Playtex Sipsters vs a Rough and Tough Little Boy


You might remember last year when I shared about a new sippy cup that we had tried out, the Playtex Playtime Cup (renamed to the Playtex Sipsters). I absolutely loved the fact that it DID NOT LEAK and that I could toss it in my purse and head out the door with out worrying. Well friends it is still my favourite cup of choice and is still being used in our house. While Hazel is a bit old for “Sippy cups” it is still her go to water cup for when we are out and about. So when it came time for Everett to start adding some water to his meal times it was only natural that I purchased him one of the Playtex Sipsters Starter cups. 

The Sipsters starter cups offer the same great twist and click technology, meaning no worries about water leaks. As Everett tends to be a little rougher than his sister, I can vouch for the toughness of the cups and no matter how hard your little one hits it against a counter in protest (of waiting for their dinner of course) it will not break or leak! The difference between Hazels cup and the Sipster Starter cup is it’s intended to introduce independent drinking skills. While Everett will take a bottle when needed he doesn’t get one very much and at this rate he might possibly go straight into drinking for a cup or sippy cup instead of a bottle once I am done nursing him. The Sipster cup is great for teaching him how to drink on his own, it has two different options for a top, a silicone spout or straw. We currently have both and he has no preference over either. Because both of the tops are soft, they make for great teething aids when his teeth are really bugging him, which is a win for everyone. I also love the fact that it has the removable handles, it makes it really easy for him to cart it around the house as he adventures. When I say cart it around, that he does. He realized very quickly that it was his cup and will bring it with him, drop it, throw it, but he will always find it and is happy to know its around for him to have a drink whenever he needs.


While we are happily using our two Sipsters cups meant to aid in independent drinking we have also become a huge fan of our sisters My Little Pony Cup (even though its missing the pony now, ha!). So much so that I ran out and purchased one of the Thomas the Train Stage 3 Sipsters cups, meant for 12 months and up. You can find the cups at major retailers across Canada, including and Toys R us. While we are not far off from the 12 month mark, this is definitely a sign that my little guy is growing up too fast and I don’t think I am ready for  these big kid cups!

    So … got one for Max – the one with the straw. He’s such a little chewer that he’d rather just chew on the straw, rather than drink from it. Argh!! ?

      Ha! Everett does that too! But it will help them eventually learn to drink from a straw even though they use it as a teething toy right now! Everett picked up Hazels, one of the toddler cups, and started using to no problem so I got him one of those too.
