Whether we're talking baby food or toddler snacks, I love food pouches. At home or on the go, nothing is easier!! But, if you're not using one with a good anti-spill device (such as my fave, Squeasy Gear), they can make quite a mess when your little one gives them a squeeze accidentally (or on purpose, those stinkers!!!).
One mom saw the need and came up with a simple yet effective solution. Behond, the ChubChub PouchBuddy!!
These little handle bars are universal, meaning they'll screw onto just about any pouch on the market.
The PouchBuddy makes pouch feeding easier and less messy two ways:
PouchBuddy is free of BPA, PVC, and Phthalates, is top rack dishwasher safe, and is good for babies from the age of 4 months. Each PouchBuddy comes with its own cleaning brush, as well!
My girls are already 13 months and are quite the pros at self-feeding with pouches. They don't have accidents too much anymore, but we were still excited to try out the ChubChub PouchBuddy.
They're quick and easy to screw on, but do add a few seconds to the process of getting that pouch to your screaming child, which can feel like an eternity, am I right? LOL!! They're light and compact, so they're easy to keep in the diaper bag, and I was surprised that after we were done using them they weren't messy, so I just threw them right back in the bag, didn't even need a little plastic baggy before I could rinse them out.
My girls were used to holding the pouch, but took to the handles quickly. One baby instinctively held it by the handles when I gave it to her. For the other baby, I had to manually move her hands from pouch to handles a couple of times before she caught on and did it herself. After finished drinking the pouches, they both enjoyed chewing on the handles for a long time - score, pouch handles and teether in one! Ha!
I found the PouchBuddy to be well made - no sharp edges or corners, and they don't seem like they will break or wear out quickly (though if my girls keep chewing on them... we'll see...).
So, in a nutshell, if you have a young baby just starting to venture into the world of pouches, or an older baby who gets quite messy with the pouch, I highly recommend trying out ChubChub PouchBuddy. They retail for $10.99 (currently on sale for $7.99 on ChubChub's website and Amazon (affiliate link), and come in orange, turquoise, and yellow.
