Nannies 12 Favorite Sippy Cups

Products Nannies Love

Since toddlers tend to spill a lot, Sippy or Training Cups make a great transition from a bottle to a cup for little kids. Just as each child is unique, each Sippy Cup is slightly different. Some children prefer straws with their Sippy Cups while others prefer soft spouts for their Trainging Cups.

I asked 125 nannies what their favorite Training Cups were in 2021. I also asked if there are any Sippy Cups they would not recommend. The results are listed below ranked in order from most recommended cups at the top of the list to the least mentioned Sippy Cups towards the bottom.

Some of the Sippy Cups that nannies mentioned that they loved the most, others dislike and wouldn’t recommend using. So, when it comes down to which Sippy Cups nannies like most it’s usually due to what the child likes — and all children are different.

Amazon is a great place to buy sippy cups because they make pricing clear and they also offer what they call the Amazon Family Program. It’s the perfect way to get the most out of your money, as it provides members with 20% off of product subscriptions.

1. OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup with Removable Handles

The Straw Cup’s almond-shaped, spill-proof straw conforms to the child’s mouth and minimizes mess, easing the transition from bottle, breast feeding, or sippy cup. The straw valve opens as soon as tot’s lips touch spout for easy drinking, and the hinged cap closes to create a leak-proof seal. The removable handles provide a comfortable grip for your little one, and the cap and straw are removable for easy, thorough cleaning.

2. Mama Bear Weighted Straw Sippy Cup

This clever cup is rated second favorite of the nannies that took the survey. This Sippy Cup is designed to help babies 6 months and up make an easy transition from bottle to cup. It’s dishwasher safe and BPA-free. The cup has comfortable handles designed for little hands, a spill-proof spout, attached lid, and a flexible, weighted straw. One nanny complained they don’t recommend this Sippy Cup because it has too many pieces.

3. Munchkin Weighted Straw Trainer Cup

This is the third highest rated Sippy Cup in our survey. Nannies that took this poll like that it doesn’t spill no matter which way their little one’s move. The flip top lid had a click lock leak proof function.

4. Lollaland Weighted Straw Sippy Cup

Nannies love the Lollaland cup. It has an innovative straw sippy cup that makes a great starter cup for infants and toddlers. The valve-free, weighted straw allows children as young as nine-month-old to easily and effectively drink from the straw, even when the cup is tilted. The handles make the cup easy for small hands to hold, but they detach easily so you can put your Lollacup in a cup-holder. The cup is dishwasher-safe, easy to clean, and comes with a straw-cleaning brush for added convenience. Lollacup is proudly made in the USA with safe materials that have been FDA approved for use by young children as young as nine-months-old. One nanny answered this is the one cup she wouldn’t recommend because it leaks for her too much.

5. Nuby Easy Grip

This Sippy Cup is different from the ones listed previously because it has a no-spill soft silicone spout instead of a straw. When drinking, the one piece Touch Flo valve opens so liquids pass through the spout only when the child sips.

6. Dr. Brown’s First Straw Cup

Designed to help baby transition from bottle to cup, this spill-proof straw cup features a soft, flexible straw that allows the baby to drink while holding this cup at any angle. Designed with handles that are easy for little hands to hold, the cup features an attached lid that stays open when baby drinks and keeps straw clean when not in use. The cute animal logos are adorable as well. This Baby’s First Straw Cup is easy to use, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Also includes a straw cleaning brush. Available in 9 oz/270 ml size.

7. Thinkbaby Stainless Steel Sippy Cup

Thinkbaby Sippy Cups have soft silicone spouts. This makes for easy transition from baby bottles to sippy cups. With the Thinkbaby Sippy of Steel, the little one is already used to the feeling of a silicone spout, so making the transition is quite simple. Many nannies highly recommend using the Sippy of Steel with of Made-from-Limestone Neoprene Sleeve.

8. Pura Kiki Stainless Steel Straw Bottle

This is an ingenious bottle that evolves as the child does. The Pura Sippy Cup features a stainless steel bottle, medical grade silicone components, and zero plastic parts. The included silicone sippy spout is a fast-flowing spout that helps your child transition from a bottle nipple. Ideal for children 6 months to 2 years, this sippy cup is compatible with all silicone components from Pura including our natural vent nipples in various flow rates, silicone straw, big mouth sport top, and sealing disks.

9. Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup

Toddlers can drink from a cup without making a mess with the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup. The no-spill cup has an ergonomic design that is easy to grasp, and the soft silicone spout is gentle on gums and teeth. This double-pack comes with two easy-to-clean 9-ounce cups made from BPA-free material in fun pink and purple colors. My Easy Sippy Cup is designed for toddlers ages 9 months and older.

10. Green Sprouts Sip Straw from Glass

The Sip and Straw Cup made from glass allows baby to safely handle a glass cup during mealtime. Liquids only touch glass and silicone on the inside, while the outer plastic shell and shock-absorbing base help to prevent breakage. A silicone sippy and straw spout are included for extended use and to grow with baby.

11. Chicco Trainer Cups

All Chicco cups have interchangeable tops and bottoms so you can put together the perfect cup for each stage of your little one’s development. 5 spouts + 3 cup styles to choose from! All components are completely free from BPA, PVC, Latex and are dishwasher safe. The semi-soft spout 6M+ first spout Trainer sippy cup has a semi-soft spout that is gentle on gums but built tough for teeth. With a unique groove on the spout to guide lower lip positioning, it’s the perfect sippy cup for teaching little ones to drink on their own.

12. Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup

This cup is most like a real cup used by children and adults. Drinking from anywhere around the rim of this trainer cup, like a regular cup, helps support normal muscle development in a child’s mouth. The valve automatically closes when child is not drinking, creating a leak-proof seal. Six nannies responded they would not recommend this cup because it spills all of the time. Perhaps introducing this cup later in development is why it was liked by many nannies.
