We tried for one, and we ended up with a bushel of fun.

Tuesday Trip Tip
These food nets from Munchkin are just all-around awesome. Perfect for intoducing solid foods when your little one is first big enough for such things but still too little to pick up small bits of food. Ours could pick up handfuls of food, but not successfully negotiate that food into their mouts and these solved the problem. They rae also great for teething. Putting a couple pieces of ice into one of these nets transformed our angry little teething Liam into a much more happy baby. And unlike the teething rings you put in the fridge, these don't warm after 30 seconds.
I haven't noticed it, but I've heard complaints that the nets can get "gross," which I guess is possible. I recommend a good washing. Also, we were told that finger feeding is a lost art in teh U.S. and that more babies needed to be working ot use their fingers, so this might not be a longt-term tool you want to use. In addition, I will add that while we got a good solid month or so of use out of them, our kids are big enough now that they can pretty much eat mushed solids without the nets.
We received no compensation for this post. Just a triplet passing on his knowledge.
