Sippy cups play a big role in your child’s growing and development. Choosing the right one for your little one is important in supporting different needs and stages of growth. With some many different types and options, it can be difficult to understand the differences between the different products and what will serve your child best. That’s why we’ve rounded up the 9 best sippy cups of the year to help you make the perfect selection!
1. OXO Tot Sippy Cup With Handles
Along with its modernized look and the super cool leak-proof lid featuring a fun little dimple in the middle (making room for little noses), it also features large, non-slip handles that can be removed once your child is ready to graduate to a cup.
2. Dr. Brown’s Soft Spout Training Cup
One of the leaders in the baby bottle market, Dr. Brown, has created an interchangeable training cup that features a special sip-activated valve, which will only release a flow of liquid when your baby drinks — no spills!
3. Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature
This award-winning cup from Britain features a softer spout and Advance-Flo technology to help ease the transition from bottle to cup, while helping to ensure healthy oral development at the same time.
4. Playtex First Sipster Cup
This is a classic sippy with a slim-rounded spout that is inexpensive, easy to clean, durable and just an all-round workhorse that can be thrown around numerous times without damage. (Can you tell I’m an owner?)
5. Thermos Foogo Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Soft Spout Sippy Cup
Now you can get a great cup that is plastic-free and insulated! Thanks to the TherMax® double-wall vacuum insulation, this cup will keep liquids cool for up to six hours, making it excellent for hot beach days!
6. Thinkbaby BPA Free No Spill Sippy Cup
Since most baby bottles use silicone nipples, the soft silicone spout on this cup makes transitioning from bottle to sippy easier, but more importantly, it’s completely free of bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, nitrosamines, PVC, Tritan, Melamine, lead and biologically toxic chemicals!
7. Safe Sippy 2 Straw Bottle
Kidbasix left no stone unturned, covering so many areas with this bottle: non-leaching stainless steel with a protective sleeve protecting little hands from cold liquids, a travel cap, convertible sippy-to-straw adaptor, plus thirsty kids will really appreciate the larger 11-ounce size!
8. Born Free Training Cup
Jessica Alba’s daughter and Nicole Richie’s kids are both fans of Born Free, a company that has a cult-like celebrity baby and mom following thanks to the low vacuum valve and BPA-free plastic.
9. Tilty Cups
This may not have handles, but with its patent pending design, Tilty keeps liquids at an angle, which makes drinking from a sippy a cinch!
