I got tired of fighting with tube feeding, so I tried to duplicate "MOM"
Quick, easy and not too messy :D







I cut the nipple off half way, making the hole big enough to stick their beak inside. Then I cut the finger off a rubber glove, cut a slit in it and put it over the nipple. (that just helps stop messy leakage - a little)
What do you think?

Great idea!!!! :D

I REALLY like the baby bird bottle...great colors for baby birds too. :p

I bet one could also convert one of those infa-feeders (as you can push out just as much as they will eat at a time, and works well with thicker formula), that way you have more control over the flow.

I don't know if you can tell from the pic, but it has a plunger inside that gradually moves the food to the nipple as the baby sucks on the nipple, keeping air out. You can also stick your finger in the bottom to push it up if the food gets stuck. It was a great invention for feeding cereal to babies.

That is a brilliant idea! Thank you! I think it is more natural, too.

Waynette, that's cute. I do the same thing with a syringe, only with the plunger, I can push the food through. It works great with either thin or thick formula. I have no trouble with the syringe, but yours is way cuter. Thanks for sharing.

LOL, my nickname is Ms MacGuiver (remember the tv show where he invented things out of nothing?) I'm constantly trying to figure out how to simplify and make life (and work) easier.
At work I made a "pee stick" for retrieving urine samples :rolleyes: I took a 1x1, 4 ft. pole, attached a 3" wire ring to the bottom (kinda looks like a hockey stick). Instead of chasing big and little dogs around with a bowl trying to catch urine - all I do is drop a 2 ounce (disposable condiment) cup into the ring and stand there! When they squat, gently slip the little cup (at the end of the pole) under them (they don't see me coming at them with a bowl and jump up!) (AND, NO bowl to wash)
Success rate is 99% urine catch!
That's just one of my many many many gadgets. :rolleyes:
You might say I don't have much of a social life :( LOL

That's funny! I'll have to try that the next time my vet needs a urine. You are too much. I'm always doing things like that too. Sounds like the way I used to fill my wrens feeder from the window. Only I used those little applesauce plastic containers that the individual servings come in, attached to a long stick with double sided tape. Worked great! And I didn't have to go out in the cold and rain. My husband is always saying that I'm the most resourceful person he knows. Gee, we could patent these things and make money. LOL. Well thanks, now I'll have to make one of those urine sticks. LOL.
