Little Lamb loves juice. So we have plenty of juice cups in the cupboard, but I’m not 100% happy with them. Leaks and spillages are starting to really annoy me now, so I’m determined to find one that doesn’t leak! I’m sure you’re shouting at the screen, telling me it’s impossible to find a non-spill beaker, and I’m sure you’re right, but I’m on a mission and I won’t stop until I find it!
Well… I think I’ve found it!
As you can see, this one has a hard plastic teat. Jaxson has used similar cups from other brands, and didn’t get on well with it. He had to suck really hard to get any juice out, and I can imagine this would be quite uncomfortable for his little mouth. However, the cups he has with rubber teats, are now chewed and damaged, and leak terribly. I will add, these were my favourite up until he chewed them. I’m not saying they aren’t worth a try. I just think they are suited to younger babies, with less teeth!
So far I have been really impressed with the OXO tot sippy cup, and so has Jaxson! At first he had to get used to holding it, as it’s a little heavier than his other cups, but as you can see above, he’s mastered it pretty well! What I love about this cup is it’s simplicity. No lid (that I would definitely lose anyway), simple shape, removable handles, and it can go in the dishwasher! It’s recommended for 6+ months, which I agree with, but from my experience, I would recommend a little older, but it depends on how soon your baby masters using a cup.
As I’ve decided the OXO tot sippy cup is my preference, I thought I’d put it to the test with Jaxson. I filled up his old juice cup and this one, and put both out in front of him. He reached out and said ‘juice’, so I gave him his old cup. Nope, this wasn’t what he was reaching for. He pushed the cup away and reached for the OXO tot.
There you go. Decision made. We are sticking with this one!
Thumbs up for the OXO tot! (Looks like I better try some more of their products!)
P.S. So far very minor leaks and spills (Jaxson loves to shake his cup around, and has learned when he does, the liquid comes out, so maybe it’s the baby I need to change and not the cup?!)
