Which sippy cups don't leak? is a question I didn't think I needed to ask before buying my son's first cup. After plenty of instances where I thought he just wasn't “getting it”, a lot of kicking myself for not getting the cover on properly and many messes, I finally realized that it wasn't user error. That sippy cup made by a popular baby brand leaked more often than it provided the mess-free drinking experience it promised.
I wish I could say that there was only one brand of sippy cup that leaked. Unfortunately, it seems that for every cup we've tried that kept everything clean, there was one that
poured dripped on toddlers, furniture, carpet and car seats. Sometimes I was to blame for not making sure all pieces were put together correctly before handing a full cup to Haiden and Piper. But, in my defense, one brand of cup has six different parts that need to be assembled for each use. If one of those pieces isn't fit perfectly into another, I can expect some sort of mess.
Of course, not every brand of sippy cup leaks, and the new Tommee Tippee Explora Drinking Cups sippy cups just don't leak.
- Unique drinking spout for kids on the go
- Advance-flo™ technology for easy drinking
- BPA Free
- Insulated base keeps drinks cooler for longer
- Stage 5 Cup
- Truly non-spill & leakproof
Unlike other valve systems the Tommee Tippee active sensor valve is designed by a physicist to be both so sensitive that liquid flows on demand, yet truly spill and leakproof.
I interrupted my son's Play-Doh activity to try to get him to talk about the cup for a minute:
If you can't watch it now, feel free to view it when you can have the volume on. There's a funny little exchange near the end 🙂
Haiden (my son in the above video) is 3 years old, so he's very used to drinking from sippy cups. He drinks from a regular cup at dinnertime, but he still uses a training cup like this one when we're in the car or at home when we're in the carpeted living room. Piper, my 2 year old daughter, is about the same, but she prefers a sippy cup over a regular glass all the time.
At this point, they're both so used to using a variety of cups that introducing a new brand with a different valve mechanism was not a problem at all! Younger toddlers might have a bit of trouble “sipping” out of this type of cup at first, but I'm sure they'd get it very quickly once they understood that there was a drink in there!
