    Sorry im posting loads!

    what are peoples views on sports bottles?? Ive actually found Kayson (11months) today he'll drink juice from it yay!! :happydance: BUT is it a good thing? or not as the only other thing he'll drink juice/water from is a proper cup...which is a pain if we are out xx

    They are great for when out and about. I reuse the fruit shoot bottles (Tobi's cousin drinks the original juice) and tobi can open and close it, so is good.
    Just be very careful to keep it clean as the spout can be a breeding ground for bugs!
    Not sure where we stand with the whole sucking thing though, like with bottles!!

    I used to re-use fruit shoot bottles too but I just bought 2 sports bottles in a set in poundland. Perfect for taking drinks out and about as Earl is a really thirsty boy and will happily finish a full 300ml fruit shoot bottle of water in one go! The bottles I bought are 430ml lol.

    I've never heard of it being a problem. We use sippy style cups at home, and let him drink from open top cups now and again (and in the bath lol) to get the handg of it. I don't think most children are ready for a proper open cup all of the time before the age of about 2 as they can be a bit rough and it's a bit messy lol. Sports bottles are a very handy alternative for the changing bag :thumbup:
