Babyfood storage for the type A mom | The ZoLi OTG feeder

So by now you can figure that given my proclivity towards everything organized, I have a ton of tools in my arsenal that keep me this way. At my MOPS meeting this week, we had Karen of Let’s Get Organizing speak to the group. She presented some fabulous ideas for staying organized with kiddos. (She has a pretty fun facebook page if you haven’t found her yet!) After our “quiz” to see what category we fell into (naturally, I was a hyper-organizer) I began to realize how many tools I use to keep me on track. I figured you might be interested in some of them. Here is the first one…

While I was home in California, I made it to Giggle, which is one of my favorite stores.  Giggle has the most amazing eco-friendly baby products. I could spend hours in the store studying all the products I can find online, but not in store locally. They have a great youtube channel that offers reviews for some of my FAVORITE things & a bunch of products you might like to know more about. Anyhoo, tools for prep & storage of baby food are a big part of their product line. While I blogged about the awesome-ness of the Sassy Baby products in my post on Efficient Homemade Baby Food, I think I have found a tool that far surpasses the efficiency of the system I was using before.

Meet the ZoLi On-the-Go feeder. I found it in store ($15) and was tickled to start using it! My problem with the Sassy products is that I usually can only carry, at most, three different foods per container. Well, I need more than that. I have a girl with a diverse little palette! This food organizer can accommodate as many screw on parts as you wish to put on; four is not the limit. The top part is designed for baby formula, as it has a little hole you can pour stuff out of. I have not ever used formula, but I can see how it would be handy! I think it is even more handy for raisins. I used this on the plane and experienced ZERO leakage. It is so well designed & has very few parts to put in the dishwasher, compared to the other containers I have used. I also like that I can take it to the MOPS childcare & have the ladies feed caroline in order, top to bottom, based on what I *really* want her to eat for lunch. Chicken…then veggies…then fruit…then noodles. Genius. I added an inchbug bumpy label to it, which is how I label ALL of our cups. (If you haven’t discovered the inchbug facebook page you are missing out; they post sales galore! & are not just for babies) SO many fun things available…

Even after kids, I think this will find a place in my bag. I mean…who doesn’t need an organizer for hair accessories, snacks, knick knacks…I could find a zillion non-baby uses for this thing.

& for those of you photogs…I have been TRYING to get the hang of my Wacom Tablet. I know so many of you love yours…but for me, right now, it is reminding me that there is plenty left to learn about my craft…sheesh. The only thing I think I have mastered is how to draw arrows & program the buttons. HA! Hoping the learning curve isn’t quite as steep as I am currently finding it…

  • Katie - Ok, so we are just barely starting on some solid food. Babes will be 6 months this week. The end of the month we are going to CT to visit my sister, so I figure we will be in full swing with food. I really wanted her to eat all homemade stuff, but I guess we will need to compromise and buy food when we get there. Any suggestions? P.S. I just found your blog and I love it!ReplyCancel

  • -shawna- - @jenberry–getting better every day! @Katie–take bananas on the plane & hit the grocery store when you get there. Really easy stuff to make in a pinch are sweet potatoes on the microwave, mashed bananas & baked apples & pears. & thanks–glad you are here!ReplyCancel
