A Sippy Cup That Grows With Your Child – A Philips Avent Story

This moment has come too quickly. My little baby is ready and wanting to use a cup.

I remember with my first daughter I was always wanting the next milestone, pushing her to do what was next. But with my second everything is a surprise.

It’s a surprise when she is able to sit up by herself because I’m not pushing her too early. It’s a surprise when she wants to start eating with her hands and not pureed mush on a spoon. And it has been a surprise that when I offered her the Penguin Sippy Cup that she took to it naturally. She’s growing, and it’s wonderful and bittersweet at the same time! 

For our whole Philips Avent Story, here are our journeys with their: Pump, Natural Bottle and Classic Bottle.

These Penguin Sippy Cups (they are available is 3 colours) are the cutest! And they have passed my “mommy checklist”: 

Dishwasher Safe? Check.

BPA Free Material? Check.

Leak Free? Check.

Easy Free Flow Spout? Check.

The best part of this cup is that the handles are built into the lid. I have tried too many baby/toddler cups where the handles are separate and I end up loosing one of the parts. Less is more in my books!

Prenatal & Postnatal Smoothie Recipe

baby booster prenatal protein formula review

Eating for two? The first months of pregnancy are either the hardest or the easiest depending on if you suffer from morning sickness or not.

Although I am far past my last pregnancy, I am still breastfeeding and finding a protein powder I am comfortable ingesting with was proving to be difficult. When I heard of Baby Booster‘s prenatal protein powder that is OB/GYN recommended I had to try it!

After testing out their 4 flavours (mocha, pina colada, superfruit punch and vanilla), I fell in love with the Tahitian Vanilla. When you open the package it smells like cake mix! Yum! And it had no bad aftertaste, so you can add your favourite frozen fruits to it and have a delicious result.

For my exact Cherry Banana Chia Seed Postnatal Smoothie, you can find it below!

Black & Navy | Athleisure Style

I’m so excited that summer is finally here, I’m finally able to shed the layers of outerwear and show off this fun outfit. And what can I say? Athleisure speaks directly to my personal style (something like a modern day Sporty Spice). 

Is athleisure your style?

Everyone knows marbled everything is at the top of your wish list: iPhone cases, counter tops (bathrooms, floors, walls, or is that just me?). Native Shoes just released their marbled kids collection – and this collection is full of cute cotton candy colours and glitter!

As always I am impressed by the odor free, shock absorbent, hand washable, beast free (vegan). They are the perfect closed toe summer shoe for my toddler.
