An update about the last few days at some point. Firstly though, some sippy cups. I have been on a mission to find the perfect cup for Leo. We have several of the Tomy Tippee ones:
which are fine for mealtimes, but no good for when Leo's just charging around (especially if they have milk in) as the contents just pour out if they are upside down!
So I tried some Boots straw cups:
they are ok but again leak when upside down, and somehow manage to wick the liquid up the straw and spill a bit even when the right way up! I think Leo likes the straw action, though.
So I tried a different Tomy Tippee one, with a soft silicone spout that Leo needs to apply pressure to to get drink out:
The problem with this one is that if Leo bashes the spout against anything (a very common occurrence), the drink pours out, and if he drops it and it lands upside down the same thing happens. So again not ideal for play time.
We have a doidy, but there's just no way he's using that by himself for a long time yet:
So on Friday I thought about and bought a Nuby straw cup, with a valve and a soft straw:
which, so far, seems to solve all my cup-related woes! It's easy to hold, easy to drink from, and so far doesn't spill at all. Even when Leo (deliberately) pushes the straw onto things, it flexes in a way that means the valve doesn't open. I am impressed. The final test will be giving to him in the car; if he can't find a way to make it spill in the car I will get rid of all the others and get more of these.
