Some babies love them and some babies hate them. My baby never got it, he didn't like them. A few of the babies in our playgroup loved them and used them all the time. I think it just depends on the baby. Maybe buy one and try it.

everyone is right... it is a fantastic thing to have!! i think it's a must-have!! my son loved his! they are very hard to clean & the kids can get a little mess using them! but oh well... like my grandma always says "it all comes out in the wash" :)
I got one for my son to help ease teething discomfort. We used it several times, but I agree with the previous poster who said they are a pain to clean and they are also very messy. Even if you get them to the sink right away, it's still hard to get all the mushed up food out of the seams on the inside. However, it does work with the teething.

I also used it a lot. My baby was not so good at taking bites out of pieces of food, he'd stuff it all in his mouth and choke. I was so nervous! So I got him this feeder. It was great! I put tons of stuff in there, lots of fruit, teething biscuits... It was a pain to wash though. If you get one, make sure you rinse and soak it as soon as your baby is done with it! I stopped using it once he had a couple of teeth.

I use it all the time. Love it. It allows them to try different foods, textures that they otherwise wouldn't be able to. I put carrots, cantoloupe, watermelon, apple, ice(when teething)...
It's great too because you don't need to worry about a choking hazard. Also, in children just learning to eat solids, it fosters the "chewing" motion.
