My Favorite Mommy Tip - Juice Box Wings

A friend recently introduced me to the concept of "wings" on a juice box. I wish that I could claim this tip as my own, it's that good. Ok, so I may have been the last person in the world to hear of this concept, but I know there have to be other fresh off the truck mommies who haven't, right? Right? Bueller?

Ok so anyway, here it is - Juice Box "Wings":

Just fold up the little cardboard tabs on the side, and have your child hold the box by the "wings."


It keeps them from squeezing the box and wearing the juice! And they think it's pretty cool.

What's your favorite "Mommy Tip?"

OMG, that is GENIUS! Can't believe it was there all along. I'm soooo tired of wiping up spilled juice that we have an 'outside only' rule for juice boxes (we call them 'poppers' in Australia... due to the sound they make when you finish your juice and you step on them really hard!!!!) x

So simple but makes sense. My little one ALWAYS spills. Now I just drink like 1/3 of it before I give it to her, to avoid that initial squeeze of the full box that leaves it pouring out all over her till she finally makes it to her mouth.

No way, I had no clue! Well, JD squeezes it on purpose right now, but that's good to know. LOL

Clever! I'm going to try it out tomorrow! We get so sick of saying "don't squeeze or it will spill!" Like previous commenter, I too drink 1/3 of the box before I give it to my son. :)
