What are the best baby bowls?
For babies, baby bowls are not only for eating but also should have beautiful styles. Because good-looking tableware can attract their attention at first sight. We should also focus on its functions, materials, shapes, and colors.
We can choose bowls from three different terms: material, appearance, and function. According to the baby’s interest and parents’ favorite design, we can let the baby have a good meal with safe material. And the parents can have a meal or do other works peacefully.

So the suction function is a pretty practical design. We are happy to suggest the popular Baby silicone Suction Bowl to you.

Choose baby bowl material
The material is most important when choosing the baby bowls. The safe material is very important to protect the baby’s health. We can’s tolerance any harmful material that affects the baby’s health. So let’s study what bowl materials are used commonly in the market.
The plastic is the most common material used in the baby dinnerware. Plastic is basically made of polymer compounds such as polyethylene or polypropylene. And also add some colorants, solvents or plasticizers, during the production process, which can make the surface more colorful and bright in shape.
The advantages of plastic dinner are heat resistant, difficult to drop broken, non-deformation, smooth feel, and light texture. Babies can feed by themselves. But it is difficult to clean, the oil and oil stains are easy to remain in the plastic.
However, when you choose plastic tableware, avoid bright, messy or smelly. Because there’s much lead in the color, which is likely to cause lead poisoning. Few decorative patterns on the inner wall of the bowl are better.
2. Stainless steel
The durability of stainless steel tableware is better, it will anti-corroded, anti-rust naturally, won’t crack. However, the thermal conductivity of stainless steel is too good, the food temperature is easy to pass to the hand. So it’s not good for baby use that.
In addition, stainless steel tableware is often printed with the codes “13-0”, “18-0” and “18-8”. The first number represents the chromium content, and the latter represents the nickel content. Chrome guarantees that the bowl is anti-rust. Nickel guarantees that the bowl resists corrosion. But both are heavy metals. If the product is not qualified, will affect health.
3. Ceramic dinnerware
Ceramic dinnerware is good for health. But it is too easy to break and is not suitable for babies, because falling bowls are interesting for babies. Sharp ceramic fragments may scratch the babies, so it is not recommended.
4. Natural dinnerware
At present, natural bamboo or solid wood is very popular. Because there is no chemical substance incorporated, there is no toxicity, and natural materials are light, waterproof, and non-perishable. They are good choices, but they are prone to mold. We should pay attention to the disinfection treatment.
5. Melamine tableware
What is melamine? Melamine tableware is made with melamine and formaldehyde. At normal conditions, it’s safe. But once the production process is not ok, melamine is easy to infuse into food. We don’t suggest that.
6. Silicone dinnerware
The 100% food-grade silicone is safe for the baby’s health. It’s durable, easy to clean, waterproof, difficult to drop or tear broken. It is bendable, and easy to recover the shape. The silicone bowl with lid also has good thermal insulation for daily use.
After study all the bowl materials, we know which material is safe, which not. We have a conclusion as following:
- Use plastic or silicone bowl for daily dinnerware.
- Cool food soon, choose stainless steel bowl.
- Try to avoid Ceramic tableware and melamine dinnerware.
- Natural tableware can be selected and needs to be disinfected regularly.
choose baby bowl shapes and colors
The higher appearance can attract the baby’s sight, this can help the baby training feed and have better meal motion. So we will consider better baby bowl shapes and colors.
1. baby bowl shapes
In order to attract the baby’s attention, the bowl shape can have many patterns, including animal, puppet shapes. And parents need to pay attention to the following points:
- Make sure that there are not too many bumps on the edges of the baby bowl. That prevents dirt and breeding bacteria, and also protect the baby from being hurt by edges and corners
- The surface should be smooth and free of burrs to ensure that it will not hurt the baby.
- Whether the baby bowl is easy to grasp so that the baby can eat independently.
2. Baby bowl colors
The colors of the baby’s bowls are very rich. There are one or more colors basically. Some people may say, shouldn’t we choose a bowl with less color? Here you should also consider the source of the bowl’s color. If it includes lead, the less color is better, none is best. If it is a natural pigment, it does not matter, because that won’t cause harm to the human body.
The other factor we should care, whether the color will fade. Some bowls will have cartoon patterns on them. It is best to choose the bowl with the colored outside, Keep the inside clean.
