A couple of smart daddies designed a baby bottle holder that has received accolades from design experts, but what do moms think? I tested it out with my baby and it really works. The Ba is made of FDA-approved silicone. It is free of BPA, phthalate, lead and PVC according to company literature. The rubbery ball can fit bottles with neck sizes ranging from 2-2.4 inches in diameter.
I used a Platex drop-in style 8 oz. bottle and it fit perfectly. The squishy feel of the ball and its honeycomb-like holes make it easy for my little guy to get a good grip. At five months his grip is still new and he still lets go unintentionally, but the large size and shape of the Ba lets him pick it back up on his own.
In addition to being a great way to independently drink from his bottle, the Ba make a great toy for him to busy himself while in the high chair. We haven’t tested it in the stroller yet, but the design will easy allow me to latch it to the strap so I don’t have to worry about losing it on the sidewalk.
The Ba would even be great for traveling since it collapses easily if squeezed into our luggage. I was a bit skeptical at first since I’m not a fan of some of the other bottle buddy-type systems but this one has won me over. A cool concept!
The Ba comes in blue, pink or green and retails for approximately $14.99. You can find it in boutiques and online retailers, such as www.diapers.com and www.amazon.com. Or visit www.theoriginalbaby.com to find out more.
