Which sippy cups are best?

My son is 19 months and has bit holes in the rubber tops of his cups. We still give him milk in bottles but he has done the same with them. What cups should I buy that are durable and in-expensive?

  • The ones that worked for us (we have a 20m old and the SAME problem!) are either the really cheap Nuby cups (they're like $1 at walmart and have a hard spout) or any of the Playtex line.

  • I like the gerber cups with the hard top. They work really well. I had one child that would not use a sippy cup and we had to teach him to use a straw or just drink from the cup like we would.

    It is always a possibilty. They don't have to have a sippy cup.

  • Really, it's whichever ones your little one will use. My DD likes the Gerber sippy cups.

  • My son is the same way! We bought a Gerber brand sippy cup, and the top is hard plastic with a valve he cant bite through. Plus it is insulated and has frogs on it (which he loves)!

  • I personally like the Playtex or Gerber line. They don't seem to leak as bad!!

  • I will only use Gerber or Nuby, the nuby's have silicone though. The gerber ones are the only ones that have been truly leak free.
