My Review of Tommee Tipppee BPA Free Lil Sippee Sipper Cup 10 oz (6 Months) - 2 Pack - Blue/Red

Originally submitted at Toys R Us

Our Explora li'l sippee spill-proof sipper cup is intuitively designed for leak proof, bite free sipping. Made of soft silicone to be easy on tender gums, our integrated valve was designed by a physicist to provide goof-proof, easy drinking, and yet remain truly spill-proof. And the one-piece ...

Great sippee cup!

My son is six months old and with a deployed husband getting him to eat independently on occasion would be a huge blessing. I recently tried a few different trainer/first cups and he couldn't get anything out of them. I bought these Tommee Tippee Sippees because, like a previous poster said, the soft spout seemed closest to a bottle. (We love our Tommee Tippee bottles...) I disagree with the other reviewers though. This is the first cup my six month old has been able to get something out of. We just tried water and at first he was confused what was coming out, but loved it and kept going back for more. They're easy for him to hold, similar to a bottle. Every time he had one with handles he'd just bang it around like a toy. Since it's the only cup that works for him we'll keep using it and probably get more until we go to a straw cup. The only other thing that worked better was a regular cup, but I'm not ready to hand my six month old one of those! These are great cups! Give them a try!

Miscellany Monday

1)  I could use a sister wife today.*  Then someone could watch the fussbucket while I sleep, or shower, or brush my teeth. 

2)  The fussbucket doesn't need sleep.  He can live on pure baby adrenaline.  Since I've been sick he has clearly needed even less sleep because, of course, I need more.  So he wakes up at 2:30 in the morning.  And he doesn't nap for more than 30 minutes.  Do you think my sister wife would get up at 2:30 in the morning so I could sleep?

3)  I always miss my husband, but I miss him more when I'm sick and the fussbucket wants to revert back to newborn sleeping patterns.  My sister wife cannot deploy.

4)  Liam is on the move.  I still put a blanket down on the floor out of habit for him, but what's the point?  He never stays on it.  He scoots off to find things he wants.  Normally these are his walker, the birds on his Inantino Play Time Activity Center or the dog bed.  I'm just counting down to him discovering the dog's water bowl.  That should be fun.

5) Thank God for the jumperoo.  Thank God for the P-cola family loaning us theirs!  Now that Liam is on the move it's about the only way I can contain and entertain him.  Unless I get a sister wife.  She can hold him and entertain him.

6)  My Dyson is clearly my best friend.  Without it the floors Liam wants to scoot around on would be dirty and covered in dog hair. Wouldn't it be helpful to have a sister wife to share in the housecleaning duties?

*Please note* No sister wives were harmed in the making of this blog.  And for those who are getting ready to call my husband or my pastor, I'm not really on the hunt for a sister wife.  This was all a little tongue in cheek.  It's a joke.  I swear.

Wordless Wednesday on a Thursday

My boys are just so cute I can't stand it!

Clearly Cody needs to work out since Liam tackled him! ;)
