The other day Travis came to me and told me about a news show he saw on sippy cups. He said they gave a number for you to check on the bottom of your cup.. if it has the recycle numbers 3, 6 or 7… then you should toss the cup.
This website has a great post about this topic… so CLICK HERE to get the details.
I was amazed when I looked through the collection of sippy cups we had.. that a good majority of them were 3, 6 and 7! So I tossed them… and kept the few we had that were ok.
We use SIGG Bottles for juices and water… they work well..
For milk though it isnt recommended you use siggs. So I still needed a cup safe for milk products.
I hate nasty sippy cups that get milk particles all stuck in the tip… and after time you just have to buy new ones.
Yesterday I purchased some PLAYTEX Sippy cups. Kelly recommended them 😉 and they were one of the “safe” numbers… so I did.
Thankfully he took to the Playtex cup just fine!
I may purchase Caleb a tumbler by playtex. This is a cup more suited for larger kids… Caleb really is to old for sippy cups now. I think I use it out of convenience.
Just thought Id let all those moms out there be aware of this warning… you’d assume all baby products would be safe… after all they are made for babies! but the way this world is today.. you can never be to safe.
ALSO as a plug.. we love our MABEL LABELS! I use them on any cup we buy for the boys.
They work so nicely! I purchased them with our last name on it though… rather than Taite or Caleb. This way we can use the same labels for all our children. I ordered a set of 80 I believe when Caleb was born.. and still have plenty to go around.
You can also put allergies on the labels as well. Very handy especially if your child has lots of them.
Off to blow dry my hair 🙂
Taites still poopy today… but seems in high spirits. Thanks for the prayers…
