Now that my son has mastered eating from a spoon he decided to move on to a new challenge: drinking from a cup.
Just like a lot of other mothers, I'm not inlcined to let him drink from a regular cup due to the spill and mess factors. Instead, I decided to get some sippy cups.
My big draw with the Take-N-Toss products is that they're cost effective for me because they're meant to be tossable. At the same time, they're sturdy so you can wash them for reuse. The sippy cups are no exception.
Another thing I've come to like about the brand is that the lids and containers are, for the most part, interchangeable. This means that even though the full-sized sippies are a bit big for my son right now, I can still use the tops paired with the snack containers to make a learning sippy cup. I'll admit, I got the idea from the fact that they already sell the same thing - but now I get 2-1 goodness! Not only that, but I can use his bigger cups in the meantime for my own use or when nieces and nephews come to visit.
The only problem I had with these cups is the fact that they don't let a lot of liquid out when held upside down. That's what they're designed to do, so I'll give them the points. The solution my husband came up with was to widen the holes a little bit. In a normal sippy I would have glared daggars at him for even considering it, but with these I had not problem. By doing that, we got the juices flowing, so to speak, enough for my son to realize what he was supposed to do.
Long story short, the sippies are great and I wholeheartedly recommend them.
