Are you ready to win one of 2 Mystery Hampers from Brother Max worth R500 each?

There comes a time in a mother’s life when the way looking forward, is that of a life without diapers, pacifiers and bottles with teats to clean. That is the point at which I now find myself. Having a ten, seven and almost four-year old, means that my days of finding lost dummies, bottle teats or making sure diapers are available, are nearly a thing of the past. So besides being a Lifestyle and Beauty blog this is also a parenting blog and I am a parent going through all the same parenting obstacles all moms do. That being said, the tiny little hurdle of actually getting my toddler off the traditional bottle, seemed to be dragging on way too long and nothing I tried seemed to have any affect on her choice being made to trade it in for a more age appropriate drinking vessel. That was until I was invited to a recent product launch by Clicks Baby for their new offering, of which included the highly renowned UK brand Brother Max that would be selling at the Clicks stores.

When a box of awesome Brother Max weaning products arrived at my home, I was over the moon excited.  I had absolutely fallen in love with the trendy, functional and exciting range of Brother Max products on the day of the product launch, and had my eye on a few of the items. I was mainly interested in seeing if we could finally find a drinking vessel to make the change from the traditional bottle, that would be accepted and stuck to. I receive a number of products to try to am incredibly pleased to say that we managed to find 4 products in the range that we now use daily and the traditional bottle has finally left the building!

The tagline for Brother Max products is “Simple, Clever Ideas” and they really are just that. I am yet to come  across another fun, trendy but totally functional range of products like this one and after ten years of parenting, I can tell you that I have been through them all.

Mila is my almost four-year old daughter. She has always been very set in her ways. I honestly didn’t know which product range I should try next to try to get her off her traditional bottle and quite frankly, I was at my wit’s end thinking she may be drinking one until high school.  She had taken every last sippy cup or trainer cup that I had presented her with in the last 2 years and told me emphatically that she was not interested. By the time I came across the Brother Max range we had gotten to the point that she was ready to give up her beloved dummy and we had arranged a massively exciting event to do the deed… we were going to leave the dummies for the monkeys on the mountain. When we discussed this I told her that she needed to also do the same with her bottle. Well she didn’t bite and so I still sat without a solution. Enter Brother Max.  When I showed her the box of colourful items, she was so excited.  She couldn’t pick one fast enough and the first thing she chose was the 2 drinks in 1 bottle. She had me immediately fill it up. I explained to her how it worked and that we would need to freeze the middle section first. That was met with a squeal of delight as we went through the actions of filling the parts and putting them in to freeze and get cold.

The second item she chose from the box was the trainer cup. I took it apart and showed her how she could use it at night with the teat so she wouldn’t spill and then also during the day by removing the sipper teat and using it as a cup.  It has a really great drinking rim so that really helps with toddlers learning to drink from a cup. It just makes sipping so much easier. The handles on the cup are also super comfy and well designed. This is probably the biggest contributor to us finally ditching the bottle after all.

We also use the Easy hold plates and Bowls. These are so lovely.  Just the right size for little hands and the perfect size for the right portion of food. The bowls are designed in such a way that little hands can hold them securely with one hand and dish up with their fork or spoon. They are bright and cheery and lots of fun to eat from.  We have had endless fun creating fun meals to put on them. The bowls are great for cereals, soups, stews, pasta’s and yoghurt/puddings. The nicest of all is that they as well as the rest of the range is dishwasher safe and BPA free.

The Brother Max range of products has something to suit everybody. The selection includes products for drinking, eating and travelling. We were past the stage of bibs and frozen baby foods and milk powder dispensers, but they have some lovely products for babies just learning to eat and who are still at the early stages of weaning.. Even though I haven’t tried them yet, I also think weaning pots will be good for small snacks while travelling too and not jsut for frozen food. So if you got them when your baby was just starting solids then you could use them until much later also. Below is the breakdown of all the products currently available in the weaning range. You can check out the entire range in their product catalogues on their website, but I thought I would list them here with some of the descriptions and images.

Weaning Pots Small

My baby is 10months and only just started with solids so I am still at the eager phase of doing home cook meals for Ettienne so I would like to use the Weaning pods, I would also like to try the trainer because he does not want to drink from a bottle.

  4. I love the Weaning Bowl Set, 2 Drinks in 1 Bottle,2x easy-hold bowls,2x easy-hold plates. I have an 11 month old little boy who already wants to do things himself, so the 2 easy hold items would be really handy

  5. I choose Catch & Fold Baby Bibs
    Milk Powder Dispenser
    Easy-hold bowls
    Sippy Cup
    to use for feeding times – and bibs to help keep it off the cats’ heads.
    Ask me in 2 weeks what the gender will be.

  6. Snack Pot Bowl
    Easy-hold Plates
    Weaning Bowl Set
    Catch & Fold Baby Bibs
    The wife said we would probably need to feed the newling once it has arrived and weaned off the bottle – so I would like to be prepared. Apparently it is a surprise for another few weeks before we know the gender.

  7. I love the Weaning Bowl Set, 2 Drinks in 1 Bottle,2x easy-hold bowls,2x easy-hold plates. My grandson is one yeAR OLD old little boy and I look after him 24/7. He already wants to do things himself, so the 2 easy hold items would be really handy. Please pick me I would love to win

  8. I have a busy little 8 month old baby boy who loves food!! So we try make feeding times fun and exciting! Love the BrotherMax range, its so bright and attractive! My favourites are:
    – Large weening pots! (I make my babies food so these are great for home freezing)
    – Easy to hold bowls (We have a few of these already, and they are the best!!)
    – Catch and fold baby bib (Looks brilliant!! Love the pouch at the bottom for messy eaters!)
    – Easy to hold plates (before I know it my little one will be eating with us around the table, so these will be great)

    All of these will make weening fun and great for both my baby and myself!
    Fingers crossed!!

  9. I would love to try the large and small weaning pots and the snack pot bowl and milk powder dispenser. I have a 5 month old boy. What a fantastic giveaway

  10. Brother Max Products have been nothing short of absolutely brilliant since I started using their goods for my 14 month old. To win this hamper would make life a breeeeeeeze

    1. Thank you for entering Angela. Remember to let us know which 4 Products you would most like to try and where you would use them. You need to do this to qualify.

      1. Ohhhh. Sorry. Well tough one. I love the snack pot bowl. It would make sure that there is less of a mess in the car when we travel far to visit the grandparents.

        The easy hold bowls. She currently uses things that look like porridge bowls. Breakfast lunch and dinner. She is a finger snack eater. So she carries the bowl to her spot where she sits, sometimes gets distracted on the way there and spills some snacks. These will help with carrying her food to the right spot because she is completely independent. Loves doing things herself.

        Then the third one is the trainer cup. I have gotten her so far as to use a sippy cup and straws but one of these days she will have to drink out of a cup. She drinks out of glasses but we have to hold it for her. This will help plenty. This will be anytime. Any place.

        And lastly the weaning bowl set. I am a mother that makes goodies in order to stay at home with my daughter, hence I do a lot of flea markets. These bowls will help sooooo much when i do markets. All her food right there.

        Thanks for the opportunity

  11. I would like the 2 drinks in 1 bottle for when me and my boy go out,2 easy hold plates, snack pot bowl and traveling spoons for my boy that is 2years old and we love going out so this will just be great

  12. My little boy is 13 months old and a little busy bee! Snack pot bowl would be awesome especially for car trips in his car seat because he has been crying in the car seat lately and this will keep him nice and busy. The easy hold plate would be lovely as he has recently decided that he is too big for his boots and prefers to feed himself! Sippy cup would also be used daily because my boy just loves cups. And last but not least, the toddler bibs! This is more for me because I do think baby boy enjoys feeding his clothes. Mommy, however does not enjoy scrubbing food off tiny clothes!

  13. I love the traveling spoon that changes colour it show if the food I warm enough for baby to eat . And also the 2 drinks in 1 bottle .love to win it for my grandaughter ,she is 1 1/2 years .thank you for letting us know brother max products.

  14. Oh wow…which 4? All their products are amazing! I have one of their training cups and food storage dishes. Would love to add to the collection :)

    I have a little boy and he is 7 months old. FOr him now I think I’d like to try:
    1. Weaning bowl set for when we’re out and about…it would come in handy. I once left a half eaten tub of yoghurt in his bag and it ended up all over his cloth nappies! Urgh.
    2. 2 drinks in one bottle for when he’s a bit older. THis would be great as he turns 1 in AUgust so come summer, he’s got the perfect bottle to keep his drinks nice and cool :)
    3. 2 easy hold plates so he can attempt to feed himself and be a bit independent…though I swear my child has no issues with being independent. lol.
    4. Travel spoons… I love that they are heat sensitive and they’ll go with our weaning bowl set. THat we can use right now already.

    Fingers crossed!

    I’d like to use them when baby is outa my tummy, altho, mommy could probably use the castch and fold bib in the meantime!:) LOL

  18. These products sound amazing! My 2.5yo son is also very attached to his bottle & has not been interested in any sippy cups we’ve tried, so I’m very keen to give the Brother Max sippy cup a try after reading your success story!

The 3rd item I would live to give a try is the 2 Drinks 1 Bottle, what a brilliant idea, not only convenient, but now I won’t have to worry about his juice getting hot. And lastly the Travel Spoons, perfect for little hands and especially while we are camping!
