The suction bowl parents say actually works

Share it

Trying to teach your baby to eat like a civilised human being is no easy feat. There’s the food throwing and rubbing porridge in their hair. Not to mention the only eating with their hands. (Which is a developmental milestone, I know.) 

But why do they have to throw every bowl and plate on the floor? Why!

As a result, I’ve stopped using bowls and plates altogether. Instead, I plop my son’s food straight onto the tray of the high chair. Believe it or not, this strategy means less mess for me to clean up at the end of every meal.

Recently, I wondered if I should start trying to teach him to eat food out of a bowl. 

So I went in search of a suction bowl that actually suctions, and I came across this product on Tell Me Baby that some parents say actually works: the Heinz Baby Basics Unbelievabowl Suction Bowl. At the time of writing this article, it had a 3.7-star rating with parents saying it actually sticks to their high chair tray. 

The Unbelievabowl has been designed to stick to non-porous surfaces such as your baby’s highchair or tabletop using a suction pad, which the bowl is the attached to.

“This suction bowl is amazing”

“This suction bowl is amazing,” wrote one reviewer. “It helps avoid my little one tipping his bowl over very good suction.”

Another parent backed up the bowl’s power of suction. “This is the perfect suction bowl. It does not come off at all. No matter how my little one tries. The suction is really strong,” they said.

“The base has a locking function to suction onto high chair surface. The bowl is a good size and it is a neat package with the spoon and lid for travel, said another reviewer.

“I love that there is a spoon”

If great suction isn’t enough, parents also love that there’s a spoon and a lid too.

“The lid is great for going out and the spoon too. A bit pricey but I think it’s worth the money. And the fact that you can take it out too,” wrote one parent.

Another said, “I love that there is a lot and spoon too, great little set when going out so baby can also sit and enjoy a meal when out. Easy to clean. Love the variety of colours.”
