When we started feeding Howard cereal, I hadn't bought the nice baby bowls with the lids yet. We had been at home, so it didn't matter, I just mixed his cereal up in a regular bowl, and fed him with a baby spoon (which I had bought). So, the first day we went out to run errands during his lunch time, I knew I'd have to feed him cereal in a restaurant. Enter the butter dish. I save butter dishes mostly to send leftovers home when we have company for dinner, that way I don't have to worry about them being returned. But, as I surveyed my cupboards for a cereal carrying vessel, they seemed perfect. They would...
- Easily hold 3 tablespoons of cereal.
- Allow me to mix the cereal and feed Howard all with 1 container.
- I could pitch/recycle it at the restaurant and not have to bring it home to be washed (unless I wanted to). And thus not have to worry about it leaking all over the diaper bag.
And best of all, it was FREE!
