Friday Favorites

Kanteen Wide Insulated Bottles

I got some new Klean Kanteens in the mail today so I have to give a shout out to those today! I got my original three KKs last year from from the lovinbundles coop and just had to snag some of the new wide insulated KKs when the coop ran them earlier this year! I love that Klean Kanteens are BPA free, made of stainless steal (rather than aluminum) and come in so many choices of colors, sizes and cap styles. 

They just launched their insulated version (available only in stainless steel right now) and I bought one in each size– one for everyone in our little family! I got the new cafe caps for two of them and the 12 oz. will be so perfect for soup, lunch boxes, picnics, etc. I also got an extra 12 oz. with the sippy conversion for my daughter and extra sippy spouts. I have already hand washed them so we can take them on our trip to the airport tomorrow to pick up my brother who will be visiting us. 

The only downside for the sippys are that they do not have handles for younger kiddos and are cold to the touch, so you will want a little cozy on them if your little one is sensitive to that sort of thing. Although they are more expensive than BPA-free plastic cups for sippys, these will out last dozens of those with their durability so they are a great investment. Your kids can also grow with them, unlike the cartoon characters or sippy spouts, since you can unscrew the sippy converter and it’s magically a “big kid” cup .

Whether you try and get a slight discount by ordering through a coop (I’d say I saved a good 15% after shipping costs and Paypal fees), buy them online or at your favorite retailer, I highly recommend having some of these in your homes.

    Thanks for the update! We just love our Klean Kanteens. We got them when we first heard about BPA and all the other companies were scrambling to change their products. My son loves their sippy cups and my DH & I have several of the water bottle. I will be sure to pick up a few of these, too!
