Get the Goods Giveaway!

Piggy-backing off of my "Food for Thought" post, I thought it was time for another giveaway!! Get ready, because this one is GOOOOOOD! :)

It also makes a great "mango-masher" :)
I'm going to combine two products into one giveaway because to me, they seem to go together. B has been breastfed since day one. I was lucky, he was a natural, and I had the opportunity to stay at home with him. He never really took a bottle. When he did, we used--Tommee Tippee closer to nature bottles (after TONS of research) They were a great transition for my little B with their breastfeeding friendly design. When we started looking into sippy cups, Tommee Tippee was one of the brands I wanted to try. We had picked up a sippy cup with a straw, but I wanted B to learn how to "tip" a cup to get something out. To me, it seemed it may  help the transition to tipping a *real* cup to drink! Tommee Tippee was gracious enough to provide me with samples of their Li'l Sippee Spill Proof Trainer cup from their Explora line. Safety is my number one priority with anything I give to B. These cups are BPA and phlalate free as well as being dishwasher safe. A HUGE plus in my book! We've been playing with these cups for a while now. The age limit on them is 7-12 months. B started using it at about 6 months, and although the bulb-shaped bottom gets a little heavy when full he was still able to tip it, bang it, throw it, and not cause water to go everywhere! It did take him a few weeks of real practice to get the hang of tipping and sucking at the same time. He thought the spout was like a straw and would just try to suck on that while holding the cup. So much disappointment for a such a little guy! :) You will get your chance to win a pair of these sippy's but in case you don't win, Tommee Tippee is now available at Target and Target.com in addition to Babies 'R Us!

 What goes better with cups than dishes!! That's right, 2 giveaways in one!! This one from Talisha at Modern Mommy!! Check out my review of her store here and keep reading to check out one of her favorite (and one of my NEW favorite) products!


Testing out watermelon...no staining!
It seems everything in kid world is either wood or plastic. Baby/Kid dishes are generally no exception. I'm trying to swap out plastics for glass in my house (i.e. plastic food storage that is past it's prime) but I haven't really found an alternative for kid's dishes. After B so delicately dropped a glass plate while out to dinner, glass has not really been an option for us. Enter Zoe B Organics. Zoe B makes sustainable anti-plastic toys, cute hats, teethers, and dishes...yes, DISHES! They're called "Fantastic Anti-Plastic Dishes". Made from corn, they are  BPA and phlalate free AND dishwasher safe!! Did you skip over the "made from corn" part? This means they are 100% biodegradable! They feel just like plastic, clean just as easily, and are totally shatterproof when B decides to throw them on the ground! One look at these and I can see why Talisha was so excited about them! The giveaway set includes one plate, one bowl, and one cup. One lucky winner will get the set, but everyone else can pick there's up locally at Modern Mommy!

One lucky winner will get BOTH gifts! One set of sippy cups from Tommee Tippee and one set of dishes by Zoe B from Modern Mommy! Be sure to fill out the Rafflecopter below!

  5. J's first food was sweet potato. He loved it- his tummy did not. After that, I got a baby bullet and started pureeing things. He's doing great now with purees and using the mesh bad feeder thing. Just had a great lunch of Avocado :) He doesn't quiet get finger foods yet, but I keep putting them out there for him to try.
