OK, so I'm getting a little bored of blogging about cloth diapers. Can you even believe it? So I'm going to blog about something I started using recently with Grace, completely unrelated to cloth diapers, or even my store (shock! horror!).
So here it is -- a tip about using something not for its intended purpose, but finding out it works well.
These silicone sno cone cups are absolutely *brilliant* for teaching a baby how to drink from a cup! I don't have to tilt it far to get the liquid into her mouth, and I can pinch it together so that when she drinks from it, it's a small lip. I can also easily see where the liquid is, so that I don't end up tilting it too far and dumping juice all over her. We bought them at Target (tar-jay!) on a trip to the US (yes, we do use them as sno cone cups as well!). I would bet that if you've got a younger baby who won't drink out of a bottle or a sippy, this would do the trick (Grace was just under a year old when I started letting her drink out of these -- obviously I hold it for her!).
So there it is folks. So do you have any tips to offer up? Give us a good tip, and we'll send you a $5.00 gift certificate in return, just because we like good tips (I'm sorry, 'never eat yellow snow' doesn't count!). One gift certificate/person/purchase who posts a tip. Come on, wow me with your ideas!
