With so many sippy cups to choose from, how are you supposed to know which one to try first? Just like with bottles and pacifiers, it may take some trial and error to find the right fit for your child. But here’s a nice starting point: 6 of our favorite sippy cups and why many love them too.
1. BEST FOR GROWING TEETH: Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup, $6.00
The Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup has a dentist recommended spoutless design; plus because it’s straw-less, it’s super simple to clean. Once your kiddo gets the hang of the Munchkin Miracle 360, you’ll be so relieved to never wash out another straw.
2. BEST 2-IN-1 SIPPY: Oxo Tot Transitions Soft Spout Sippy Cup, $9.99
You certainly get your money’s worth with the OXO Tot Transition cup, which has two interchangeable tops. It comes out of the box with a sippy spout for your baby, and once your he’s ready, it turns into a cleverly designed training cup.
3. BEST FIRST STRAW CUP: Zo-li Bot Sippy Straw Cup $11.99
The Zo-li Bot has a weighted straw, which means your little one can drink from this cup at any angle. So if he's ready for a sippy cup but still wants to tip it back like a bottle, this may be the one for you.
