Gear Thursday: Safe Starter Bottle by Kid Basix


I found this bottle on a recent trip to a little one's clothing store. I say litttle one because I'm not really sure what to call a store that offers clothes from newborn to 3, or maybe older. I also can't figure out how sizing on kids clothes work. I understand the month thing but no kid I've ever met wears the month that they are.

Then to make myself seems even stupider I don't know what ages you use use various names for kids. I.e baby, infant, or toddler.

But I digress. We were in this store for some age of kids and the clean look of the bottle popped out at me. I just took a glance and moved on when I saw that it's stainless steel.

You see at home we have a wonderful collection of stainless steel and aluminum water bottles and travel mugs. All say they are handwash only and so I rarely use them because I'm not always into getting coffee and tea stains out by hand. I'm sure the world wouldn't end if they went in the dishwasher, but I'm playing it safe.

But when my attention span for looking for clothes for the baby/newborn/toodler/infant waned I wandered back to the Safe Starter and actually started checking it out. It looks pretty cool. Comes in 3 colors and sizes: green, blue and pink and 5oz and 9oz. Has a silicone cover over a stainless steel bottle. A wide nipple and slow flow to help prevent colic. And there is a travel cap.

And to my delight it is dishwasher safe...which makes me wonder why no one can figure out a dishwasher safe travel mug.

So yeah, now you can have a good looking, dishwasher safe bottle that you can feel good about because it's more eco than a plastic bottle.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…

Update post

An unexpected side affect of writing this blog is that I was introduced to the world of baby blogs. Totally didn't expect it, but since most of my readers are pregnant women or moms it makes sense.

There is some great stuff out there. One of the blogs I'm digging is the818.com by Morgan. Great, real look at pregnancy with some cool design stuff too.

She does a weekly update on what's going on with her and her pregnancy. All those questions that folks would ask.

But since men aren't the ones doing the hard work no one asks us what's up with us.

I thought it would be fun to answer her update questions from a male point of view. So here goes:


How far along? Officially 22 weeks and 4 days, but since I know a little more about math and the female body than every doctor I know that it's really closer to 20.

Total weight gain/loss: Down 3 pounds...sorry.

Stretch marks? I always had these little ones on my ankles...I think they are from when I grew to a enormous 5'6&q…
