As most of you already know, I have three kids. Over the course of the last four and half years, I have owned and tested A LOT of baby products. A few of them were life changing, while some were just okay, and when it comes to feeding products in particular, I am fairly certain that we have owned almost every utensil that has hit the market.
My youngest child, Theo, is almost 7 months old. In addition to nursing, we recently began feeding him fruit and vegetable purees. He hasn’t yet cut his first tooth, but we are definitely knee deep in the put-everything-I-can-get-my-hands-on-in-my-mouth phase. So, I think it’s safe to say that we are in the early stages of teething.
When my two oldest entered this phase, I often gave them pieces of frozen fruit in a mesh feeder, and let them go to town. They loved gnawing on the fruit, and it helped soothe their sore gums. For me though, the mesh feeders were a total pain. For starters, I usually filled them with a chunk of frozen banana or a slice of a frozen strawberry. The design of these feeders made it hard to squeeze the fruit inside, and what was worse, they were awful to clean.
Naturally, when Boon reached out to me to try out their new PULP silicone feeder, I immediately jumped on board. I have always thought highly of their products and felt confident that this one would be just as great as the others that we had tried.
You guys… remember when I said that I had tried some baby products that were life changing??? The Boon PULP is one of those products. The first time we tried it, I filled the PULP with a couple of small apple slices, and Theo was in Heaven. The handle on the PULP was easy for him to hold, and the holes in the soft silicone top made it easy for him to taste the juicy apple. He happily gnawed away in his high chair, while I watched from a few feet away.
When he was all finished, I was in Heaven over how easy the PULP was to clean. I simply pushed on the quick snap ring, removed the totally mutilated fruit, from inside, and rinsed it clean. There was no huge mess, and no need to wash it several times to get rid it of any fruit remnants. The PULP is also top-rack dishwasher safe, which is another big plus.
At this point we have put fresh strawberries and apples inside of our PULP, as well as frozen bananas. I also occasionally make small breast milk ice cubes, and use those in the feeder, which as you can imagine, Theo thoroughly enjoys.
I love that the stem on the inside of the PULP pushes the food towards the feeder holes, as opposed to it flopping all around like it used to when I used mesh feeders. As an added bonus, the PULP is BPA-free, Phthalate-free, and PVC-free as well. Oh, and the hole in the end of the handle is just perfect for using a pacifier tether, so you don’t have to worry about your baby constantly dropping the PULP on the floor… which is HUGE!
So far I am totally head over heels for this product, and I’m looking forward to watching as Theo explores and tastes more foods while using it.
