I’ve been contemplating for a while on what to write about on my blog. At first, I thought I would write mainly about family, baby stuff and Poli sippy cup. After meditating, I got my answer — it would be about all those things and my journey of starting a product all by myself. Tons of blogs out there talk about family and baby stuff, which are important, but the Universe told me there is no one out there blogging about creating a Poli sippy cup.

On my blog, I will be honest and raw with all the details about following through with your own invention — the good, the bad and the ugly. I will also focus on how I stayed resilient during the challenging times when I was close to quitting. I’m glad I didn’t though, because fast forward eight years later I have a product I’m thrilled to share with the world. I hope to spread the word about our amazing product all over the world through blogging but more importantly, I hope I can inspire women all over the world to pursue their dreams.

Welcome to Poli! The Poli family is proud to announce our easy-to-clean sippy cup. This sippy cup solves many sippy cup nightmares for parents.

I started this journey seven years ago to invent the perfect sippy cup for parents. When my two children were babies I was at wit’s end with sippy cups.
Most of the traditional sippy cups had to many parts and they were impossible to adequately clean.

Sippy cups became a nightmare for us trying to figure out which lid or valve fit with which cup. Also, moms can relate to the tiny, transparent parts that get lost in obscure corners of the dishwasher or drain. These cups would become useless without the right parts.

Cleaning sippy cups is one of the most time consuming tasks parents don’t look forward to. Who wants to spend extra time cleaning juice or old milk trapped in the small parts out with a brush so it doesn’t turn to mold. That’s when I decided that today’s modern moms needed a better choice.

Poli sippy cups solve all those problems with a unique patented “easy-to-clean and no parts to lose” design. The tiny holes open up for an easier way to thoroughly clean. All the small parts are tethered to the inside of the lid to prevent lost pieces in the dishwasher. No more missing parts.

It was designed to have an easy flow so babies don’t need to suck hard for liquid. There is also a patented built-in-valve to prevent giant spills when your child decides to throw it across the room or knock it over like my children have done.

The cup is made out of a material that is hard to break so parents don’t need to worry about it being dropped or thrown. On top of that, the spout is strong, durable and long lasting for kids who love to chew and chew and chew. No more yucky tops like my kids would say with the chewed up spouts.

Poli cups come in three varieties: Humpty Dumpty, Hey Diddle Diddle, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. The art work is colorful and playful with the nursery rhyme wrapped around the cup. Parents can have a teachable moment anytime and anywhere. Did you know babies hearing

nursery rhymes over and over again learn to read faster? I know because I was an elementary school teacher for ten years. This is how I taught my kids at home when they were babies.

Poli is a sippy cup you can feel good about – made in America, BPA, phthalate and lead free – one less worry on your mind.

So…What will you do with  your extra time today?
