Hi Everyone,
I have a 12 month old. I wanted to find out what brand/type of sippy cup worked best in your family.
We have a number of different brands, but each kind seems to have a quirk- drips, leaks, nipple/hole is too easy too pull out.
Let me know what worked for you!

What can I do next?

We love Nuby (and they are BPA free)! We actually use the no-spill straw cup rather than the sippy. My daughter prefers it and it was easier for her to learn to drink from the straw than the sippy. If you want a sippy though, Playtex makes the best no-spill design.

Well I always had the problem with either them leaking or having my son blow into them and make the little seal pieces pop out and then having a big mess! Trust me, I went through alot of different ones till I found one that worked. When they are younger and need a handle I suggest Advent brand:
For the older ones, I suggest The first years:
I LOVE these cups!!! They have no parts, Just a cup and a lid. No leaking and easy cleaning too.

The best cups I've found and love are the Nascar cups with the car as the lid. I've used every kind of cup there is, and it never leaks! I got them at Baby's R Us. I know they have other characters,, not just Nascar.

I like the soft top Nuby cups. They can still leak, but as long as you don't intentionally poke holes in the top, they last a good while.

My son does well with the Playtex cups. He's rough on them and they don't leak. They're BPA free too.

Oh how I HATE leaking sippy cups-drives me nuts! :) And we have tried them all. The best I have found for no leaks and stoppers that don't fall out when the cup is dropped is the Playtex. They are easy to clean, I take them apart and everything goes in the dishwasher and comes out like new. The Gerber cups have the hard stopper, "leak-proof" thing and if one of the kids dropped it on our tile or hard woods it would pop out of the hole and then the next thing I knew I had drink trails all over the house or car or couch etc. because I didn't know it was leaking. The Avent sippy's would leak if you don't get the lid and the rubber part on just so overall a real pain plus you had 3 seperate lid parts to clean with these. Anyway, sorry for the book but I truly think that Playtex is the best imo. HTH.

I too use the gerber fun grips. They are awesome! I just put them in the dishwasher to clean. They come in packs of 2 for $7, and they always have coupons for $1 off.

gerber: fun grips to start (smaller) color changer for older toddler. The stopper is a pain to clean wash esp w/ milk but they never leak and kiddos can't open them.
put them in dishwasher bottle/nipple basket to clean fully
