19 crazy-cute sippy cups for thirsty kids

19 crazy-cute sippy cups | Mum's Grapevine

Sippy cups are the perfect thirst-quenching companions for bubs who have started drinking water or are transitioning from the breast or bottles. Not only do they help encourage a healthy habit of sipping water throughout the day, but they can be great for oral and fine-motor development.

When you’re on the hunt for a first sippy cup, look for a kid-friendly design that’s easy for little hands to grasp, and ideally one that is leak-proof. If your bubba and your bag come home dry, it’s a win-win situation.
