Save the lids!
on April 13, 2013
These are great. Cost efficient, last a long time, don't leak, etc. The only thing is that the liquid ports on the lids can get "closed" if your child bites them. If they say that no liquid is coming out, DON'T THROW THE LIDS OUT!!
To allow liquid to come back out of the lids, it is very easy to just poke the holes with something moderately sharp and narrow, like a kebab stick, or tooth pick, and then the lids are good again - allowing once again for liquid to come out. The plastic material of the lid is very soft, which means they can be bit closed too easily, but the advantage of the soft material is that you can poke through it very easily to reopen and save the lids.
I wish you could buy the lids separately because the cup last forever, but the lids become clogged can be bit and easily shut, so don't throw out the lids, just poke the holes back open.
Compared to the Nuby cups, i think these are slightly better. The lids of the Nuby cups are harder plastic, so don't close as easy; but those cups have slightly rounded bases so they don't sit flat.
