  • Uh I could see that. But Its harder to learn to use. If you are only giving the chile milk and water, either is fine. But I guess it depends on what age group the child is. (if the know how to suck from a straw) and what you put in it. But I think the straw ones would end up being the same because its not a long straw that will pass their teeth. Maybe just the front ones, and whatever liquid will still get all the other teeth. so.. I would assume they are equal.

  • OP...Thanks. I guess I am out of luck. My son is a monster when it comes to brushing his teeth. I of course always do it but I thought I could help the cause a little...guess not.

  • Hi! I have a 12 month old who hates sippy cups never liked drinking from the we started trying around 9 months but he wouls always fuss so we moved on to the straw sippy cups and he LOVES them. I am not sure about the teeth that is a great question and I would like to know too. Good luck :)

  • Teeth aside (there won't be a problem with teeth no matter what they drink from if they are brushed properly)...the straw helps develop different oral motor muscles. (per our OT and speech therapist)
