Parenting is hard. Just as you get yourself into a state of calm and understanding, another milestone is hit or your little one decides to alter their routine and you’re back at square one. There is always something new to worry about and new decisions to make. As a parent I like to have something I can rely on, something that I know works, something to make my life easier. My Little Man will be two in 10 days and I am very lucky. More often than not he is a star – his routine works perfectly, he (mostly) does what he’s told, and we don’t really have too many problems. Yes, we still have problems, but as he approaches his 2nd birthday I feel a bit more and more like we know what we’re doing!

Recent research from Munchkin has found that for most new mothers it can take two years to get the hang of motherhood – not that I imagine its ever easy! Mums that spoke to Munchkin all seemed to have a list of criteria they needed to fill before they felt their lives as parents had clicked into place. These criteria included having a good routine, getting baby to sleep through the night, having a good supply of drinks/snacks/entertainment with them when they went out, and being able to go out on time. Parents have a lot to worry about so Munchkin set about to give Mums one less worry with their new “Click Lock” cups.

The “Click Lock” cups have a definite audible ‘click’ sound when the lids are correctly fitted. When the ‘click’ occurs you know that the lid is secure and there’ll be no leaking in your bag or spillages if the cup is knocked over. Munchkin sent Little Man a “Click Lock Straw Cup” to test out and we’ve been using it for most of the summer now. Its a good capacity – Little Man’s fluid intake varies from one to three cups per day! – and easy for him to hold and drink from. Most importantly for me is its ability to not leak, and that has been a great success. As well as the audible ‘click’ when I fasten the lid it just feels secure once its properly in places, and I’ve been able to carry it in my bag without any worries, something which can’t be said for all cups! It is frequently knocked over or dropped onto the floor and we still haven’t had any leakages. A great cup, and one less thing to worry about for us.

The Click Lock Cup range is available from leading supermarkets and stores nationwide.
