For most children, sippy cups are an essential transition from bottles to drinking from a regular cup. Some kids, however, struggle with the transition from bottles to sippies. Children may dislike the look and feel of the cups. They may have trouble learning to use them, especially those with spillproof lids.
Sippy cups have been associated with speech and dental issues in children. Some designs can also allow liquids, dirt, and debris to become trapped in the cup. This can lead to mold inside the cups, which is dangerous for the health of children.
Thankfully, there’s an alternative to sippy cups that’s a much better option for learning children to drink out of open cups: the Reflo Smart Cup.
The Reflo Smart Cup is as easy to use as drinking from an ordinary cup, but reduces the risk of spills due to the Reflo insert. It controls the flow of the liquid from the cup at virtually any angle.
The Reflo Smart Cup is BPA-free, phthalate-free, and dishwasher safe. There are no parts of pieces that might trap dirt and germs. It is safe and hygienic, available in red violet, blue, green, and clear. The Reflo Smart Cup retails for $6.99 and is made in the USA.
While Hailey will drink out of a sippy cup or a cup with a lid and straw, sometimes she asks for a “big girl” cup. Because of her cerebral palsy, her fine motor skills are not as developed as other children her age. This cup has been fantastic. She loves it!
