Until you have a child you don’t realize the science that goes into picking the correct bottle or sippy cup. I mean, let’s be real from outside the parenthood bubble a bottle is a bottle and a cup is a cup. Moms and dads know the truth though. There is no such thing as a bottle just being a bottle or even a cup just being a cup. If you doubt this try giving a three year old the wrong sippy cup or a baby a new bottle without first getting her approval and see how that ends up!
It was really difficult to find a bottle that JustaBXgirl would take as a breastfeeding baby. I know I wanted to jump for joy when she decided bottles were a thing of the past. As for sippy cups? I don’t like spills so we will be using them for many more moons. In my home even my eight year old nephew drinks from a cup with a cover. So for us it’s really important to find cups that serve the purpose without feeling too babyish.
Tommee Tippee is a brand I’m sure you know and I want to share it’s a brand we trust. Right now we are big fans of their Tuff Stuff tumblers. These tumblers are great for all ages. We have three at home which works out perfectly for JustaBXgirl and my nephews. JustaBXgirl prefers the straw compared to the spout version. I love the steel base because it keeps drinks cool longer than the average cup. I also like that it shows how many ounces it has on the inside so you can keep track of how much your child is drinking. And they come in an array of animals and colors. My favorite is the moose. I have to admit whenever I look at it I think it has eyelashes rather than antlers but that’s part of the fun!
We also use the Freeflow cups at home and on the go. JustaBXgirl likes the patterns on these and I like the durability. We also use them not only for drinks but to pack snacks in when in a rush. I’m always looking for ways to re-purpose items around the house. The Freeflow cups have become my go to for packing items like grapes and blackberries. The best part is once snack time is over JustaBXgirl can use the cup for water or juice leaving more room in my bag not to have to pack bowl and cups.
If your little isn’t quite at the sippy cup stage don’t fret. Tommee Tippee is a winner when it comes to bottles (just ask babies everywhere). They have an easy to hold design for little hands and contain a natural feel nipple that helps breastfed babies adjust to bottles.
But don’t think they’re just about bottles and cups because Tommee Tippee is there to soothe your child even when it’s not feeding time. They have the cutest pacifiers including ones designed for toddlers. JustaBXgirl was never really into a pacifier but I know for some littles they are really important.
