My Favorite Sippy Cup
Despite how the title of this post sounds, it is not actually MY sippy cup, but my daughter's sippy cup. She just isn't able to articulate why she has selected the one she has to be her favorite so I am here doing that for her. Now that we got that awkwardness out of the way I will reveal and review her favorite and other ones that did not make the cut.
I can't believe it is already time for Princess C to start drinking from a cup! This first year is really flying by. We've been through three types of sippy cups but it seems we have found our winner (more on that one later). First I will review the other two options we presented to C and why they didn't work. Then for the big reveal, the "winner" if you will, will be reviewed last.
However, this sippy cup is nothing like their bottles or pacifiers and C did not take to this at all. I think the problem may have been the spout being too hard. There is no flexibility and while it is small enough for her to get her mouth on it, she was not able to get any water to come out. I've seen reviews mentioning that you cannot screw that lid on so the spout sits in-between the two handles, however this is not something that I have experienced.
This cup is BPA free. In terms of cleaning, there is a valve that you have to watch out for and take care to remove from the lid for proper cleaning.
I know this is meant to be a transition cup but I'm curious to see if C will take to it once she is older and understands the process of drinking from a cup better and gets the strength to pull the water out. We'll see, but for now, this cup will live in my cabinet.
However, and maybe this is because C is too small or has a small mouth, the spout was really awkward for her to fit into her mouth. She didn't get any water out of it whenever I gave it to her and she would chew on the spout for a few seconds before scrunching up her face and pushing the cup out of her mouth.
I'm going to hang on to these though because I have a feeling when she is a bit older these may work well for her. Once she doesn't need a handle the grips on the sides of this cup are great. So these will live in my cabinet too.
Don't worry mamas, water does not come out when she takes this cup by the handle and swings it all around. It truly is a "miracle".
This is really easy to clean too, only three pieces and no valves that could bread mold. Top rack dishwasher safe makes cleaning even more of a breeze. This cup is also BPA free.
Another milestone reached. Our princess is drinking from a sippy cup. Soon she will be off the bottle completely and then she'll be going to kindergarten and then... okay, I'm starting to spiral a little bit she can't go anywhere, she can't drive (yet!!)
