Finally, a Sippy I Can Live With!

I have a lot of peaceful time on my hands today, lol! My little ones always seem to be jealous of the big kids so all is quiet. Lots of blogging time with Paigey back in school. Miss Jenna likes having Mommy to herself, Paige was exactly this way when she was two, randomly kicking her brother during summer break, kids!

Here are the best sippy cups! If you had kids or grandbabies in the mid 90’s most likely you had Playtex Spill Proof cups, these are very similar.

I purchased Jenna’s at Dollar General(the Dollar Store as we call it)for $3, they have Spongebob and Dora designs, other stores may have a wider variety. We love them! Set the valve to, “slow,” for virtually no spillage!

Unexpected Toddler Treat

My family and I are WIC Clients, it’s a wonderful supplemental food program. Although there have been cutbacks through the years they still provide super useful elements to make sure every pregnant woman and child under 5 has adequate nutrition. From breastfeeding support to nutritious foods, it’s a helpful resource to many families.

For those of you that have been WIC Participants you know you get a surplus of infant cereals. Keep them in a cool, dry place and they will come in handy even when your infant becomes a toddler. I’ve discovered if I put a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon in with the cereal Jenna gobbles it up, plus I can control the consistency and make it smooth enough to be palatable but thick enough to stay on her spoon for easy self feeding. This morning I even snuck in some Gerber 3rd Foods sweet potatoes ­čśë

Here is a link to more ways to use infant cereal. I’m a firm believer that it’s one of the most nutritious foods for babies and toddlers.
