Re: Which sippy cup does your child prefer?

Mine have never cared, although I never gave them a choice, they just sort of got whatever I gave them. We have all kinds. I hate the take and toss ones though bcs if they are dropped the lids pop off after a few uses. Other than that I think they are all pretty much equal as far as the kids. However, I personally like the Gerber ones the best bcs their spout thingy (the name escapes me for now!) the thing that keeps them from dripping is the easiest to clean and install.

Im surprised at how many dcs bite the spouts off nubys. DD is always biting/chewing/nawing on the spouts and shes never bitten through.

Re: Which sippy cup does your child prefer?

I voted other because my son (13 mo. old **almost**) has NEVER gotten the hang of sippy cups... but he's been drinking out of a straw forever! So we use the playtex straw cups. We checked it out with his pediatrician and she said that was fine since drinking out of a straw is a life-long skill, no worries.

My children still taking sippies take whatever they get! lol But we did buy alot of Munchkins (I think it is) Because they had to have all the Dora, Blue's Clues, and Sponge Bob cups.

Re: Which sippy cup does your child prefer?

when DS was still BF we used the Avent sippys and then used a variety until I got tired of matching all the valves and lids for 4-5 different kinds. So now we only use the First Years. but that is my choice really DS will use just about anything.

Re: Which sippy cup does your child prefer?

I am trying to wean my dd from her naptime and bedtime bottles, so nuby is working well for that, but at mealtimes and for out and about she likes avent. I like them, too, since there are different types of spouts,size, colors, handles, and they all fit all the others. I got some avent bottles as a shower gift (even though I nursed, and we bought some valves and handles,and turned those into sippys.

We started with Nuby and Take and Toss. Soon after he went to straw cups and that's what we mostly use. My day care kids use Gerber or Nuby sippys.
