What's a good sippy cup for bottle weaning?

I'm trying to wean my 11mo ds off of his bottle. We've bought the Nuby brand sippy cups, but he always chews a hole in the top. We've tried the basic Playtex and hourglass shaped Gerber ones, but the top is just too hard for him.

Any suggestions for a good starter cup (that doesn't cost a fortune)?

  • we like the gerber soft spout ones and the nuby ones. I like the nuby ones because they are cheap.. a little over a buck.. and the speed flow is controlled by the baby. We are still having issues with the twins and sippy cups.. but those are the two I have found they use the best without choking on the water!

  • I think Tupperware ones are the best, and there lids used them both on Cody and Georgia and they were both off the bottle at 11 mths old and I did not wean I just took it away
