OMFG— I am so happy to finally be writing this post because it means drumroll please…………
WE FOUND A STRAW CUP THAT WORKS!!!!!!!!!
But before I get into that– here are the cups we tried. There were things I liked about them, even loved, but in the end, they couldn’t keep the fluids inside. (That’s what she said?! do people still say that?!)
I will start with my least fave and then reveal the perfect straw cup!
What was I looking for — Something durable, easy to clean and leak proof!
if you want to just know— scroll down! (c’mon though— who doesn’t like a little mastery in their life?)
1. Munchkin Click Lock Weighted Flexi-Straw Cup
When I first decided to try a straw cup with Krish (he was around 10 months at the time), I went onto one of my many mommy groups and asked which one to buy. Several moms raved about this cup so I ordered one right away.
Handles for easy holding lightweight durablethe weighted bottom — pretty cool because they can get milk at any angle.
Difficult to drink out of –— I tried to drink out of this cup and I literally couldn’t get anything out. Krish didn’t figure out how to drink out of this cup until after learning from his Tomee Tipee straw cup. LEAKS! — like it’s just sitting there with the straw exposed and milk comes out of the straw!!!!
Cap consistently comes off
difficult to clean — a lot of parts to wash after every use. (it comes with a little cleaning straw that I lost almost immediately
2. Tommee Tippee Insulated Straw Cups- 2 for $5 at Marshalls
I couldn’t pass these up when I saw them at Marshalls. Krish used Tommee Tippee bottles and sippy cups so I was excited to try these out. They were actually fantastic for a very short amount of time. These bottles don’t claim to be leak proof so I can’t blame them for leaking everywhere!
Very affordable Insulated durable
Too many parts and pieces to clean leaks like no other had to youtube how to take it apart and put it back together again.
3. Thinkbaby toddler straw cup
I don’t hate this cup, but I’m not in love with it. I love that it is so lightweight and easy for Krish to hold, but I don’t like how easily the straw tore.
lightweight and thin for easy holding — has an hourglass shape doesn’t leak for the most part — only leaks out milk when there is milk left int he straw and you close it and reopen it. comes with removable handles for easy transition
easy cap to hide straw
not durable — had to order replacement straws because the top straw got a large hole pretty easily and started leaking. one too many parts to clean– small ring inside plus top straw and button straw. Expensive ($10/cup)
AND THE WINNER IS……..
4. Oxotot Straw Cup <3 <3 <3
Doesn’t leak EVER Great cap Strong straw but still flexible three parts to clean and that’s it easy to assemble
Expensive ($10/cup…. but so worth it) slightly heavier transition cup with handles is a different cup so if you want handles, you have to buy another cup.
Spend the $10/cup on amazon and get the Oxo Tot— you won’t regret it. Buy it here!
