Somewhere between baby bottles and glasses, there's the sippy cup. A straw sippy is recommended over a valve one by the American Dental Association because it teaches baby to sip rather than suck and is better at cavity prevention. Here's the rub, though: Valves prevent leaks. We searched far and wide and found a sippy that put a valve in a straw.
WHAT WE LOVE
- Think straws are only for big kids? This sippy can be used for babies as young as 4 months old
- The straw valve opens as soon as baby puts his or her mouth to the spout, so it’s easy to take a sip
- The hinged cap creates a leak-proof seal
- Use it with or without the handles, depending on what baby’s ready for. Plus, all the parts are dishwasher-safe
Recommended by dentists? Check. Leak-proof for parents? Check. Get this cup in baby’s hands—with or without the handles.
