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. Because, you know, kids don't come with a manual unfortunately, and what may have worked with your first, might not work with subsequent babies.
But worry not, because our team has put in years of testing (or just being moms) and here are the ones they recommend.
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.
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 they are ready, it turns into a cleverly designed training cup.
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.
Whether you live where it's warm year round (we're jealous) or you prefer stainless steel to plastic, thinkbaby's lightweight Sippy of Steel is perfect for parents who are looking for an alternative to plastic or just want to keep their babe's water nice and cold.
We love Re-Play for their sustainable line of kid's tableware made from recycled materials. The Soft Spout Cup features a leak resistant, easy to clean silicone spout, perfect for infants and toddlers alike. Plus, you can't beat that price!
The 3-in-1 cup from Silikids can be used with a silicone sippy top for little ones or as a big kid cup for your older child. But it really shines when used with the straw top because it's perfect for homemade smoothies. The straw is extra wide and the top is made out of soft silicone, making it simple to clean.
Not only is this sippy cup a great transition option for newborns to older babies, but we love the dual spout with a wide opening for easy sipping. The cup comes with an extra nipple and boasts grippable non-slip handles so your baby will have no issues holding her own!
If your baby is transitioning to self-feeding and drinking, this set of two sippy cups is the perfect choice. The soft silicone no-spill spout will prevent water (or juice, or milk, or any mystery liquid!) from getting on any of your flooring or furniture. Plus, the specially created spout promotes healthy oral progression and support.
Pura Kiki's straw bottle is totally free of plastic and can easily grow with your baby by transitioning from infant bottle to sippy cup to sports bottle. We love the soft silicone travel cover (which you can switch colors, btw!), and the fact that this bottle is dishwasher-safe and free of BPA, BPS, EA, PVC, and phthalates.
CamelBak is known for its bottles and sippies, so it's no surprise that it made our list. The Bite Valve with stem tube and shut off valve make biting and drinking simple for younger kids without a single spill. Plus, it's free of BPA, BPS, and BPF.
We love that the Green Sprouts' glass sippy cup helps natural oral development while staying free from plastic and harmful chemicals. Liquids only touch glass and silicone, and the cup comes in a shock-absorbing, non-slip base that will keep the cup safe.
If you've got a biter on your hands, they've met their match with this tough-to-destroy sippy cup by NUK. This cup has a bite-resistant spout, plus its Seal Zone technology and innovative hourglass shape stop spills and drips. Bonus: It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe, so you can keep this guy around for a while!
If your baby is known to get rowdy, these Take & Toss sippy cups by The First Years are a great choice. Coming in a pack of four or more, these sippy cups are super cheap, so you won't feel too bad if you misplace one. Even at their low price, the cups are durable, valve-free and spill-free.
