Hi. My little one will beginning her new school in in the Young toddler room at the end of August and i wanted to get her some new sippy cups with soft spouts. She will need 1 for juice and 1 for milk. She is currenlty using the BPA free Born Free ones but they are so worn out and they leak all over. She is doing very well transitioning to an open faced cup but still relys on her sippy for drinking and relief from teething. Any receommendations?

What can I do next?

I would also recomment the Kleen Kanteen ones. Once they're out of the "sippy cup" stage, I believe you can change lids (sports lid, regular lid). We use Kleen Kanteens for everything and love them.

Actually, my 13 month-old can use my older son's Thermos Foogo cups and they are AWESOME! They have soft straw spouts and don't leak. They also are metal and insulated, keeping milk cold for up to 8 hours!!! I like that the lid flips closed to keep it clean during travel. If you can, go with a straw cup over a sippy since they are preferred for speech development.

I have heard that pediatricians prefer the straw cups as have been recommended. Standard sippy cups can interfere with proper jaw development. My daughter had success with those before she was able to hold her own bottle!

Munchkin straw cups are the only cup my son has ever taken! The straw is flexible and retracts into the cup and it's no spill. They are bpa free and only about $3. You can buy them just about anywhere with a baby section!

We have the born Free ones too, but have also introduced the playtex straw cups. The straw is flexible and has a sliding cover so you can travel with it. Also, it has a feature that if the kids throw the cup or put it upside down it doesn't leak. They have lots of fun patterns too. Just go to Babies R Us and check it out. To my knowledge Babies R Us only carries BPA free now.

My favorite soft spout sippy cup are the Gerber ones. They have soft spout and hard spout. My daughter used the soft spout for a long time until she could figure out how to use the hard spout ones. I would assume they are BPA-free, but I'm not 100% sure.

Kleen Kanteen stainless steel sip cups feature a sip top lid, for $10-$12. Never wear out, never break, not plastic. We've had ours for our boys for 4yrs now, still perfect condition.

I've heard from 2 speech therapists, as well as other pediatric specialists that hard spouted cups are responsible for speech problems in some children. Kids that already have speech problems should stay away from these cups as well as bottles.

We use straw cups, which I recommend becase if you leave a cup at home its easy to find a regular cup and straw when you're out and about, and your child will have no problem if she's used to straw cups.
