THE MESH FEEDER
I know some bloggers have talked about their hate for these little pieces of plastic & netting, and to each their own, I for one.. and in awe of them.
If you follow me on twitter (@mrsstethoscope) you have heard that E is cutting
her top tooth(this will be her third tooth).
It has been a real
to say the least.
Girlfriend has been chewing on EVERYTHING
we went out to grab a bite to eat the other day,
thank goodness I had a
she was literally biting the side of the table to a good 10 minutes.
The one thing that seems to ease her gum pain,
and keep her very occupied
while also letting her feel like "Miss Independent"
is her MESH FEEDER.
We love this thing. Seriously!!!!
Every night after dinner while she is still in her highchair
we give it to her.
Usually its filled with a piece of peeled apple, or pear.
However I quickly learned that she prefers it to be frozen.
It actually leaves a tiny red rash around her mouth
because its cold... but SHE LOVES IT.
She chews on it until it turns to mush and then sucks
on the mush until there is really nothing
left inside the netting.
We are going to try adding new fruits/veggies
over the next few weeks.
About a month ago she actually had her first
"REAL tantrum" when I took it from her,
only to refill it.
She freaked out, cried like she just got stung by a bee.
