Pretty much since Christmas I was getting headache after headache. Just like with lunch, I always made sure the girls had drinks, but not always me. I’d get to the end of the day with a headache niggling away, and wake up in the night gasping for a drink, drinking 2 pints of water through the night.
I KNEW I had to drink more water, something I was really good at when working, but useless at as a stay at home mum/mummy of maternity leave, I just really struggled to actually do it.
I was sent a press release about this water bottle, the ION8 water bottle, which comes in several sizes from a kids perfect 350ml Pod, an Ultimate Ion8, a ‘slim’ version holding a perfect 500ml and a huge 1l version too. There is also a ‘cycle bottle too’. They come in loads of colours, I also love the Rose Quartz one! Toddler H and I have both been sent one to try and after a few weeks of use I can tell you they haven’t leaked once. They’re super easy to use. They even have a lock on them to make sure they are secure. They DO open one handed. Mummy essential wise, they clean really easily too, with no filters, just a hole so no nasties can lurk inside.
Why do I love our Ion8 bottles?
Since they arrived I’ve carried my slim Ion8 bottle most places with me. H has used hers almost daily too. I’ve not had a single headache since, and must say I do think my skin is better too. I’ve far less spots not waking gasping for a drink means I only wake when B wakes for a feed. Which. Is. Awesome. On rare occasions she even sleeps through. Even more AWESOME.
I have three favourite things I love about the ion8, which make drinking water with the ion8 even better:
1️⃣ – it actually fits in the car cup holders,
2️⃣ – it means H can be a #minime #matchingmummyanddaughter
3️⃣ – it’s super versatile and can take hot drinks too!! ☕️
It does say it might be hot to touch, and technically can take a drink from -10C to 96C! Which is impressive.
You all know how I love my tea and coffee 😁
It’s also BPA free, soft touch, has a carry strap and a secure lid which is easy to use with one hand.
This totally gets 100% in the New Mummy Blog recommended stakes. 💯✔️
