Sippy Cups

Boy do we go through sippy cups at our house.  My son loves to just pitch his across the room when he is finished taking a drink.  It was cute at first, now it's just annoying. :) 

I'm thinking about buying these couple - does anyone have any recommendations?

Munchkin Mighty Grip Flip Straw Cups 2-Pack, 10- Ounce (Colors Vary)
Munchkin 10 Oz Mighty Grip Spill-Proof Cup - 2 Pack

Munchkin Replacement Straws, 2 Pack


  1. Jess, what do you use now? Alexis uses the nuby sippy cups similar to your second link. They started to leak, so I bought some of the straw sippys because she too would throw them and there would be a puddle of milk. AH! She can drink out of a straw in a cup just fine, but the straw sippys confuse her. When there is just a little bit left, she is used to turning the sippy upsidedown and sucking those last few drops out, but she does this with the straw cups and gets nothing because the straw goes to the bottom of the cup and she gets MAD!!! She took the top off of the sippy the other day and I had a whole cup of milk on my floor. :( So I have given up on the straw cups.

    I wouldn't buy a ton. Buy one at walmart and see what mr man thinks of it! Hope he is more content than my little smartie pants.

  2. we had trouble with leaky sippies far we're loving the playtex twist and lock straw sippies though (got them at walmart)..also nice that we can stick the straw lids on our old playtex sippy

  3. Thanks girls. We have some of the nuby ones now - they aren't too bad. We had gerber ones from when Lydia was a baby and I loved them but can't find them anywhere now. And they are basically falling apart. Thought I would try the straw ones and see if they worked any better.
