I’ve just been forwarded this website about a new bib designed to hold a bottle at the “right” angle to enable you to prop feed your child from 3 months: http://www.mummaandbubba.com/babybib.html . There is also a prototype for a “feeding arm” which attaches to the cot or buggy.

Prop feeding obviously isn’t ideal for bonding, but it is also a choking hazard, and has been linked to tooth decay and increased middle ear infections. It is actively discouraged by the NHS and Social Services.

The questionaire for feedback on the page isn’t working, and you appear to not be able to email directly from the page, but the email address *does* work if you copy and paste it into your email. Just thought people here might like to register their concerns - it appear to have been designed by a mum rather than a corporation, so there’s a chance that if she gets lots of emails expressing concern she might rethink the whole idea….

Yuck!!! Too busy to cuddle baby, how incredibly sad.

learning every day from small bear July ‘08, and baby bee April ‘12

Have emailed her, now I have peeled myself off the ceiling…..hopping mad that someone can think propping a baby up to feed itself is ok, let alone want to make money out of it.
A baby should have a warm breast, but failing that warm loving arms.
Very glad i am not her child.

That is hideous! I have emailed.

I’m getting nothing from your link Angie. Actually, going straight to http://www.mummaandbubba.com/ I get the message ‘www.mummaandbubba.com will be shut down until further notice’.

Do you think your emails have worked?
