My toddler uses straw sippy cups — plastic cups with a two-part straw with a spillproof valve. I'd really like to replace them with a non-plastic, or at least less-plastic option as they start to wear out and we lose pieces. Does anybody know of any kid-sized containers with built-in straws? Spillproof is nice, but it has to be a straw, not a sport top or anything else.
You might check out stainlesscups.com I am ordering some stainless baby bottles and tumblers from them. They have some different spout options. One is called a sport top, but looks like a flip up straw and they do have silicone sippy tops. May not be what you want… but worth a look!
Okay, some of the comments on that post were just silly. Had to roll my eyes at people who were pro-bottle but anti-sippy cups. My first kiddo absolutely refused everything except the breast until I got her to drink from a straw. Sometimes mom doesn't get to decide! She had several hungry days at daycare until I sent her off with breast milk in a toddler cup with built-in straw.
Thanks for the ideas. The ones at stainlesscups.com look like a good option for us.
I just realized I forgot to come back and share what I found! We ended up buying a Thermos Foogo. The top and straw are still plastic, but the body of the cup is stainless steel. And thermal, which is a big plus. I ordered it from Amazon, but my husband said he saw them at Target.
We also have a kid's size Camelbak bottle in stainless steel, but the kiddo doesn't like it as much. Again, the top and straw are still plastic, but the cup itself is stainless.
