As I stood at the airport and waved goodbye to my husband and 18 month old daughter, a sense of disbelief began to sink in. This was definitely not the plan for today. This unexpected farewell, was due to unfortunate events arising from a leaking water bottle and my passport, which had now been rendered invalid by a very understanding but rule abiding airline clerk.
As a diligent Mum, I’d packed the offending water bottle to ensure our daughter stayed hydrated on the trip. What I hadn’t planned for, was that most of its contents would escape into my trusty travel bag on our way to the airport. 48 hours later, with over $750 in extra costs due to lost flights and a replacement passport, I was finally able to join my gorgeous family and our friends in sunny Fiji for what was left of our holiday.
Thus began my quest for the ‘leak proof drink bottle’. I quickly learnt that when it comes to children’s products, not all of them live up to their claims. I have over three dozen children’s drink bottles in all different shapes and sizes, which somehow, all eventually allow water to escape. Some slowly, some once they have been in the dishwasher, some immediately upon first use.
