Hey everyone! I’m so excited to share another product spotlight to you all. You may have seen me post a few pictures on Instagram where Nathan is using the Silikids Siliskin Strawtops! With a clumsy toddler who likes to play and create mess with everything he sees, I am sure glad to have Silikids products to save the day!
Siliskin Straw Tops:
I’ve never owned anything like it and it really has been one of the most useful products we own. Finally, Nathan can drink from a cup and a straw without spilling! He tends to over tilt the cup towards him causing it to spill all over himself and the floor. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Silikids during my visit at A Mother’s Haven grand re-opening. I’ve seen the products before on Pinterest and I knew I just had to have it, so I was soooo excited when I bought a set at the store. When we got home, I washed it with warm soapy water and immediately started using it. Now, it’s used every single day! No spills and no mess! Also, it stretches over and grips the top of multiple size cups! I find that it works best on glass cups, though. In addition, I also find it grips the best when both the straw top and the glass are completely dry. In case there any moisture on either the cup or straw top, the straw top tends to slip off. Go figure, it’s silicone!
Finally! A bib that Nathan won’t yank off! It’s so hard to keep a bib on him without him taking it off. Luckily, he likes Silibib because it’s light weight and doesn’t itch his neck. I like it because it is adjustable, and lays flat against his chest at all times. Also, there’s hidden pocket that easily flips forward to use. Which is so great for when he’s eating soups, or to catch his food. This bib is ergonomically designed to lie flat.
Siliskin Glass Training Cup:
I really like this item very much because it’s a glass cup with a silicone sleeve to protect it. However, Nathan still won’t drink from a sippy spout. He hates sippy spouts and prefers to drink straight from the glass or from a straw. This product is great for little ones who are using sippy cups since the spout is soft and spill-proof. Since Nathan won’t drink from the sippy spout, I take it off and the cup is still useful. He’ll drink straight from the cup or I can add on a straw top and it perfectly fits.
Founded in 2006 by Stacey Feeley and Giulana Schwab, “Silikids is the first mom-founded brand focusing on children’s products made entirely out of silicone and glass. Silikids combines needs-based innovation with the technological advances of SILICONE.” Silcone is created when combining oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Silikids products are non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, and does not promote bacteria or fungus growth. Silicone is very durable and recyclable too!
Is it M.O.M. Approved?
YES! Here’s why:
- As mentioned above, all products are durable.
- Easy to clean
- Easy to use
- BPA, PVC, and phthalate free
- Inexpensive and affordable
- Dishwasher safe
- Can be boiled and sterilized
- Silicone sleeve really protects glass cup, however it should only be used on the table under adult supervision at all times.
- Bib is not heavy
Overall, I give Silikids a 5 out of 5 stars! I highly recommend it to all, especially those with small children! I am very eager to buy more products! I foresee our household using Siliskin through generations to come!
