The First Years

Yesterday it was six months ago that our sweet Harriet was born, six whole months of loving on our beautiful girl. Even though we’ve been through this baby stage four times before, I still enjoy every little bit of it. I just love the cuddles and the kisses and all those special ‘firsts’.

Babies grow so quickly and their needs change all the time, luckily when it comes to eating and drinking The First Years has got all stages covered.

Wean On Me cupAs Harriet is exclusively breastfed she has not had any experience with drinking from bottles, she doesn’t even take a dummy! However with three little teeth coming through she enjoys biting, chewing and drinking around the clock so we felt a small, spill proof sippy cup with some water might be a welcome distraction. She immediately grabbed on to the handles of the 207ml ‘Wean On Me’ Trainer Cup (RRP $5, 4 months+) and went for it, instant success.

Simply SoftAs your baby gets bigger and becomes more confident with drinking from a cup you can move onto the ‘Simply Soft’ Soft Spout Cup (RRP $5, 6 months+). Like its smaller sibling this 266ml cup has a nice, soft spout that is gentle on sensitive gums and tiny toothy pegs but has a taller, slimmer fit so children can learn to hold the cup properly by using two hands. All The First Years toddler cups are completely free from BPA, after all we don’t want any nasty chemicals near our precious bundles.

Simple SippyFrom 9 months onwards babies can start trying a more rigid spout like the ‘Simple Sippy’ Cups (RRP $8, 2-pack). These colourful cups and lids are stackable for more efficient storage. Not only does The First Years know exactly what works for little ones, they make mum’s life easier too with their clever ‘one piece lid’ design: there are no small pieces to lose, clean, take apart or fit together, so easy! All lids from the ‘One Piece Lid’ collection are interchangeable so you don’t even have to find the matching lid to the right cup saving you time and hassle.

Simple StrawLast but not least there are the cool ‘Simple Straw’ Cups (RRP $8, 2-pack), they are suitable for ages 18 months+ but our 3-year old still loves these ‘bottles’ (and I love the ‘no mess’ part!). Thanks to the pleasant price tag of the ‘The First Years’ feeding range (RRP $5-$8) you can afford to have one cup in the kitchen, one in your baby bag, one at grandma’s and one in the dishwasher, without breaking the bank.

The First Years toddler feeding range is available in many different designs to suit boys and girls and can be found exclusively at Target stores across Australia.

  3. As I read about the great variety of cups, that hip little one have available, I’m amazed for cups like this were not around like this, when my children were young. I would have love to have had these cups, for as a mother, it would have made my life easier, no spills etc,
    I know my daughter would love these cups, especially for my beautiful grandson and our new grandchild who is on the way.
