  • Is it a pain to clean it? I bought some strw sippies for my toddlers and I hated cleaning and reassmbling them so much I went back to sippies with built in valves.

  • Congratulations! It's a big accomplishment. Our nuby sippy cup's top broke and I was trying to get him to use the same munckin one's but he'd just look at me and sign water. So I resorted to a foogoo sippy cup. Drinking from a straw helps exercise their cheek muscles for speech. WTG MOM!

  • its not a pain cause its a built in valve with no lid. it sometimes leaks when there is liquid at the very tip but its only a few drops then it stops. there only thing that comes off is the straw inside. i love it i just cleaned 2 by hand and it took me maybe 5 mins.
