Don’t stop reading but were talking about a straw here. This item has many uses.
I drink most beverages from a straw. They allow for a more pleasurable drinking experience for many reasons. Straw drinking allows one to consume liquids swiftly without chugging, preserves make-up, never leads to spills and prevents frigid ice from crashing into one’s face. I could go on and on about the benefits, but if you are a straw drinker yourself, you need no further clarification. My house is fully stocked with straws of all sorts, yet, most straws have a few downfalls. Some straw issues I come across regularly: a straw must be perfectly sized for your glass — if too short you’ll have to go fishing every time you need a sip, if too long and using a water bottle with a screw-on-top, you won’t be able to close your drink; if your straw is too skinny, it may take too much energy to get even a small sip; and if the straw is rigid, depending on how you are sitting, you or your child may be unable to reach the straw. The Bubba Big Straws solves all these problems and more, it’s bendable, stuff-able and playable!
Straws, Babies, and Toddlers
Straws have always been an important tool in my life, but they have never been more vital until I had children. They’re a parenting lifesaver! Have you ever forgotten a bottle or baby/toddler cup? I have. At the 6 month mark, many babies are capable of drinking from a straw, leaving forgetful moments a breeze to handle, but all straws aren’t created equal (yes, many babies will take milk or formula from a straw if encouraged early on). The Bubba Big Straws might be designed for your Bubba Mugs, but the truth is they are able to fulfill all of your straw demands. The straws work well for any glass… 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 ounces, it doesn’t matter. If you add these to your arsenal of parenting tricks, you’ll be forever grateful to “Bubba.” Bubba straws are also dishwasher safe, BPA free and made of 100% food-grade silicone! Sooooo… keep a few straws in your glove box and purse and skip that silly water bottle baby nipple and get a Bubba Straw!
A Bubba Big Straw will also become your baby’s favorite play thing. At 5 or 6 months old, that straw you have stuffed in your purse will also double as a toy. I love a multi-tasking item! I don’t believe there was ever a toy that all three of my children liked better.
The Bubba Big Straw is also the best teething toy on the market!
If we’re getting ahead of ourselves here and your baby hasn’t learned to drink from a straw, you’ll probably want to teach him so you can use all these cool tricks. Although it’s not imperative that you teach your baby or toddler to drink from a sippy cup, you’ll probably want them to at some point too. Read Straw Drinking in 5 Easy Steps!
