Babaste is a holder for baby bottles that will keep almost any bottle in place so a baby can't throw it across the room during their feedings. In fact, once a bottle is securely hooked into your baby's Babaste device, your baby may be able to feed themselves without your help. Each device has a suction cup that will enable it to stick to almost any surface and has an adjustable height so it can be customized to suit the positioning of your baby's face.
The cost of Babaste is $19.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $24.98.

When you're ready to use this bottle holder, you won't need to assemble anything. The first action you'll need to take is to use the suction cup on the bottom of the device to stick it to your chosen surface. You might choose to attach it to a table or to the tray in front of your baby's high chair. If your chosen surface is plastic, you won't have any problems sticking the suction cup to it, and it'll stick to a wide variety of other surfaces, too.
Next, place your baby's bottle in the upper cradle and belt it in by using the colored strap. The strap should be resting somewhere in the middle of the bottle so there's little chance that the bottle will slide backward or forward, and you should buckle it on fairly tight. Unless your baby's bottle is incredibly large, incredibly small, or of an unusual shape, you won't have any major issues with attempting to strap it in.
Once your baby's bottle is secured within your Babaste, you can move the device so that the bottle points slightly upward, slightly downward, or to either side. If the bottle's resting at a level that's too high or too low in comparison to your baby's face, you can also adjust the height of the post that holds up the cradle. After you've found the ideal height and angle for your baby, allow them to drink from their bottle as usual.
The Babaste bottle holder comes in three colors, including pink, blue, and gray. No matter what shade you choose, the post between the base and the cradle will be white. When it comes to color choice, you can either choose the color you think your baby prefers or choose the one that you prefer. If you've got two or three babies, you may want to select a different colored bottle holder for each, so you don't get any of the holders mixed up.
You'll be able to adjust the height of this bottle holder quickly, whenever you need to, by either pulling on the post in the middle or pushing it down. Pulling on it will make the bottle holder taller while pushing on it will make it shorter. You'll likely have to make this device taller as your baby grows, but you might also have to adjust the height in either direction if your baby changes chairs or their posture.
Although each Babaste will pivot in almost a full circle, each is virtually spillproof, since each will return your baby's bottle to its original position when the baby lets go. Therefore, no matter how much your baby pulls on their device as they drink, you probably won't have to mop spilled milk off the floor or any piece of furniture.
Almost any bottle can be strapped into one of these holders, so even if your baby doesn't use the same bottle every day, they'll be able to use their holder. That means you won't need to worry about always keeping a bottle of a specific size and shape clean when you think you'll want to use your Babaste.
If you've got more than one baby of your own who drinks from a bottle or are caring for more than one at a time, you'll likely find these bottle holders extremely helpful. They'll be able to hold up the bottles of all the babies under your care so you won't have to constantly move back and forth between them, tipping different bottles towards different mouths. Plus, you'll never be distracted from watching your charges due to having to bend over and wipe or mop up a milk spill.
Babies who are old enough to use all their fingers to grasp an object will actually be able to help themselves develop motor skills and strength by using a Babaste. They'll develop strength by pulling their bottle this way and that so they can make it reach their mouth, and exercise dexterity by not letting it slip through their fingers. As a result, you as a parent or caregiver will get a break from holding their bottle, and they may end up more prepared for elementary school than some of their peers.
Elementary school-aged children may want to learn to feed their baby brother, sister or cousin, but they may not be coordinated enough to do it with just a bottle and their two hands. However, with the baby's bottle strapped securely into a Babaste, an older child will be able to learn the basics of feeding without running the risk of dropping the bottle or somehow irritating the baby. The baby will get their food in a timely manner, and the older child will be satisfied with their caregiving practice.
The Babaste will stick to most surfaces, but it won't stick to absolutely any surface in the world. You won't have a problem sticking it to a plastic tray in front of a high chair, but you might have a problem if your baby's tray is made of wood. It seems there's no way to determine whether it'll stick to your furniture before you obtain one, so in that regard, you'll just have to hope for the best. In a worst-case scenario, you might have to move your baby out of their usual seat to use this bottle holder properly.
Even if you can get your bottle holder to stick to all the flat surfaces of your choice, its suction cups may wear out over time, especially if you move the holder frequently. You can reduce the chances of this happening by leaving it suctioned in the same place most of the time, but it still won't have an endless life. Once its suction cup is ineffective and stops sticking to things, it'll basically be useless since it won't stand up straight.
