I definitely prefer this silicone baby feeder to the old mesh variety. The silicone is easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and chewy for the baby. The opening to get the food in is a little small, and the handles seem comically large and hard to grasp. It's a little hard to fill with food, which is why I didn't give this product a better rating. I've also used this with ice chips for teething, which she found a lot of fun.
