Messes are a part of the process when a child is first learning to eat at the table with utensils. The plate getting thrown or knocked to the floor is inevitable. With a 2 1/2 year old, and a 6 month old who is just beginning to eat solid foods...I am always open to learning about new products that make eating time easier for them and us.
The Baby Diner is a product that attaches to any smooth table top or surface. It allows parents to secure dinnerware using suction cups to prevent accidental knocking over or throwing of plates and bowls. It also provides a safe and sanitary eating environment when dining out and works great with standards restaurant bowls, plates and baskets of all types.
Here is a little clip of how it works:
With a toddler, and a baby who is just beginning to eat solids, I was thrilled to find out I was going to have the opportunity to review the Baby Diner. Who wouldn't want a way to make dinner time a little less messy, right?! When it arrived I was impressed with the size. It was smaller than I expected which was great! It's something that not only is easy to store at home, but would be small enough to slide into the diaper bag when we're dining out as well.
I also found it to be great quality and love the fact that it has no BPA, Lead and Phthalates. Finding products that are safe for my kids is most important, so this was a huge plus!
When it came to using it, it was quite simple! All I had to do was take the suction cups provided and attach one on the top and two on the bottom. It really took no time at all and I had the Baby Diner put together and ready to use!
I love using it with Kaelyn! Every once in a while her elbow knocks a plate to the floor, so this has been great. It really does securely attach to the table. Once it's in place we have no problems with plates accidentally getting knocked to the floor. I have found that it also makes it easier for her to use her utensils. We used to find that as she would slide her spoon or fork across the plate to get food, that the plate would slide along with it. This became frustrating for her. Now, using the Baby Diner, the plate does not slide around as she's trying to use her utensils which makes dinner time much more enjoyable for her, and us.
With Kaden just beginning to eat solid foods, I haven't used it with him yet. However, in no time he will be eating from a plate and I know this will come in very handy for him as well.
I am very pleased with the quality and usefulness of the Baby Diner. It's a product I would recommend to parents with young children for sure. Its design and ease of use makes it a very practical baby product to have on hand at home, and when out to eat.
