I’m not sure if you realize this or not, but I have been on the hunt for a straw sippy cup that does not leak from the straw. Here’s our standard scenario: Pour milk into cup, give cup to toddler, toddler drinks, leaves cup on table, 10 minutes later I return to the cup sitting in a puddle of milk that has spewed out from the top of the straw. This has annoyed me and frustrated me to no end. M has always enjoyed a straw over a regular sippy cup but the above scenario sent me on the hunt for a straw cup that does not leak from the top of the straw.
Enter in: Safe Sippy 2 from Kid Basix
The best part about the Safe Sippy 2 is that we have had very few issues with liquids spewing from the top of the spout when we have the straw valve attached. It has happened, but it seems to have happened less. And, the benefit of this cup is that we can swap out the straw and just turn it into a regular sippy. I even had M turn it upside down the first time we used it, to see if it would spill out. A couple drips made it out, but it was pretty impressive considering he then decided to shake it about – my mistake for asking my child to turn his cup upside down! It held up pretty well and passed the toddler test for our house.
We have noticed that, surprisingly, M seems to prefer the standard sippy valve. Up until this cup, he’s always preferred a straw cup. Both hubs and I tried drinking from the cup and we found that when the straw is attached there is a suction so it’s hard to guzzle fluids. This happens with the standard sippy valve as well, but for some reason it doesn’t seem to bother him as much when it’s the standard sippy. He’ll use it either way we give it to him and he enjoys the removable handles. I guess the benefit of him not being able to guzzle is that it slows him down to some degree and it’s still my personal preferred cup since the volcano spout situation occurs less often.
