Choosing the coolest party supplies for your birthday is a time-honored tradition at our house, and this year I’m pretty sure the winner will be these adorable color your own paper cups from the Oh Happy Day party shop. These coloring cups are like a fun craft, party favor, and of course, drinking cup, all rolled into one. And definitely more fun than scribbling kids’ initials with Sharpies to cut back on those half-finished cups of lemonade. Related: Oh Happy Day party store: everything you need, except the cake. I think the cups make the perfect activity for those first 15 slow minutes of a kid’s...Read More

It’s “please drink more water, kids” season around here. But you know that feeling at the end of the day when there are little stacks of drinking glasses filling the dishwasher or sink because each of your kids was thirsty and used a new glass about eleven times that day and you can hardly bear to have to clean or put away every single one? Well the Kupp’ Kid Safe Drinking Glasses are about to solve my mess problems with the loveliest little drinking glasses ever. Designed by a smart mom of three, the 6-ounce glass features a grippy, BPA-free silicone sleeve to keep...Read More
Our readers recently went nuts for Sip Snap lids, silicone drink covers that stretch to fit over any glass, turning it into a sippy. Well clearly it’s a trend because now CMP favorite Silikids has just released new silicone drink covers too, along with some other fun products that keep mealtime colorful–and a lot less messy–for families. When my youngest turned three I went on a rampage, determined that we would be a sippy-cup free home and my children would know how to drink from a regular glass, darn it. But there are times that visiting friends’ kids come over, and I...Read More
My kids do really well drinking out of actual cups, but sippies and cups with straws are a fixture for my little ones who still tend to spill a little. Or, on bad days, more than they actually get in their mouths. That’s why I’m really digging the clever new SipSnap lids by Double Double. This Kickstarter campaign (get in now!) is introducing SipSnap silicone lids stretch to fit over the top of any kind of cup, turning it into a kids’ drinking cup instantly. I’ve actually tried to do something similar by pairing random lids with cups I have around,...Read More
The sippy cup. Ah, how I wish we were past this stage of life. For now I accept my fate that is the avalanche of cups and lids falling on my head every time I open the cabinet. My disdain however only makes me more appreciative of those times I find a sippy cup that is easy to manage and stands up to the elements- and by elements I mean aggressive toddler. We love pretty much everything that inventive company Zo-li does, which is why they’re a mainstay in our Baby Shower Gift Guide, and this new entry is...Read More
I admit that I was pretty skeptical of the stainless steel baby bottle trend, and never could actually make the leap. But now that my baby is of sippy cup age, I am pretty intrigued by the idea of stainless steel sippy cups. The Pura Kiki stainless steel toddler bottle has become a fixture in the hands of my 17-month old, pretty much converting me from the slew of plastic sippy cups that are stuffed in my kitchen drawers. They just wear so well compared to the plastic that looks beaten up pretty quickly, and I love how easy they are to wash....Read More
With two kids under four in our household, we are huge fans of Munchkin. From eating essentials to bath time fun, they’ve hooked a lot of mamas up over the years. So I was psyched to get a sneak peak at their new lineup, only to discover three really helpful, innovative new Munchkin items for feeding, sleeping and potty training just out this year. Click Lock Sippy Cup Leaking sippy cups are the bane of my existence. There’s nothing worse than finding water or juice spilled all over the inside of your diaper bag–I’ve even had to replace a...Read More
As a glass-is-half-full kind of person, I am thrilled to read that the FDA has (finally) agreed to ban the use of BPA in all baby bottles and spill-proof cups. OK, sure, Europe, Canada and China, along with a handful of U.S. states, have already made this move. And I know that the words BPA-free have already been on just about every baby bottle and sippy cup label for the past couple of years. But I’ll give the FDA credit for issuing the ban, even if it seems to be coming a little late and really doesn’t go far...Read More
I don’t remember having trouble learning how to use a straw but, then again, I’m about four decades past that stage in life. It was my kids who made me realize that “straw use” was going to be another one of those odd little skills I was going to have to teach them, along with using a napkin instead of their shirt. For those of you just entering this stage of development, check out this neat cup which helps make the transition from sippy cup to straw-in-cup even easier. The new Lollacup infant/toddler cup features a flexible weighted straw...Read More
Expat mums in the US or those just enamored (or enamoured?) of European baby products will be delighted to know that Tommee Tippee, Britain’s #1 megabrand of sippies and bottles is about to flood American malls – or at least those with a Toys R Us in them. It’s nice to have yet another choice of phthalate- and BPA-free bottles and feeding products widely available, especially now that the FDA has gotten their act together and decided that the chemical company-funded studies that “proved” BPA safe miiiight not be all that reliable after all. Products like the Tommee Tippee...Read More
