I just shared how the girls are moving away from their sippy cups, as I shared a review of the Nuby fun drinking tumbler cups. But, thankfully, I get to hold on to this as being a little bit longer, as I was also sent a fun Dora the Explorer Nuby No-Spill Nickelodeon Printed Flip-It cup to try out, with this month's Nuby review goodies. If only they had sent two, as the girls have been fighting over who gets to drink from the Dora cup during the day. Thankfully, I found the same cup the other day at our local Dollar General store...so no more fighting. :-)
Even though the girls are starting to use drinking cups, I have a rule that during the day, they use their sippy straw cups, as it makes for less messy cleanups with water or juice spilling and making the hard wood floors slick or sticky. If only they would both give up the bottle at bedtime and switch to the sippy cup, both my husband and I and their dentist would be happy.
When it came to making the switch from bottle to sippy cup, both of my girls passed the beginner sippy cups that had spouts, and took to the straw sippy cups. Being a first time mom, I stocked up on the different stage sippy cups, thinking that they would go through each stage, only to be left with a bag full of sippy cups that I had to donate. Even though the girls went from using a bottle to reaching for a sippy cup with a straw, they needed particular sippy cups...ones with their favorite cartoon characters. If I handed them one with flower or a plain sippy cup, they would not want it. So, when I saw that this was a Dora the Explorer sippy cup, I knew they would both go crazy for it, as they are huge Dora fans. And, that they did!
Out of all the sippy cups with straws we own, I have to say that I am most impressed with this one, as it doesn't leak, which is a much for on-the-go drinking. It is a pain to have to pull out a car seat or try to take of the car seat cover to wash it because the girls spill a drink while in the car. And, like I said, they are starting to drink from a cup, so this Flip-It sippy cup is helping them transition to straw drinking, like at restaurants.
