A sippy cup is one of those baby and toddler feeding items that you want to get right. If not you just know you’ll end up with a diaper bag dripping with spilled milk or some other sticky liquid.
The Dr. Brown cups are wonderful! They come in two age groups: cups for ages 6 months and older have a flexible spout and those for ages nine months and older have a hard plastic spout. Both versions come with a lid, but even without the lid they don’t spill because they are only activated by the child sucking on them.
My daughter figured out the soft spout cup quickly and with the (removable) handles she can give herself a drink whenever the cup is present. This is my favorite sippy cup by far. (And with three kids we’ve tried quite a few!) I love that the soft spout is something even a 6 month old can figure out. And the fact that it doesn’t spill makes is a winner in my book. These cups are also dishwasher safe.
My one complaint with these cups is that the soft spout of my daughter’s cup has turned a slight orange tinted color. Granted she does eat plenty of orange colored food (squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.), but I wish that orange color would wash off.
