    Default Unbelievabowl or other similar suction bowls

    Just wondering have you tried them, do they actually work?

    DS normally gets his food just put straight on his tray but I'm wanting to start using a bowl/plate but he just picks it up and all the food falls on the floor.

    We have a bowl that has a suction ring in the bunnikins range and it's useless, he picks it straight up and it looses suction. I'm happy to buy a more expensive one but don't want to waste my money on another bowl if they don't work.

    Was looking specifically at the unbelievabowl, the nuby one or there was one other I can't remember what it's called

    I bought munchkin bowls and they don't work at all so avoid them. Haven't tried any others.

    I've just got a boon bowl, initially dd could pull it off but I realised i wasn't pushing down hard enough and since then she hasn't managed to despite being really persistent!!!!

    I got my DS a suction plate/bowl (like a shallow bowl) from Woolworths recently. I can't remember the brand, but it was only about $4.00.

    I'm really happy with it. Admittedly my child is older and less likely to play with his dinnerware, but he finds it easy to spoon feed himself from it.

    Thanks all.

    I'll steer clear of the munchkins one!

    Will look at what Coles has on offer when I'm there today

    We've got a shallow blue one from Woolies, can't remember the brand but it's great.

    I used the Heinz one and ds (17 months at the time) managed to throw it across the room within seconds. I checked the suction and I had done it properly, I havent found a match for him yet

    The Heinz one worked great for us :/ even I struggle to get it off the table (I wonder if different surfaces matter- it was useless on her highchair tray)

    I also tried a tommee tippee one - has a green suction pad that you place the bowl on... Absolutely useless!

    My mum recently came back from overseas with one called the Calibowl - it's been great so far.
