I wish I would have had this for the other 3 kids. The baby loves it! I don't even know what you call it. This contraption has a mesh bag and you drop food into it and let the baby chew on it. They get the food with no choking. The Baby loves cantaloupe, likes grapes and tolerates raw sweet potatoes. I even stuck a piece of cracker in there. She polished it off but was pretty messy. The other awesome thing about it is that it keeps The Baby occupied for about 30 minutes. She doesn't even cry when I leave the room! Maybe I'll get some spring cleaning done.
