WFMW - The Backwards Edition - Organizing sippy cups and bottles
Around here we have a fair selection of sippy cups and bottles. They are all the same brand so the parts all interchange with one another. However, they still are an awkward thing to store. They tip over easily in the cupboard and then there are all the little valves and lids and food storage seals and nipples to store. Any suggestions?

Go to Rock in My Dryer for the full WFMW Backwards Edition list!

I just dealt with this issue myself yesterday at our house. Here's the what I did. First I assembled all of the bottles so that I could see how many extra parts I had. Then I took the fully assmbled ones that we do not use and put them in storage in the nursery (we'll use them when she gets older). Then I organized the assembled bottles in the itchen cabinet. It was so much easier than having tubs of nipples and caps and liners. Everything is ready to grab and use.

PS- the extra parts were zip-locked and stored in the nursery as well.

Ugh...I hear you on this one! I ended up clearing out an entire cabinet (in my already cramped kitchen) for baby stuff. I usually spread all of the parts out to dry after washing then I assemble each cup/bottle and store it put together. Then I stack my bowls and stack the lids. I also use coffee mugs for the small parts to my pump and other valves. I wish I had some awesome solution....I'll keep checking back to see if anyone has the magic answer for us!

I don't have a ton of bowls and plates for my toddler, so they all stay in the same cabinet as our plates. The bottles are packed up, and then we have a drawer that the assembled sippy cups and bibs go in. It makes it nice and easy cuz they don't have to stand up, so I don't have to worry about them falling over and falling out of the cabinet.

Don't keep more than you need.

Store them in a basket.

Put them together when they come out of the dishrack or dishwasher.

I, too, resorted to an entire three-shelf cabinet just for baby/toddler needs. I took a really large, rectangular tupperware container (lid off) and placed it in the top shelf. The cups and bottles fit perfectly upright and I could just pull down the whole box to get one out or put clean ones up...no more tipping!
I also assemble them right out of the dishwasher; not doing that means I will lose parts and miss-match lids, causing leaks!

We have a Sterilite basket that holds all cups, sippies, etc. Once cups have been washed and dried they are assembled and put in the basket. The basket is kept in the "Kid Cabinet" because they are now old enough to get their own water when they want it.
