My Favorite Toddler Sippy Cups
In this post I am sharing my favorite sippy cups for toddlers. We’ve been through our fair share of sippy cups with the twins. We have tried at least 10 different types. Some have been great and others not as much. In the end, I am easily able to narrow it down to four favorites. Two for transitioning from the bottle and two for older toddlers. One thing that is great, all the cups listed are very reasonably priced. This is a huge plus in case you ever need to replace them.
Sippy Cups For 6-18 Months
I love this cup because it’s spout is not a huge change from a bottle. All three of my kids were willing to drink from this cup and they started drinking from it before they turned 1 year old. I also like that cup has measurements on the side and that it is easy to clean. Another important feature is the cups are leak proof, until silicone spout wears out. The good news is, if that happens you can buy replacements.
The best part about this cup is the straw works no matter what direction your child turns the cup. It is leak proof, as long as you hear the click when turning the lid into place. Unfortunately, this cup does not have measurements on it, but you can estimate the amount you are pouring by knowing the cup is 7 ounces when full. A negative is the straw is hard to clean. It comes with a tool to clean it, but over time it can create holes in the straw. The good news is they now sell replacement straws.
Sippy Cups For 18+ Months
These cups are very easy to use and travel with. The insulation provides a little extra protection for milk. Again, these cups click when they are locked into place, providing confidence they are sealed well. The cups are also very durable. We still have our cups from when the twins were under 2 years old (they are not 3 and a half). The spout has worn out a bit from them biting on it, but the rest of the cup is in perfect condition. It’s also nice that you can get these cups with character themes (ie Paw Patrol, Hello Kitty, etc). Kids this age love that. Another perk with these cups are they are very easy to clean.
I absolutely love these cups because they are extremely durable. They are also great because they help kids learn how to drink from a cup. They are better when your toddler gets older (2+ years) because they do spill a little bit if dropped from up high. We have had 4 of these cups, for the twins, for over 15 months and they still look to be in perfect condition. There is a watch out when cleaning them. Liquid can get underneath the gasket, so it’s a good idea to remove the gasket every so often and clean the area underneath it and the gasket itself.
It’s interesting that 3 out of 4 cups are made by Munchkin. I’ve been really impressed with their sippy cups. There are so many sippy cups on the market, it can be hard to decide which ones will work best. I hope my experience and this review helps you decide which ones might work the best for your family.
