Last year I did a review for a stainless steel water bottle and I haven’t parted from it since. I love it… Since then, I have been on the lookout for one for Baby Bird. I mean just because she is an infant, doesn’t mean that she can’t do her part to save the planet right? Well, right in theory any way. It was a lot harder to find a good quality stainless steel bottle for an infant than you might think.
Then I found Kid Basix and their line of stainless steel baby and infant bottles and I was hooked. Kid Basix was started by Bret Plate, a dad who wanted to make a difference in his son’s life and in the environment.
We received the Safe Sippy 2 in pink to review. It is a 2-in-1 sippy or straw cup. It is pictured here in blue because I have other pictures of it below that show you the beautiful pink colour so I wanted to show off this colour too. The bottle comes with a straw and attachment and a separate attachment to turn it in to a sippy cup. It also comes with a travel plug and cap to prevent any spills and to keep the spout clean while on the go.
Because cold liquids in stainless steel cups can stay pretty cold, it has a insulated easy-grip to keep little hands warm as well as handles that are removable for easy cleaning. The cup is also dishwasher safe and completely BPA and phthalate free.
I am a huge fan of the Safe Sippy 2 because it can grow with my daughter from sippy cup to straw cup. It’s also made of a great quality, non-leaching stainless steel so not only are we helping the environment; Baby Bird is safe too.
This cup comes with us everywhere. Baby Bird is in love with it too. When I first showed it to her, she sat quietly in her crib and played with it for 45 minutes straight. The easy-grip insulated sleeve and the removable handle is so easy for her to hold and it never slips out of her hands. We went out for a walk on the weekend and she insisted on carrying it the whole way. I have proof!
Baby Bird loves holding it both by the handle and by the sleeve and whether she is holding the bottle with mitts or without, she didn’t drop it once. And believe me, we bent over to look at every puddle of water on our walk.
Normally she would give up her bottles within the first five minutes of a walk because they were slippery and concentrating on not dropping it was just too much for my little girl on the move. With the Safe Sippy 2 though, she held it right up until it was time to use her two hands for making snowballs, then when we were done, she wanted the bottle back.
Kid Basix also sells stainless steel baby bottles and sports bottles. The Safe Sippy 2 sells for $14.95 through their online store.

PS – I know three pictures wasn’t necessary to show off the bottle, but good God isn’t she the cutest kid ever?
