Hi mamas and papas, Melissa here! Most parents struggle with teaching their tots to drink out of cups without spilling. Thus, the invention of sippy cups, which should make this transition easier. But not all sippy cups are alike and some will work better than others for your child. Generally, you’re looking for something that’s easy for baby to hold onto, safe for them to drink from, and simple to clean. So, with all that said, here’s a list of my top 5 sippy cups.
Munchkin Latch Transition Cup
Safe for babies from four months old and onwards, the Munchkin Latch Transition sippy cup has a silicone mouthpiece that is gentle enough for the tiniest of mouths. The cup has two removable handles that make it easy for baby to hold and drink from independally. The Anti-Colic valve provides peace of mind for mom and baby, reducing bubbles and gas. This cup is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. Order it here.
Nuk Everlast Straw Sippy Cup
The Nuk Everlast Sippy Cup is perfect if you’re looking for a cup with a straw. It’s made of durable plastic and silicone, making it spill-proof and perfect for on-the-go situations. The lid locks into place to make sure that baby stays accident-free. The mouthpiece also creates a safe drinking experience, making sure that your baby doesn’t gulp down too much at once. Gripping the cup won’t be a problem for baby’s little hands because this BPA-free cup is designed with an ergonomic shape that’s easy to hold. This cup is available in green, blue, and pink!

Available in multiple color combinations, the Munchkin Miracle Sippy Cups are classic in the sippy cup world! I love the 360 degree design because it wipes out the possibility of spills. These cups are BPA free, dishwasher safe and their simple design makes them easy to clean. The one linked to from here is for one year olds and above, but you can order a version of this cup that has handles for smaller children here, and this one’s also available in multiple color options!
