Unsuccessful Sippy Cups
For the last couple months, I feel like we have tried every sippy cup out there. I have a friend who recommended the Stages cup by Nuby. Caroline did okay with it. I liked that it had three different stages with handles and different sized nipples/ flow rates. I think I started this with Caroline too early, as she got super frustrated with it and started to just throw it around instead of attempting to use it. In fact, we didn’t get to try it much when she became interested in drinking from a cup because Daddy had lost it in his car. Imagine that 😉 But the functionality behind it was great. I think if Daddy found the cup again, Caroline would love it now that she’s a little older.
Next, I tried the Dr. Brown’s Sippy cup. I thought this would be the best one, as Caroline did so well with the Dr. Brown bottles. They were perfect for gas reduction and reflux. But, to no avail, she didn’t take to this sippy cup in the slightest. If she tipped it at all to drink from, like she would a bottle, it spilled all over the place. She couldn’t figure out how to sip from that nipple and ultimately, it was
hopeless useless. So, we moved on.
I had a Munchkin sip cup we had been gifted. I couldn’t even get it to work and I’m an adult- so I tossed that piece of junky plastic in the trash. I was so incredibly frustrated I didn’t know where to turn. Thankfully, we were very lucky to be allowed to become a Nuby Parent Blogger!!! This was an extreme honor and very exciting for us. With this, I get to try out a few of their products and share my thoughts with you (like I’m doing here). So, it was PERFECT Timing when we were sent this awesome set of cups.
We were given the cups in exchange for an honest review with opinions of our own.)
Success in a Sippy
Our first cup that we tried out came as a two pack. It has so many neat features that make it the most versatile and successful sippy cup that we have used yet! We are excited to share the features of the 360° SipperTM. It’s great to start using at 6 months old and on. It can hold ups to 10 ounces (or 300ml). This is great, I know that I can use it while we try to wean Caroline off of the formula and on to whole milk.
What we LOVE about it is, Caroline can drink from it at any angle and it won’t spill! She can toss it back like a bottle without pouring it all over her face. She can sip from it while sitting, standing and running. Yes, I have watched her do every one of those actions!
Caroline loves drinking through a straw. This cup is P-E-R-F-E-C-T for this, as it has a little weight on the end of the flexible straw that keeps it in the water/liquid no matter which angle the cup is held at. If she holds it upside down and the water flows to the top of the cup, the weight pulls the end of the flexible straw into the water, so she can drink successfully still! This helps create a continuous flow. It’s awesome. She doesn’t get so frustrated with this cup like she did the prior ones.
It has a soft silicone Touch-FloTM spout that is gentle on their young gums and teeth. It requires little work to get the actual drink to start flowing through the straw. This is a great feature when trying to transition from a bottle to a cup. Plus, every mama is happy to have baby gear that is BPA Free!! Win-Win!
You can find yours at your local Babies R Us! Check with your local stores for it’s availability as it is just being released recently. This is something you won’t want to miss out on.
We also received the 360 degree Wonder CupTM with 3D Grip. It’s appropriate for children 12+ months. Like the 360 SipperTm it can hold up to 10 ounces or 300 ml. Similar to the prior cup, it allows a full 360 degrees of sipping from anywhere on the cup.
What makes this cup unique, is the Silicone rim insert. It is designed to prevent the cup from spilling and to be gentle on the gums and teeth in your child’s mouth. The rim is made of the No-SpillTM soft and pressure sensitive Touch- Flo silicone. The cup can help regulate fluid intake as your child drinks from it. When your child stops drinking, the silicone rim seals and prevents any future leaks. Nuby also keeps their standards high with another BPA free cup!
Caroline loves the 3D grip on this cup. It’s the perfect size for her small growing hands. She loves carrying around her green Monkey cup. I don’t fret when she does either. Nuby’s spill free technology is really helping out my OCD and anxiety at ease with a toddler who is constantly on the Go and getting into EVERYTHING!
This cup will be coming soon to a Babies R Us near you. So, keep your eyes peeled and feel free to let me know in the comments below when you see one hit the shelves in your hometown.
Both of these Nuby cups have made my life as a mama even easier! It’s the small things that help make the day go smoothly. These are great items to put on your baby registry! Don’t miss out on these products.
I’d like to thank Nuby again for this opportunity to work together and share our honest thoughts on these products with you!
