I have 9 weeks untill my little bundle of joy comes in to this world. Slowly i am trying to get things ready for her. I was cleaning out a cupbared in my kitchen to make room for bottles and i found a whole bunch of sippy cups that my son who is now 5 used when he was younger. I was wondering if it's ok to pass sippy cups down from child to child. If not why? I dont have a problem buying new ones but i am also trying to save money to any advice would be great thanks

You might want to check into the research on BPA.  A lot of older cups had it.  Other than that I don't see why not!

I personally think its okay, I do it now...just as long as you clean it out really good and sanitize it

 I don't see a problem. However, that whole BPA thing came out, so you may want to check THAT out, and I THINK that unless you like, boil them, they should be safe.

Reuse them.  Just wash them really well maybe with a little bleach.

i've never heard not to reuse them. if anything i'd probably just check the valves to make sure it still prevents them from leaking, but you use the same cups the others in your house do, same plates bowls etc...my 5 month old uses the same baby spoons, and bowls that his almost 4 yr old sister used. i read a lot of parenting mags, web sites etc...and i've never seen anything saying not to reuse kitchen ware among children. as long as it is clean, sanitary and still works properly it should not be an issue. i play on reusing my daughters for my son here in a few months.
