    Sippy Tether!
    linzuh04 posted:

    I got 2 of these. 1 for DD and 1 for DS. They attach to their sippy and then whatever else they are sitting in, whether it be the stroller, chair at the restaurant, or the airplane seat. Everytime they threw their sippy, I didnt have to fetch it. They just pulled it up from the tether.

    This ranks up there as one of the best inventions ever for parents on the With that tether, and their inflatable booster seats at restaurants, they are perfectly happy and quiet.

    If you go to you can them straight from the maker. I believe they are cheaper since it is not overseas. It is buy 3 get one free and free shipping. I LOVE these!

    They actually sell these in Kohls, not sure what they are called but its only like $2.99. It comes in handy especailly during dinner time when Ava throws her sippy off the highchair after every sip.
    SierraJ99 responded:
    Maybe I should have patented this idea. :-) I tie a shoelace around the sippy, toys, whatever...(keeping it short enough within standard guidelines of course). I use it on high chairs when we go out to eat, on the stroller...everything.

    Oh well, another one of my bright ideas not taken advantage of. ;-)
