When I think of babies eating, I think of bottles or breast feeding, neither of which requires that much gear. Or so I thought, until my friend and her 8 month-old came to stay and she (my friend, not her baby) whipped out an elaborate place setting consisting of a segmented, color coded place mat, a spoon she raved about not being able to live without, a no-spill sippy cup, and a set of really cute bibs. That’s when I realized: PLACE SETTINGS! They’re not just for wedding registries anymore. Oh, no! Babies are registering all over the place for cute, coordinated dinnerware. Here are some of the items all of my mom friends swear by. And there is no “pick of the week” here, because I’ve gone ahead and added them ALL to my registry!
