Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned for free as a thank you for writing this post. Regardless, all opinions expressed are completely my own.
A group of parents teamed up in 2007 when concerns arose about dangerous BPA in plastic bottles. Although these parents were easily able to find BPA-free replacements for the plastic bottles they were using, they were unable to find a suitable replacement for their children. As a result, they invented the Kid Basix line of stainless steel children’s bottles.
Kid Basix sent us two of their Safe Sippy 2 cups.
The most unique thing about these sippies is that they each come with a straw and three different valves. There’s a travel valve (the dark orange) to plug the opening to prevent leaks during travel. There’s a sippy valve (the clear one) to make the cup into a sippy. And there’s the straw adapter (the light orange one) to use the straw. Since each valve is easily removed, the sippies are super easy to thoroughly clean.
The spout is straw-like and designed to for developing palates.
Each sippy has a dust cap to protect the spout in the refrigerator or in the diaper bag. And the handles are removable.
Each bottle is constructed with food-grade stainless steel that is durable, non-leaching, antimicrobial, and dishwasher safe. It also comes with a thermo plastic rubber sleeve that makes it easier for the wee one to grip while simultaneously insulating the cup, keeping its contents cold.
The Little Mister really loves the sippies (especially the blue).
For him, the handles are more of a carrying convenience than a necessity.
Although the Little Guy has not yet mastered the straw, he does very well with the sippy valve. He needs the handles in order to hold it up.
Pros: The bottles have cute colors, are the perfect size, and have very convenient features (everything–from the different valves to the removable handles–are convenient). Both boys have an easy time using them and seem to enjoy them.
Cons: At this time, I cannot think of any cons.
