know the brand name of that one MumBum. I have a sister in Oz, so I might see if she can get one of those ones from Clarks for me. thanks for that.

The bowl we got did stick, but he learned to unstick it so that was a big fat fail! We use a sipper bottle that was about $8 from Pac n Save, it works well until he bites through the teat then we just buy another one.
I'll try and find the brand names for you as it doesn't leak at all.

There is a mat under her highchair already as she is such a mucky pup and food goes EVERYWHERE! she wacks and grabs the spoon all the time but oh well, I guess one day she will grow out of it and in the meantime I will just keep cleaning :)

Don't worry, even when you do get a bowl to stick down (I got mine from the UK) they'll flick the food everywhere with their spoon, hands, etc. Put a mat down (get a plastic table cloth from Plastic Shop or $2 shop) and just go with the flow. They say them using their hands etc is a good experience (obviously not for your carpet!).
I tend not to buy baby utensils from supermarket as they are cheaper versions which do not work. I've bought drink bottles from them and they are hopeless. Worth getting ones like Avent from Farmers. The sippy bottles from Kathmandu are great (only get when half price though).

I have had the same problems with non leaky sippy cups being hard to suck. I tried it and it and even found it hard to suck, a big waste of money.

Yes Jopukeko, I forgot to add that I also brought one sippy cup that even I could hardly get anything out!

I always find the sippy cups that don't leak most kids can't use as they have to suck so hard to get it working.
