Best Bowl for Babies

Updated on July 22, 2014

The Best Suction-Cup Bowl Ever!

Until I found this bowl, suction-cup bottomed bowls were one of those things that only was a good idea in theory. We had tried a few with my daughter, and they seemed to make a bigger mess for us to clean up than a standard bowl. Now that my son is at the self-feeding age we decided to give those old bowls a second chance. Our previous attempts to encourage our son to eat from a bowl ended in a fantastic mess. Figuring that I couldn't be the only parent suffering from this source of frustration, I decided to search for the perfect suction bowl. I am happy to say I have succeeded.

Best Suction Cup Bowl Ever! - ...and I've tried a lot!

This bowl is worth its weight in gold! I have it on my son's highchair tray and he has not been able to get it to budge. Our previous suction bowls would only stay put a few seconds before he pried them off. This bowl is on so well, that when I was showing my husband how tight the suction was I popped the highchair tray off the highchair. To release the suction you merely twist the bowl off the base and pull up the lever. I have had it only for a few weeks, but am extremely happy with my purchase.


This bowl and my Roomba keep me sane!

My son just loves to shovel his Cheerios into his mouth as fast as his little hands can move. He made a terrible mess when they were loose on his tray, or in any other bowl. Now that we are using the Vital Baby bowl, he is supper happy, because he has an easier time grabbing handfuls of cereal, and I am happy because there is so much less mess. Now when I empty my Roomba's bin it is not completely stuffed with cheerios. Of course there is still a mess, but a much more manageable one, at least.

Once your toddler is beyond the bowl throwing stage... - This bowl is a great choice.

Cali bowls are a neat bowl to transition your kid to once they have stopped throwing bowls full of food around. They have a grippy bottom to keep the bowl from skidding all over the table. But the coolest feature is that the inside rim of the bowl curves in so that the food gets helped onto the spoon rather than over the side. When I served salsa to my family I used this and it worked really well, although the kids were a little upset at first that I used THEIR bowl, lol!

We picked the purple, my favorite color. My daughter has a great time with these bowls and my son is able to use them now too.


My dining area is carpeted, and the worst clean up I had is when a full bowl of pureed squash landed upturned on the carpet. It soaked immediately into the carpet. Scrub, scrub, scrub did I, yet if I look close enough I can still spot the faint yellow stain. Refinishing the wood floors in my house is so part of my five year plan!

What's the worst mess you've cleaned up? - Tell us what you think.

      I really like this bowl. My niece just had a baby and this would be a great shower gift.
