Pediatricians recommend introducing a sippy cup as early as 6 months, but the decision between a cup with a spout or straw can be a confusing one. The American Dental Association warns against valve-style spouts because they encourage sucking instead of sipping, which is linked to more cavities. The alternative is a straw, which is notoriously leaky. Enter the Munchkin Miracle 360° Trainer Cup, which solves the debate by eliminating spouts, straws—and spills.

What We Love

  • As soon as you stop drinking, the cup magically seals shut (read: no spills) and the handles are easy for even the littlest hands to hold (as young as 6 months!)
  • The dentist-approved design teaches little ones to drink from the rim and supports normal muscle development in a child’s mouth
  • No worries about having to wean your child off the sippy cup eventually; this trainer cup makes the transition seamless


The idea of giving an actual cup to a baby sounds crazy, but the dental benefits and no-spill design actually make this a no-brainer.
