  • Noooo! Absolutely not! Not only is it a choking hazard, but your baby won't learn to eat food properly if he/she is trying to drink it.

  • Why on earth would you put baby food in a bottle? That's even more nuts than putting cereal in the bottle (unless directed by a pediatrician to do so).

  • Nope, its a choking hazard & depending on their age their digestive systems aren't developed enough to handle it.

  • It can be a choking hazard, but I did actually put stage one fruit, or sweet potatoes, just a couple of teaspoon fulls in my daughter's milk, I made it reallllllllll runny, used warm water with her formula, and shook really well. It was a runny milkshake like. But she was like 8 months, no younger.

  • bottle feeding food to a baby is just lazy....i'm sorry to say it so bluntly but your not teaching your child anything by doing that....babies need to learn to eat off a spoon its a fact of life

  • There is no need, have her eat off a spoon.

  • No it's not okay it's lazy. Feed the baby with a spoon. Put your little one in a highchair with something soft they can't choke on like some cooked carrots that are diced up or something.

  • If you really want to, they have self-feeders at Walmart that are designed for baby foods.
