Feed a baby with just one hand

The Squirt baby food dispensing spoon makes one-handed feeding a breeze.

Boon

I'm at that age where most of my friends are starting families, so I find myself shopping for a lot of baby stuff. In fact, I've developed a bit of a reputation for giving the kind of wildly impractical baby gifts that only a non-parent would buy. But the Squirt baby food dispensing spoon just might help salvage my reputation as a gift-giver. Parents can fill the bright orange bulb with up to three ounces of baby food, then secure the spoon on the end. A squeeze of the bulb dispenses a bite of food onto the spoon, allowing for one-handed feeding. The spoon also comes with a protective cover so you can throw it in a bag and still have something for the baby to eat while you're away from home.

I do wonder how easy it will be to squeeze the right amount of food onto the spoon end. And I wonder how easy it will be to clean--assuming that it's dishwasher-safe. We'll be able to find out in October, when the Squirt will be available for purchase and I will no doubt give it to some unsuspecting first-time parents.
