none, I am sorry I ever bother with them, better to go straight to a regular cup -----more time but less mess in the long run.

gerber cups are good and so are playtex and bornfree. make sure they stay upright when you put them in your bag like in the side pocket. also maybe you should limit the places where your little drinks instead of everywhere in the house. keep eating and drinking limited to the kitchen. my kids (6, 5 and 2) do not bring drinks or food in the living room unless we do an indoor picnic (on a blanket). they also keep their toys in the designated area. it takes a little time to teach that but they can and will learn, think about it children need boundaries and limits with certain things. oh yeah the ones with straws work great.

I think after awhile almost all sippies end up leaking. The valve gets worn and is not good anymore. What you may want to do is have sippies at the table. This will also help with transitioning to the cup. I do day care and would have stuff EVERYWHERE if I allowed everyone to carry the sippies around. While they are here we do 2 meals and 2 snacks throughout our day I find that giving sippies at those times they really don't need it inbetween. If we have been running around or outside and it is hot then when we get done I offer everyone a drink. Sometimes kids will suck on the sippy just like they suck on the bottle, which can lead to rotten teeth if the liquid is not water. It also creates a bad habit and then makes it hard to get rid of the sippy cups.
