New.....Toy-Thing...?

We were shopping for baby gates to block our trecherous staircases, and April saw this thing she read about somewhere, so we bought it. I don't remember the name, but it's this little net-thing that you stuff food into, and then you twist it shut to lock it in place, and your baby can gum it and suck on it so that the food oozes out into their mouths in a paste form. It's awesome! Ha! It prevents them from biting off more than they can chew (literally) and choking, but it makes a HUGE mess. It's funny watching Parker mash it into his face -- he gets food in his mouth, nose, hair, ears, and eyes, not to mention all over his clothes and usually the floor. But he's still cute so it's okay.

I've got to say...that just looks gross! I guess as long as Parker is enjoying it! What do you put in that thing?

Anything soft, really! The one in the photo has bananas in it, but we've also put carrots and mango in it as well. And we tried ice cubes, which he seemed to like, too!
