While my son is drinking from the cup, the part where the plastic spout meets with the lid comes apart and leaks all over the place.
Leakiest Sippy Ever
I probably own 80% of all the sippy cup styles out there. Every time I bust one out for my daughter, someone inevitably says, “Oh, we have that same cup.” This cup gets all similar remarks amongst my mom friends. “I hate this cup, it leaks all over the place!” The silicone top is very hard to adjust and secure. There is an air vent (similar to when you buy a huge plastic jug of water at the grocery store and have to punch through the hole), and this air vent might as well just be a big gaping hole. My daughter loves to use this cup to get water to wash herself with. Joy.-Andrew’s wife
These are almost just like a bottle nipple, except the nipple is flat at the tip. Maybe a bigger child could use this (MAYBE, but doubtful), but my 1 year old hates it. The nippe is just too strange and really is pointless.
no spills, son loves it
i bought 2 of these because my son was having difficulties adjusting from breast to the regular hard tip spout on normal sippy cups. after introducing him to this particular sippy cup he no longer had a problem with sippy cups. i highly recommend this product for breast fed babies. also it does not spill, great for traveling and the shape is easy for baby’s hands. my son loves this product.
Happy Baby, Happy Mom
We have hard time with sippy cups. My Son would not drink all day unless we give him his loved bottle. Nuby sport sippy so far did a good job. Very similar with his bottle but has a stroger flow. The colors do vary….and they don’t look like the one on the pic.
Nothing wrong with the cup other than not being able to pick colors….
I have a boy, so having him run around with a neon pink sport cup isn’t really my cup of tea, luckily my sister had a beautiful baby girl that will love it once she starts walking.
I found them!
Exactly what I was looking for and could not find in the store. When my son first started drinking from a sippy, this is the only kind he would use. Perfect for beginners.
No different from a bottle
This “sippy cup” is a fast flow bottle. I purchased this for this purpose, so worked for me, but wouldn’t want anyone to feel like this is a “step up” for their baby. Purchase the straw cup instead.
Don’t waste the money!
The suction valve is so tight my daughter inverts the silicone top while drinking because she sucks so hard, and then the top is all folded over and she can’t drink at all! I am always undoing the lid to release the suction. We have another Nuby cup that has the same problem. You can fix the problem by opening up the valve a little with a sharp knife or blade, but then it leaks more. My daughter’s favorite use of her sippy cup is “painting” with water on the bedsheets using her sippy cup. Much to our dismay! We’ve tried two Nuby cups and won’t ever buy NUBY again. What a mess! Better luck to pay a few dollars extra for a cup that works!
The cup itself is very hard and for some reason I thought was going to be softer. The spout itself is great. For some reason my son just didn’t warm to this sippy cup as much as the Munchkin ones.
Not no spill from my experience
We have used the Nuby straw cups with the 3 piece assembly with good results with our 19 mo old grandson for several months–and now that he is off the bottle were buying some more — wanted to try something with an easier cleaning/install system…very disappointed in the "no spill"–it may not qualify for "spilling" but there are definitely leaks–he will pull on the soft nipple which causes the seal to come loose at some point and unless he is perfectly straight with holding/drinking there will of course be leaks…Maybe a 19 mo old is too young to obey the laws of physics required to use this glass w/o problems…if so put an age designation on the description…
Just like a bottle but leaks
I bought this at the store today because my 21 month old saw it and declared it a “baba.” Great, I thought, maybe I can trick him into thinking this is a “baba” and I can ditch his real bottles. Got it home, washed it and filled it with milk. He happily drank from his “baba.” Cool, I thought, maybe weaning isn’t going to be a big deal. Within 5 minutes, the thing was pouring milk down my son’s shirt. He kept getting upset and asking me to wipe him. After inspecting the top, I figured out the problem. If you put any pressure on any of the top that is not the tip of the straw, it causes the little hole in the top, which allows air flow, to open up completely and liquid drains out. My son was putting the whole straw in his mouth (it’s a short tip) and his lips were pushing on the top lid part of the cup. When he did that, the air flow hole opened wide up and liquid dumped on him. I paid about $3.49 for this cup so I’m not going to go through the hassle of returning it, but this just proves that Playtex makes superior sippy cups. These really are inferior.
Easy Transition Off the Bottle
My son turned one the other day, and I am a little behind on transitioning him off the bottle. I started trying new cups when he was around 7 months old, but he never took to anything. Since he wasn’t yet a year old, I was honestly lazy about it and just kept going on with the bottle, figuring I’d get back to helping him transition later. A few tries here and there in the interim amounted to nothing. Now he’s too old for all those cups I had then, and he wants nothing to do with any of them or any of the new cups I purchased. I bought Avent and Born Free training cups (since we used Born Free bottles), as well as softer Avent spouts, and I even put it out there on Facebook to moms of young kids for suggestions, all to no avail. I think I have about $50 worth of once-used sippy cups on my kitchen counter and a mountain of suggestions as to how to get my son off the bottle (and some sympathy).What it all boiled down to was that my son did not like anything that wasn’t a silicone spout due to the fact that he had a silicone nipple on his bottles. Not many cups out there have that. I tried a straw cup, but he just didn’t get the concept of sucking on a straw to get liquid. I finally got him to accept the somewhat rubbery Born Free training cup (6+ month), as well as a Nuby 6+ month cup with a clear silicone spout, but it took FOREVER for him to drink his normal amount because the flow was too slow. He would get frustrated after a while and quit.Every cup I purchased was tried for a short time, then completely refused, to the point where if I even brought one of these oh-so-awful cups near my son’s face, he would scream bloody murder. (Mind you, my son is super easy-going and always has been, so this behavior is totally out of character for him.)Instead of ordering a million different things online and waiting for them to arrive only to not have them work, I finally went to a brick-and-mortar store to check out different cups. In short, I was looking for something with a silicone spout that was geared towards older babies (at least 9+ months, if not 12+) so that the flow would not be too slow. I came upon this cup, and I am so glad I did!At first my son mouthed and nibbled the spout because it wasn’t just like his bottles, but within a minute or two he took to sucking on it and drinking. He hasn’t quite gotten the hang of it to the point where he drinks as quickly as he does from a bottle, so the first few tries he quit after a bit out of frustration, and I had to top him off with a bottle. However, I knew we were on to something when he didn’t flat out refuse to have the cup near his face!After a few tries over the course of a week or so, he finally accepted this cup and drinks from it with no problem. Again, it’s not quite as fast as his bottle (on a stage 3 Born Free nipple), but it’s close; either that, or the flow is so fast that he has to take breaks and thus drinks his usual amount over a longer period of time. He has also used his skills on this cup to help him learn how to use a different brand straw cup, though he doesn’t like to drink out of that one for too long.So far the spout hasn’t shown any signs of damage from his teeth, but you can purchase replacements on Amazon.After a year of cleaning bottles with a million parts, I was so happy to discover that there is no major apparatus to have to clean and assemble, either. It’s a cup with a top ring and a silicone spout, plus a plastic cover. The only thing you have to do is make sure the two little nubs on the ring match up with the complementary notches on the spout.There are no handles to go with this cup. My son isn’t quite there on holding it by himself and successfully drinking. He can hold it for a short time but then usually wants to play with it, so if I want him to actually drink, I have to hold it. However, cups with handles were always way too interesting (handles –> mouth), so I’d always have to remove the handles if I could on any other cups. I appreciate that, but some people might not. This cup is designed to be easy to hold without handles, though, so handles are really unnecessary in my opinion.My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that my son sucks so hard on the spout that it often collapses. He stops to take breaks every few seconds anyway, so I just have to make sure I get it out of his mouth and pinch it out to release the built-up pressure (vacuum). It only takes a quick second and isn’t a huge deal.Caveat for some parents: This cup is not spill-proof in the sense that if it gets dropped on its head, liquid will definitely come out of the spout. Also, because of the way the spout works, there is usually a little bit of milk left in the top of the spout that can sometimes run down the spout and the side of the cup (not much, though). This cup does come with a cover (at least mine did where I purchased it), which fits nice and tightly, so it shouldn’t be a problem in a bag or if it falls over or gets tossed around with the cover. As such, I don’t recommend this for parents who let their kids run around with cups and don’t trust them not to throw their cups about/knock their cups over. However, if your child is using it, say, at the table or in a high chair and will turn it over without dropping it, you may get a few drips of what’s left in the top of the spout from the last sip, but nothing more. Only when pressure is exerted on the spout will something more come out.I had been hoping to avoid sippy cups totally (though unfortunately not after spending a fair amount of money on several), but after having success with this and subsequent success with a straw cup, we may just skip them after all! I bought several more, and today has been our first bottle-free day!Edited on April 9, 2012: My son is now 14+ months old, and we still use these sippers daily. I went and bought another pair from the local brick-and-mortar store that rhymes with “carpet,” so we have four total. The spouts don’t collapse anymore, and my son’s drinking speed has picked up because he has learned to suck some milk out, then breathe for a second (and release the built-up pressure in the spout), then suck some more. He can hold the cups for an extended period of time now, but once the liquid level gets low enough, he needs a little bit of assistance, since lifting the cup high enough to get what’s towards the bottom is rather awkward when he’s in his high chair. Our spouts have stayed 100% intact even with daily use (I handwash them); however I admit that my son does not get to walk around with his cups and only drinks in his high chair. As such I am pretty much right there to stop him from nibbling the spouts, which has happened more than a few times. He drinks milk from these cups and drinks juice (we do a prune juice and water mix for, um, regularity purposes) from a Tommee Tippee straw cup, and I fully attribute his ability to drink from a straw cup on his experience with these sippers. Once I can get him from the cups with the soft straws to the hard straws, I’ll probably stop using these sippers altogether. However, I am definitely glad I found them as a transition cup, and you can’t beat the price (especially if you buy them in pairs at said brick-and-mortar store)!
