I had been trying to find a good to-go cup for Kiggster when we give her milk but it seems a lot of cups trap milk into the little crevices or inside the tiny straws and cause mold to grow or make the cup smell funny. So I wanted a cup that didn't have a straw, was no spill, and relatively easy to clean. That's when I got a Nuby No Spill Sport Sipper for review.
What I liked was that the cup did not utilize an inside straw but is more of a sports bottle type design. Here is what Nuby says about their No-Spill Sport Sipper:
No matter what recreational activity your child is engaged in, the No-Spill™ Sport Sipper by Nûby™ is perfect for parents and children on the go! Why? Because Nûby™ developed the Sport Sipper with an innovative, ergonomic shape with easy grips that ensures a comfortable and secure grasp for you child. Also included is the unique soft silicone straw with a built-in valve; it opens with sucking action and closes when not in use.
What the description didn't say was that it also came with a clear cap to keep the sipper from getting dirty between uses. I did like that it came with a cap, helps keep the sipper from also leaking by keeping that nozzle upright rather than getting bent while in the diaper bag, car, or lunch bag! Kiggster had to get used to drinking from the sipper in the beginning because she was used to the straw cups where she would hold it upright and she could drink from it with no problem but with the sippers, she had to tilt it so the liquids flowed up to the straw-like sipper and then drink from it in order to get any liquids. The cup was really easy for her to hold and doesn't slip easily from her little hands with the silicone textured grips. It has been easier to clean than other cups because it does not have all the little parts to clean. I did wish there was a way to attach the lid to the cup in between uses so it's not so easy for me to misplace or for my daughter to run off with it and hide it.
Though this cup has been great on the go and at home and I've used it for both water and milk so far with no problems. I can also see how this would help a child go from a baby bottle to a cup, however, since Kiggster never took to a bottle, I don't have personal experience with that.
The Nuby No-Spill 10oz Sport Sipper can be purchased at Amazon for $3.99. There are a variety of colors but the color you receive will vary.
