Well, just a day or two later I got an email saying that I was selected to try a new product - the Bottle Snuggler!
Bottle Snugglers are a third hand when baby is taking a bottle and one of life’s other little emergencies needs your attention. They are adorable stuffed animals that hold baby's bottle temporarily, giving Mom one free hand to take on the world. Now, you can continue to hold and cuddle baby without interrupting feeding time and still handle whatever life throws your way, if only for a few minutes. You hold baby, Bottle Snugglers hold the bottle, and everyone is happy! These are especially great for Moms of multiples or Moms of a baby and older kids. They are machine washable and very durable. Who wouldn't want a problem-solver and stress-reliever as a Mother's Day gift?I received this cute little puppy and he and Erik have become fast friends! He adds stability to the bottle so that Erik can hold it more steadily and when he's not helping to hold the bottle, the puppy makes great crinkly sounds and you can even squeak a paw!
I have found that it's perfect for when Erik is chilling in the stroller while we are shopping or when he wants to hold his own bottle in the high chair when he is finished eating his cereal or veggies! It's also great when I am holding Erik and Liam wants something at the same time! I really like that the rings that go on the bottle come off with velcro, so I can start out feeding Erik and if I need to free up a hand, I can reach for the Bottle Snuggler and easily attach the bottle to it so that Erik can hold his bottle!
I really love that our Bottle Snuggler is machine washable too- Erik can dribble milk onto it and I can toss it in the washer and it will come out as good as new!
I know that at least three of my friends who have seen me out and about with the Bottle Snuggler are fans already too - so if you have a little one who isn't holding his or her own bottle yet ... or multiples (this would be great for multiples!) you need to check out www.bottlesnugglers.com and find a friend for your little one(s).
