Feeding babies mess free

Tommee Tippee is one of my favorite brands, so I was happy to join their blogger group. The thing I love most about Tommee Tippee as a brand is that they focus on feeding babies mess-free while also making it easy for babies to feel independent! Even little Anna has outgrown some of the products I am reviewing today (the bibs and mat), but my very-much-the-children-of-a-blogger kids were still excited to get this box of Tommee Tippee Explora products, and they have a little cousin who will make good use of these products!

Tommee Tippee’s Explora line focuses on helping kids master eating and drinking while keeping parents as unstressed as possible! Easi-Roll Bibs (This post may contain affiliate links which won’t change your price but will share some commission.) are generously sized, roll up for travel and storage, and rinse free. The large crumb catcher pocket does a great job of collecting crumbs. Easy Scoop feeding bowls have a great lid that holds their spoon in place. These are my favorite baby spoons, since they don’t have any sharp edges and are shaped to encourage babies to hold their spoon correctly. I have also noticed that my “big” kids favor these spoons for eating yogurt – and they love to use the bowls, too, when they are given the opportunity.

One of the problems with babies feeding themselves is that they often choose to dump their bowl of food on the floor. The Easi-mat keeps your baby’s bowl in place, and it fits on high chair trays as well as regular tables.

Tommee Tippee’s insulated cups have always been popular with my kids. Until now, I always stuck with the Explora drinking cup (pink spouts in the above photo), because I find straw cups difficult to clean. My kids LOVE straws, though, so they were pretty excited to see that our package included two Explora straw cups! Both styles of cups are very well insulated (leave them in full sun and your child’s drink will stay cool). Both cups are leak-proof; the price for this is that the cup lids are several parts (three for the drinking cup, five for the straw cup). I like that the straw top flips down, keeping the drinking surface clean during travel. The straw is actually pretty easy to clean, because it breaks apart. It takes at most ten seconds to put together the drinking cup; the straw cup takes at least thirty seconds for me. For me, thirty seconds is a small price to pay for a straw cup that never leaks (it takes much longer than that to clean up spills), but I made a video of the process so that you can decide for yourselves!

  1. Great timing for posts! We’re starting solids in the next few weeks. If Baby J is anything like her brother, we’re in for a messy time. I get sick of stain removing the cloth bibs. I’ll have to try some of these!

    The video was also informative. I might also look into the cups for Miss Baby J. Thanks!

  2. I feel that making some messes while eating is an important part of the learning process. However, spilled drinks are not fun. I’ve tried various cups and none of them are perfect… thanks for demonstrating how the straw cup you received disassembles/reassembles. Not sure if it would be worth it for me, but keeping drinks cold is nice.

    1. I haven’t found a one-size-fits-all solution. I have water bottles I love for my older kids, but my babies and toddlers can’t make them work. These are my favorites for the baby/toddler stage (and, actually Lily loves them – I just don’t love washing them for her!)
