Can someone recommend a sippy cup? I have some but haven't really caught his attention :P

I agree with the others that posted the "Nuby". They seem to be the best for little hands to hold on to and get liquid from. An added bonus is they offer some with lids which is nice to have when you travel or are storing it in the fridge.

I agree with Amanda, I would recommend Nuby cups by Tommey Tippe. They are lovely, they do different types for different stages. I have even weaned by 13 month old son off a bottle with one, as the teat is soft. They have them at most supermarkets. They never did this type, when I had my 4.5 year old, but would recommend these to any one.

Hello Darcy - I guess a sippy cup is another word for feeding cup? If so you should try the one from AVENT - if you can find that brand.

My kids were never interested in feeding cups, though :-) they`d rather drink out of a real cup :-)

My daughter won't drink out of one, she drinks out of cups or like mum a drink bottle with the nozzle end thingie, and if its only water especially in summer who cares if they spill.

Those easy colored disposable ones work great! You can find them in a pack of four (with lids) for about 2 bucks!! They last a long time if you decide not do dispose of them immediately. They are great for picnics, too.

I wouldn;t go for getting too fancy and spending a wehole bunch of money on them at first. Your child will get used to them once they get the hang of the whole swallowing concept.

I have found that the cups with straws and flip lids tend to get lost easily as well as clogged with what ever drink you chose to feed your child, (God help your sense of smell if you forget one in the car and find it a week later with a science project growing inside) and some replacement parts are difficult to find. good luck to you and your child!!

I also bought the Nuby for my daughter and am really happy with them . She gave up her bottle at 12 months and only uses the Nuby sippy cup. I would recommend them to anyone.

My vote is for the Avent - it all comes apart to make it easy to clean. I hate sippy cups with built-in valves because they are so hard to clean. And Playtex for toddlers is great too.

If you want one that does not leak, the first years, playtex or gerbers are good.  Sometimes it's not so much the cup but if they can't suck the fluid out thay don't have to much interest in them.  I started teaching my son who had trouble with this by putting a straw into my glass of water with my finger on the top and then putting it into his mouth and he eventually leanred to suck the liquid out of it.

My daughters really liked the less expensive NUBY ones too.  My latest addition however did not, & prefered the AVENT.

I started off with a Heinz one but my little boy wouldn't have a bar of it. I saw a friend of mine's child with a Nuby one I decided to get one of those....I got a big one with
inter-changeable nozzles and that worked a treat. He's 9 months old now and loves them.

I agree with Amanda the Nuby brands are good. That's what my daughter uses and she likes them alot.

To start my boy off I bought the cheap Nuby brand because they had the large soft sippy part.  Soon though I switched to Gerber brand with the soft suction part.  Ours are blue and green and have a rocket and car I think.  I switched then to the hard suction cups from Gerber a little later.  He is 22 months old and I still love the Gerber brand cups!!!!

My children are older now, but i had one who wouldn't take a sippy cup. I went straight to teaching how to drink out of a regular cup. A couple spills, and he learned very quickly what to do with the cup.

Have you tried a Klean Kanteen?  They come with Avent sippy adaptors.  They are stainless steel and so no BPAs!  Also they come in lots of colours...I have one too.  You can find them at Sporting Life at Sherway Gardens...that is the best place to go.

I also started my daughter out with a "nuby". She took to it really well. It took forever for her to hold her own bottle. So I put the sippy cup, empty, out on the walker or highchair when she was playing and once she started trying to put it to her mouth I filled it with milk or juice and she did fine.

hi mothercare do a really good 1 which i bought in a close replacement of 1 that boots sold for many years by maws it doesnt have handles but its just the right size to hold in thier hands and has a screw on and off lid and has a soft spout and great if they need drinks in the night as it has the vent system in it so only will flow when they suck on it and the other 1 that worked great for us when our younger son got older was the tommee tippee one this does have handles and has a pull on and off lid but is a easy flow so unless the spout is pushed down the liquid will come out

Avent do wonderful sippy cups. the tip is a soft rubber and only allows liquid to flow through when the baby bites onto it and sucks.  my daughter loves it. its great because they can control the flow of liquid.

We really liked the Avent and Gerber sippy cups when the boys were first learning to use them. When they reached the older toddler stage we switched to playtex.

The "nuby" brand is really good... if you havn't tried it yet. The tip feels more like a bottle and my daughter took to it a lot easier than the hard plastc sippy cups. I know they have em at walmart. Hope this helps!
