sippy cups

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

sippy cups

Postby Spunkey » 09 Mar 2013, 12:15

My ds is almost 14 months old and is able to drink from an open cup (though still quite messy, since he is very unconcerned about being wet). During meals we typically give him an open cup, and he looooves to drink his water. When he is playing or I am busy and he asks for water we give him a sippy cup to decrease the mess. Until about a week ago he had been using soft spouted sippy cups and did just fine. However, he chewed through the spouts, so we got some hard spouted cups. Now, if he is given one of those cups, he will either take a small sip or not even try at all, then toss it on the floor and ask to nurse, instead. Any suggestions on getting him to actually use the sippy cup?

Maybe try a few different cups?

Can you get Suavinex products there? These are great http://www.suavinex.com/en/product/feed ... 360ml.html and my two use them all the time. The spout is hard so chewing isn't a problem. It holds plenty of water and the spout thing is very easy to manage for little ones. Mine have had them since about 12 months.

Sorry my feedback may not be helpful - but I found that sippy cups were not popular with either kid, but straw ones work well.

These are the ones we use - http://www.bros.com.my/collection.asp?c ... keyword=#1

Though something with handles may be better.

I've just given up on tippy/sippy cups and have open cup at meals, and straw cups as his always-accessible cup plus out-and-about cup. He just never seemed to get much water out of a sippy cup.

Last night I tried drinking out of his sippy cup- no wonder he dislikes it! I could barely get any water out! So, looks like we will be looking for something else!

Also, as far as straw cups go, has anyone had trouble with their kids chewing through the straw?

Not yet, but I've only had them a week or so. He is chewing on then less and less now he's realised what they are for.

No, not really - but they get dirty after a while and need replacing eventually. The brand we have also sell spare straws which is handy.
