Now that I have experience in the kitchen with my little ones and have gone through trial and error with the essentials, I have finally found the best items at an even better price!
You cannot beat these plates that I found at Target here for only 79 cents apiece. They are dishwasher and microwave safe. I was raised hand washing most dishes and have done the same in my adult life but since we have had kids most items go in the dishwasher to save time…I’d rather be playing hide and seek!
Ohhh – sippy cups! I have a love/hate relationship with them or at least I use to until I found these. I can’t even tell you how many different cups we tried to find ones that for 1- Don’t leak and 2-You can wash in the small spaces. Several of the options out there leak (even though they are marketed “spill proof”) and most of them are hard to fully wash. These have been amazing and are a heck of a deal. Did I mention they are also dishwasher safe?!? SCORE! You can find the Gerber sippy cup here. Trust me, you will LOVE them.
Plastic reusable bibs have been a lifesaver. With my first born, we would go through at least three cloth bibs a day and several were getting stained. I figured there had to be a better option and here it is. I have one for each kiddo at home and one in the diaper bag. All you have to do is rinse them or you as a wipe and wallah they are ready to go for the next meal time.
I hope you find these essentials to be helpful in the kitchen with your littles.
