Little big girl – Tommee Tippee giveaway

My 15-month-old Smiley has decided that she is a big girl now.

Forget the highchair, don’t insult her by trying to feed her, and certainly don’t expect her to drink from a bottle.

Smiley has been showing signs of becoming more, how should I say, strong-willed since her first birthday.

She is now a pro at asserting herself and believe me, this girl knows what she wants.

I was a little slow to catch on at first, as us mummies sometimes can be. I couldn’t quite understand why she would go troppo every time I put her in the highchair.

I swear if she could talk she would say, ‘For Christ’s sake Mummy, highchairs are for babies. Sit me at the little yellow table with big sister where I belong!’

As soon as I placed her across from her big sister Curly-locks at the little yellow table for big girls, she looked like the cat that got the cream. She gave me one of her trademark smiles and bopped happily up and down as if to say to herself, ‘I’ve hit the big time now!’

These days she wants to do everything her big sister does.

If Curly-locks plays with a ball, Smiley does too. If Curly-locks sits on the Dora couch, Smiley wants to sit there too. If Curly-locks drinks out of her Dora cup, then Smiley wants to do that too.

Unfortunately, this is just not a possibility at this stage as she does not have the control to prevent her from tipping the whole cup of water over herself.

We’ve tried a series of cups recently and none have floated her boat, or mine for that matter.

Some leak water when you tip them upside down or let the water gush out causing her to choke if she’s guzzling. Others have lids that get in the way or are difficult to get off.

When Tommee Tippee asked me to try their new Discovera cup range, it couldn’t have come at a better time.

They have a great collection of non-spill, shake proof cups in various shapes and sizes to meet your child’s developmental needs.

Smiley has been trialling the experimenting and developing cups, while her sister quickly snaffled up one from the independence range. Both girls love the cups. Smiley finds the one from the experimenting range easy to hold onto with its reasonably sized handles shaped forward for ease of grip, while she also enjoys using the one from the developing range without handles. This one especially appeals to her because she now has a cup without handles like her big sister.

The cups are BPA free, don’t leak, have lids which are easy to put on and off, and they come in gorgeous designs with a space to place your child’s name.

Smiley has also trialed Tommee Tippee’s heat sensor spoons which are a brilliant idea and the stickee bowl which is my particular favourite. There is nothing worse than having your strong-willed toddler swipe her spaghetti bolognese right off the table onto the floor. The stickee bowl is a god-send.

Today, Tommee Tippee is kindly letting me giveaway a pack of Tommee Tippee goodies to one lucky reader.

The pack includes:

One cup from the experimenting range

One cup from the developing range

One cup from the mastering range

A pack of heat sensor spoons

A stickee bowl.

    The product I am LOVING second time around is the fruit feeder thingamajigger. Peel the fruit, stick it in, and bub sucks the goodness through the mesh while the rubbish stays inside. GENIUS. Never had to use it with #1 because she’s always been a neat freak, but #2 loves mess like Cookie Monster loves cookies! Except mess hasn’t become a politically correct sometimes food!

    Our best baby product was a baby carrier. It came in very handy on our family holiday when hubby broke his shoulder and needed surgery just days before we left. It was a cruise and being able to wear our toddler freed my hands up to do things hubs couldn’t help with. She loved it and always fell asleep in it – even through a tropical storm!

    The latest product that has made my life easier is a dummy saver clip. She has realised that she can throw things and it has saved the dummy from ending up on the floor or being lost forever at the shops sooo many times already. Definitely a life saver.

    Oh I so need to win one of these! Failing that, I’m so going to buy one! I’m currently sitting in a puddle on the couch where dino baby has tipped all the water out of her sippy cup just to splash in. It’s her latest game, and while I love encouraging her imagination, I don’t enjoy having a wet butt!
    If I had to name just one mummy must have tho, it would definitely be a baby carrier (or three)…

    Cups with lids are such an awesome thing to have with a child. Mr 4 still uses them for his milk as he likes to lay down and watch tv while he drinks. We used the Tommee Tippee ones when he first started using a sippy cup and they were so great with their awesome colours and easy to grip cups. I’ll have to dig up a picture and tweet it to you!

    for my 18month old I love the bowls that have a suction cup (not that it helps the food go in the mouth) but at least the plate isnt thrown across the room πŸ™‚
    But when he was little, there was the bumbo (loved it!) and a sheeps skin (great to keep them warm during winter) and a soft mat that they could enjoy tummy time on.

    A bouncer has made life easier… it gives some fun to bounce up and down and see the world from a different angle. It also means that he tires himself out, which means that he sleeps better. I think bouncers have been one of the best baby inventions ever!
