I've heard hard top sippies effect their teeth or whatever.. like the same effect as thumb sucking.
I've heard soft top sippies are basically bottles but with a different shape.
I don't know what's better.. I guess all as their pros and cons.. but what do you use?

We started with soft spout sippies and then moved on to hard spout sippies. I saw the soft spout sippies as a transitioning tool. I think the hard spout sippies can be over-used and cause problems, but by around 18 months you should be able to give them a regular non-sippy cup at least some of the time. You can also make rules about when and where sippies are used to avoid having your child carrying it around all the time. We made a spot in the kitchen where our little ones were allowed to use their sippies in between meals, but they weren't allowed to drag them all over the house. They also had to practice treating the sippies the same as they would a regular cup so when we transitioned to those they didn't think it was ok to drop them. I think like most things, moderation of use is a big factor.

I've tried them all & the best one I have found is made by NUBY. They have a soft spout and my DS likes them the best. Now they come with a cap to prevent spills when you go out. He will actually ask for that one if I give him a different one. He is 3 1/2 & I still use them to prevent spillage when we go out in the car or shopping or even for in the den.
