As Baby J becomes more and more independent, he’s moved from eating out of a bowl every meal to using his very own plate. His big boy plate was sent to us by Nûby to review.
This BPA-free, Fun Feeding Section Plate has three divided areas, perfect for separating foods if you have a picky toddler, or to teach your little one about food choices. The raised dividers in between the sections also help Baby J get food on his spoon or fork more easily than a flat plate. He can scoop his food up against the divider and then into his spoon.
The plate is sturdy, so it’s great for meals, picnics, snacks, etc. Next weekend I’m tossing this plate in Baby J’s carry-on and taking it on vacation with us! I’ve been washing it on the top rack of the dishwasher and in the microwave without any issues.
Available in several colors with embossed character designs, find this toddler plate at these retailers (affiliate link):
It’s been a while since I did a Nûby review! We received the Octopus Floating Bath Toy, designed to help develop hand-eye coordination. And it’s fun too!
The toy comes with three little rings that you toss and want to catch on the octopus’ tentacles. This is Baby J’s new favorite toy. His face just lit up when I placed it in the bathtub the first time. And he’s been taking it to bed with him. -_- Yup. I have photo proof.
This BPA-free toy is designed for 18 months and up, but Baby J’s not coordinated enough to toss the rings onto the tentacles. Actually, I tried from about three feet away and only got two out of three. Obviously I need to work on my fine motor/throwing skills. Baby J just places the rings on the tentacles, pulls them off, and repeat.
I think the only thing that would make this toy more fun would be to include even more rings to toss. There are six tentacles but only three rings. Or perhaps sell some rings separately too, so we can add to the set.

I received a complimentary Nuby Icy Bite teether to review.
As a first-time parent, I’m learning that teething never stops the first two years. Does it stop at two? Please tell me it stops eventually!
Right now we’re dealing with pre-molars and canines. When Baby J is in pain, I always prefer to use natural options first, before reaching for any sort of medication. I’ve heard many times the benefit of cold things against a baby’s sore gum, but the downside I’ve found is, well, it’s cold. Baby J doesn’t want to hold cold fruit or a frozen washrag, etc. Yes, there are ways around it (wrap the end of a frozen washrag in a non-frozen washrag), but surely there’s a more efficient option! And that’s what’s exciting about Nûby’s IcyBite Animal Teethers.
This BPA-free teether has a removeable cover that your baby can grasp, so his or her little hands don’t get cold!
In the shapes of animals, these teethers are fun and brightly colored. The non-toxic PurICE gel inside the teethers stays cool longer than water filled teethers. Just place the teether inside your fridge until it’s cold, and then give it to your baby to soothe your little one’s sore gums.
