Nuby Review and Giveaway

The winers are: Mummy 24 and SFancy

X is finally completely weaned off bottles - as much as it pains me to say it! He's fifteen months old and I finally stopped giving him a bottle before bed. I should have stopped three months ago (according to everyone!) but I just couldn't bring myself to stop. I know I'm not having any more children so I guess I'm hanging onto my baby. Not fair to him so when Nuby contacted me to do a review and giveaway, I pored over the drinking cups to find something X would like instead of a bottle. And I found it! The Sport Sipper.
I love these! X grabbed ahold of it and it was bliss. He's a madman, likes to throw his drinks all over and this can take it. It doesn't spill, it's heavy duty plastic so it can take a beating and it's got the perfect grip for X's little mitts. He loves it, I love it, and best of all it's not a bottle so I have officially weaned my boy! You'll notice that it's good for drinking, and chewing!

They also sent over the gorgeous and wonderful Super Sipper Flip It. Which my 3 1/2 year old daughter loves. It also doesn't spill and when she's not drinking from the straw, she can flip it shut so it travels well. With all the walking around the Heath and Hampstead, having non-spilling drinks for Cate is crucial to my sanity. Again, she loves them, I love them - it's all good.

We used to buy Nuby products in the US which is why I jumped at the chance to review a few products here. I loved the pacifiers (dummies) so they sent over two Cherry Soothers - what I really love about these is the design - they are translucent so you can see X's sweet little lips in an O shape when he has them in his mouth. It is honestly the sweetest thing to see him with one of these. Of course he refuses to let me take a photo of him with one in his mouth so you'll have to take my word on it. I have actually received comments from people while we're out wondering where I got the dummies - they are just that cute!

So I am delighted to be able to share the love. I have two sets of two Nuby sippy cups (or beakers) to giveaway to two lucky winners. Here are the cups.

As you can see you can Flip It and it won't spill. And one of them is insulated! Fabulous stuff!
