Vital Baby Baby’s 1st Tumbler
Sippy cups are supposed to be a simple item on your baby list, right?
For some reason, I had a really hard time finding one that my son liked. Maybe you have the same problem we did, that is why I want to share our favorite one, the Vital Baby Baby’s 1st Tumbler, 4-oz. sippy cup.
When I started to introduce water to my son, I had a hard time finding a cup that he would be able to hold himself. All of the sippy cups I tried were too large and when they were full of water they were too heavy, and Enzo was not able to hold it properly.
If I didn’t have it full of water it was lighter for him to hold, but he was still not able to drink from it because he had to tip all the way back to get the liquid from the cup.
One day, I saw a friend and her little daughter with this very tiny sippy cup that I thought would fit perfectly in Enzo’s little hands. I searched for it and found it on Amazon for less than five dollars. As soon as we got it, Enzo and I fell in love with this little cup.
What we love about the Vital Baby sippy cup:
First, and most importantly, it is BPA, latex and PVC free. This was a must for us when choosing all of our baby utensils. It is also dishwasher-safe.
I love the size of this little four-oz. cup. Enzo can easily hold it with two hands just like he holds a bottle.
The spout is super soft, and unlike plastic cups it doesn’t hurt the baby’s gums. Enzo even likes to chew on it sometimes.
It has a soft base with a grip that helps the cup to be stable when placed on a flat surface. Enzo likes to have his drink in his highchair, and this cup will not slip from it when he plays with it up there.
It comes with a hygienic spout cover. The cover is a great idea, but it is the only thing that doesn’t work well in my opinion. The cover doesn’t attach to the cup very well and consequently falls off all the time. I actually lost mine. But even without the cover, the cup will not leak.
The cup also comes with a sippy valve, which prevents leaks and spills. It can be adjusted to increase the flow, or removed to have a free liquid flow.
The lid fits tightly to the cup. I have been using this cup for more than four months now and never had a leaking problem when the lid is well attached to the cup.
