iPlay Baby Green Sprouts Review and Giveaway

I would have never thought I would need so many sippy cups and bottles when I was pregnant. As a first time mom I did know that I needed to be aware of chemicals like BPA being in plastic cups and bottles. I made sure to read labels of items I purchased and received as gifts. Companies like Green Sprouts make shopping for baby safe items easier for busy Moms. iPlay is the company that made Green Sprouts, they are a line of natural products including feeding, toys, and baby care items.

I have been looking for new cups for my son. He is big enough now to have cups with a straw in it. He seems to love straws and a straw cup is a great way to get him to drink a fruit and veggie smoothie. He thinks its fun! I wanted to find a good straw cup that would close tightly. I have had another brand of straw sippy leak into my diaper bag before. Thankfully when we tried the Aqua Bottle the lid closes tightly. My son loved his new cup. I love it since it is BPA free, can hold 10oz and is interchangeable with other Aqua Cups. He is used to tilting up his cup to drink it so he did take a bit to get use to holding it downward to get the straw to work. One note for using it is to make sure the straw part on the inside is firmly in place before you tighten the lid on or it can leak a bit when tilted. There is a cute Elephant on the cup that my son likes. He just learned about the sounds Elephants make and he does his best Elephant trunk noise each time I hand him his cup, its so cute!

I must admit I still let my son drink his milk out of a bottle. I know some Moms dont after a certain age but he is 2 and its the one way I can get him to drink his milk. As a toddler myself I drank my bottle until well after 3 and I turned out fine lol. I was previously using a glass bottle for my son to avoid all contact with plastics when he drinks his milk since I warm it up before bed. Lately though he does not want warm milk but only cold milk so I have been looking for a plastic bottle, plus he has been in a "lets throw everything" mode and a glass bottle must not be thrown! I needed a bottle that is free of BPA and PVC and easy for my son to hold. We tried the Green Sprouts Feeding Bottle. The Feeding Bottle was everything I needed plus with a wide opening it was so much easier to clean than my glass bottle. My son did launch it across the room too and it was fine! He picked it back up and continued to drink out of it. I just tell myself he is a future athlete and that he is practicing.
