5 Best Sippy Cup Brands to Make a Happy, Independent Toddler

Written by Jennifer Traynor

Looking for a good sippy cup for your little one? We’ve got you covered in this PLN round-up of great cups from five different brands.

One of many important milestones in a baby’s life is learning to eat and drink on their own. When it comes to your child drinking water or milk independently a reliable sippy cup is essential. Ideally, parents will want to get their kids a cup they can easily hold and drink from, that doesn’t leak and can be convenient when on-the-go.

If you are in the market for buying your little one a new sippy cup here are some options to consider:

Playtex Sipsters: These cups come in different sizes and with a spout or straw. You can select from Stage 1: soft spout, 6-ounce cup; Stage 2: spout or straw, 9-ounce cup; Stage 3: straw, spout or spoutless top, 9-ounce cup; Stage 4: sport spout, 12-ounce cup.

Tommee Tippee Sippee Cup: These 10-ounce cups are easy to grip and have a soft, non-spill spout.

The First Years Take and Toss Sippy Cups: These are durable enough to be washed and used over again, but also affordable enough that you can discard them if you are travelling. These valve-free cups come with a snap-on cap to prevent spills.

Wow Cup: This 9-ounce cup features a 360-degree, spill-proof drinking edge. Makes for a good transition from spout cups to a regular cup.

Munchkin Miracle 360-degree Training Cup: This cup also features a 360-degree drinking edge. The dentist recommended spoutless design automatically seals when your toddler stops drinking to help avoid spills. The 7-ounce cup comes with handles. Also available in a 10-ounce cup without handles.

You might have to try more than one sippy cup before you find the right one for your child, but once you do your little one will be on their way to drinking and eating with little to no help. Next step: actually keeping food on their plates instead of all over the table or floor.
