What brand of sippy cup do you use for your child?

What brand of sippy cups did you use with your child? Which did you like or not like? We have the Avent, which my son has only used once. We also tried one of the Nuby sippy cups for 6+ months. I don't like th Nuby because when he starts to drink out of it the breastmilk/water comes out so fast it soaks him. Just looking on feedback as to what might be best.

  • I really like the playtex cups. They are the only ones I've found that don't leak when he shakes it.

  • i like gerber (they are recommended for either 3 or 6 months +). They do not leak, the lid aligns itself, and the stopper comes out very easily. It is a very sturdy cup and is very easy to clean. My son has no problem drinking out of them (they are the first sippy cup he was able to master- we tried about 4 different kinds, including hte Nuby- definately the worst). I highly recommend this sippy cup- dishwasher safe and can withstand being thrown all over the house.

  • Personally I really like the nuby. My son (7 months) uses the ones with the sippy looking spout that is on the side however is made of the silicone like a nipple is. He can grasp the handles, control his flow, and it's small enough to carry anywhere (not too heavy). Other than that, we've used Avent bottles with the handles. Don't like the sippy's too much. And we like the gerber, however he sometimes doesn't like the sippy part because he tries to bite on it. He's been using sippy's since 3 months.

  • Mine wouldn't use a sippy for the longest time - we tried TONS of different ones, then took to it overnight and would drink out of any or all of them! What I had to do is pull out the valves and get her used to drinking out of a sippy, then I put it back in when she got used to it and learned that she can stand there and dump it out.

    There's one that you can get at walmart and target that is "dr browns." it's not cute or nothing, but its the first one she really took to and the top is more rubbery..like a nipple.

  • I'm pretty sure it was by gerber, but we used a sippy cup with handles that had a convertible where you could use either a bottle nipple or soft sippy cup nipple. it was fairly spill proof, had a soft spout, and was easy for daughter to drink from because the handles were easy to hold. best of all, the interchanging bottle nipple to sippy cup meant she didn't have to get used to holding a new cup for the transition from bottle to sippy

  • The gerber insolated cups, I believe their like 9 or 10oz. they really keep stuff cold and she's dropped the cup before at home and nothing spilled and its happened alot.
