What they say:

“Some parents say that DoddleBags are the most innovative product they've bought! Designed by architect mum of two, Nadine, DoddleBags are versatile reusable spout pouches that will save you time, mess and hassle. With this unique combination of features: 100ml, a comfy size for your child's hands but also perfect on the plane in your hand luggage; best quality plastic free from phthalates, PVC and BPA; gusseted so that they stand up, great for storing in the fridge; see-through on one side, calibrated, freezable and dishwasher safe; sturdy leak-proof zip; colourful anti-choke caps and stickers for easy recognition.”

Would you recommend DoddleBags to other mums?    

Definitely. At first I was unsure what I would use DoddleBags for but I have to say the uses are endless! I love the fact you can also buy attachments like a spoon which would be very handy with my 6 month old. I also love the idea of buying the paintbrush attachment as it means nice clean fun for my children and no mess for me! They are compact and lightweight and we'll made meaning that liquids do not leak out of them. Fabulous product!

How did this product make your life easier?     

There are lots of ways DoddleBags make life easier as a mum. I use it to put my pureed food for my 6 month old to take out with us. I've used them to have a drink in my bag for my 6 year old when we have been to the park. I even use them to put shampoo and body wash in for when my daughter goes swimming. It's much easier to take a small lightweight product than what I would normally have to take.

What changes would you make to this product?

The size. A slightly larger size would be great for things like drinks as my 6 year old who loves the product is constantly needing it to be refilled as she can drink the max limit in one go. Otherwise I wouldn't change them. They really are great!

These DoddleBags are amazing for weaning and so much more. They are easy to fill as they stand up, they are freezable and washable. They are so easy to use and convenient. They have different coloured lids and co-ordinating stickers which make it easy to label/ colour code the various pouches.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The DoddleBags really make weaning a doddle...I can fill these pouches, freeze, defrost and use straight from the pouch. Saves any extra mess when out and about just to squeeze straight on to a spoon. These pouches are also great for my toddler as I can make up smoothies and she can drink it straight from the spout.

Absolutely fabulous product, really cost effective as they are reusable. They also have many different uses once the weaning stage is over so a great value product. I love DoddleBags as it's so easy and really makes things quicker and easier. Great for at home or when out and about. The spout also means you can use them for lumpier food as the weaning stage progresses.

What changes would you make to this product?

An additional purchase is the DoddleSpoon attachment that attaches directly to the pouch, I think this product would be the best it could be if it came with a spoon attachment as standard. This would just make the product even more convenient and easy to use. A handy product with various functions.

They are easy to store in the fridge or freezer and carry in your changing bag. When they have been used they don't make a mess of take up any space in your bag. Easy to fill and to clean. They take up hardly any space when not in use and so easy to store away when not needed. Love the idea of being able to use the with the paint brush too and will be keeping an eye out for them. The bright lids are great as well as the stickers.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Makes taking your own food out and about easier when weaning. You can fill the pouches easily and it is mess free which makes batch cooking and freezing a doddle. Can use for toddler with smoothies and yogurts so means you can have more options of things to take out with you and healthier options too.

Would you choose this product to win?

Space saving, ease of use. Multiple uses and can be used for wide range of ages - into adulthood. Storing both filled and empty pouches is great and takes up no space. It is mess free and you can use without having to take spoons if you want. Toddlers find it fun to use and makes giving "messy" items a bit easier as there tends to be no spills when I give liquid treats with this.

What changes would you make to this product?

Maybe the pouches could be a bit bigger as seven month old son who is in early stages of weaning has finished a pasta dish that was stored in one of these bags. I can't see me being able to have whole meals in these for much longer. Otherwise I think they are great and can't think of much more to improve them.

I have found these DoddleBags to very useful as when I was making my own purees for my daughter it has saved a lot of money, and I can reuse them over again. They are great as they small, durable and have colourful stickers and lids too. My friend has even gone out and brought some for her daughter.

How did this product make your life easier?     

These DoddleBags are a brilliant product as I have used them on all the family members, I even used them on holiday. DoddleBags have made my life so much easier as when I have gone out with my little one I have been able to make her some food and I know what's gone in it and it's the right amount for her.

DoddleBags are a life saver and when out and about with my little one feeding her with one of these DoddleBags have saved me a lot of money on jars and other pouches. I have recommended these to other mums to use above any others out there.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Doddlebags are just so useful! We have used them for food for my two children aged 6 and 23 months. But also for our toilettries on holiday - they are the perfect size for flying - and storing breast milk. They are well designed and easy to use and clean.

How did this product make your life easier?  

Yes because I don't tend to buy convenience foods but have struggled using pots to transport things like smoothies and yoghurts when on the go. There is no need to take a spoon with you, they don't leak and when empty take up much less room than pots do. These bags store well in the freezer as they lie flat and also in the fridge where they can stand up meaning I can store more than with traditional pots.

DoddleBags can be used for both traditional and baby led weaning. They have so many uses for a family beyond weaning that I think it will become a staple item in my handbag, just filled with different things. I've already filled one with suncream for my bag for instance. This product is brilliant value for money, it is reuseable which is important to me as I like to minimise waste and it is easy to use. Perfect!

What changes would you make to this product?

I honestly cannot think of anything I would change about this product. It is well designed, easy to use, comes in a pack of ten with colour co-ordinating labels. It is environmentally friendly, easy to clean and my kids loved using it. A really useful weaning product with wider uses.
