When your baby turns 6 months, you can slowly start weaning them off the bottle. This is a very important step in your child’s development and we want to ensure that this special time is a pleasant and joyful experience – for both parents and child. We stock an extensive range of safe, easy-to-use, and colorful baby cups from training cups to toddler water bottles.
We are dedicated to developing innovative products for babies and toddlers so you can rest assured that our sippy cups have been thoroughly tried and tested by experts. Our sippy cups with soft spouts or flexi-straws are kind to delicate gums and precious teeth, and ensure your little one is pleasantly distracted from the discomfort of teething.
A sippy cup with handles will allow your little one to easily carry their favorite cup as they begin to explore their surroundings. And because our cups have Touch-Flo valves, the possibility of leaks is significantly reduced. With a choice of baby cups from the 360 range, your toddler is also able to drink from any area of the rim.
Our Clik-It spill-proof cups are ideal for toddlers on the move, while our collection of kids’ water bottles for older children are just what they need when you’re venturing out and about. We also carry a large amount of replacement parts, just in case.
When should I introduce a sippy cup?
Most parents tend to wait until their baby is 6+ months old because usually this is when they start introducing solid foods. At this age, your little one is able to sit up and hold their head steady by themselves, and will have developed a stronger grip. Babies that have been previously bottle-fed typically transition from bottle to cup quicker and may find it easier than breastfed babies. If you would prefer your baby get started with a sippy cup before reaching 6 months, you could try one of our training cups.
When should children stop using sippy cups?
When your little one turns one, it’s usually time to consider weaning them from the bottle and sippy cup to an open cup. They might at first find that drinking from an open cup is difficult and that’s why we developed our 360 cup. It’s leak-resistant and break-resistant, and your young child is able to drink from all sides. If your toddler still prefers their sippy cup or refuses to drink from an open cup, then you could try giving them a water bottle or a straw cup instead.
Are sippy cups bad for teeth?
The quick and simple answer is no. In fact, the opposite is true because introducing your child to a sippy cup could help prevent early tooth decay. However, sippy cups are designed to help transition a young child from bottle to cup and are not meant to be used long term. A sippy cup can be very comforting for a young child that is teething because the soft flexible spout is kind to gums and teeth. All of our cups are made from BPA-free plastic, which is a safe material used in all types of bottles and cups.
Can you put formula in a sippy cup?
For babies between 6-12 months, it’s perfectly okay to give them formula, breast milk, or water in a sippy cup. It’s a good way to both introduce your young child to a sippy cup and to help them transition from a bottle to a cup. It’s important, however, to ensure your baby’s sippy cup is thoroughly cleaned and sterilized between each drink. Soft spouts and flexible straws should also be cleaned regularly, but these parts will begin to show their wear over time. For that reason, we hold a large stock of replacement parts.
