I don’t know about you, but between my circle of friends and family, everyone’s kids seem to be carrying around the same sippy cups and bottles. It’s a confusing matter trying to figure out what belongs to whom, and in this season of cold-catching, it can also be dangerous.
We have a few types of labels in our house to help combat this. There’s the washable stickers with Emma’s name on them and we also have rubber bands that you can wrap around cups and containers. The stickers work well, but they don’t wrap the entire area of the sippy, and the rubber band labeling system worked until it was put in the wash and the permanent ink rubbed off.
My new favorite method of labeling sippy cups, sports bottles, and snack containers is the Orbit Labels by Inchbug. These labels can be personalized with your child’s name, nickname, whatever you want – and the text you choose is embedded in the label so it won’t fade or wash off. They can be washed, boiled, sterilized – you name it. The wide labels orbit around anything from a 4 ounce bottle to a 30 ounce sport bottle, so they can be used not only by children but are for adults too.
The other cool thing about these is that the personalization can also be “read” in braille. Orbit Labels come in a package of four that you can have personalized whatever way you like in the color you choose. After you select your details, they ship in about 5-10 days. It is well worth the wait, and these only cost $13.95 for a package of four. For Em, we chose pink and inscribed her full name. I like that they are nice and wide and large enough to be seen from afar.
One winner will receive a set of four personalized Orbit Labels!
