Favorite Non BPA "no leak" sippy cup?

What's your favorite non-BPA sippy cup for your toddler? I'm looking for one for 18 mo. old dd (Klean Kanteen did NOT work for us; it leaked EVERYwhere!)

I put Born Free first, but when DD was learning how to drink from a sippy we used the really cheap ones (they're BPA free too). I forget the brand but I've seen them at Babies R Us and Wal-Mart. They probably leaked a little more than you would like, but since the water dripped out of the opening she got the hang of it quickly! The only thing I don't like about Born Free is that there are a million pieces to clean, so they're a little bit of a pain in that respect.

I have a couple FooGos, but they were gifts and I cannot afford them myself. But the Playtex insulators are BPA free and are cheapa nd available everywhere. Thes are my fav, and why I voted other.

Neither leaks unless the valve is not in correctly.

We only use kleen kanteens. My kids have like every color and it is the only thing they actually will drink from(besides cups). Havnt had any problems with leaks and we have been using some of the cups for over two years now. They had a sale at christmas so we stocked back up

I just don't understand how some people have no leaks with these?! It makes no sense. Maybe I'll try buying different Avent inserts for them...though they've been leaking since they were brand new.

Are you pushing the avent spouts up tight into the top? I noticed if they are not tight then they leak so I just repush them up and it fixes the problem. My dd takes hers to bed with water and it gets rolled all in the bed and still no leaks

Thanks for that suggestion, but I have tried that and everything else...ughhh...I think it's just the luck of the draw with these cups.

I have had better luck with cheap non-BPA cups, but I wonder what they ARE made out of since they are all some type of plastic.

i agree that the million pieces on the born free sippy are a pain in the butt to clean.. and i have a hard time keeping the spout from leaking. but they're still a good "water/juice" cup.

i like the thermos foogo sippy and also straw sippers for milk. i haven't really had a problem with those leaking... however, there are as many parts to the foogo sippy as their are to the born free sippy.
