Teaching kids how to eat is not something I thought would be difficult before becoming a mama.
I didn’t think anything of it, actually.
I guess I just assumed they would know how to do it?
It’s funny how when you aren’t a mom, you don’t really realize all that goes into it. You literally have to teach them everything. And often times it can be frustrating! Especially when the products you’re buying aren’t helping.
With the twins nearing their first birthday, we are starting to wean them away from bottles. And to be honest- finding what works for them hasn’t been super easy!
But after trying a few different products with the twins, I have found a few that I really love for the transition between baby and toddler.
So of course I have to share them with you guys!
PLUS make sure to follow along because at the end of this post I am sharing my brand new giveaway going on NOW through August 13th 11:59 pm PST.
I was gifted these products from Nuby for review, however, all opinions are my own.
We first started out with sippys from Dr. Browns because we already loved the brand for bottles. While in the NICU, the twins doctors suggested Dr. Browns so we stuck with them once we left the hospital. They did us well! So we figured the twins would love their sippys just as much.
But as it turns out, the twins didn’t do well with them. I almost think their sippys that we tried were a little too advanced for babies weaning away from the bottle. So now I am keeping the them for later on down the road once they are solid drinkers.
After trying the Dr. Browns sippys for a few weeks, we decided to skip on to Nuby, which is another brand we love.
And that is where we found our winners!
Nuby has all sorts of products that help with the transition from baby to toddler, and these three are some of my favorites!
360 Grip n’ Sip (4 months+)
This is perfect for making the switch from bottle to sippy cup without the mess! Kendall and Caeden throw their cups everywhere, and nothing ever spills out. Even when dropping from their chair at the table to the hardwood floor. Nothing! They can also drink from any angle because of an insert that helps flow the water from the bottom of the cup up through the spout. You can also take the insert out and keep the mess free function. I have been using it for water with the insert, and then I take it out to give them a little bit of milk with breakfast and dinner and it still performs great! I think what really helped the twins grab onto the sippy concept so quickly with these was the spout. It is soft and easy for them to suck on, like they would a bottle, to get their milk or water out.
2 Handle 360 Wonder Cup (6 months+)
My second favorite from Nuby is their 360 Wonder cup. I was hesitant on this style cup being that a few of my friends warned me about their kids throwing the cup and the lid breaking off, meaning juice everywhere. But I was surprised with how well the twins adapted to it! The twins both picked up the sucking concept quickly and I like that it will help prepare them to drink out of real cups in the future. The seal is also pretty strong. Kendall likes to hold everything upside down and shake them, but this cup has yet to spill! So far their cup throwing hasn’t broken the seal either, but out of caution I am sticking to water in these cups.
Designer Series Snack Keeper
And of course with sippys comes snacks! I love the adorable snack cups that Nuby has to offer. While they follow suit with the rest of the soft lid toddler snack cups, I love that Nuby puts a fun spin by adding cute designs and a removable base. Even though Kendall quickly figured out how to remove the base- it has turned into a fun game and she chews on it now so I call that a win win!
As a mom, my favorite part about Nuby products is that everything comes apart. I can feed my babies with confidence knowing that I have washed and sanitized every little bit of their sippys, snack cups, and everything else. All of their products are also BPA free!

My kids are grown now. I still remember those transition times.
Those were our favorites too!!
We’re in this transition right now. I forgot how much patience and energy this takes! We have a lot of nuby products for solids but all our bottles and cups are avent.
How are you guys adjusting with the Advent brand?
