About a month ago I wrote a post about LilyBugs. I also sent an email to Heather, the owner of the Mom4Life website where I first found LilyBugs to tell her how much we love our LilyBug and about the blog post I had written. Heather, the owner of mom4life, emailed me back and was so nice. She asked if she could forward the post link to Crystal, the mom who created LilyBugs, to let her know about how great the LilyBugs have worked for us with helping Whitney hold her own straw up. Crystal (the creator and owner of the LilyBugs company) sent me the nicest email after reading our post and offered to send Whitney a new LilyBug + send an extra LilyBug to "giveaway" through our blog :) YEAH!!! I am so excited to do our very first "GIVEAWAY"!!!
Here are a few details that came in the packaging with our new LilyBug:
"LilyBugs are a wonderful addition to the ordinary, hard plastic bottle or sippy cup. Babies and toddlers instinctively grasp and rub the soft, cuddly handles while feeding. The animated faces, vibrant colors and multiple textures provide visual and sensory stimulation for growing hands and minds." ***just a sidenote: Anne, who is 3 1/2 and considers herself a very "big girl", also loves LilyBugs... now that we have two LilyBugs she is always asking us to put one of the LilyBugs on her cup, too! So... they are for babies, toddlers and "big girls & boys" :)
-Fits both bottles & sippy cups (*straw cups too!*just wanted to add that, since according to all of the research from the experts when it comes to Speech Language Pathology, straw cups are much better than sippy cups when it comes to forming the muscles and movements of the mouth for speech) - Machine Washable - Great for Glass Bottles - Absorbs Condensation & Leaks - Creats a Smooth Transition from Bottle to Sippy Cup - Provides Visual & Sensory Stimulation - For Both Boys & Girls - Helps to Introduce Bottles or Sippy Cups while Nursing - Separates Drinks Among Multiple Children - Decorative for Fashionable Moms, Dads & Kids - Keeps Little Hands Warm During the Cold Seasons
