EvoCups Review: Environmentally Sustainable, Plastic Free Baby Cups

When we first started weaning our daughter we didn’t give too much thought as to what cup we would be using. Over the past year or so we’ve used them all. Sippy cups, Doidy cups, ones with straws and a few 360 degree trainer cups. What we never gave thought to over that time was the environmental impact that these cups might have.

We’ve Now Entered the Tantrum Stage of Our Parenting Journey

Well, all of a sudden we’ve hit the tantrum stage of the parenting journey. I’m well aware that this is a stage that is going to last for some time, but this is just the beginning. Here’s Isabelle right in the middle of a meltdown: I’ve Realised That a Tantrum Can Be Really Silly Tantrums were one of those things that prior to having a baby I assumed had a reason behind them. You take a toy off the child, they throw a tantrum. You say no to ice cream, they throw a tantrum. I guess I assumed there would…
