  • i agree with pp.....my son always shoved the tops through the soft ones. but keep in mind, it may take your LO a lil longer to get used to this, bc they're so different from bottles. but they'll take 'em cuz they want whats inside lol

  • My recommendation would be to just give her a regular cup. It works well for my 19 month old, though she isn't allowed to have them and walk around the house. She has to be in her high chair or booster. They learn pretty quickly not to spill when they get spilled on.

    Otherwise.... maybe you could tape the lids on with duct tape or something? I don't know, other than that; DD only gets sippy cups for long car trips.

    Or just another thought... would she drink from one with a hard lid if it has a straw?

  • Depends on the age of the child. The hard top cups aren't good for their teeth. How old is your child?
