Have you heard of Tommee Tippee? I hadn't until just recently and decided to sign up to try out a bottle and sippy cups for my kiddos. Of course, I have to be honest here. When I see new brand names claiming to sell outstanding items for my kids, I tend to get a little skeptical. "How is one bottle possibly better than another?"
I'm happy to report, that we've been using Tommee Tippee products in our home for a little over a week and I, as a mom, couldn't be happier with them.
First up, I'll tell you about our experience with the Closer To Nature bottles. We were sent one bottle and one pack of 3 months+ bottle nipples for Eliana to try out.
Initially, I thought everything about this bottle looked to be unique but I wasn't sure how Eliana would take to a different bottle and if the nipple would be effective in reducing gassiness. After using it, though, I was quite impressed.
The bottle is molded in such a way that it makes holding it much easier for me. (When Eliana begins to hold her own bottle, this shape will be much easier for her to grasp than a round bottle.) Also, the bottle's nipple is made to bend and flex with Eliana's natural feeding habits. I was a tad bit confused by this at first as I had never witnessed her feeding from a bottle that way. However, she was far less messy using this bottle and seemed less fussy overall. It was actually pretty neat and I was happy that she was so content.
Alex was sent a set of Explora Truly Spill Proof Drink Cups in blue/green. These cups are completely different than the other sippy cups I've seen in stores. They're made for children ages 24 months+ and are specifically designed to help older toddlers learn how to drink from a glass.
