With every new leap forward in baby’s development, there comes a litany of new things to learn and be responsible for. I thought feeding was one of those things that I didn’t have to worry about anymore. After all, we had gotten breastfeeding down to an art. So imagine my dismay when my pediatrician informed me, with unsubstantiated glee, that we were cleared to start solid foods.
Let me tell you this—if I had my way we would breastfeed forever. One of the things I love about nursing is how easy it is to do on the go. I don’t have to worry about washing bottles or warming food—I can just whip it out and nurse my daughter wherever, whenever.
Thank goodness that there are moms out there that are a step ahead of me, like Cynthia Silver, the founder of Baby in Tow. They make an awesome little product called the Spoon Cocoon, which appeals generously to my convenience-driven, germaphobic nature.
The Spoon Cocoon is an adorable green caterpillar that hides a matching green infant spoon inside. The case is durable, easy to open and close, and small enough to toss into a diaper bag. We’re a pretty on-the-go family, and little Phoenix has a huge appetite. It’s great to know that I’m always prepared to feed her, even as we start solids. The caterpillar is the right size to hold most infant spoons, in case you’re like me and you only wash dishes under duress. Speaking of which, the Spoon Cocoon is even top rack dishwasher safe!
The Spoon Cocoon is available at Diapers.com, Bumblebean.com and Amazon.com and would make the cutest (and most practical!) addition to any shower gift basket! Just be sure to remind Mama that it’s not a toy. 😉
I received no compensation for this post, just the product for testing. As always, all opinions are true and 100% my own.
