Our family has become huge fans of the Maxx Elite feeder. We’ve previously only used mesh feeders, and found them to be obnoxiously messy – and floppy. This feeder has a silicone feeder that greatly reduces the mess. My son also seemed to have a much easier time figuring out how to use this one – the mess feeders seem to frustrate him.
I also appreciate having a cover to snap over the nipple, especially when we’re out at a restaurant. No more setting the surface my baby is putting in his mouth down on potentially dirty surfaces.
I found the nipple to be a little on the small side. Maybe my son is a fast eater, but he run through the food in this quickly and is crying for a refill after just a couple of minutes. Still, it’s helping to teach him how to feed himself, and that’s worth 5 stars in my book.
