About sippy cups

Sippy cups come in a huge variety of styles and are also designed for different age groups or developmental stages. It can, however, be a bit of a challenge to find the right sippy cup for your little one – many families try multiple types of sippy cups before finding the one their child will happily take. Sometimes that preferred style of sippy cup will change with your child’s development, too.

While there might be some trial and error involved, hopefully considering the following things will help make it easier to get the right sippy cup for your child.

What to look for in a sippy cup

  • Age range: As mentioned above, sippy cups are usually designed for a particular age.
  • Adjustable flow: Being able to adjust the flow to suit your child can be really important, especially if you’re looking for a sippy cup for a baby or young toddler.
  • Grippable handles: When choosing a sippy cup, most parents want to find something their child can use on their own, so check if your baby or toddler can grasp and hold their handles themselves.
  • “Drip-free” design: Less mess is always a plus! Look for sippy cups that claim to be drip or spill-proof.
  • Spout vs straw: Toddlers can have a strong preference between using a spout or sucking through a straw – if they like one or the other, you might want to stick with it.
  • Easy to clean: You want a sippy cup that can be completely pulled apart to clean, otherwise the trapped moisture can promote mould growth … and nobody wants their little one drinking that!

Transitional sippy cups

One way to introduce a sippy cup, especially for a bottle fed bub, is to start with a transitional sippy cup. Transitional sippy cups can be used with a bottle teat, as well as with either a spout or straw. They often have removable handles as well, so they function just like a regular baby bottle initially, and then transform into a proper sippy cup for your older baby or toddler.

To sippy cup or not to sippy cup

While sippy cups are generally easier to use when you’re on the go – and are also less likely to be spilled – you can introduce a regular cup to your baby and skip the sippy cup altogether. It’s not a necessary developmental stage, but more of a convenience. So if you’re happy to teach your tot to use a regular cup straight from bottle or breast, then go right ahead!
