Feeding my almost 11 month old is a challenge, to say the least. We introduced "solids" at around 6.5 months and he did well with me spoon feeding him for several months. But as he's gotten older, he's getting more independent and this becomes apparent at meal time as well! He fights the spoon unless I keep giving him exciting things to play with to distract him. When I give him real food to pick up and eat with his hands, it just ends up on the floor, which is fine, but we do need some to get in his mouth!! One thing I've found that's been working have been those food pouches, but unfortunately the pre-packaged ones are super expensive. So, I've found a great solution!!
BooginHead Squeez'Ems are reusable food pouches that you fill yourself! You can fill them with your homemade or store bought baby food, yogurt, oatmeal, whatever! If your little one can manage without making a mess, just hand the pouch over and watch the food get sucked down the hatchet in record time. If they're not yet capable, you can hold the pouch for them, or you can squeeze into a spoon. These are awesome for mealtime while you're out and about because they eliminate the need for bowls and spoons and for the most part napkins!
Here's my little guy demo-ing the Squeez'Ems:
BooginHead Squeez'Ems are BPA, PVC & Phthalate free, come in one piece to eliminate lost parts, are freezer, microwave and top rack dishwasher safe, and perfect for lunch boxes and travel! The top part is rather large and super easy to fill. After you're done, rinse it out and hand wash it or throw it in the dishwasher and you're ready to fill again! What are you waiting for?

Thanks for the heads up on this brand - I had never heard of them! I'm finally going to make the switch soon to the reusable pouches so I rounded up these helpful recipe sources if you're ever looking for more recipe ideas:
Hey Jennifer glad to introduce you! Thanks for the link - great resources!! ^_^ And yeah, the news recently about the store bought pouches, scary! You can't see whats in it, and your kids just suck it right out of there so you would really have no idea what they're eating... makes me cringe!! But they are great products, kind of a catch 22.
