As part of my plan to live a more natural lifestyle, I have been seeking alternatives to plastic goods whenever I need to make a purchase. One of the things I am always on the lookout for is wooden bowls and plates for the baby. I have learnt the hard way that he is not to be trusted with our every day porcelain plates!
It's probably not surprising, but reasonable quality wooden crockery is not that easy to come across. I found the little bowl at Ikea a couple of months ago, and was thrilled today to happen upon the little wooden platter at Target. I'm thinking it's going to be perfect for baby's sandwiches and dinner.
The thing about wooden bowls and plates is that you can't just chuck them in the dishwasher. You need to give them a little hand wash after each meal. Which is perfect, because that way you need only one!
