  • i know it drives me crazy they might as well just use regular cups because if they spill they will just make the same mess as the sippy cups lol

  • I hate them too and my toddler ate the plastic rubbery ones that they make the nubby or something like that... I think they get away with calling leak proof cause they don't spill all over at one time. YEA I HATE THE FACT THAT THEY LEAK ALL OVER.

  • Ours don't leak too bad. I'm not sure what brand they are, but we have a few Dora cups and a few Princess cups. What I hated were the straw cups, because while it's a great idea and they don't leak........they just don't work out well. God forbid you ever put milk in them and it gets old (which always happens here, because she is always stashing her cups)..THEY STINK! No amount of soaking of cleaning would get the smell out. They also smell like rubber from the get-go, so her water always tasted weird. Who knows what would happen if juice were to be put in them. YUCK! Moms, save your money and don't buy the insulated straw cups!

    Oh, I just checked the brand and they are Learning Curve, Playtex and maybe try one of those brands.

  • That used to drive me crazy. Like every third cup I bought would leak! I'm so glad I'm past that. I only used them for my first. My younger 2 went right to regular cups.

  • We had a few Advent ones that didn't leak but every other cup we tried didn't spill but sure did leak. The kids would have great time shaking the cup and splashing water all over.

  • I will take the leak any day. When my first two kids were young, you just cleaned it up. Then, with my 3rd, the miraculous "no spill" cup. If my grand daughter puts it down and it leaks - fine. It doesn't spill unless I don't put the baffle in correctly.
