We were SUPER excited this week when we received a brand new NUBY No-Spill Easy Grip cup from NUBY USA to try. Any mom will tell you that finding “the perfect sippy” isn’t easy. Luckily, we’ve tried SEVERAL brands and styles, so we felt up to the challenge.
When our cup arrived my tot immediately demanded “more”, which is his way of saying he’d like something to drink. I seriously doubt he was thirsty, but the lure of a shiny new cup was too much to pass up. So to the fridge we went for an ice cold sippy of milk (after we washed it, of course).
We’ve always been a fan of NUBY products. You can’t beat the durability, or the price. And for me, there is nothing worse than loosing a cup that cost $10+. That’s why NUBY is our go-to choice, because if we loose a cup (and oh goodness do they disappear faster than his socks) I can easily replace it for a couple of bucks.
Now the downside. And yes, there is always a downside (I have to be honest, right?). The NUBY No-Spill Easy Grip cup tends to leak if you don’t have the valve placed just right. There are small cutouts around the rim of the cup that match corresponding cutouts in the valve. If they are off by just a tiny bit milk WILL GET ON YOUR SOFA- be warned! And for a mom with little spare time, that can be aggravating from time to time. BUT if you use the cup CORRECTLY, you will have no problems with leaking.
Pros: Affordability, color selection, easy to use, easy to clean/sanitize, easy for small hands to grip
Cons: Difficult aligning the lid with the valve, thin plastic doesn’t keep beverages cold very long
