Review: Nuby Insulated No-Spill Soft Sipper

Thanks to Nûby, I was able to review the no-spill soft sipper cup with Baby J!

Delicate on a baby’s gums and teeth, this cup is designed for ages 9 months and up. It’s BPA-free and holds 7 ounces of liquid. It’s even insulated to keep your baby’s drink cool and fresh! The cup features a flip cap to protect the spout and a dual-flo™ Valve that provides fast to slow liquid flow rates.

Our Experiences:

We’ve been using this cup almost every single day over the last week. I take Baby J to the playground or the mall play space every weekday, and I need a cup that will keep his milk or water cool. We also used it for the church nursery this past Sunday. This cup does keep liquid cooler for longer than a traditional cup. For example, I filled the cup with cold water before going to the park. It was at least 90 degrees outside. We spent almost two hours there before coming home, and the water was still cool…not cold, but cool. Also, true to the description, it doesn’t sweat on the outside.

The flip cap over the spout takes barely any effort to push back, so Baby J can easily open it by himself and drink from this cup. Because it’s so easy to move, I was afraid the cap wouldn’t stay over the spout if the cup was dropped, but it does! No leakage! I also tried shaking the cup vigorously, and the cap stayed over the spout. Overall, I’m pleased with this cup and planning on purchasing a couple more. They’re handy for days when we’re away from the fridge, but don’t want to lug around a cooler or insulated bag.

Review: Nuby Bottle Drying Rack

One of my favorite parts about blogging is being a Nûby mom blogger. As a member of their program, they’ve sent me fun, useful products to try out and share my experiences with. My latest review is on the Nûby Bottle Drying Rack.

Nûby’s pre-assembled Bottle Drying Rack holds eight bottles along with nipples, rings, discs, and caps. But the drying rack can be used with more than just bottles. It also works with different shapes and sizes of training cups and pacifiers. The pegs fold out of the rack and then lock into place. When you’re finished drying your bottles, fold the pegs back in. They’ll fold flat which is perfect for storage. The reservoir design holds in excess water, creating less mess for you.

A Nûby bottle and nipple brush is also included with this drying rack set. There’s a loop at the top of the bottle brush, making it easy to hang where you like. The nipple brush is stored inside the ventilated handle of the bottle brush. Just pull it out when you’re ready to use. Both brushes feature durable nylon bristles, but the bottle brush also has a sponge tip to clean those difficult to reach areas. The rack can lie horizontally or sit up vertically.

Our Experiences:

Baby J is finally doing awesome with his sippy cups, so I’ve moved all his bottles into storage. That doesn’t mean the drying rack is going to waste! I use it to dry parts for sippy cups, teething toys, and even small jars and containers I use for homemade baby food. Actually, I’ve even put spoons on there. Yup. If it fits, the drying rack is where it goes.

I use it to dry hand washed items, but I also use it for things I put through the dishwasher. To save money, we sometimes turn the dishwasher’s heated dry cycle off, which means all my dishes are still wet afterwards. Even if I use the heated dry, many of the sippy cups or spouts tend to hold a little moisture. I want them dry before they go into the cupboard, so I’ll move the cups to the drying rack for a day. I usually have the drying rack standing vertically, and I’ve never had an issue with it falling over, even when it’s not against the wall.

Here’s a tip: to save even more space, don’t lock the pegs in place and leave the drying rack standing vertically. Just fold the pegs down until you feel resistance, without locking them. That’s usually how I do it.
