EcoMom Boon Squirt Review and Giveaway



I have recently been introduced to the EcoMom website and was given the opportunity to do a review for one of their many great products.

For those of you who haven’t heard of EcoMom, here’s some information about their company from their website.

“Founded to address the connection between the health of our environment and the health of our children, EcoMom is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, and rewarding. By helping women begin to take better care of themselves and their families – with education, support, tools and products - we empower them to take the all important first steps toward a healthier, more balanced, and sustainable lifestyle.

EcoMom.com is about bridging the gap between making healthy choices and making easy choices. We created EcoMom because we care and are concerned for babies and their moms, our families and our communities. We want every mom to be an EcoMom because being an EcoMom means making choices that are good for all of us, and the planet which we all share.”

The EcoMom website really is so much more than a store and I would really recommend checking out all the information they have available on top of the great products offered.
EcoMom offers products ranging for Mom and Baby, from bath and body, to toys, books, food and so much more.

I was given the opportunity to test out the orange Boon Squirt eating utensil.

I received the product and washed it in the dishwasher prior to use. There are only three pieces to the Boon Squirt, so it’s extremely easy to assemble and disassemble.



The idea behind this spoon is great. You fill (up to 3 ounces) the bulb, add the cap to the spoon and it’s great for on the go. No separate container and extra spoon which makes feeding baby on the go easier and cleaner too.

I’m going to be honest and let you know this product really isn’t for me, and I’ll tell you why. I make my own baby food for Rosemary. The spoon is made for smooth textured baby food and I didn’t even think about this before I decided to review it. When you make your own, the food is a lot chunkier than store bought food, so for everyone else who isn’t making their own food, this is a great spoon.

After the first time I tried to put my homemade food in and it didn’t really work, I went and purchased a couple store jars of food to try out with Rosemary.


Rosemary's first time using the Boon Squirt.

The Boon Squirt is actually a great baby food dispensing spoon – especially on the go. I liked using it and if/when I need to use the jarred baby food again, I fully intend on using the spoon. It really does make feeding your baby easier. You add the food to the bulb and that’s it. One handed feeding. You squeeze a tiny bit and food flows out smoothly onto the spoon one bite at a time. The special cap for the spoon locks the food in, which makes it safe for travel as well. The first time we used the spoon it did make her a little messy, but I contribute that to it being her first time with the smoother puree.

Cleaning was extremely easy as well. After all the food was gone I rinsed lightly and put it in the dishwasher.

Overall I really like the spoon, but I’d probably have to say I’d only recommend it if you feed your baby jarred/premade baby food.
