How much money do you think you have wasted on organic, non-gmo squeeze pouches for your children? I know I have purchased a lot of these (and I am only a mother of one). They are not a necessity, but my daughter loves them. They are great for when we are running errands and such.
Good news for you: You can buy reusable ones! Nature’s Little Squeeze pouches from WeeSprout is hands down one of the best money saving products I have purchased as a mother. I was so excited when I learned about Nature’s Little Squeeze. I am going to list out the pros and cons of this product for you and you can choose for yourself if it is worth your money!
WeeSprout is family owned
This is a small family owned business located out of Memphis, TN. The owner is a woman named Liz and her husband is the co-owner. They have five children. They want to live a more natural and healthy lifestyle as do many of us. Hence the reason they designed, Nature’s Little Squeeze. Watch this video to learn more about the family.
Dishwasher and Freezer Safe
Though they claim that this product is dishwasher safe, I still choose to wash mine by hand. Mostly because it is so easy to clean anyway! I don’t feel like it is necessary to use the dishwasher. The fact that these are freezer safe as well is so great! You can make a big batch of baby food, put it in the pouches, and freeze them! Then just thaw one out in warm water when you need it. So easy and simple!
The price of Nature’s Little Squeeze is great. It is not overly expensive. You can get six pouches for $16.99. If you are first time customer you get a 10% off coupon. Not to mention shipping is free on all orders in the USA! One of the Plum squeeze pouches (organic and non-gmo brand) from Target costs about $1.75 (depending on which flavors and sizes you get). So you can see how these would save a lot of money. Especially, if you are already buying the squeeze pouches from the store on a regular basis.
Three Different Sizes For All Ages
The pouches are made for children of all ages, starting at 4 months old. Therefore, you can buy the pouches in three different sizes. Or you can choose to buy the package that comes with 2 pouches in each size, which is what I did. I tend to use the medium-sized and large-sized pouches the most. The smaller pouches would be great for a younger infant though!
Same Cap As Pouches From The Store
The cap on these pouches is the same size as the ones at the store. So if you ever lose a cap you could just replace it with one from the store!
PVC, Phthalate, and BPA Free
This is very important to me when buying products for my daughter. I do not want to think I am giving her healthy food when in reality, the package that the healthy food is in is laden with chemicals and cancer-causing components.
On all the pouches, there is a Ziploc on the bottom that opens up so you can easily put in the food. When I first ordered these I was a little nervous about the Ziploc. I was thinking that if my daughter squeezed the full pouch while the cap is on, I don’t want the food to leak out of the Ziploc or the seal to bust open. Thankfully, the Ziploc on these are very heavy duty and you do not have to be concerned with the kids opening them or breaking the seal.
Easy to clean
Like I said earlier these are so easy to clean! You wouldn’t think that something like this would be but it is! I typically just run hot water through mine shortly after we use them and it is literally as simple as rinsing it out. No scrubbing or trying to get food out of small spaces. The way it is designed, the top is slightly rounded, as opposed to being squared off, so that there aren’t any sharp corners for food to get stuck in.
Better For The Environment
By using Nature’s Little Squeeze you are creating less waste by putting less unnecessary trash into the landfills.
You Know What’s In The Food
I saved this pro for last because I really think it is the best. When you give your child food through Nature’s Little Squeeze, you know exactly what you are feeding him/her. It will be fresher if you are making your own food and therefore, more nutritious. You can rest assured that what is in the pouch really is healthy and nutritious!
Made in China
Nature’s Little Squeeze is designed in America, but it’s made in China. This might be a big deal to some people. For me, though, this is the only part of this product that I do not like. Therefore, I think the pros most definitely outweigh the cons!
Before you put the food into the pouch, remember to put the cap on. I know, this seems obvious. But, I was so excited that I forgot and I made a huge mess!
