So I researched our options for glass, aluminum and stainless steel and presented him with the available options. We liked aspects of different bottles, but not one had everything we were hoping for. "You could do better" was his comment to me... and so I thought about it.
A week later, Fill Your Own Inc was born. We wanted practical every-day-use water bottles that were also eco-friendly, healthy and safe. We designed our bottles with our 4-year-old daughter in mind which meant quality was very important. And of course, the caps had to be leak proof. Unknowingly, our daughter tested this for us by sleeping with the prototype bottle and yes, her bed was completely dry in the morning.

We got to try out two of Fill Your Owns bottles. A 350ml Puddle Jumper bottle for Brandon and a 500ml Puppy Power bottle. I love the designs on these bottles. They are playful and fun but no babyish so it really can grow with your child.
Kristina loved hers and wanted to use it right away. Brandon liked his as well but was a bit more patient. I loved the wide mouth and that Brandon, especially, had a straw. He felt like a big boy because it had a straw. Its like a non leaking big boy cup. The only time it leaked was when the lip was off and it was being shaken upside down. With the lid on though you could shake it as hard as you could and it wouldn't leak a drop. Its nice to know that it could roll around in the van and not leak juice all over the place.
Speaking of the lid, it was very easy to open and close. Brandon quite enjoyed opening and closing it. The only bummer is that we have tile floor and its very hard on things, like our sippy cups. They end up thrown on the floor all the time. Sadly the lid of Brandon's cup broke. This has happened many other times with many other sippy cups, so its not the cup, just our darn floor.
