I’m a little too jazzed about these cups that are brand new and on their way from Puj, the popular baby sink tub company.
We got a Puj tub with our 3rd baby because I used to hate bending over the tub edge to wash the baby. It was nothing short of uncomfortable. The Puj tub was the perfect solution and I loved every minute of using it (confession: I still put chubby 9 month old Graham in there from time to time even though our sink size is a bit small for him). With the Puj, I could wash Graham in the sink, clean up the tub in seconds and not have to worry about drowning or having to hold onto a slippery baby. Shoot, I didn’t even have to clean my sink before sticking him in there (woohoo!).
I saw a few months ago on Instagram that Katie & Ben, the married couple behind Puj, had come up with a new genius idea for cups: Phillup cups that hang on hooks that attach to the fridge (or other surface). And a lightbulb went on… these cups would eliminate my age old problem of missing cups and constant hounding over being thirsty. I’m clearly not the only one who thinks this is genius, because this project was successfully funded on Kickstarter and is now in production.
Here’s why I love the idea… We use one cup per child a day. I don’t think it’s gross; it’s a necessity. Generally my kids have a drink with every meal (3), then one with every snack (2), and then the occasional in-between (1). That’s roughly 5 cups a day; multiply that by 2 kids and we’re up to 10 cups. I don’t even have that many cups in my cupboard.
So to eliminate MORE dishes, we use one cup a day. The problem with this is that my kids are constantly leaving their cups everywhere – in the basement, under the couch, in their room, in the backyard. And when they want a drink and don’t know where their cup is, mommy refuses to go find it and thus WWIII commences (i.e. “but i’m thirsssttyyyyyyyy!!!!”).
Enter the Puj Phillup. It’s a BPA/PVC free cup that is dishwasher safe and comes with a flexible hang loop and hook that adheres to glass, metal, tile & fiber glass. Each kid gets a cup in a different color and after using it, returns it to their hook. Now instead of my daughter asking me for a drink every 5 seconds, she can grab her cup and fill it up at the fridge on her own, leaving mommy in peace. Praise Jesus.
If you’re ready to hop on the bandwagon, you can currently pre-order at a discounted price (before Sunday, March 29th, I believe). And if you head to their website, you might get a pop-up for $5 off your first order when you enter your email (I did)! I suggest buying a 4-pack if you think you’ll use these often; you get a discount for buying multiple.
note: This post is NOT sponsored by Puj, I am just in love with their products and wanted to share. I am, however, using a referral link, which means I may receive a portion of any orders placed.
