  • I nuse the Gerber ones that have screw on tops. They are the only ones that I found that the tops didn't pop off of when they were thrown!

  • Skip the sippy cup and go straight to a straw. It removes the dependence on a nipple...my son took to the straw cup so fast and I'm really glad I never gave him a sippy. It was one less thing that I will have to take away some day.

    yeah - but some day you have to take away the straw.

  • Nuk makes a cup with a straw. It's great. There is also one called Tossables that work well. The good part about this is that you can use a regular cup with a straw at a restaurant (with your help of course) if you forget your cup at home. It's just more convenient.

    Sure, some day I'll have to take away a straw...that's true, but sippy cups can be taken to bed like a bottle which creates a different sort of dependence.
