Top 5 Best Sippy Cups | 2017 Reviews

Congratulations! If you are reading this, it means that your baby is now ready to move on to the next stage of development. As parents, what we would like for our baby is to transition from bottle to cup as they might encounter teeth problems if they don’t. But the transition to the cup to happen in just a snap? Sadly, this can never be.

Before the cup, there lies the transitioning from bottle to sippy cup stage and taking into consideration that this is a very important milestone in your baby’s life, choosing a sippy cup may not exactly be a walk in the park.

Why would you need to have a sippy cup?

First and foremost, spills. Your baby is still trying to establish proper coordination; along the lines of starting to walk, and firming their grips, they are inching closer to causing mayhem in your household. They are used to holding their bottles in practically any way they want, and chances are, if you give them milk in a cup, spills are inevitable.

With this in mind, there is also a lesser chance that your child may get properly hydrated when they are spilling their drink all the time. Which is why it is best if you get a spill proof sippy cup, wherein you will no longer have to deal with the hassle of cleaning up spilled beverages, not to mention avoiding the risk of injury if they slip on one of the spills they made. A sippy cupy could also be your best friend when you travel with your little one, as they are easy to transport and no more worrying about milk leaking out of your bag. Sippy cups vary in a whole lot of ways, you have sippy cups with straw, spill proof ones, eco-friendly ones and a lot more.

Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup

Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup

Looking for sippy cups for 2 years old? Look no more! It might be because your baby was really reluctant in letting go of the bottle, or has gotten tired with spouts, but is still uncomfortable with the flow of liquid from a cup, whatever the reason is, this sippy cup is great for you. Why do we think this is the sippy cup that could offer the best way to transition from bottle to cup? It is dentist approved, no spouts to chew on, just plain getting used to sipping, which is the main purpose, definitely not bad for the teeth. Best for toddlers, especially those who no longer wants to be called babies when they already have younger siblings, but still can cause quite a mess when drinking in normal cups.

We love the spoutless design of Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup that you won’t actually think at first glance it is a sippy cup but just a simple cool glass. You might worry about dealing with spills, since there seemed to be no cover or spout, but the 360-degree drinking edge has the ability to eliminate spills completely. It’s almost enabling your kids to drink in a regular cup because they can drink anywhere around the rim, lip activated, exercising the normal muscles around the mouth for perfect sipping practice. And since there are no spouts, straws or any extra parts that you would need to assemble and pull apart when cleaning or putting in the dishwasher this also saves a lot of time.

This sippy cup will greatly help a toddler into drinking from a cup, while still moderating their intake. Pretty much all you really need, when letting your kid eat or drink on his own, which deserves the number one spot on our list.

Gerber Graduates Fun Grips Hard Spout Sippy Cup

Gerber Graduates Fun Grips Hard Spout Sippy Cup

So your baby already has teeth, and more often than not would resort to biting the nipples out of his bottle, and you are constantly trying to make sure that the flow of liquid is just enough for his intake, that you keep replacing it from time to time. It is both a hassle and frankly could be a bit expensive to do so. Don’t you ever wish that the nipples are durable or at least bite proof, but the sad part is, your baby’s teeth is going to make sure it is not. You do not have to fret because this Gerber transition sippy cup is just the product you might need. Absolutely durable and you are surely going to get your money’s worth on this product, as it comes with a hard spout which is bite proof. This sippy cup also comes with the unique Seal Zone Technology that guarantees no more leaks, if ever your baby would choose to drink from it in every possible position he could think of, highly spill proof and is even break-proof. Despite all of this, the spout is still easy for kids to drink out of.

We are talking about an awesome sippy cup which is good for children who are now ready to drink more fluids, as it has a 10 ounce capacity, typically 12 months to 3 years old. That’s a total of 2 cups of water or milk that you could prepare before going to the playground or grocery, making it very handy. The hourglass shape still makes it easy for even small children to handle the bottle with less difficulty and the wide bottom is designed to prevent tipping, because you know kids can be a little clumsy. We also like the fact that the colors are not gender specific, so it is also a great gift during baby showers that are also gender reveals. One thing to note of when washing this sippy cup is to avoid using abrasive brush to clean the valve to prolong its use.

Almost perfect, but not quite. Because of its wide bottom, it does not exactly fit easily in your diaper bag, car seat cup holder or dishwasher.

NUK Cars Learner Cup

NUK Cars Learner Cup

The Learner Cup is one of the best baby training sippy cups one will encounter. It has easy-grip, anti-slip handles that are easy for babies to hold, which also could be taken off once your baby transitions to cup fully. It is also capable of holding 5 ounces of liquid, perfect for little arms to carry. This sippy cup is also dish-washer safe, and what makes it easier to maintain is that you can use standard bottle brushes to clean the spout and wide cup. Travelling outdoors is a breeze as this is one of the Nuk sippy cups that has a cap perfectly protecting your baby’s drink, and once you take off the handle, it would perfectly slip on your diaper bag. This BPA free sippy cup comes in fun designs that your baby can identify to, such as hot air balloons, cars, and even Hello Kitty and Winnie the Pooh characters they love.

If your baby is teething, you will not encounter any complaints from them regarding this sippy cup as the soft spout could be a great teether! However, since your baby might continue nibbling on this soft spout, it would be best if you would keep replacement silicone spouts handy. This is why this product is at number 3, the replacements could get expensive in the long run.

Philips Avent My Natural Trainer Cup

Philips Avent My Natural Trainer Cup

Not all soft spout sippy cups could make the transition from bottle to cup easy, your baby might refuse to drink from the spout right away. With this comes the Philips Avent My Natural Trainer cup, this sippy cup boasts of its ability to transform from nipple to spout. Yes, if your baby is not yet ready for the spout, let him hold the sippy cup and use the nipple to get him accustomed to it. Slowly but surely really could do the trick. And as both nipple and spout are made from natural soft silicone it definitely is a great choice for babies from 4 months and up.

All good things rolled into one, with a design that would help your baby in slowly getting accustomed to drinking from a cup independently, because as your baby progresses, you could also remove the training handle and voila! The job here is done. This sippy cup comes with a cover, makes it highly hygienic to use especially when the baby is still in the nipple mode. We also love the fact that you could be able to mix and match its parts with other Philips Avent bottle and cup parts. What a great reason to save your other Philips Avent bottle parts right? And last reason why we are loving this sippy cup is because of its twin valve design, making sure that your little one will not experience tummy aches because of cholic.

However, we placed it at the fourth because so many parts can be difficult to manage. Parts may get lost and you need to buy another replacement. Also, the handle couldn't be transferred to other Avent bottles.

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature First Sips Weaning Cup

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature First Sips Weaning Cup

This Tommee tippee sippy cup is a great option for parents who are keen on starting the transition process from bottle to cup a little earlier. Imagine your child at 4 months old, still unable to drink from a cup that would not offer the right amount of fluid that he could take, that definitely spells trouble. It could be either they could have great difficulty in hydrating themselves or worse, not drink at all, especially when being very hyperactive. This is where the Tommee Tippee has great advantage of, it is light compared to other sippy cups, as the bottle has a 5 oz. capacity of liquid, which is very similar to the bottle they are used to and makes it perfect for the little ones to lug around with. It is also spill proof, giving your little tot room for movement without you being worried about cleaning or potential injuries. It also has a nice handle, good for your babies’ little hands and a soft sippy spout that would not hurt when sucking, further lessening the problems you would encounter during the transition. The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature First Transition cup is also easy to wash, pull apart, and could fit in the top shelf of your dishwasher, this makes it highly easy to maintain and care for, especially if you are the type of parent who is on the go.

Despite every possible reason to love this product, the downfall also lies on its special capacity, the valve, which could be a little difficult to clean and although it is dishwasher safe, your best bet would still be to meticulously clean it by hand from time to time.

Conclusion

The changing from bottle to cup stage could be a little messy, not just because of spills or leaks, but on how your child would adapt to the development they are about to go through. Choosing a great sippy cup could be a great help in facilitating this transition, but as one should already know, only the kids know when they are truly ready. It might take them a week, month or even a few years to do so, but we’re pretty sure they will. And as parents, we need to learn how to support and not push because our babies will still amaze us with how they are able to do it on their own.
