Being a mother of two I have had my share of sippy cup purchasing experience. With our girl we tried several different kinds and she ended up catching on with one particular brand so we stuck with it until she was able to drink from a non-lid cup, even then a cup with a lid comes in handy when your kids are determined to spill just about everything.
With little guy it’s been different. We have tried him with his sister’s old sippy cups and he refuses to drink from them and says they are her cups unless of course she is using one then he wants what she has, typical little brother behaviour. We have bought several different kinds and styles of sippy cup, even one that almost resembles a bottle but nope, no dice. He can’t manage to drink out of them. The spouts flow too fast or are too slow. We have been looking for a good quality sippy cup that doesn’t leak and our little guy can actually drink from properly.
We were happy to review BornFree sippy cups and the newest line in BornFree cups -the Twist’nPop cup. Incase you didn’t know, BornFree is the worlds leading BPA-free baby brand and specializes in designing baby and toddler products like baby bottles, pacifiers and sippy cups using safe materials with the smartest innovations. BornFree cups and bottles feature the unique BornFree venting system, designed to reduce colic and middle-ear infections.
The sippy cup is what we were most interested in although the Twist’nPop cup will come in handy for our girl to use or for little guy when he is a bit older and masters the first stage of drinking like a big boy!
The sippy cup came in blue, which he loved. It’s leak-proof and has the unique BornFree venting system, rubber spout, removable handles so you can use it as a beginner or for toddlers and of course the lid. The size is good, holds about 12oz. Very simple to take apart to clean and very simple to assemble back together, no more fighting with crooked lids. It is also dishwasher safe.
As for little guy, it seems he had a very easy time drinking out of this one. No complaints, in which case he would usually throw the cup on the floor and say “it’s broken”. He’s enjoying his new BornFree sippy cup and I’m happy at the fact it works for both of us.
The Twist’nPop cup is a 14oz toddler drinking cup with a twist-straw mouth and silicon straw. It is quite big in size and has an ergonomic design making it easy for smaller hands to hold it. Although I find the cap is harder for little guy to twist open and close but he is still just mastering the sippy cup itself. To open the Twist’nPop you twist the cap counter-clockwise until the straw pops-out and to close you just twist the cap the opposite way until you see the arrow and know that it’s properly sealed to keep the straw clean and prevent leaks. All parts are removable, easy to wash like the sippy cup are also dishwasher safe.
