Hi Friends! If you follow me on social media you may remember the what seemed like never ending battle with JZ’s sippy cup. Well…the battle finally ended when he turned 4 and he lost his prized possession sippy cup. Thank god. After a few days of sheer panic, and severe dehydration he came to terms of having to find a new way to drink!
Enabling him to drink out of a cup has been a journey to say the least. Finding a cup he liked took time, many Amazon order and trips to Target, and tons of googling but I’m so happy to repot that these days he’s happily guzzling lots of water, apple juice, and his beloved banana protein shakes out of his new favorite cup. I had so many moms reach out on social media when I was going through the process of looking for a new cup that were battling the same thing (picky kids, moldy straws, hard to clean etc.) that I wanted to share the cup we found that has been working like a charm for us. It’s called the Contigo No Spill Kids Tumbler and since it’s National Handmade Day, I wanted to share the cutest site where I ordered these from, Très Knotty Crochet & Designs on Etsy!
If your kid wants to upgrade from a sippy cup and drink from a tumbler just like you, this is the cup for you and no need to worry about spills. This cup features a no-spill valve in the straw making it impossible to spill, and a seal around the straw offers extra protection against leaks. A soft grip bottom pad helps prevent the tumbler from tipping over and it also fits most car cup holders, making it the perfect companion. When you’re ready to wash it, the spill-proof straw twists apart for an easy clean; plus, the straw, lid, and body are top-rack dishwasher safe.
Now for the fun part, the ladies at Très Knotty Crochet & Designs can personalize the cups any way you want! All you do is provide the following details: Name, Font Color, Font, and Graphic Color and voila! The cutest and most functional cup arrives at your doorstep a few days later (and for only $10!) With Easter just around the corner, and the fun spring colors they offer- this would make the cutest basket stuffer! Plus they have a ton of other cute stuff in their Etsy shop so be sure to poke around HERE!
