Whether you're looking to help the environment or reduce your use of plastics, stainless steel water bottles are a great solution for keeping your little ones hydrated all year long—and especially during a heat wave!
Our picks will keep your kiddos cool and are perfectly sized for little hands. Shop our favorites below!
1. Pura Kiki
This sleek, insulated stainless steel bottle is more than just a water bottle. With an easy switch of the top, you can change out the straw for a nipple, silicone spout, sports top, and more, making it the perfect bottle to grow with your little one.
2. Hydro Flask
Hydro Flask makes awesome adult water bottles, so we're not surprised that their kid version also hits it out of the park. Features we love here include double wall vacuum insulation (translation: put ice in in the morning, and you'll still have ice in the afternoon), an easy-to-drink (and clean) top, a silicone bottom to prevent dings, and a bottle that's just the right size for little hands.
3. Eco Vessel
Eco Vessel began with the goal of replacing wasteful, single-use bottles with insulated stainless steel ones, a message we can definitely get behind. Their straw bottle features a flip spout for no-tilt drinking, a sturdy design, and a great selection of fun patterns + designs.
The 'big bite valve' is our favorite feature of this bottle—it's simple for even the youngest toddlers to master, prevents spills, and is easily replaceable. We also love that everything is top-rack dishwasher safe and easy to clean, and that this bottle keeps liquids cool for hours.
If you're worried about spilling, don't be with this stainless bottle. It features an 'autospout' lid with a straw and a spill-proof valve, perfect for even the messiest of little drinkers 😄 It keeps liquids cool for up to 14 hours and is perfectly sized to fit in most cup holders.
6. Liberty Bottleworks
The simple, beautiful art on these water bottles really make them stand out—but their style doesn't compromise their function. Made from partially recycled aluminum (which we realize isn't stainless steel, but they're a great other non-plastic option so we wanted to include them anyway!), they're perfect for splash-free drinking. They're also made 100% in the USA.
7. Klean Kanteen
More of a traditional water bottle style, this stainless option works well for older toddlers + little kids as it's not leak-proof. We really like the chip-resistant powder coat finish (available in either a shiny finish or an awesome matte option) as well as the wide, easy-to-fill opening.
8. Skip Hop
We 💜all things Skip Hop, especially this stainless steel bottle. The silicone sleeve keeps the bottle safe in the grip of little hands, and the flexible straw is easy to clean. And your little one will love choosing the adorable animal design that's just the right match!
