Sassy Baby. Grow up Cups and More Favorites.

BurritoBuzzSassyGrowUpCups.jpgIt is no secret that BurritoBuzz moms are always on the lookout for new sippy cups. We generally don’t like them. They are always leaking, or molding, or even better yet breaking. Its so annoying!  I really wish companies made made baby products better, but alas they are made to last for a short time. I have been introduced to my new favorite sippy cups and  I am already throwing out others to replace them with the NEW Sassy Baby Grow Up Cups! Sassy Baby has a whole new line of products and I am excited to share some of my favorites with you!

GROW UP CUPS 

The best way to transition to an open cup with no lid is a cup that doesn’t have a spout at all. Sassy has created a cup my little girl calls her “big girl – no lid cup” and gives me the ease of actually having a lid to keep all those messes trapped. BK#2 was so intrigued that he actually started giving up his bottle! YESSSSS!!

About the Grow Up Cups.

  • Revolutionary 360° design – sip 360° around the rim with no spout or straw!
  • Available in 7 oz., 9 oz. and 12 oz. sizes
    • Both the 7 oz. and 12 oz. sizes are available in a single pack
    • 9 oz. cup is available in convenient double packs
  • Easy grip handles (sold with 7 oz. cups) can be removed and used with each cup size! > I wasn’t super impressed with the handles because they didn’t snap in or stay on the cups very well. They are adorable and work great, but made the cup a toy because BK#2 spent his entire time with the handle just playing with it.img_2998
  • BPA Free & Phthalate Compliant
  • Pediatric dentist preferred over spouted cup
  • The lid is easily taken apart into three pieces to make cleaning easy!
  • Lids are interchangeable within cup sizes! I love that you don’t have to even look to see if they match or anything. Snap the membrane on the lid, twist, and off they can go! img_2996
  • Silicon valve automatically seals when your child stops drinking to eliminate messes
  • Slender enough for toddlers to grip with one hand.
  • Grow Up Cups come in MANY different colors and prints, slogan cups, and even a fruit infuser cup with a little carrying handle!
    • The Infuser Cup is a natural way to flavor water. About 1/4 cup of fruit can put placed in the removable fruit infuser.
  • Price – A 9oz or 7oz  2 pack retails for $10.99 (Currently on sale on Amazon for $7.17!)  and one 12oz cup retails for $5.99.

These cups are awesome and super functional! Although they aren’t completely leak proof they definitely are leak resistant! If your child drops them and leaves them laying they might drip a little, or if they shake them up-side-down, yes they will leak, but sitting in their chair drinking at a normal they did not leak on them! The only real time i had an issue with the Grow UP Cups leaking was when BK#2 shook it playing. Really, most “sippy cups” leak when shook.

 

FIRST SOLIDS FEEDING BOWL WITH SPOONIMG_2965.jpg

  • Ergonomic shaped bowl offers a variety of single-handed grips for the caregiver
  • 2 divided compartments keep foods separate.
  • Snap-on lid for portability. – I wish the lid fit better. I trust it to keep foods cold in the fridge, but I would not put it in the diaper bag for travel out of fear it would pop off.
  • Includes  soft silocon-like Sassy Transitional Feeding Spoon
  • Assorted boy/girl colors
  • Price- $5.99IMG_2972.jpg

I cant express how much I wish I would have had this when BK#1 was an infant! The little spot for the spoon to sit is an amazing way to hold it when you’re feeding a child of any age! When BK#1 was a baby I lost track of how many times she would knock the baby food out of my hand! With this bowl you can hold it more securely. Its seriously the best design for a bowl that I have seen in a LONG TIME!

 

ON-THE-GO FORK AND SPOON SETIMG_2961.jpg

  • Travel case keeps child-sized utensils clean in diaper bag!
  • Properly sized for little hands. The curved handles make it so easy for little hands to get the food in their mouth without dumping it first. IMG_2973.jpg
  • Assorted blue and pink cases available
  • Price – $4.99 for the set. 

My little ones did great with these utensils and the spoon is my favorite specifically, because it is so easy for babies to use on their own. The fork is very rounded and doesn’t stab tougher food that well.

 

 

BATHTIME PALS & PULL&GO BOATBurritoBuzzSassyBathToys.jpg

  •  The bathtime pals are a set of 5 squirt and float characters
  • Characters offer a variety of colors and textures
  • Sized for little hands to grasp and squirt
  • Unlike some squirty bath toys theses are almost a soft silicon material!
  • The pull&go boat has a silicon character as well with a plastic and string pull to make the 2 paddles zip through the water.
    • Available in pelican or penguin characters
    • No batteries required
  • Price- Bathtime pals are on sale for $6.54 and the Pull & Go boat is $7.33

My littles LOVE bath toys. When I told them that I had new ones for them they were SO EXCITED! These toys inspires imagination and works with their fine motor development. Win-win in my book!

We are so happy with Sassy Baby and cannot wait to see what else they come out with. Sassy Baby products are a must have for any baby registry!  This company is coming out with new products all the time and they really do have your family in mind when they are creating! Be sure to visit them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube. They will have a new shop open on their website very soon at www.sassybaby.com. Be sure to check it out for some awesome new product. I will be sure to share when it is up!

Silikids Siliskin Sippy & Straw Cup {Review}

When you’re the parent of a toddler, you know all about sippy cups. You know how important a good sippy cup is and how necessary it is for it to be leak-free. Nothing makes me angrier th5FnjE1uVan a sippy cup that leaks everywhere. If I wanted my toddler to spill sticky liquids everywhere, I would just give her a regular cup without a lid. What would make a sippy cup even better is a sippy lid that is universal and fits on any cup. While searching for a such a lid, I came across Silikids Siliskin Sippy Cup and Silicone Straw Cup. After reaching out to Silikids, I was kindly sent a fantastic sippy cup and straw cup.

Silikids is an innovative company, started in 2006, that’s main focus is products made of silicone. Silicone is a safe alternative to chemical-laced plastic. Silikids products are made of 100% food-grade silicone and they’re easy s500774824218195250_p40_i15_w640to clean and super easy to use.

Silikids silicone is:

  • Safe
  • Durable
  • Free of BPA, bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates.

I love using silicone cups instead of plastic when I can, and I just love Silikids’ sippy and straw cups! The cups are thick and extremely durable, my toddler is so rough with her cups and it’s really held up, it pretty much looks like I just took it out of the box. The lids are incredible! The lids are so soft, flexible and stretchy. To get liquid out of the spout, you have to gently bite down and suck, making it truly leak-free. The straw cup does leak but I chalk it up to being a regular straw. I love that they can be used with practically any kind of cup (depending on the width of the cup), as it stretches around the rim. It is secure enough to where it can be thrown and tossed around but it doesn’t budge from the cup. I love being able to just throw the silicone lid in my purse and take it with us when we go out to eat and not have to worry about bringing a sippy cup for my daughter. I just put the lid on a regular cup at the restaurant and she’s good to go!s500774824218195250_p41_i12_w640I give Silikids Siliskins Sippy Cup and Straw Cups a 5 out of 5 stars. Silikids’ cups are new staples in our household. I love how travel friendly they are and how easy they are to clean and use! I will say I can’t put the lid on the cup with one hand (as my 4 month old is s500774824218195250_p49_i2_w640always in my arms) but that’s the only “bad” thing I can say about it. Silikids has a lot of awesome and innovative products, we’ve even reviewed a few of them – Silikids Silicone Spoons & Bags and the Silikids Silibib. Be sure to check out their website to see their entire product line!

Don’t forget to follow Silikids on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for new releases and sales!

Sippy Cup Product Review

There is anything but a shortage of sippy cups in our house! We have tried everything under the sun, so I thought I would go ahead and review a few that we have tried! (Because lets be honest, we can’t spend $100 to find the perfect one!)

Avent 12 oz Straw Cups

(9.99 for a 2 pack at Babiesrus)

This cup is technically 18months+ but if your child can suck from a straw this is the way to go.

Philips-AVENT-2-Pack-12--pTRU1-12110392dt

Pros

-It really is leak proof! I filled this cup with water and shook like crazy, and it did pretty well. I don’t think my child could shake hard enough (as I was) to get it to leak.

-The lid twists shut so the straw is protected from germs when not used.

-The size is perfect for tiny hands; he holds it on his own.

Cons

-When cleaning the cup, it comes apart into 5 pieces

-The lid can be a challenge to get on and off…and back together!

over all, we love these cups and our son does too.

Playtex Training Time Lil’ Grippers Straw Trainer

(5.99 for one at Babiesrus)

This cup is for 4months+

Playtex-TrainingTime-BPA-Free-Lil--pTRU1-18024557dt

Pros

-Very easy for little hands to hold

-Teaches child to use a straw

– Doesn’t leak for the most part

Cons

-So many parts to figure out! Not easy to get back together.

-If dropped it WILL leak!

-Not very big

This cup was a really nice cup for us! My son learned to use it very quickly, unfortunately he dropped it once and it broke! We now just use the handles on another Playtex cup, (review for that cup below!) which works really great!

Playtex Anytime (non-insolated)

(6.99 for a 2 pack at Babiesrus)

This cup is for 9months+

Playtex-2-Pack-AnyTime-Spout--pTRU1-8523524dt

Pros

-Leak proof

-Easy to hold

-Easy to clean (only one rubber piece inside)

Cons

-Lid can be hard to get on right

This is our everyday water cup, and is very easy to use! I love that there aren’t a lot of parts to get back together, and they are so easy to keep clean!
