Happy New Year! Here’s another terrific review from Kristin. Bon Apetit!
Have I mentioned how much I love Tommee Tippee products? Because I do. A ton. They are BPA and phthalate-free and created with intelligence. Clearly they have done their research (and talked to Moms).
Tommee Tippee recently sent me a number of feeding/weaning items to try with MD (thank you to Tommee Tippee for the items)! MD refuses to take his milk from any form of bottle, but when I placed the pumped milk into the new Explora soft spout sippy cup, he was immediately intrigued. And, willing! Finally, after six months of random feeding pit stops and shortened dinners, we are able to feed MD while we are away from the house! Now, I can feel free to get that haircut that I’ve been putting off for months (hmm, since last November actually). Anyway, the Explora Sippy Cup is completely spill proof and perfect for six months and older
And, with the travel bottle warmer (and food warmer), I can warm up his milk (or his baby food) wherever we go! This is truly the best thing ever! There is a thermal thermos inside a large warming carafe that you can fill with hot water to warm your bottles or baby food jars. No longer will we place a chilly bottle under the warm tap water in a rest area until it is lukewarm…or between our legs while in a traffic jam to “heat” it up. The only downside to the warmer is the size…it does not fit inside my diaper bag…but, it easily stashes inside the car, and that’s good enough for me. I recently tried this out on our trip home for the holidays, and the water was still boiling hot after four hours in the car! Worked like a charm, especially when we hit traffic and could not get off the road for a quick feeding.
Other exciting products from Tommee Tippee include the weaning bowls, the Explora feeding spoons, and the Explora Easi-mat. The weaning bowls, spoons, and mat are BPA and phthalate-free and dishwasher and microwave safe, so you can feed your baby without worrying about the chemicals. The easi-mat attaches simply to the weaning bowls, so your baby cannot dislodge the bowl from the table. This has proven to be perfect for MD, as he is so intrigued by the bowl and spoons, but does not have the control to keep from knocking things off his tray. The mat keeps the bowl in place, even for the most ornery eater. The spoons are for nine months and older, but MD loves to gum on them and I know they are safe for him to do so. He also loves to teethe on the “Chewther!” It helps support oral development, and he loves to swing it back and forth as well.
Tommee Tippee has a ton of other great products including Explora weaning bowls with lids, heat-sensing weaning spoons, and a variety of “sippee” cups for all ages! They make perfect baby shower gifts, and are great for new parents!
