Mums the Word!

So exciting news for the kids!! MumMums just released a new flavor for Toddlers...CARAMEL! So now they offer that and the strawberry flavor still. Baby MumMums still has the same flavor offerings of original, organic, banana, and vegetable. And now they have a great treat for kids 4 - 12...MumMums Snax! They come in Apple Cinnamon and White Cheddar!

For those unfamiliar with these great products, they are Japonica rice biscuits with all natural flavorings for your kids. Best part, they are gluten-free, egg-free, and peanut-free. No additives or anything so it's a wonderful, nutritious treat for all children, regardless of diets and allergies. Check it out for yourself and do your research. Link will be below!

My boys have been eating these bad boys since they were about 4 months old. They don't require excessive chewing so a kid without teeth can just gum away. Also helps soothe the pains of teething. When they got older, we moved onto the toddler version and they are addicted. They make a great treat choice that the boys love. The cookies are individually wrapped, two cookies per ouch, and you buy them by the box. Even with twins, they last a very long time. A box can last us about 2 months, usually longer.

I am a HUGE fan of this product (if that wasn't utterly obvious) and truly recommend you give it a try. Your kids may love it too. We will be testing out the Caramel cookies tomorrow during snack time but I am very optimistic. Let me know what you think!

Also, the boys just FINALLY graduated to straw cups. Demetri has it down pact but Dante is still unsure. We purchased some new cups after reading countless reviews. For Dante so that he could train and get used to the new idea, we bought the Playtex BPA Free Lil' Gripper Straw Trainer (See here!). The cup is squeezable so that you can help them along with realizing the concept. But it isn't so easy to squeeze that you will discover a child covered in juice. I actually had a hard time at first figuring it out but I got it after reading the package a little bit more carefully. It has a spout cover that is easy for the child to control and handles for easier holding. And best part... no leaks! Even if the spout cover is open, the cup itself has an anti-leak spout that works well. Playtex never lets me down!

We also purchased the Playtex Insulator Straw Cup in a two-pack (See here!). The designs are cute and bright which is always a plus in my book. Demetri is using this one and he likes it much more the Munchkins version. The straw isn't so difficult to sip from and the spout cover is much easier for him to use. It also does a great job keeping liquids cold.

Now we may end up checking out other brands of straw cups but these are great for us now. I heard a lot about the Thermos cups but they only had them in pink so I decided to wait on trying them until another time. I kind of wanted the pink one for myself though lol

Well comment below if you want! And feel free to share the blog. Going to wrestle the boys to bed!
