IKEA BÖRJA beaker review
When I decided to breastfeed my son, I followed the advice of La Leche league, and purposely didn’t buy any bottles.
The idea is that if you don’t have them, you can’t use them. It worked and we are still feeding at 10 months.
The only negative has been that we’ve really struggled finding a suitable sippy cup or breaker for him.
This issue is that he tries to “latch on” to them getting his nose squished against the lid. Which promptly causes him to quit trying.
We’ve tried all different makes, collecting a cupboard of redundant offerings in the process.
Someone I know rated Nuby, another TT and a further friend suggested another brand.
We even tried buying a bottle, but still no joy. Honestly, I’d kind of given up on the training cup thing, resigning myself to be my toddlers cup slave (your glass mama with lots of ice) for the rest of eternity.
But, today on a trip to Ikea for pub supplies, I was browsing the baby section, and a frog themed set caught my eye. Next to it was the borja breaker, which I passed to groggy to inspect on an off chance.
It has a really tall spout, so when he tried to latch on there was still plenty of space for his nose.
At £1.50 each I thought it was worth a shot. On the way home I filled it up to provide a car seat distraction, and he finished it minutes.
Such perfect timing too with this hot weather he really needs the extra water.
Other pluses, apart from the fact that he can use it , include:
Design is nice- green and white 70’s style color way.
Clear measuring points on the front of the beaker
The beaker is BPA free
And it’s handles are good size for toddlers
