Two years ago we lost Baby E's sippy cup at an air show with thousands of people in attendance. Since then we've lived without one and she graduated to an 'adult' reusable stainless bottle with a straw. Now that Baby T is interested in drinking on his own, I really needed something for him. I saw the Innobaby kids stainless drinking cup and thought it was perfect. We were sent the 12 oz cup in blue alligator planet print for review.
We love that this cup is leak proof when closed. I can just toss it in the diaper bag and not worry about anything getting wet. However, word of warning, it does not have a leak proof valve for when it is open - like some sippy cups do. The opening will have the water free flowing into your child's mouth. So it may not be a good idea to give it to a curious young child unsupervised, it can easily be all poured out. It may also be used with a supplied silicone straw, which my toddler loves. I also love that the top just snaps on and you don't have to twist it. I can never get those screw on tops straight! We have only used it with water, so it is always easy to clean. But no matter what you put in it, it's very simple to wash, to take apart and to put it together. Here is the breakdown:
We love the simple design and the available colors. We picked the blue planet alligator one, but I also love the gender neutral orange and green, and for princesses there is always pink! They also have matching stainless bento boxes. Innobaby has a variety of smart baby products, I am also a fan of the glass food storage containers.
