From Cuddles to Crawlers: Top Picks for Little Ones - Salty and Stylish (2024)

As a seasoned Mimi, I’ve seen it all—from the tiniest cuddles to the fastest crawlers. Let’s dive into my top picks for keeping those little bundles of joy entertained and happy. The water table! Oh, the joy it brings to those curious minds and tiny hands. Splashing around, they’ll be occupied for hours, and it’s the perfect way to beat the heat on those sunny days. Pair it with a stroller ride around the neighborhood, and you’ve got a fun-filled afternoon adventure. Make sure you pack some tropical fruit snacks for the journey—healthy, delicious, and perfect for little fingers! And, of course, we can’t forget the joy of dressing them up in adorable vintage clothing. There’s something so special about seeing them in outfits that might remind you of your own kids’ childhood.

Now, let’s talk about those moments when parents or grandparents need a little break. A baby swing is a lifesaver! The gentle rocking soothes even the fussiest of babies, giving you a chance to catch your breath. Spread out a playmat for tummy time, and watch them giggle and explore. So, whether you’re cuddling, crawling, or just having a blast, these picks and so many more are sure to make your time with your little one even more magical!

As I’m sure you’ve seen, Toddler cups come in all shapes, sizes, and designs, each with its own merits. But when it comes to choosing the perfect cup for your little one’s development, straw cups emerge as the clear champions. Unlike sippy cups, which mimic bottle feeding and keep the tongue at the front of the mouth, straw cups encourage the vital skill of pulling the tongue to the back of the mouth for proper drinking.

Sipping with Style: The Straw Cup Advantage

Straw cups offer a host of benefits that make them the top choice for both pediatricians and speech and language pathologists. Not only do straw cups promote proper tongue and mouth placement, but they also help develop hand-eye coordination as children learn to hold, lift, and tip their cups while sitting upright. While sippy cups may provide a transition from bottles, straw cups offer a more natural drinking experience, setting the stage for independent self-feeding.

Grosmimi: The Straw Cup Royalty

Enter Grosmimi – the reigning champion of straw cups! With their masterful craftsmanship and unwavering dedication to excellence, Grosmimi has become a beloved name in the toddler cup universe. Their straw cups are thoughtfully designed to encourage proper oral skills development and offer a delightful drinking experience for little ones. While other cups may require a reclining position or sucking action, Grosmimi straw cups promote independent drinking in an upright position, helping your baby master the necessary skills. Bid farewell to spills and say hello to sipping success with Grosmimi’s extraordinary straw cups!
