Imagine life before Motherhood. Your pregnant and trying to capture the essence of every moment. Every kick. Every hiccup. The sleepless nights (all in preparation of baby). The frequent potty breaks. The finer moments and the less glorious moments… while still looking at the big picture. I remember those days so vividly. Oddly enough, it was over 3 years ago!
During pregnancy, I always tried to look that the big picture. I was huge on big organized, knowledgeable and prepared. I spent a lot of time scoping out parenting magazines, researching products and daydreaming up the design of the most-perfect nursery. I couldn’t just settle for anything, I wouldn’t. I owed it to myself and my soon-to-be newest addition.
One company that always stood out to me during pregnancy and still does today as a Mom with young children is Munchkin Canada. So I guess it’d be only fitting to announce that I’m officially a Munchkin Canada Brand Ambassador and I couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity!!! Working with a brand I love and sharing all my knowledge with the people I love (my readers and family).
Munchkin Canada is known for designing safe, innovative products that grow with baby and contribute to making parenting more fun! The age range for most of the Munchkin Baby brand of products ranges between 0 to 3 years. I love products that can serve a multi-purpose and grow with my children! It’s the little things!®
Imagine my surprise when I found three boxes containing these goodies on my doorstep last week.
I was completely taken back and in awe. I knew I wanted to dig in, but where did I start.
Cue… my 17 month old’s sobs….
That’s when I got that reminder. My youngest is teething. Badly. Why not skim through and see if there were any teethers in amongst the goodies. Sure enough there was… Orajel® Teethers. Not just one, but four. The Orajel Teethers are designed in 4 stages (front, back, middle and massaging). As they grow with your baby each teether targets a different area ensuring the necessary comfort is provided to your little munchkin.
(Teethers and Mesh Fresh Food Feeder can be seen in picture above.)
You know what Munchkin product is also great for calming teething infants? The Fresh Food Feeder. Pop a couple pieces of frozen fruit into the mesh bag holder of the feeder, snap shut and let your little one chomp away. The Fresh Food Feeder is very easy to use and features an easy to grasp handle for your little one. Whether your using it for teething or as way to introduce solids to your infant… the Fresh Food Feeder is a definite must have!
You must be noticing a trend as you read through my post. Munchkin is a brand that grows with your baby! A brand that grows with my baby and suits their various needs as they develop and hit different milestones deserves an A+ in my books. Munchkin carries an array of different products:
- Cleaning (bottle brushes, soap dispensing bottle brush and dishwasher basket)
- Feeding (forks, spoons, plates, bowls, silly sandwich cutters and snack catchers)
- Bath (bath crayons, bubble blower, bath letters & numbers, grippy dots, safety duck)
- Care (Orajel ® teethers)
- Travel (white hot safety sunblock shade)
- Cups (Click Lock ™ Training & Sippy Cups)
Raising my son has proven to be a lot more difficult than it was with my daughter. Their personalities are both so different. My daughter was very open to trying new things where as my son… not so much. I’ve joked around a lot lately that if Cameron had the choice to be the baby forever, he would be. One of our major difficulties with him has been getting him to wean from the bottle and make the transition to sippy cup. I’ve spent a fortune on sippy cups. Literally. Nothing worked until I wound up with the Click Lock Sippy and Trainer Cups in my hands. Total saving grace, let me tell you.
The Click Lock®™ Cups are brilliant. They’re one of munchkins newest additions to their product line. The Click Lock™ Cup is designed to CLICK right in with your family. They feature a leak proof design. Once you pour the beverage into the cup, simply affix the lid and twist shut. You’ll know the lid is secured as soon as you hear, feel and see the click. The cups are BPA free, seal and leak proof guaranteed. If the cup is not mess-free, simply contact Munchkin and they’ll replace it. Trust me when I say, you won’t have to! I’ve been using them for several weeks now and have had no problems whatsoever.
Like the other Munchkin products, the Click Lock™ Cups are designed to grow with your child. They are sold in stages and styles ranging from:
- Sippy Cup
- Trainer Cup
- Big Kid Cup
- Flip Straw
- Big Kid Spoutless
The cups are available in a variety of vibrant colours and fun designs. They’re easy to grip, use and handle. As well, they are just as easy to clean. For the straw versions of the cups, you could simply remove the straw bits and pop them in your large Munchkin Dishwasher Basket for easy, safe cleaning.
My son took to the Click Lock™ Sippy Cup almost immediately.
His whole thing was that he wanted to feel like he was drinking out of a big boy cup. He loved being able to pick up the cup, tilt his head back and take a swig without all the mess and dribbles of liquid running down his face. The spout is soft, tinted and durable.
If you’re looking for the right sippy cup to transition your munchkin to I suggest giving the Click Lock™ Cups a try!
I could go on and on raving about my favorite Munchkin products, but you’d be reading along forever!!! Before I leave you with a giveaway… I have one last product I want to share with you.
