I’ve bought at least half a dozen sippy cups…with straws, without straws, handles, no handles. It seemed that every single one had an issue. Either the straw was WAY too hard for my son to use, or it would spill everywhere. It definitely couldn’t be turned upside down…which is a big deal when trying to give a whiney kid milk while driving! I had come to terms that W would just have to cope…be soaking wet if he fell asleep with the sippy cup upside down, or he just didn’t get one at all!
I was gifted the best straw sippy cup of all time! (Go figure it was from our feeding therapist…genius 😉 )
It’s called the BOT Straw Sippy Cup. Not only does it NOT LEAK AT ALL but it’s easy for him to hold, it’s pretty cute, and the best part….the straw! It MOVES!! No matter how he is holding it, the straw is flexible and has a weighted bottom that allows it to adapt to any direction the fluid inside it is going! IT’S AMAZING!!!! He can even tilt his head all the way back and still be able to drink out of this straw sippy cup! I’m in love!
If you have kids, you have to get this! It solves all of you sippy cup problems! It’s easy to drink through, I’ve tried it, and W loves it so far…and as you know he is a genius so I tend to side with him 😉

“BOT features the an innovative straw technology that allows the straw to move freely in any direction the cup is tilted.
