*Celebrate Baby* Tommee Tippee Cups Review & Giveaway [Ends 3/17]


There is such a variety of sippy cups on the market that it makes it very overwhelming when you have to choose just one. All the labels state that their cups are completely spill-proof. My questions is, why do they advertise "spill-proof" when their cups are far from being spill-proof? I've tried a variety of brands and all the cups have leaked badly. Not just a couple drops here and there, but actual paddles. I read some good reviews on the internet about Tommee Tippee's Explora series and was very curious to try these out.

My little guy is 21 months old and I wasn't sure whether I should stick to what he knows (the 18m+ cups with straws) or go for something more advanced (24m+ cups). I decided on the Explora - Ttruly Spill Proof Drink Cups for 24m+. They come in a set of 2 which retails for only $7.99. I love having spares as my little guy always hides/looses the cups in the house and it takes me days to find them! (Actually as I'm writing this, he's hidden a cup somewhere already and I haven't been able to find it for days. I have a pretty small condo. Where should I look?).

I really like the design of the Explora cups. They've got a soft top for drinking and there is a minimum amount of plastic/silicone in the drinking system under the lid, which is great, because milk and juice always stain the silicone part and make it stink. The drinking spout looks similar to adult coffee cups. Just a little hole for dispensing liquids. My little guy was really excited about his new cups. I gave him some water and to my surprise he drank half a bottle on the spot. He had no trouble adjusting to the new drinking system. And I was delighted to see that no extra drops were coming out so far. He's actually been so excited about the new cups that for a month now, he's been bringing it to bed with him and drinking water before going to sleep. Isn't that cute? Like I mentioned, we've had a whole month to test these out. So far, I've had no paddles or any kind of leakage from the cups. They've been dropped on hardwood and tiled floors and the plastic did not break or crack.

One impressed baby and a very impressed mommy. If you are looking for sippy cups, head over to Tommee Tippee and check out the variety of cups they have ranging from 6 to 24 months. All cups are BPA free and microwave & dishwasher safe. Besides drinkware, they also carry tableware, bibs, pacifiers & bottle feeding supplies.
