So, on the same day at night, I got down to cleaning and washing up this food feeder first. Then I grabbed an apple, peeled off the skin and cut into smaller chunks. Put a piece about half an inch long into the mesh bag and snapped it shut.
Then I passed it to Ben. At first, he was a bit apprehensive.. I mean, he's probably confused wondering what is this thing that mummy passed to him. Should he smash it? Or eat it? Or what?
I put a bit of the mesh bag where the apple chunk was located at into Ben's mouth, let him try to taste what it is.
Then, I slowly took his hands, and taught him to hold the handle with 2 hands and he took control from then on.
He started gumming the apple once he realized there's something sweet and watery in the bag. Then you can hear his sucking sound. Gum, chew, munch, suck!
And look at how tight his hands were on the handle of the food feeder. When MIL tried to play a joke on Ben by asking him to give to Mah-Mah (aka grandma), Ben turned the other direction and strolled off in his walker leaving MIL laughing at his antiques :D
Look at how contented Ben is... he just sat there in his walker happily gumming and munching and chewing and sucking the apple chunks!
He practically had about half of the apple (small size like tennis ball).
I totally loved the way he puts out his 2 feet... so relax and enjoy!
Price of Munchkin Food Feeder = RM25.90...
The joy of seeing your baby boy happily munching apple chunks (without the fear of him choking and me spending time to puree or mash it ASAP :P) = PRICELESS.... :D
