Zoli BOT to the Rescue



Last week I took a break from writing when Henry came down with a bad cold. Then Daddy and I were under the weather too. With the coughing, fever and runny noses, no one at our house was getting any sleep. We were all feeling pretty crummy but I think we are over the worst of it now.

Having a sick baby is awful. Henry does not understand why he feels so miserable and there is no way to explain it to him. One of the best things for getting better is to drink lots of fluids, but Henry’s bottle intake dropped noticeably. The amount of water he was drinking from a straw cup was not making up for the difference, so I decided to try a different approach.
The Zoli BOT cup helped encourage Henry to drink more liquid.
I brought out the ZoLi BOT cup that had been too challenging for Henry a few months ago. He was so excited about using the new cup that he drank a few extra ounces of liquid from it -- that made Mommy and baby both happy. 

With the side handles, Henry was able to hold the cup by himself. The no-spill filter also comes in handy now that he is proficient at using a straw but enjoys swinging the cup around when he isn’t drinking.
Henry now loves using the Zoli BOT cup for meals.
We’ve been using this for a few days now and Henry is still quite enthusiastic about it. Daddy says we need to order a few more of these cups.
