Every parent experiences the same thing when their child is old enough to hold their own bottle or sippy cup. Yep, you guessed it...a day filled with thrown bottles, sippy cup messes to clean up and time spent searching for the bottle or cup that was dropped 2 blocks back on your walk. A local Illinois mom and science teacher has come up with a solution. She has designed her very own bottle/sippy cup holder!
This holder will fit most sippy cups and bottles. It does claim to fit all bottles and sippy cups, but low and behold, I have one in my cupboard that it does not fit! The band that fits around the cups and bottles is like those stretchy rubber bracelets that used to be all the rage. It is attached to a coil tether that stretches to 3x it's length and on the other end has an attached suction cup. The suction cup will attach to any clean, flat and hard surface. It also comes with a link that can attach to things that do not have trays, such as shopping carts or some light weight strollers. The best part, it is 100% safe and non-toxic. My only thought is that I want to find a holder that when the cup or bottle is dropped, it always lands drinking side up! Am I wanting too much? Anyways, at $7.00 and very quick shipping, I would definitely recommend the sippy cup holders!
