My ped said to remove the valve in the sippy cup the first time I give it to lo so he understands there is water in there. Well, I got the Avent sippy cup, which doesn't have a removable valve-- it's all one piece. I have tried giving it to ds anyway, but I'm not sure he's actually gotten water out of it. Usually it looks like a tiny bit is gone, but not as much as I would think he drank based on how long he was sucking on it.
Onto the mesh feeder... How do I clean it well? I spend a lot of time trying to get all the little food bits out of the mesh, but I feel like I am never fully successful. So far we have only put banana in it. Maybe that's not a good choice to use in there? He really loves it, but I don't want it to become unsanitary.
