b.box Sippy Cup

b.box Sippy Cup

Why We Love Them

The b.box sippy cup is designed for easy use at home or on the go. Kids can drink at any angle thanks to the innovative weighted straw. The top flips over to prevent spills when stowed in the diaper bag, and the easy-grip handles encourage independence. This sippy cup helps kids transition from using a bottle to drinking milk from a cup.

This is a great cup for kids who want to start doing things for themselves. It’s designed to be simple for a child to use and hold, and the flip top makes it hard to spill! The handles are positioned to be easy to grab and the weight at the end of the straw stays in the liquid when tilted. We love this cup for taking water and milk on the go or staying hydrated at home.

Liliputi Buckle Carrier

Liliputi Buckle Carrier

Why We Love Them

The Liliputi Buckle Carrier is an adjustable carrier that grows with your child, supporting them as long as you want to babywear, from infancy all the way through the toddler years. Usable for both front and back carry, the buckle carrier offers M-position seat support that’s ergonomic and customizable to your child’s length and size. The buckle carrier is designed to minimize the strain on the wearer’s spine, waist and shoulders. It’s made from baby-friendly organic cotton that comes in a wide range of patterns; easy to use, comfortable, and also very beautiful.

We’ve loved using this carrier. It perfectly cradles a baby so comfortably that they easily fall asleep. It also easily supports a toddler thanks to the flexible, adjustable design. Our favorite feature is the inner built-in pocket seat that holds an infant’s body up higher in the carrier so their head is at kissable level on the wearer. A toddler can sit in the carrier without using the insert, so they settle down lower; allowing the same carrier to hold both tiny and large children. We also love that you can wear the straps parallel to each other or crossed over in the back. Crossing the straps provides a very comfortable fit when wearing a tiny infant, whereas the parallel strap position over the shoulders better accommodates larger children. The fabric is beautiful and the details are high quality and well made, making it possible to use this for years and pass it on to other wearers. It is also easy to put on and take off by yourself, even while holding your child. All the straps adjust to fit a wide range of body types.

Milkies Milk Trays help moms pump and store breast milk in a way that’s effective and long lasting. Specifically designed for expressed milk, Milk Trays are made from a food-safe PET plastic that doesn’t contain BPA, phthalates, or dyes. Milk Trays freeze breast milk in 1-ounce “Milk Sticks” that fit through all bottle openings and allow you to thaw just the right amount of milk for each feeding.

We love that Milk Trays make storing breast milk easier. Freezing your milk in the convenient Milk Stick form offers easy convenience for later use. You don’t have to thaw your milk before placing a Milk Stick the bottle and you can measure in small increments and only warm up as much as your baby needs.
