We didnt do mesh feeders with DD, I made her baby food by pureeing veggies and fruits and freezing it using the mumi and bubi ice cube trays. DS is 5 months now and I am gathering all the tools I will need to start feeding him solids once he turns 6 months! I keep seeing these mesh feeders everywhere, did you use one? Was it beneficial and was it tough to clean? If you liked it what kind of food did you put inside
