Win a Fabulous Baby Dipper Bowl!


You know a product is going to be great when it’s designed by a mom. I recently confirmed this when I discovered the Baby Dipper bowl, which is a perfect example of Mom Ingenuity in action. Invented by a mother of two sets of young twins, it was her solution to the problem of trying to feed her big family -- while keeping one hand free and her floors clean!

Barbara Schantz, inventor of the Baby Dipper bowl, describes how she came up with her fabulous idea: “I was thinking that to accomplish one-handed feeding, the bowl should not slide around on the table, and it should aid in the collection of the baby food. A non-slip bottom surface would keep it from sliding. A sloped interior surface and a spoon-shaped collection point would help gather the food down to the last bite. Also, adding to those features, vertical sides would help push food onto the spoon and transparent sides would allow the food to be seen easily by both the parent and the child. The bowl I designed has proven to make feeding much easier for parents and even for toddlers trying to spoon-feed themselves. The Baby Dipper bowl is truly unique in the marketplace and hopefully will help parents everywhere.”

Barbara was kind enough to send me one of her bowls, and my boys thought it was so cool! It’s truly space-age looking, with its triangular design, nonstick base, sloping bottom, and curved spoon. I remember how many times our bowls ended up on the floor when my twins were small. This product would have been a real mess-saver for us! If you’re looking for a really unique and useful gift for someone who’s pregnant or has a baby, this fits the bill perfectly!

Barbara is generously allowing me to give a Baby Dipper bowl to four randomly picked readers of this blog! To enter the giveaway, just visit http://www.babydipper.com, and then leave a comment on this posting to tell me something you found interesting on the site. (You can also purchase more bowls there, too!) Last day of the contest: November 15, 2008.

    I thought it was interesting from a mom of twins talking about leaving another hand free to entertain the baby, as a mom of 6 month old twin boys I am having a hard time feeding them both at the same time since I constantly have to set one bowl down (non-slip would help here)and pick up the other. Forget entertaining it is mission time, much better when dad can help. Two sets of twins and an inventor, great story!

  2. I like that the bowls are non-skid. I'm looking for bowls for my twins to use as they get more and more insistant on feeding themselves. It is very interesting that she has two sets of twins and still finds time to be an businesswoman. Kudos!

  4. These are brilliant! Thanks for the word up.

    Erin Britton (above) have you considered feeding your twins with the same bowl and spoon? It was the best advice our pediatrician gave us. :)

    Best to you.

  5. Feeding time for one of my twins used to be easy, but has become such a fuss. I am always looking for ways to make my life easier. Lately I have been having to feed him because he has trouble getting the food onto his spoon (still). I don't always have time to sit down and feed him, and myself, and take care of everything else! This may be just the "special" thing I have been looking for to give him the encouragement to eat on his own again!...of course I'll have to end up getting two to avoid fights! :)

  6. I learned that it has a non slip base which is great you don't go chasing the bowl all over the table.

  7. That is so cool! I bet it is easier for the child too, as he learns to self-feed. neat.

    I like that the corners fit the spoon. I HATE when there are still edible globs of food left that I can't get to. And the non-skid too, of course.

  11. I read their whole story and thought it was really cute, I love when people invent stuff based on things they need that aren't marketed! I also like the jon and kate plus 8 esque picture they took, lots of kiddos in that one!

  24. I also love that they are non skid, I have had my little angel knock a bowl of peas flying across the room, and what a mess that made.

  26. Looking for different things for baby shower gifts for my friend's pregnant daughters. These look like a great invention - nonskid bottoms - what parent wouldn't love that?!?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that the spoon fits in the lower corner of the bowl and doesn't slide down into the bowl. I always seem to loose the spoon in the bottom. Thanks for the chance to win. ecghick@yahoo.com

  28. Their website is great and I love the FAQ page- and it answered the questions that I had! The non-slip bottom would be AWESOME for feeding time at our zoo!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  32. I think the non-skid bottom should be a clue to all other manufactures out there - HEY - wake up - don't let my kid push his bowl off of the table! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love how they explain the benefits of the baby dipper and have the little bowl moving across the screen with the food disappearing. :) Great invention!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I learned that the bowl doesn't slide all over the place during feeding.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love that bowl.. How perfect for a kid to learn how to eat by themselves with the slantedness of the bowl and the non slip!

    ReplyDelete
  36. it's also good for toddlers trying to spoon-feed themselves

  37. I like that you can see through the transparent sides.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The bowl should be hand-washed. While it can be used in the microwave, this isn't recommended because the baby's food can scald.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this bowl and it'd be great for feeding my baby.

    I can't believe she has two sets of twins.

  43. Besides having the non-slip bottom, I really like the idea that the spoon has a place of its own in the corner.

  45. I found it interesting that the triangular-shaped Baby Dipper bowl enables one-handed feeding of infants and makes self-feeding easy for toddlers.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the fact that it is as useful for mom as it is for the toddler later on! Smart thinking!!
