Feeding Review : Safe Sippy

Made by KidBasix the Safe Sippy is a great option if your looking for a sippy cup that is free from Bisphenol A, phthalates and DEHA (They are certified!). Priced at about $14.95 its not awful on the wallet either.

Made from Stainless Steel and polypropylene this cup sports a thermoplastic soft rubber cover that protects it from dents, scratches and well just makes it look prettier. Connor actually prefers holding on to the soft plastic shell vs the cold stainless steel.

The handles are removable and rotate able (even with the cup is screwed closed) which is great for adjusting it for Connor, who currently is just beginning to use sippy cups and sometimes needs a little help. I had heard some parents did not like the angled sippy spout but we found it much easier to use and
manipulate than a traditional strait flat spout. Connor picked the cup up and could use it within seconds without any help or direction from me, which is fabulous. For a stainless steel cup it is light and easy to hold which is great for the little ones.

On the leak factor I give this cup a 4 out of 5 stars.. its not 100% leak proof but it is spill proof. To get this cup to leak we had to turn it upside down and shake it and it would slowly drip.. not enough to bother me especially with our hardwood floors I find that more than acceptable. Connor has thrown this cup across the room in more than more occasion and we only suffered a few drops of milk on the floor.

Though you can wash this in the top rack of the dishwasher it is not recommend that you do so with stainless steel cups. We did one pass in the dishwasher and the cup was not worst for wear... but we plan on hand washing it under most circumstances. Unless you forget and leave the cup to get all funky just a quick rinse and soap should be all you need (not a huge sacrifice to keep your baby from digesting anymore harmful chemicals than possible!!)
