I love reviewing baby products! There are a lot of products on the market, so it’s fun to test different ones to see what works and what doesn’t. I was recently sent a baby bottle from Twistshake to review for the blog. Thank you Twistshake!! While I did receive this product for free, all opinions are my own (as always!).

Gracie was breastfed up until 1. She used a bottle probably only 5-6 times when I wasn’t able to breastfeed her. Once she was weaned, she used a sippy cup. So, I’m not TOO familiar with the bottle world. But I do know that there are TONS of baby bottles. Even still, the Twistshake completely stands out.

What makes it so special?

The Pieces! We have the Twistshake ALL-IN-ONE. It comes with the container cap, the cap, the silicone teat, the mixer, the container, and the bottle. I LOVE that it comes with all of this! This bottle is designed to hold formula inside the container, and then mix it right in the bottle! It’s actually amazing, and SO simple. Since Gracie is not on formula, I use the container to store snacks and treats for her! It’s perfect for traveling and even just to store an on-the-go snack!

Anti-Colic Teat – The Twistshake teat is designed to mimic a mother’s breast. It makes transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding super easy! It also contains an anti-colic vault that reduces colic and creates an even flow. There are different sizes you can get to make sure your child is getting the perfect flow for their age. And of course, the teat is made from BPA-free silicone!

The Colors!- Have you ever seen bottles that are bright and fun to look at?! Yeah, me neither. Until Twistshake! I love the bright, fun colors. Gracie got the pink bottle. She loves pink. But, they have so many other colors: purple, blue, turquoise, white, black, yellow, green, or orange! Seriously, so much fun.

I would highly recommend the Twistshake bottle! While we weren’t able to test it with formula, we did test it with regular whole milk. The bottle is awesome, & Gracie loves it. It is so easy to clean. And we love the little container for snacks! Also, you can actually use the mixer on the bottle to use it to make fruit water! The mixer stops the fruit from getting clogged in the bottle. I am SOOOO trying this!

18 Month Old Baby Update!

Happy New Year! It’s also a special day because Gracie turns 18 months old today! Time flies, and Gracie is growing so much. I wanted to share a bit of an update with you :).

Talking

Oh my goodness, Gracie talks A LOT. And I love it. I would give you a list of words she says, but I would run out of space. She says everything now. She can almost form sentences too, but they are short. Like “all done, mommy” or “bye bye bath time”. She loves to say hi and bye to everything. She tells you what she wants whether its milk, or crackers, or peas, or oatmeal, or her blanket. She will let you know LOL. I love hearing her voice. It’s probably my favorite thing about her at this age. I love when I ask her a question and she actually answers me. So funny! I’m going to try to make a video soon of her talking so you can hear all the crazy things she says.

Gracie also sings songs now, too. It’s adorable.

Eating 

Gracie is a great eater. She eats mostly everything you put in front of her. She’s not the biggest fan of meat, but if its ground turkey or chicken, she MIGHT like it. She loves grilled cheese, oatmeal, yogurt, strawberries and watermelon, cherrios, black beans, Jimmy Johns sandwiches LOL, eggs, okay… see she likes everything. When she’s all done eating she says “all done” and then will throw every piece on the floor.

Sleeping 

Gracie has been doing much better with sleeping. She takes one nap a day around 11-1. And then goes to bed around 8:30-9:00pm. She usually wakes up around 8 in the morning. When we were in New York she stayed up until like midnight and then got up around 10:30am. She is so flexible with her schedule. She kinda just goes with the flow. We received an amazing mattress from Washabelle. It’s a washable twin size mattress. It’s on the floor in her room and she LOVESSSSSS it. She calls it her “big girl bed”. And she sleeps awesome on it. She does roll off it sometimes, but we have some floor pillows and rugs all around it so she just either keeps sleeping or will find her way back to her bed. It’s been a lifesaver for us because it was getting hard to sleep with her in our bed. And she hated the crib. So it’s a win-win!

Playing

Gracie got tons of new toys for Christmas. Her favorites right now are her new baby doll with the stroller, her tiny little ponies, this popper walker-thingy, and her new books. She does have an imagination and I watch her as she talks with her toys and makes up games with them. It’s fun to watch! She also loves having her friends come over to play. We love playdates! We also love walking across the street to the big park. And she loves playing with mommy’s swiffer!
