We’ve covered backpacks for daycare and school, so now it’s on to drink bottles – another essential for life outside the home!
We have these fab Contigo Cups at home and find them fantastic as they are truly leak proof. They come in 250ml and 500ml sizes with the Autoseal feature. The smaller size is great for two to four- year-olds but we upgraded to the larger size once the boys were bigger. No more soggy bags with these little beauties! Bonito Baby carries the full range starting from $11.95.
This is a brand which produces beautiful stainless steel drink bottles which appeal to children and last a long time. Stainless steel is a safe option for drinking and won’t rust or leach nasties into your child’s water. Haggus and Stookles stock the full range of Cheeki bottles starting at $16.95. There are lots of accessories available such as a handle for young toddlers and an insulated pouch.
With a range of lids to suit baby through to kid, the Onya drink bottle range is sure to suit every last member of the family. Choose from teat, sippy and sports loop lids. Made from safe stainless steel, they start at $15.95 from Itty Bitty Greenie.
It has a lifespan of 100 years yet is fully recyclable so the Ecotanka is one drink bottle you’ll be getting your money’s worth from. With plain styling and free of loud designs, this is one for the crowd who prefer a toned down look. Available in a range of sizes and caps from $14.90 at Baby Eco Store.
These are the brand new designs from the Thermos Foogo range and now I’m at risk of replacing my plain ones! They are insulated, easy to clean and spare parts are available. The sippy cup is a great option for babies and young toddlers as it has handles and a soft spout. The straw bottles are $24.95 and the sippy cups are $26.95 from Haggus and Stookles.
The serene, artistic beauty of Earthlust bottles is undeniable for those who don’t want something cutesy. We love these vessels which convert from bottle with teat to sippy cup with spout, all while insulating the contents for up to four hours. They’re $39.95 each from Modern Little Munchkins. See also the divine water bottles stocked at Eco Child which start at $21.95 for a 380ml bottle.
While we’re on the topic of insanely beautiful bottles, have a look at these stainless steel ones for babies by Organic Kidz. Regular readers will know of my passion for polkadots and right now I’m a little envious I don’t have a bub to bestow these pretty things upon. Available from Green Chickadee starting at $19.95.
