If your child is in daycare, you've probably been asked to label everything. If you're like me, you figured you'd write their name in really nice handwriting on all their bottles, sippys, etc. And then when you realized you were going to be doing it every day either far too late at night or far too early in the morning, you started to swear. And if you're not in daycare, you've probably lost or swapped (...why is it they always steal the pacifier from the kid with the most baby boogers?) far too many items at playgroups and at the park.
Don't look anywhere else. Mabel's Label's are the best. After two years of daycare, the microwave, the dishwasher, boiling water, and generally toddler havoc, they still are sticking strong. The little labels are perfect for smaller items like pacifiers as well.
And you can pick a darling little icon - start categorizing your child as the sports guy, flower girl, car guy, etc. at an overly early age (heck, I did)!
