Nifty!




Check it out, these were taken 10 minutes ago! Bought this cool bottle for Bryn last week, the top compartment (the clear part) is for storing snacks and has a flip top lid, while the straw (which folds down when not in use) goes through the top compartment into the bottom compartment for drinks... Thusly, toddlers can manage snacks and drink with one easy container, not having to worry about juggling two and possibly spilling the contents (do I sound like an ad yet?)...

Anyhoo, B just couldn't get the hang of this new contraption, specifically the sucking through the straw part...

So, anyway, just a while ago, he gets a hold of Erik's drink glass containing reminants of rice milk, and has a swig, from all the smacking of his lips I could tell he LIKED the rice milk, so I poured a little into his sippy cup (previously only used for ebm and water), and he gulped it down! (it was only a tiny bit) So, then I put a bit into his new drink bottle with some water mixed in, and lo and behold, he started sucking for dear life!!! Hahahaha!

So, this is great! It means he can drink water this summer on hot days (of course, I'll still be breastfeeding him all through the day, but it means I can also get a break once in a while), and it means that next time he gulps down all the ebm I've left with Dad if I should want to, say, go have a coffee all by my lonesome, or heavens! see a movie! He can still have this thirst quenched, if not with plain water, then with watered down rice milk (if he's upset)... Oh happy day!

(oh, notice how the straw and the drinks section of the bottle are a solid colour??? So convenient for parents wanting to discretely put Coke in their toddler's drink container, don't you think?)

I reckon the type of ppl who'd give their children coke wouldnt give a rats arse about hiding it-because it would probably never occur to them there was any problem with that. *sigh*

Meanwhile great idea-I'm on the lookout for one of those!
