boon Swig Spout and Caterpillar Stack Container Review

If you’ve opened any baby or maternity magazines, you have probably seen the innovative modern designs of boon baby products.

Swig would look good in a design museum or thrown in the backseat of your car. But it’s not just a looker, it’s a doer. It gets your child accustomed to drinking with its ergonomic, easy to grip shape and fun straw or spout options. And the lids are totally interchangeable, so you can mix and match on-the-go.

I absolutely LOVE the look of this spout cup, and the fact that it is ergonomically designed is an added bonus.  I think the best part of this cup is that the lid swivels so it won’t fall off, get dirty, or get lost!  It is easy enough to pivot, too, so that Baby can move the lid back and forth to get sips.  Mommy will probably have to help close the lid though; it has to snap down after it pivots in order to hold the nipple down.  Don’t discount that spout though; it is spill-proof, but instead of little holes that can get blocked, this silicone spout top has a small X in the middle.  It will be perfect for my little one who will not be accustomed to sucking from a bottle.   Of course, as with all boon products, it is BPA, PVC, and phthalate free AND, wait for the drumroll, it is top-rack dishwasher safe!

Swig Sippycup The Stack Caterpillar Snack Container is about the best-looking snack container I have ever seen!  This snack container is just plain HAPPY!  What toddler / pre-schooler wouldn’t love to get her snacks from a friendly caterpillar!  Look at those cute little antennae!

It’s useful too.   There’s nothing worse than having a purse full of crumbled snacks spilling out of tired plastic baggies. Caterpillar Stack lets you keep all your snacks safe and intact while on-the-go. The snack lid lets little hands in but keeps treats where they belong, which is not on the floor of your car.

This handy-dandy snack container keeps snacks separate with three interlocking containers, which is perfect for my MES who apparently has become one of those kids who doesn’t want any foods touching each other – cross-contamination, I suppose.  The snap-shut sliding doors are perfect for quick dispensing, and the tall lid accommodates  larger snacks.  Hooray for apple slices and celery sticks (I would say carrot sticks too if your little one is old enough to keep them from being a choking hazard!)!  AND I think this would be an awesome educational tool as well teaching top, middle, and bottom.  You can pack one compartment or all three depending on your needs.  Simply remove the parts that you don’t need, but why would you want to dismember this cute caterpillar – I’d find three snacks just so we could have the cuteness with us!

Speaking of cuteness, the boon Glo balls are out of this world cute!  Our new house isn’t in the city so we have no streetlights burning our retinas as we sleep – which is a very good thing – but it is REALLY dark at night without the lights on – REALLY, REALLY dark!  I am heading over to to buy this awesome nightlight for our room; it’s not that I am “afraid” of the dark, but feeding Clara in the middle of the night knowing there are bats in the attic above my bed can be kind of, well, ewww!  A night light helps me feel a little better.  (Oh, I didn’t tell you about the bats?  Yep, we have bats – just another thing in the long list of things that went wrong when we moved! lol.)  Oh, and get this, the balls on the night light are… (wait for it) PORTABLE!  I can send a kiddo up with a night light ball and pick it up when I head to bed.  What a concept!

Glo Color-changing Nightlight with Portable Glowing BallsI also love the baby tub.  I am saving our baby gift cards to purchase this really useable tub.  We have tried baby tubs in the past, but this one looks like it will grow with baby.  They say it can be used even for toddlers.  I’m all for that!  It looks like it will hold up well, drain well, and can even be hung to dry.  It also comes in some really great colors!  It’s got to be better than our kitchen sink!

So, hop on over to boon at and find practical baby gear that just oozes adorable.  There is no need to have a boring baby when there is boon!
