One of the first experiences that your baby will have in gaining independence is when it comes to introducing solids. But thanks to the Cherub Baby Food Feeder, it has becomes easier to feed solid foods to your little one.
Why use a baby food feeder
Unlike breastmilk or formula, your baby must learn how to chew foods so that they are able to swallow safely. With only a handful of little teeth and no molars, there is a high risk that instead of chewing their food, your baby could bite off a larger chunk of food and end up choking on it. This is a terrifying prospect for any parent. Luckily, there is a great tool that allows babies to gain independence by learning new tastes and how to chew their food safely.
How does a baby food feeder work?
The Cherub Baby Food Feeder works by placing fruits, vegetables or ice in a mesh bag which your baby can suck and chew. The pieces of food or ice that your baby can ingest will only be as large as the small holes in the mesh net. This mesh net ensures that there are no large pieces that your baby can choke on.
