Water Bottles For Pregnancy

Stanley Quencher- Oh the popular Stanley Tumbler that can’t stay in stock. It’s all the rave all over social media and my house too. For good reason, might I add.

Once upon a time the Stanley was primarily used by campers now it’s a huge favorite among mothers and it is incredibly useful as a pregnancy water bottle with a straw and one of the best postpartum water bottles around.

Why are Stanley cups so popular? 

 Because they come in a variety of beautiful colors, the Quencher can hold up to 40 ounces which is almost half of the daily pregnancy recommended amount, there’s a side handle for easy carrying and it can fit in a car’s cupholder.

You can sip on this thing for hours!

  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Reusable.
  • Your drink will stay cold for hours.

The downside is the price tag, and the lid isn’t leakproof.

Drinking For Two Water Bottle- If you’re looking for a more decorative water bottle and something to keep you on track this motivational water bottle from Etsy should help.

It’s your standard wide-mouth water bottle that you can personalize with a variety of colors. This would also be a good bottle to use while breastfeeding.

On the bottle, you’ll see “Baby On Board Drinking For Two” and time reminders to drink.

You can also have it customized.

The downside. There is no straw or handle to carry.

Reduce Tumbler- The Reduce tumbler is what I call the Stanley tumbler dupe. If you truly don’t want to spend the money on a more expensive water jug, this would be a good choice.

It has an open handle which I love. Running out the door into the car I slide the handle onto my bag and keep the bag snugged against me so it doesn’t spill. This keeps my hands free for a bit.

The Reduce is a stainless steel water bottle with a “sip-it-your-way” lid. Use the straw or take sips from it.

  • Less expensive.
  • Comes in six colors.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • You can sip on it for hours.

The downside. It doesn’t keep your water cold for long hours and scratches up pretty easily.

If you’re looking for the best water bottle for labor and delivery most if not all labor and delivery units will give you a water bottle. If your hospital doesn’t provide one bring along the Reduce or Stanley.

Yeti Rambler- The real superstar of all tumblers is the Yeti anyone of them really but we’re talking about the need for a pregnancy water bottle. So I’ll stick with that.

The Yeti Rambler is 30 ounces so you’ll need to refill it a little more frequently. But whether you have cold liquids or hot ones, they will stay that way for hours.

It’s a stainless steel vacuum-insulated tumbler with a mag slider lid.  

This means your liquid will remain at the temperature it started as I mentioned above, the lid is leakproof and even if your mag slider pops off, you can put it right back on with no problem.

  • Dishwasher safe.
  • BPA-free.
  • No sweat design.
  • Can fit in your cup holder.

There’s also a 26-ounce Yeti Rambler with a straw.

The downside. You will need to refill more often and Yeti cups can be more on the pricey side.

Mason Jar With Straw- A Mason jar is good for many things including holding your morning smoothie or a nice glass of cold water.

For lounging around the house a mason jar with a lid and straw is a really good option. It’s also a great option when you don’t want to spend 40 bucks on a water bottle or minimalist is your thing.

The downside. It’s glass and you’ll need to refill it often.

Milk Juice Cute Water Bottle- If you’re looking for a cute water bottle here it is. Sunshine and daisies.

  • Two lids.
  • Glass bottle.
  • Measurements in millimeters on the back.
  • Comes in 6 different designs.

The downside. It’s glass so it can break easily.

Hydro Flask- If you’re here because you’re looking for a breastfeeding water bottle with a straw the Hydro Flask is an extremely durable 32-ounce water bottle that will keep you hydrated at home or on the go.

It’s sleek and comes in over six colors. They can also withstand a good beating which is why my four-year-old has one too.

  • Wide mouth.
  • Stainless steel.
  • BPA-Free.
  • Keeps your drink nice and cold.

The downside. It is on the heavier side weighing 15.5 ounces.

Bink Day Bottle- The beautiful Bink day bottle is the perfect size for carrying and can hold 800 ml of water. Bink comes in some beautiful colors like Honey, Lilac, or Smoke.

You’ll also find AM/PM tracking times on the bottle sleeve.

  • A total of seven colors.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Silicone sleeve.
  • Wide drinking mouth.

Because this is a top-closure water bottle with a thick silicone cover I think this is a much more practical water bottle for your hospital bag.

BellyBottle Pregnancy Water Bottle- If you’re looking for something to help you keep track of your baby’s growth and staying hydrated the BellyBottle is one of the best water bottles to drink during pregnancy to do this.

This one is much cheaper than most on the market.

  • 35 Fruit shape weekly progress stickers.
  • Comes in 3 colors.
  • Tracking times on the opposite of the bottle.

The downside. It requires handwashing, not dishwasher safe.

Simple Modern Water Bottle- The best thing about Simple Modern water bottles is they come in a wide range of sizes. If you want to size up from 32 ounces with 2 lids, you can go all the way up to 128 ounces with 3 lids. Something this large will have you covered for the entire day.

The wide mouth makes this one easier to clean and it’s double-wall insulated so it doesn’t sweat.

  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Comes with a chug and straw lid.

The downside. It is not recommended for hot and carbonated beverages.

A few tips to help you stay hydrated:

  1. Eat foods that are hydrating like peaches, watermelon, cucumber, and apples.
  2. Don’t wait until the end of the day to catch up and try to get hydrated.
  3. Take sips often.
  4. Carry your water bottle everywhere you go.
  5. If you can, keep track of your intake.

We do our best to grow our babies and two of the most important things we need are to stay well nourished and well hydrated. Add your favorite fresh fruit to add a little flavor if you’re someone who isn’t really a fan of drinking water. On those really hot days, drink it ice cold for something refreshing.

Remember, some things this extra water is doing for your body and your growing baby, it’s flushing out waste and helping to build up amniotic fluid. Dehydration during pregnancy can lead to a host of problems.

I hope you find this post on the best water bottle for pregnancy helpful. Cheers to a happy and healthy pregnancy.
