We don't mean to mouth off, but let's be real about how mesh baby feeders can be a real mess and difficult to clean. Our silicone teething feeder has some bite to it, allowing for easy self feeding with its interior firm stem that forces food out where babies can get to it. Can also be used with chilled food to help soothe teething babies. Small handle is perfect for baby's grasp. It's simple to clean and more durable than mesh toddler feeders.
