For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Things I Love Thursday

Today I'm participating in Things I Love Thursday over at the Diaper Diaries. Hop on over there for more great things!

Thanks to Weelicious for introducing me to to this great product!!!

Tilty Cups!!!

They just flat out rock, that's all there is to it.

We struggled for months with other sippy cups from the grocery store, we tried gerber, playtex, plus several others with no go. My girls were just not at all interested, and we kept going back to bottles. I felt like a looser because at 18 months old my girls we refusing sippy cups.

Regular sippy cups have 2 problems. #1) Poor design. In order to get any liquid out of them they have to tilt up the cup till it's almost vertical. Most kids are not coordinated enough to manage that at this age. #2) They have to suck really hard in order to get anything out of them because of the valve. Now, valves are good in that they don't allow any dribbles to drip out onto your carpet, but they also make it much harder for kids to drink. My kids got VERY impatient with valves and would end up crying and throwing their cups in frustration because it was just too hard to suck anything out of them.

Enter the Tilty cup! They have a slanted plastic piece inside the cup that forces the liquid towards the spout without having to tilt it up very high. Brilliant! Plus, no valve! They're slightly messier than a regular sippy, but my kids associate milk with cuddle time anyway so they're usually right there with me when they're drinking milk. If I am going to leave them unsupervised with a sippy I just use one of the old valve type sippies. BUT, they prefer the Tilty over regular sippies simply because they're so much easier to drink from.

Plus, they have a lot of benefits that any mom would love. BPA and PVC free plastic. Machine washable. And they're pretty cheap, only $6 for a 2 pack. So you get a lot of extra bonus features for roughly the same price as a regular sippy.

If you're interested in getting your very own Tilty cups you can order directly from their website.

Here's a picture of my happy girls enjoying their Tilty cups!

Ooooh, I am going to have to check on those. When we go from breastfeeding to sippy cups it can be trying times.
Happy TILT!

I would appreciate it if you would help me spread the word on my giveaway. It is for cloth diapers handmade here in the USA by a WAHM.

My kids have pretty much outgrown sippys but I agree, they stink. And I hate all the pieces to clean. If I ever need them again, I am checking these out!!

Your girls are adorable!

I have twin granddaughters and I am going to look into the Tilty cup, thank you.

I'll have to try these! I'm getting extremely frustrated with our sippy cups! I'm glad to know that Sleep Number customer service is good because we might need to call them soon!!! It's been a while since I had a good night sleep without sinking to the bottom! I think my neighbors should go to bed earlier! Lol!

I'll have to keep these in mind for when we need them! Pretty web design, btw!

Sounds like really cool cups. Wish I knew about those when we were trying to get Lindsay to drink from cups. She didn't take to sippies either. Lathen and Leann have done well with them.
