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.
i have both of these and they are sooo leaky.

i found some BPA free playtex cups for only 6.99 for a 2 pack and they haven't leaked yet!

Re: Favorite Non BPA "no leak" sippy cup?

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.

Re: Favorite Non BPA "no leak" sippy cup?

My kiddo prefers straw cups to regular sippies. The best BPA-free one I've found so far is the Nuby " Mega Sipper" with the flip top. Some online reviews claim that they're leaky but we haven't had that problem with any of ours. I have other straw cups that drive me crazy (the Gerber "Cool Twisties" cup, which is also BPA-free, leaks like crazy) but the Nuby cups don't give us any trouble at all. In fact, one rolled under the couch when it was half full of water and I didn't realize it for a couple of days. It lay on its side the whole time and didn't leak a single drop.

If you just want to try some things without making a major investment, the Nuby ones are cheap ($3-$4) and easy to find (Target, BRU, and possibly WalMart).

The Nuby sports sipper works well for us. It's some sort of plastic, but supposed to be BPA free. You do have to make sure it's screwed on tight or else it leaks though.

Re: Favorite Non BPA "no leak" sippy cup?

Thanks for the suggestions. We have tried the non-BPA plastic ones that are cheap and easy to find, but I wonder what they are made of. It's hard to tell, and I'd rather be on the safe side by buying a stainless one that will last a looong time...but only if I can find one that doesn't leak of course

Anybody know how to tell which type of plastic the non-BPA cheap plastic ones are made of and if they are okay?

Another thing I hate about Klean Kanteen's avent spout is that DD made teeth marks in them the very first day she used them (and she doesn't walk around with a sippy, and she doesn't chew on them..she's just sucking hard). If there are teeth marks, that means she's EATING whatever plastic those spouts are made of.

I believe the majority of the "safe" plastic sippies are made with #1, 2, and 5 plastics. There's a brief overview of the different types of plastic here. Mainly, you want to avoid #3 PVC and #7 Polycarbonate...those are the main "toxic plastic" culprits.

But yeah, its really difficult to know what to do. Even with the stainless bottles, they have plastic spouts. Its nearly impossible to avoid.

Re: Favorite Non BPA "no leak" sippy cup?

We finally found a sippy that we love - they are "Green Sprouts" sippys. They have a fliptop, so my DD still has to hand it to me when she is thirsty - but she also hands it to me when she's done so I can flip it back shut. It doesn't have a valve in it so it's easy to clean, but that also means that it isn't leak-proof when it's flipped up. I don't really let her wander around with it though so it works for us

We use the Playtex sippies and quick straw cups. I know, they are plastic, but they are "safe" plastic.

These are the same cups we use. I also prefer straws over the flat bill sippy cups.
