Nalgene Review and Giveaway



It is no surprise to anyone that boys are tough little people. Dexter is no exception. He likes to bang his toys, throw his food and spit out his water. All of these things tick me off but I don't get mad. Why? Because I know they are all part of growing up. As a two year old he is always testing boundaries and pushing the limits. That is part of the reason why I have had the HARDEST time ever finding a sippy cup that 1) Doesn't contain BPA 2) Doesn't leak 3) Is durable 4) dishwasher safe and easy with only one valve!

About a month ago Nalgene sent me a variety of bottles to help eliminate the BPA from our household. My husband and I drink out of ours daily and Dexter loves his grip n gulp. After Nalgene sent me one grip n gulp, I rushed on to Amazon and bought 3 more (because the price is awesome)! I have tried sippys by Gerber, Playtex, Safe Sippy, Munchkin and Born Free and they all pale in comparison to this holy grail of sippys. If you have been frustrated, like me, then your search is over! I promise you will never need another sippy EVER AGAIN!

I love Nalgene not only because they make bottles for each member of the family but because all their bottles are BPA FREE! Talk about doing what is responsible rather than what is popular! Way to Go Nalgene. You will have my business for a very long time.

Thanks to my friends at Nalgene, you can win your very own 32 oz. adult bottle and one grip n gulp. Just please head over to Nalgene and tell me about your sippy story. Do you hate them all but found yourself settling? Did you luck out and get it right on the first try? Are you in desperate need of a great sippy? I want to know your story!

I haven't found a sippy bottle version of one that I like! Maybe Nalgene would be it! :)

I've tried three different brands and have been a settler. I think sippys are maybe the toughest kind of cup to get right.

It seems like every sippy we try falls apart! I have never found one that was well made. My 3 year old still uses them (he is a messy boy) and it seems like we are buying new ones every other month.

I am in need of a leak free and BPA free sippy cup. They sippys I have are not all bad just they leak every time when they are in my DD and DS's lunch box. Makes for a soggy lunch at times. I too am in need of a new bottle especially one that is BPA free! Love it!

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

We've tried so many different bottles and sippies. I'm desperate! We had found something that worked back in the day, then found out about BPA and had to start our search over. So I'm really interested in these BPA-free ones. I'm trying to entice my whole family into drinking more water rather than soda, so I'm trying to make it fun with cool bottles and sippies! We'd love the blue Grip 'n Gulp and the Wide Mouth or OtG bottle.
