The Best Baby Cups

| June 13, 2012

When it’s time for weaning, whether from the breast or the bottle, you want the best baby cups to allow your baby to learn how to hold a cup and drink from it themselves.

It’s so wonderful to see how much pleasure your baby gets from having the independence of holding a cup and drinking from it.

This is such an achievement and marks another milestone in your baby’s development.

We tried many cups including the Doidy Cup, the Tommee Tippee Essentials First Cup and the Tommee Tippee Tip It Up Cup.

It’s the Tommee Tippee Tip It Up Cup that our baby took to immediately.

She drinks her water and milk from these cups. We have all 3 colours and mix and match the cup with the handles to create fun new colour combinations each day.

The Tommee Tippee Tip It Up Cup has a soft silicone spout for drinking from that’s spill proof.

It’s BPA free and suitable from 4 months.

Baby Flash Cards

| May 27, 2012

I looked for several weeks for the right Baby Flash Cardsfor my baby. I wanted cards that would be fun, interactive and engaging.

Orchard Toys Baby Flash Cardsare the best Baby Flash Cards I have seen.

The Orchard Toys Baby Flash Cardshave engaging and fun illustrations and my baby loves to play with them by herself and with other people.

These have really made a difference and have encouraged her to recognise familiar objects like Dog, Cat, Fish, Hand, Bee, Socks, Car, Sun, Flower and Bear.

Features of Orchard Toys Baby Flash Cards:

  • 50 cards with Words and Pictures
  • Each large card is double-sided with the Word and Picture on one side and the Word on the back of the card, so when you hold up the Baby Flash Card you know what your baby is looking at
  • Develops early number and reading skills
  • Bright and cheerful illustrations
  • Made of durable, recycled board with a wipe-clean finish

The suggested age for the Orchard Toys Baby Flash Cardsis 3 and over. My baby has been using these since she turned 12 months and now she is 14 months she can recognise many of the pictures and attempts to say what it is. Ever so cute!

I highly recommend Orchard Toys Baby Flash Cardsand at around £6.50 they are worth every penny.
