10 Best Sippy Cups, Tested & Reviewed

We had parents and their toddlers test sippy cups from top-rated brands like Tommee Tippee, OXO and Nuk to find the best of the best.

We've been independently researching and testing products for over 120 years. If you buy through our links, we may earn a commission. Learn more about our review process.

Fun fact: The current generation of parents is the first to grow up with sippy cups, since the technology was only invented in the late 1980s. Before that, babies and toddlers used baby bottles until they switched to open-top cups.

In the Good Housekeeping Institute Parenting Lab, we've tested over 30 sippy cups in the last decade , with our own kids as the testers, to determine the best of the best. All told, we've logged thousands of hours filling, serving and cleaning sippy cups (not to mention picking them up from the floor after they've been flung across the room).

On our list you'll find options for babies, toddlers and preschoolers; and at the end of our guide, we list features to look for so you can find the right sippy cup for your child, as well as important information about how to clean your cups to keep them mold- and germ-free.

Parents rave about this spoutless sippy cup, which is popular with both babies and toddlers. "It really, truly, honestly hasn't leaked for me, and it's been held upside down for minutes at a time and tossed across the room," one tester said. "My daycare also said that they love these cups for that same reason. My son is now 4 and still uses it. It's durable, doesn't look too babyish and it's easy to clean."

A child can drink from any side of this cup, hence the name, and it seals as soon as they stop sipping, which helps prevent spills . The only complaint we have heard from our parent testers is that young babies used to a bottle may not immediately understand how to get liquid out of this. "It takes time for them to get it, but once they do, it's very easy," said a mom of two whose kids under 5 both use the Miracle 360. "My oldest still takes it to bed at night because it won't spill."

The idea behind a weighted straw is that your child can sip liquid up the straw from any angle , so even if they're not tipping it "right," it will work through the magic of gravity — and they'll never have to tilt their head way back to get to the last drops.

As for the Click Lock lid, "You hear an audible click once it passes a certain point so you know it is on tight and will stay in place," says Rachel Rothman , the Good Housekeeping Institute's chief technologist and a mom of three kids under 6 who likes and uses this straw sippy cup. It's also a nice bargain!

But keep in mind: any cup with a straw is tougher to clean. Munchkin sells this set of Bottle and Cup Cleaning Brushes to help with the detail work.

The Learner Cup is a GH Parenting Award winner, due to being a nice tool when you're ready to transition your baby from their bottle to their first sippy cup. We love its smart features, including a soft spout that’s gentle on gums , a vent to reduce the swallowing of air and removable handles that are comfortable for little hands to grip.

Our testers had highchair-age kids who were able to easily wield this cup by themselves. Because of that, the kids predictably tossed it at times, but it didn't show any signs of breakage in our testing. It is fairly baby-looking, however, and only holds 5 ounces, so a tot older than a 1-year-old might not think it's cool enough or big enough.

Some parents are drawn to silicone, which is what this EZPZ cup is made from. We're tickled by its tiny, right-size design for little hands to hold independently , without handles, so your baby can feel more like a big kid. It's age-graded for 9 months and up and we feel kids are best ready for it as 1-year-olds.

Eventually you can pull off the top and help your child learn to drink from an open cup, like a little adult. Because this only holds 4 ounces, you can trust that even if only half the liquid makes it into your kid and half ends up on the highchair tray, it won't be too much to clean up. (They have to learn somehow!)

Even with the straw, this cup is the least leakproof on our list. We don't recommend that you take this on outings and do recommend that you keep it in your kitchen to use while your baby is in the highchair. By the time your baby turns preschool age, this will be too small, but by then, it will hopefully have had a good run.

Your preschool kid is ready to drink more than 10 ounces and wants to look cool, which might mean no handles. This CamelBak looks like a big-kid water bottle but the spout is made for young kids who still bite down, while the lid is leakproof for when they inevitably pack it in their own backpack upside-down. It's a straw cup that Rothman has also used and liked with her three kids.

The eddy+ gets bonus points for using some recycled materials. On a super-practical note, this fits standard cup holders on most convertible car seats . It can go in the dishwasher, but the straw and the spout require some extra attention occasionally to get them sanitized.

Older babies and toddlers who are still regularly drinking milk might prefer this system that holds the same 8 ounces as their beloved bottle. The silicone handles are easy to grip and are removable; you can use them on most any narrow baby bottle, not just Dr. Brown's.

The silicone spout, however, is made to fit on any Dr. Brown’s Options+ Narrow bottle, and that's a reason Good Housekeeping Institute Nutrition Lab Director Stefani Sassos used this with her daughter: She was already a Dr. Brown's glass bottle user and transitioning to this handle and spout was a way to seamlessly move to a sippy.

Note that the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests weaning your baby off the bottle and onto a sippy cup by 18 months of age to ensure they're getting more calories from food than from milk.

Double-walled insulation helps keep your toddler's water or milk cool for a couple of hours, especially if you add ice. And with the handy carry handles, this is a great sippy cup for playground playdates or Pee Wee soccer. Testers also praise this as a durable, fairly leakproof option that can survive the rough handling of active toddlers.

We like that though this is a cool-looking cup, it's got a soft spout that's easy on a toddler's mouth. When you have to clean it, the brand does not recommend steam sterilizing as it can negatively affect the insulation; you'll want to just give them a good scrub.

For parents of babies who are used to counting every ounce they drink, the transition to a sippy cup can be weird because there's often no measurement lines on the side. This sippy has ounce marks so that if you're serving breastmilk or formula, you can still accurately gauge how much your baby drinks, and it also makes it easy to mix formula right inside the cup.

This cup has the youngest age-grading at our list — it's labeled appropriate for 4 months and up, though we have not tested it on a baby that young. It takes some babies a little time to learn how to suck on this cup's straw because they must bite down a bit to get the tube to open up. The lid can be snapped shut to keep it sanitary when you're on the go.

The First Years Take & Toss Spill Proof Sippy Cups

These aren't for longterm use, but they're useful as inexpensive sippy cups for a kids' party, playdates, restaurant meals or travel . "I used to take these on camping trips because if one got filthy or lost, we didn't have to mourn it," said one tester. "And if you have a bunch of little friends or cousins over, these make it easy to give everyone a drink."

You can mix and match the lids and cups and write on them with a Sharpie to mark kids' names. They can be hand-washed or put in the dishwasher and reused but because they're not as durable as a regular sippy cup, you will eventually want to recycle them (if your town recycles plastic #5) or toss them (not eco-friendly, which is why we wouldn't use them as an everyday solution). We would not put these in a steam sterilizer either.

A tradeoff for the convenience factor is that these are not as leakproof as the other sippy cups on our list. We don't recommend putting them in your diaper bag with liquid inside; it's safer to travel with them empty, then fill them up when you're ready to serve. Also, if they fall from a height, the lid can detach.

This Korean-made baby cup is gaining a cult following. A mom recently told us, "All of my friends are now using this cup," which can transition through stages starting with a spout, then a beginner straw, then a weighted straw and finally the brand's Stage-2 straw (purchased separately).

The Grosmimi packaging and videos do a great job explaining to parents why the various parts appeal to babies of different ages. This is the priciest single sippy cup on our list, and you might end up buying replacement accessories for it — online reviewers sometimes say their baby bit a hole the straw or spout.

But fans say it is worth the money because it's made of a hard polypropylene plastic that's long-lasting, so you won't have to replace the cup itself as often, just the smaller parts. That can make this a less wasteful choice as well.

How we test sippy cups

line break

At the Good Housekeeping Institute Parenting Lab in New York City, we closely review children's feeding products (many of which appear in our annual Parenting Awards ).

Over the past decade, we've tested and evaluated over 30 sippy cups, both in the Lab and through surveys with consumer testers. Between our Lab pros and parents, we've logged thousands of hours with sippy cups, each of which need to be considered over the course of at least six months.

When evaluating what makes a good sippy cup, we first look at how easy they are for a child to drink out of without frustration. Then we check how easy they are to fill and close tightly, how leakproof they are, how easy they are to clean and how long they last with regular (which means fairly hardcore) family use.

What to look for when shopping for the best sippy cup

line break

The amount of options on the wall of sippy cups at your local mass-market store or even the one at the supermarket can be overwhelming. Zero in on the main things you need:

✔️ An age-appropriate cup: Companies consider their age grading carefully. If a bottle is marketed for 12 months and up, it's probably too difficult for a 6-month-old to hold. And if it's for 3 years and up, the straw might be a little hard on the mouth of a toddler who is 1 or 2 years old. This means you might keep switching out sippy cups as your baby grows, and that's all good.

✔️ Something your little one can drink out of: This, unfortunately, requires some trial and error. A baby who has only been breastfed or has had some combination of breast and bottle might be a little thrown by a spout or straw. Eventually, though, they really do get it.

✔️ A sippy you can easily clean: Not to freak you out, but straws and spouts and seals and valves can all get a little gross. The fewer the pieces, the easier a sippy cup may be to scrub. See our box below on cleaning your sippy cups.

✔️ Kid appeal: There's a reason why so many sippy cups have the Paw Patrol characters or Disney princesses; kids have strong opinions! The cups on our list are based on performance rather than character popularity, but many do come in great colors or fun designs, such as these animal versions of our top Munchkin choice. Once your child is heading to Kindergarten, cede more of the control to them so they can feel good about breaking out their stainless steel Moana water bottle or Peppa Pig straw bottle .

How to clean a sippy cup

line break

Just like adult tumblers and travel mugs , sippy cup lids and crevices can begin to harbor mold if they are not carefully cleaned and thoroughly dried.

Your first line of defense is taking them completely apart and running your sippy cups through the dishwasher — usually it's recommended to keep them on the top rack. A dishwasher basket can keep straws and spouts from falling to the bottom of your dishwasher.

Regularly scrubbing the areas that the dishwasher can't reach is highly recommended, too, says Carolyn Forté , director of the Home Care & Cleaning Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute . "Totally disassemble the sippy-cup parts and scrub all the pieces by hand in hot, soapy water," she says.

Special bottle and straw brushes can help, too. You could even use a steam sterilizer to blast the cup parts with heat and get them sanitized, but check the fine print — not all plastic sippy cups can take that kind of heat.

Whichever method of cleaning you choose, make sure all parts are completely dry before reassembling the cup — that's the final mold-busting step.

Why trust Good Houskeeping?

line break

For more than 100 years, the pros at the Good Housekeeping Institute have been guiding consumers to quality products they can safely use with their families. We rank appliances such as the best blenders , home goods such as the best kids' mattresses and personal care items like the best women's deodorants plus much, much more.

This guide to the best sippy cups was compiled by contributing writer Jessica Hartshorn , who covered the juvenile product market for American Baby magazine for 17 years and Parents magazine for 10 years. She's a mom of two now-big kids, so many GH staffers with younger kids pitched in to recommend their current favorite cups, including Chief Technologist & Executive Technical Director Rachel Rothman , Nutrition Lab Director Stefani Sassos and Textiles, Paper & Apparel Lab Executive Director Lexie Sachs . Primarily, however, this list is based on in-Lab testing notes and extensive feedback from our panel of consumer testers .

She has been to Bali, Lombok, Australia, Japan, France, Switzerland, Germany, South Africa, Namibia, and many other beautiful destinations.

  • For younger toddlers (aged 1-3) we highly recommend the Safety 1st Jive car seat.
  • Convertible, slim enough for plane seats, and lightweight

Best Toddler Travel Harness

  • For older toddlers (aged 3 years+) we personally loved using a travel harness as it is just so much easier to pack and carry.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids

  • Safe (with parental controls) tablet for kids aged 3 – 7 to use.
  • Includes 1 year of Amazon Kids+ – a digital subscription designed for kids to safely learn, grow and explore. 
  • 12-Hour Battery

Inflatable Travel Foot Rest Pillow

Inflatable Travel Foot Rest Pillow

  • We used these on so many planes to make a flat area for our youngest to sleep.
  • Our trick (for using it on planes that don’t allow it) is to only blow it up when the lights go dark (and the flight attendants stop walking around so much). And then pop down the tray table (we pop our little one’s feet on the inflatable) over the inflatable to hide it.

Fun N' Fly Foldable Travel Tray

Fun N’ Fly Foldable Travel Tray

  • Such a clever way to prevent all your kid’s toys from rolling off the tray table on the plane.
  • Fits most standard airline tray tables
  • Mesh pockets for crayons and pens, a cup holder, and a folding front panel for comfort.

Best Travel Gear for Toddlers to Get Around Easily

Let’s look at travel equipment for 1-5 year-olds that makes moving from point A to B easier.

Here is a list of our favorite toddler travel essentials that you should not leave your home without.

1. A Lightweight Travel Stroller (GP Pockit) with a Gate Check Bag

best travel cup for 3 year old

You will definitely need a lightweight stroller. We all know that toddlers love their freedom and independence but also get tired quickly from running around.

One of the best travel strollers is the Gb Pockit Air .

This stroller is lightweight (it weighs only 10.4 lbs) and foldable (yes, it can fit in the overhead compartments on trains and planes). It is one of the smallest folded strollers that I’ve seen.

Gb Pockit Air All-Terrain

It is perfect for kids up to 4 years of age (or 55 lbs. in weight).

Not only do I love the price of this stroller (plus how small it folds up), but it also has a mesh back which is brilliant for hotter countries. It is breathable and helps to keep your little one comfy.

The stroller is easy to push (even with older kids in it). It’s a smooth ride (it has great rubber wheels) and turning the corner is easy.

And best of all, it is pretty affordable compared to competitor travel strollers such as the Babyzen YoYo .

I do think that the canopy is a bit smaller than what I personally like. And I really wish it had a stroller strap to make it easier to carry whilst folded.

But otherwise, this is such a great stroller and at a fantastic price.

It really is worth the investment!

Protect your Stroller With A Stroller Bag

Minne Baby Stroller Travel Bag

The one negative of the GP Pockit stroller is that it doesn’t have an easy way to carry it whilst folded. So this carry bag is essential as it has straps so you can pop it on your back.

Too often these days do they take you out of the airport and make you climb up the stairs from the runway up to the plane.

So having the stroller on your back so you can carry your toddler is essential.

It is also handy if you might prefer to gate-check it.

That way, you don’t have to try to carry the stroller and your toddler together with your carry-on bags onto a plane (especially a hassle when you have to leave the airport and climb stairs to get into the plane).

We prefer to gate-check our stroller (when possible – check with your airline).

That means you can use the stroller throughout the airport and then check it at the ticket desk a little prior to boarding the plane.

Some airlines will have large clear bags that you can pop your stroller in, but they are thin plastic bags that don’t offer any protection.

We much prefer to buy decent bags, and this specific bag is so convenient as it has backpack straps so you can pop it on your back and have your hands free for your toddler.

This specific bag is compatible with the Gb Pockit strollers; it is airline certified and is available in black.

TIP: Not planning many trips in the future and don’t want to invest in a stroller specifically for travel? You can also rent a stroller in the destination you are visiting! BabyQuip is a baby rental company and they have all your baby travel needs sorted. Perfect if you are visiting Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Caribbean and Costa Rica.

2. Tula Ergonomic Toddler Carrier

A toddler or baby carrier is a must for people who want to travel with a toddler.

While I’m not a big fan of having my toddler in a carrier (they are just so heavy, and of course, they want to be up and then down and back up again),  a carrier is essential if you visit a destination that has many stairs.

Tula is one of the few brands that manufacture special carriers, especially for toddlers aged from 2- 6 years (rather than babies), so this carrier is brilliant.

Tula’s Ergonomic Newborn Carrier is available in 38 colors and style options. There are multiple material options available, but my favorite is the 100% cotton ones, they are soft, comfortable and machine-washable.

Incredible I have a (huge) 16 month old and a 3 year old who both fit into this perfectly. It is so confortable and i can easily manage a hike with the 3 year old with this carrier. We also have a hiking backpack carrier which was quite expensive and the tula is so much more comfortable than that. I now feel that we can go anywhere and do anything without fear of my 3 year old asking to be carried. Alison B.   (Read More  Reviews on Baby Tula ) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We especially liked how you can use this carrier as a back carry and front carrier. Your toddler’s body development will not be impacted, thanks to its thoughtful, m-position seat.

It is the best toddler carrier on the market!

3. Clevr Premium Backpack Hiking Child Carrier

Clevr Premium Backpack Hiking Child Carrier

The Premium Backpack Hiking Child Carrier from Clevr is made for those who love hiking.

It features a hip belt and padded straps to ensure safety without compromising comfort.

We especially like the thoughtful inclusion of a sunshade visor and stand.

You get multiple pockets for convenient storage, including an extra-large pocket for diapers.

Toddler Travel Gear for Plane Trips

Next up is the all-dreaded plane trip. Talk about anxiety and nervous feelings! Fortunately, the older your child gets, the easier this bit gets.

Our little one just turned 3, and life is already getting easier when we get on that plane.

Tip:  You might also be interested in checking out the best toddler toys for airplanes  here.

Here is a list of some fabulous airplane accessories for toddlers.

4. Travel Car Seat or Child Airplane Travel Harness

Safety 1st Jive 2-in-1 Convertible Car Seat

It is so vital for your toddler to be in a travel car seat on the plane. According to News.com , it is not just to protect your child from plane crashes, but it is so important for turbulence.

Not only will the car seat protect your child in the case of an emergency, but it will also help keep your toddler sitting still as much as possible (which is great for your sanity).

The best travel car seat we love is the Safety 1st Jive 2-in-1 Convertible Car Seat ( find a different portable car seat on our  best travel convertible car seat  guide here ) when traveling with a toddler on a car or a plane.

This car seat is lightweight (14.25 lb) and slim enough (18″) to fit on plane seats .

It can be used in rear-facing mode for toddlers weighing less than 40 pounds and front-facing mode for toddlers weighing up to 65 pounds.

Would Highly Recommend! I’m very impressed with this carseat. You can’t beat the price, and it’s the same quality as some of the more expensive carseats out there! My kiddo loves how comfy and soft it is. It isn’t bulky at all, and comfortably fits both cup holders on each side… Love it Alison B.   (Read More  Reviews on Walmart ) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

For older toddlers aged 4 years+, you could also consider taking along a travel booster seat (although these can’t be used on planes).

An alternative to a car seat is the airplane toddler harness mentioned below. I would only recommend the travel harness for kids aged 3 years+.

Also, if it is an overnight flight I highly recommend the car seat as our toddler found the safety harness a bit uncomfortable to sleep with. 

Tip: You may also be interested in checking out this foldable travel car seat for 2 year old and/or this car seat for a 3 year old .

Protect Your Car Seat With A Travel Bag

Volkgo Travel Bag

If you are buying the convertible seat, we recommend getting the Volkgo Travel Bag with it.

It is an effective and easy way to travel with your convertible seat. This bag will ensure that your travel seat stays clean (plus it is a great way to sneak in some extra toddler items like a blanket or diapers or clothes).

Also, it is made from nylon, making it water-resistant.

For Older Toddlers – Airplane Harness

toddler airplane harness

If you are taking a flight with your toddler, aged two years or older , you could get a safety harness instead of having to drag a car seat onto the plane.

It takes less than a minute to install and can fit into small bags.

My only negative with the harness is that your toddler will need to sleep upright in their seat. We’ve tried this harness with our young year old, and it was uncomfortable for her, it was much better when she was over 2 years.

You can read our full  CARES harness review  here.

5. Travel Foot Rest Pillow for Kids

Maliton Travel Foot Rest Pillow for Kids

Here is a product we just can’t live without! It might just be one of the handiest flight accessories for toddlers.

We recommend you get the inflatable foot travel pillow if your toddler is going to be on the plane overnight or during nap times.

This inflatable airplane pillow can be placed in the leg rest area to offer a relaxing flat position for your kid to sleep.

Whilst you won’t be able to use the pillow on take-off and landing (and sometimes the air hostesses might ask you to pop it away), it can help your child sleep much better on a long-haul flight.

Note: Not all airlines will allow you to use this product, but we have managed to use it more often than not in planes and it has been a lifesaver.

6. Fun N’ Fly Foldable Travel Tray

Fun N’ Fly Foldable Travel Tray

The next recommendation for toddler flight essentials is a multi-purpose play space that fits perfectly on nearly all standard airplane tray tables.

It can fold and unfold in mere seconds.

The fabulous thing about this table is that it has side barriers, so it is great for toys and crayons, etc. And you can wash it and reuse it as many times as you want.

I got so sick of playing pick-up in the planes, so this truly is fabulous to make life easier.

7. ‘Tux’ Kids Travel Pillow and Travel Blanket Set

‘Tux’ Kids Travel Pillow and Travel Blanket Set

Roamwild offers a three-in-one accessory that functions as a blanket, a comfortable pillow, and a penguin toy .

This is so brilliant because the Tux can be used to transform any armrest into a pillow for your toddler, making it ideal for plane, coach & train travel.

We love to travel with our own blankets. If you want to find a blanket for yourself, then you might also enjoy our list of adult  travel blankets for airplanes  here.

8. Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet

Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet

The next product on our list is not just a travel accessory, but rather a full-fledged tablet.

The Fire HD 10 Kids Tablet serves as the perfect tool for young minds to indulge in more than 20,000 famous games, apps, books, videos, and other educational content.

A 2-year worry-free guarantee backs it. You also get a kid-proof case , which comes in three colors – yellow, pink, and blue.

The tablet is really helpful to kill time waiting in airports or to give you some downtime on the plane to catch a few breaths.

9. Anble Kids Headphones

Anble Kids Headphones

For toddlers who are fond of listening to music, there can be no better travel accessory than the Anble Kids Headphones.

It features a standard 3.5mm jack, which is compatible with nearly all popular smartphones. 

We especially liked its 93-decibel volume restrictor to ensure hearing protection for toddlers.

And did we mention that it has a sharing interface on the right side?

Best Travel Accessories for Toddlers To Keep Everything Organized

Here is our list of some of the best kids’ luggage, bags, and organizers to make life a touch easier.

10. JetKids by Stokke BedBox (Best Air Travel Gear for Toddlers)

Jetkids bedbox

Stokke is a well-known baby and toddler brand, so their JetKids Ride On Suitcase is one of our favorite toddler travel accessories. 

What makes this travel suitcase so great is the built-in flight bed . The suitcase transforms in 5 quick and easy steps once the seatbelt is switched off on the plane.

The suitcase also has space for your toddler’s essentials, so you can pack them away for easy access when not used as a ride-on through the airport.

The suitcase has front swivel wheels, making it super easy to pull along and steer.

Trunki ride on hard case luggage for kids

Trunki is one of the most reputed brands when it comes to products for toddlers.

Trunki is a durable and lightweight suitcase for kids. It is available in two color options –  Terrance (Blue) and Trixie (Pink).

Your toddlers can use it as a riding toy or for storing luggage, and it can hold up to 75 lbs (which should be more than enough to store your toddler’s belongings for a trip).

We only r ecommend this one for older toddlers , as a one-year-old might still be too little for it.

So if you are not sure this is the right pick for your toddler, then we have other fabulous ideas for kids’ luggage on wheels  here.

12. Travel Organizers with Laundry Bag

Shacke Travel Organizers with Laundry Bag

Have you ever found packing your luggage to be stressful? We’ve used packing trips for most of our trips. We use these in our luggage as well as our carry-on bags.

Shacke offers a pack of four space-saving packing cubes that allow you to organize and pack all your essentials systematically. You will no longer have to wrestle with your suitcase to fit in everything you need!

Each of these travel organizers is made from high-quality nylon. The pack is available in nine colors and comes with a laundry bag.

We typically pack all our clothes and items for all three (Andrzej, myself, and our toddler) of us into one suitcase, so I really LOVE to use a specific color for each person, that way I can pull out the right cube of clothes for any of us quickly.

We always popped three of these in our backpack diaper bag.

One was to store toddler travel toys (here is our list of the  best travel toys for toddlers ) and the second was for snacks organized for the plane trip.

And when she was in diapers, we also used a third cube as our diaper caddy – it is so much easier to take a cube into the small plane toilet cubicles rather than a big bulky diaper backpack.

You can read through all our packing cubes reviews  here.

It is one of those travel things for toddlers that no one naturally would think about, but that comes in handy in so many different ways.

13. Mancro Backpack Diaper Bag

I love it! i was just planning a trip with my family and i will take my one year old baby, many people point out that it’s not very good to travel with kids as they get stressed on the flight and may make a lot of sense to some extent, however i think it’s great that you wrote this because you don’t know how much help you’re going to do with this!

Allisson, don’t listen to other people and just follow what works for you. You know what, our little one LOVES to fly and out of 50 flights she was only unsettled on maybe 3. Kids are all different though, some personality types handle things better than other. But I’m sure your little one will LOVE all the quality time that they will get to spend with you once they are there. If you are on facebook, come and join us in our little family travel support group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/wsfamilytravelsupportgroup . You will find it is a great place to come and talk to other parents who can give you some insight into what it is like 😉

I read your tips for travelling with kids. This is one of the best ways to travel with kids and very easy and useful gadgets to carry. I am planning a trip with my family and now I’ll also carry these things with me.

This was possibly one of the most brilliant lists I have seen. Planning a major trip soon, and I’ve added so many of these to my must have list! Thank you!

Thank you very much for your kind words, and sorry for the much-delayed response.

The 7 Best Sippy Cups of 2024

Transition from bottle to cup mess-free with these best sippy cups

We independently evaluate all recommended products and services. If you click on links we provide, we may receive compensation. Learn more .

Verywell Family / Sabrina Jiang

When your little one is beyond the bottle and ready to graduate to a big kid cup, the perfect pit stop between the two is a sippy cup. Children can begin using a sippy cup as early as 6 months old, but you'll want to wait a while longer to fully ditch the bottle. By the time children turn 12 months old, you have one year to "phase out" bottles with a goal of all bottles gone by the time your child hits age 2.

Consider your child's age and readiness before you transition to ensure they're truly ready for the switch. You'll also want to think about the different materials of sippy cups, like glass, plastic, or stainless steel. Certain materials may break more easily or be harder to clean than others.

In order to select the best sippy cups, we researched more than 30 products on the market. We also reviewed guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics on how to transition a child from a bottle to a cup. When reviewing products, we carefully considered material, age recommendations, ease of cleaning, design, and overall value. From silicone and stainless steel options to straw cups, we've rounded up the best sippy cups for your growing baby.

  • How We Selected

Why Trust Verywell Family

Best overall, munchkin miracle 360 trainer cup.

360-degree drinking edge eliminates spills

Easy-to-hold handles

Takes some children longer to learn

Have to maintain lid's silicone ring weekly

Can still leak if seal lid lifted (easy to do for some children)

The Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup earned our top spot because this BPA-free toddler training cup comes with a dentist-recommended, spoutless design that actually forgoes any straw use at all. The 360-degree drinking edge eliminates spills, as the cup automatically seals when the child stops drinking while drinking from anywhere around the rim—just like a regular cup.

It comes with handles that are easy for your child to hold, and with no extra valves or added sippy cup parts , it’s super easy to clean and is top-rack dishwasher safe. For this cup, be sure to inspect the silicone ring on the top of the cup. The ring can be removed and cleaned and should be done periodically to ensure you don't get any mold.

The cup holds 7 ounces of liquid and comes in two different color combination options for children to start using at ages 6 months and up. One note of caution: It may take some kids a little longer to learn how to use this type of cup, but kids who make the transition may have an easier time switching to drinking to open cups. Once your kid gets the hang of these, they can graduate to the model without handles.

How We Selected the Best Sippy Cups

We chose the best sippy cups by researching reviews from customers and competitors, and we studied the features of more than 30 products on the market. We considered price, design, features, ease of cleaning, material, and any age recommendations when deciding our picks. We also reviewed the guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics on when to discontinue the bottle, how to go about the transition, and the best type of sippy cup for a toddler.

Our editors and writers have their fingers on the pulse of the latest trends in the parenting product industry and use their own experience with raising their families and using products to help inform their research.

What to Look for in a Sippy Cup

Age appropriate.

It is important to note that sippy cups are not a required step in the transition from bottle to cup , and some health experts actually recommend starting with open cups. However, sippy cups can be helpful in the transitioning process, so choose what works best for your baby based on their developmental stage and motor skills.

Around 6 months old, your baby can start the transition from a bottle to a sippy cup. Since open and straw cups may have a steep learning curve, starting out with a cup that has a spouted, leak-proof top and easy-grip side will help make the change easier. Once they get the hang of that, straw cups can be introduced between 6 and 9 months. As soon as your baby shows readiness, you can try out spoutless, open cups. Every child and family is different, so experiment with what works for you and aim to transition to exclusively open cups between 12 and 24 months of age.

There are a wide array of sippy cup designs available on the market and, just like baby bottles, your toddler might prefer one type over another. Here are the main types of sippy cups to consider:

Straw: This type of cup comes with a straw attached or included. Typically, you are able to detach the straw completely for easy cleaning. Some kids like this option as it doesn't require them to lift or tilt the cup to drink from it. Others avoid straw sippy cups because they can require extra tools to ensure that they are clean like a straw cleaning brush.

Spout: Likely one of the more common iterations of a sippy cup, this cup has a firm to flexible spout with two to three holes to allow liquids for flow through. The harder spouts can withstand chomping and biting while the softer spouts are closer to a bottle's nipple which some kids will prefer.

Spoutless: Perfect for older toddlers that are ready to transition to a standard cup but aren't quite there yet, the spoutless cup features a technology that allows liquids to flow freely when the cup is tipped upwards but seals close when the cup is right side up to prevent spilling. It is designed to help little ones move towards regular, open top cups but in a safer way.

When your little one is ready to hop from bottle to cup, they will show signs of readiness. Their signs of readiness can include:

  • Sitting up without support
  • Showing interest in the cup
  • Gripping the cup

Generally, a good time to try cups is when you start feeding your baby solid foods, including puree, which is usually around 6 months. If your baby is having a hard time getting a hang of using a sippy cup, don't push the transition. You can take a step back and reintroduce a cup when they are ready.

Sippy cups can be made of silicone, plastic, glass, or stainless steel. When it comes to plastic sippy cups, be sure to try to buy one that is BPA-free. BPA is a chemical found in many plastic products, that at high exposure levels, may be associated with adverse health effects. The FDA banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups in 2012, but it is still good practice to check what materials are in the sippy cups you are looking to purchase.

Silicone sippy cups offer a soft and flexible feel that little ones enjoy while glass and stainless steel are eco-friendly options that last throughout the years.

Frequently Asked Questions

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends introducing cups around the age of 6 months , usually when you start introducing solids into the baby's diet. Every child is different, so it is important to assess their developmental stage and look for signs of readiness including sitting up without support, showing interest in the cup, and gripping the cup.

You can start cup introduction with open cups, but many parents find sippy cups helpful with the transition.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends parents wean their children off the bottle between 12 and 24 months, with the goal of transitioning fully to open cups by 24 months . While you can introduce open cups as early as 6months of age (depending on your baby's motor development and readiness), sippy cups can be helpful during this transition from bottle to cup. In general, you should aim to have your child fully off sippy cups and bottles by two years of age.

Closed cups with straws can be introduced as early as 6 months and used after two years of age as an on-the-go option to reduce spills. Prolonged use of sippy cups and bottles can inhibit proper oral development and lead to dental caries.

Because sippy cups are available in a variety of styles, such as stainless steel or plastic, prices will vary depending on material, size, and additional features. For example, simple plastic sippy cups, such as The First Years Take & Toss Spill-Proof Sippy Cups , will likely cost less than stainless steel sippy cups, like the Munchkin Miracle Stainless Steel 360 Sippy Cup . Additionally, larger bottles may cost more due to more material being used, or sippy cups with additional features, like handles or fun patterns, may also up the cost.

Overall, the prices of sippy cups range from an average of $10 to $25.

The Best Sippy Cups for Babies and Toddlers Transitioning From Bottle or Breast

Our top picks are easy to use and easy to clean.

Parents / Alli Waataja

Sippy cups are the perfect transition drink holder for toddlers who are moving away from the bottle or the breast and starting to take their beverages from a cup. These types of cups are often made of durable materials (for those who may still struggle with grip) and offer a spill or leak-proof lid to keep the contents inside.

“The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends fully transitioning away from the bottle and using cups by the time your child reaches 2 years of age,” according to Cherilyn Cecchini , MD, a board-certified pediatrician and GoodRx contributor. “Sippy cups can serve as a good in between when making this transition from bottle to open cup.”

Because these cups are so essential for little ones ( and their grownups) it’s important to make sure you’re picking the right one for your family. The best sippy cups will be the ones that will be easy to clean, hold up to being dropped or tossed into a diaper bag, and that have a spout or nozzle that won’t get in the way of those growing teeth. 

Our Favorites

Best overall: munchkin miracle 360 trainer cup, best for 6-month-olds: nuk simply natural learner cup.

  • Best for 1-Year-Olds: NUK Fun Grips Cup

Best With Straw: Munchkin Trainer Cup

Best leak proof: re-play no spill sippy cup, best for breastfed babies: munchkin gentle transition cup.

  • Best All-In-One: Grabease Convertible Cup Set
  • Best For Baby-Led Weaning: BraveJusticeKidsCo Teenie Tiny Silicone BLW Cup

Best for Travel: Healthy Sprouts Sippy Cup Lids

  • Best Heavy Duty Option: Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup

Why We Like It: While its edge prevents spills, this cup mimics the sipping action of a real cup, making it easier for children to make that transition later.

But Take Note: A curious kiddo can take the lid off and spill the cup’s contents.

The Munchkin Miracle 360 makes the top of our list because it offers 360 degrees of use. This means it will work for your child whether they’re sitting up or reclined in their seat. Additionally, the design of this model mimics a standard drinking cup, which will make transitioning from a toddler cup to a children’s cup a bit easier. While the Miracle 360 cup is advertised as spill proof, a determined toddler can easily remove the top insert that prevents beverages from pouring out.

The Details:

  • Materials: BPA-free plastic
  • Recommended age: 6 months and up
  • Dishwasher safe? Yes, top rack

Why We Like It: A soft spout mimics bottle nipples, so it’s a great transition cup for younger tots.

But Take Note: The spout design does tend to leak.

Early cup users will have a better time using the NUK Simply Natural Learner cup because the soft spout mimics that which is found on most baby bottles. In addition to having a familiar mouth-feel, the cup also has the two handles that stick out on either side for easy gripping. Available in two different sizes (both 5 and 9 oz), this sippy cup will allow for a smoother transition for infants who have grown used to the bottle but are ready to explore their independence with feeding. Because of the position of the handles and the design of the spout, this cup may be more prone to leaking, so young toddlers could get a bit messy while using it. 

“I’m obsessed with these! I used them for both my kids to help them transition from the bottle to a sippy,” explains parent Amber Masciorini. “At first they would just bite on the Munchkin 360 and didn’t understand it, so this was perfect to teach them and put milk in it.”

  • Dishwasher safe? Yes

Best for 1-Year-Olds: NUK First Essentials Fun Grip Hard Spout Sippy Cup

Why We Like It: Teething kiddos can’t chew through the hard spouts.

But Take Note: These have no handles or measurement markings.

These bite-resistant sippy cups are perfect for teething toddlers (12 months and up) who are chewing their way through their soft topped cups. This hard spout cup comes with flow control valves that will ensure the right amount of liquid comes out each time your child takes a sip. You’ll love them because they are break resistant, but your toddler will love them because they allow them to take control while eating and drinking. 

These cups are designed for older kids and aren’t really formula friendly, since there are no measurement markings on the side for parents and caregivers looking to mix drinks or track ounces. 

  • Recommended age: 12 months and up

Why We Like It: The weighted straw is soft for younger users and allows them to drink while reclined.

But Take Note: It has a lot of nooks and crannies that need to be cleaned thoroughly.

Transitioning a child from a bottle to a sippy cup can be hard because they’ve grown used to making certain movements with their mouths and drinking while reclined. That makes this Munchkin cup a good option. Not only does the weighted straw allow older babies and toddlers to drink in almost any position, but its soft material mimics that of a baby bottle nipple.

Like many baby cups, these need to be thoroughly taken apart to clean to prevent mold and bacteria growth in all of its nooks and crannies. Fortunately, each cup comes with a tool to help make that process a bit easier.

  • Dishwasher safe? Yes, top rack only

Why We Like It: Made from recycled milk jugs, these colorful hard plastic cups are leak proof and quite durable.

But Take Note: Make sure to remove the rubber valve in the spout to wash.

If protecting the environment by reducing your use of plastic is at the top of your list of concerns, you’ll love the Re-Play No Spill Sippy Cup. Each hard-spout cup is made from recycled milk jugs. But it’s not just eco-friendly: The textured plastic is easy for small hands to get a grip, especially when holding cold drinks that cause condensation, and the material is durable enough to withstand teething kids, the dishwasher, the microwave, and the freezer. They come in about 32 different fun colors. What’s more, the cups close tight enough to prevent leaks!

Though they’re relatively easy to clean, there is a rubber valve in the spout that needs to come out to do the most thorough job of it.

  • Materials: BPA-free plastic from recycled milk jugs

Why We Like It: The flexible spout mimics a nipple, or you can begin by using it with bottle nipples.

But Take Note: No replacement spouts are sold.

Parents and caregivers looking to wean their baby off of the breast and get them accustomed to a sippy cup are likely to have good luck with this gentle transition cup. It has a soft, flexible spout that will make an easier transition for babies who are accustomed to the breast. (If you want an even slower transition, this cup also works with Munchkin Latch nipples .) We also love that it comes with covers, to protect spouts and nipples from dirt and germs when taking it from place to place. Plus, once your child has mastered grasping the cup by the handles, you can remove them to make it look more like a big kids’ cup. 

Unfortunately, you cannot order replacement tops for this cup. So if your baby chews the spout or breaks the valve, you’ll need to purchase a whole new cup.

  • Recommended age: 4 months and up

Best All-in-One: Grabease Convertible Cup Set

Help your child move from drinking from a bottle or breast to using a cup with the Grabease Spoutless Sippy Cup. This all-in-one 4-ounce cup works through several different learning stages by giving your child the option to use it with a silicone lid and silicone straw first, then with just a lid, and finally as a regular cup with no lid. According to the brand, the clear cup also helps kids learn about sipping from cups, because they get the visual feedback of seeing the liquid as they drink it—which makes sense to us. It’s also great that you can take apart all three pieces for easy cleaning and sanitizing, and it comes with a brush for cleaning the straw. Plus, the set includes a 1.5-ounce mini cup, so kids can get in a little more practice without the lid.

Just remember to keep an eye on your child while they’re using the cup. It is not leak-proof and if it’s dropped (or let’s be real, thrown) it will spill.

  • Materials: BPA-free plastic and silicone

Best for Baby-Led Weaning: BraveJusticeKidsCo Teenie Tiny Silicone BLW Cup

Why We Like It: These open cups with weighted bottoms help kids learn to sip without a spout.

But Take Note: Their small size means more refilling, and they don’t come in many fun colors.

Improve motor function and help your child meet mealtime milestones with a Teenie Tiny Silicone Developmental Cup from BraveJusticeKidsCo. These weighted cups come in two different varieties, one with handles for younger kids still working on grasping their cups and one without for kids who have better control of their fine motor skills. It lives up to the teenie tiny name and can hold only 2 ounces of your little one’s favorite beverage. That’s a good thing, considering that they don’t have any lid, so there’s less for them to spill. But that also means you’ll probably be refilling it a lot more frequently.

While these cups are promoted as being good for kids who are following the baby-led weaning method they are accessible for any child making the transition from bottles or breast to cup. The silicone texture and shape are very pleasing to the eye and touch, but these cups only come in colors like taupe, mauve, and “blue fusion.”

  • Materials: Silicone
  • Recommended age: 18 months and up

Why We Like It: These very portable lids are great to take on the road, or when your kitchen just doesn’t have the space for dozens of extra plastic cups. 

But Take Note: Frequent use could cause tearing.

No sippy cup? No problem! With these silicone lids, parents and caregivers can turn any cup (or small jar) into a sippy cup. They have a stretchy opening that will cover most standard-size drinking cups and a soft spout top that will be easy on your growing child’s gums. People who don’t have a lot of kitchen cabinet space can store these instead of all those extra cups. Plus they’re great for carrying around in your bag to use at restaurants or for travel.

While the brand claims they’re tear-proof, frequent use may stretch them out and cause them to rip. It’s a good thing they come in packs of five are backed by a 12-month guarantee.

  • Recommended age: not listed

Best Heavy Duty Option: Munchkin Miracle Stainless Steel 360 Sippy Cup

Why We Like It: It’s a durable, insulated version of the plastic cup we love.

But Take Note: The heavier cup is best for kids 12 months old and up.

If you’re looking for a sippy cup that offers all the benefits of a training cup while being made from a durable material, you might want to check out the stainless steel version of the Munchkin Miracle 360. It offers the same benefits of the original (spoutless and leakproof) but with an insulated finish. 

The 10-ounce cup is better suited to toddlers (12 months or older) because of how heavy and hard to grasp it can be.

  • Materials: BPA-free plastic and stainless steel

Best Dishwasher Safe Option: ezpz Mini Cup + Straw Training System

Why We Like It: The all-silicone cup gets completely clean in the dishwasher, and it’s ready to use without lid and straw.

But Take Note: It’s not leak-proof.

Designed by a pediatric feeding specialist, the ezpz Mini Cup offers the best of two worlds, a soft straw for proper oral development with the ability to transition into an opened top cup, for the price of one. This 4-ounce cup keeps portion sizes smaller, which makes things more manageable for when toddlers are drinking out of the cup without a lid, while teaching children everything they need to know about the next phase of self-feeding. Dr. Betty Choi, a mother, pediatrician, and medical writer based in California, likes these cups because they’re “great for building eye-hand coordination and autonomy.”

Like other convertible straw cups, this is not leak proof, so look out for messy times ahead. On the bright side, this all-silicone cup is a good option for anyone who tries to avoid putting plastic in the dishwasher, and it doesn’t have many crevices for dirt and mold to hide in.

  • Recommended age: 9 months and up

How We Selected the Best Sippy Cups

We looked at the dozens and dozens of sippy cups on the market right now, considering babies’ and toddlers’ needs, plus the needs of their busy grown-ups, in order to come up with this list. We also talked to experts like mom, pediatric dietitian and lactation consultant Krystyn Parks , MS, RD, IBCLC, to find out what parents and caregivers need to know about picking the right sippy cup for their child. “Current best recommendations are to start with an open cup around 6 months or so,” she says, adding that babies don’t have “high water needs” at that point and it’s more about learning the skill. If you want an open cup, we recommend starting with something very small, like the 2-ounce cup from BraveJusticeKidsCo .

While Parks says that traditional hard spout sippy cups aren’t really recommended by experts anymore, we chose some hard spout options, as well as soft spouts and straws, because as parents, we know that sometimes you just have to choose what works over what’s ideal.

Factors to Consider

Type of cup.

There are a few different styles of cups to choose from, including straw, spout, and trainer cups. It’s up to parents and caregivers whether they have the patience and time to introduce open cups at 8 months old, as some experts suggest. A good compromise is the Munchkin Miracle 360 cup . You may have a lot of trial and error to figure out what your kid will use, what’s easiest to clean, and what won’t leak or spill all over the house and car.

“Straw cups can also be introduced at [6 months],” Parks says. “Many people prefer to wait until their baby has mastered open cups until introducing straw cups, but I find that many babies can learn both at the same time.” 

For younger babies, you can choose a cup with a soft surface in the area where they will put their mouth so that the material adapts to their mouth instead of the other way around. Silicone and other soft or BPA-free plastics are a good pick when it comes to the rim, straw, or spout. Parks also says that it’s helpful to remember that cups that are heavy on the bottom are harder to tip over and may spill less than others. 

“It is important to look for sturdy sippy cups that aren’t made with materials soft enough for a baby with teeth to bite pieces off and potentially choke,” according to Michael Stamps , MD, FAAP, Phoenix Children's Pediatrics Paradise Valley. “Look for a sippy cup with no small, extra pieces—just the cup and a lid that securely snaps or screws on.” 

Ease of cleaning

Children’s cups are prone to mold when they’re not thoroughly cleaned, which makes having a cup that can be completely disassembled for cleaning important. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you have cleaning accessories that will help you get to those hard-to-reach spots (like inside straws and spouts). Many sippy cups will come with a separate brush to aid in these cleanings. 

If you’re looking for something you can toss into the dishwasher when you’re done you’ll want to rule out options that are hand wash only.

Your child’s preference

Every child is different, so you may need to try a few varieties of cup before you find the one that works best for your baby. Fortunately, sippy cups aren’t too big of an investment so you may be able to try a few different types without breaking the bank.

Your Questions, Answered

What sippy cup do dentists recommend.

Most occupational/speech therapists recommend against the hard nozzle sippy cups, according to Parks. “They aren't great for teeth and don't use a ‘mature’ sucking pattern like we would use drinking from a cup.” 

The American Dental Association (ADA) makes the following suggestions for shopping for sippy cups:

  • Skip “no-spill” valves, as they require sucking rather than sipping
  • Two handles are preferable
  • Look for a weighted base to avoid spills

What is the best sippy cup to transition from a bottle?

When it comes to weaning from the bottle, anything that offers an easy grip (like the cups with double handles) is most important. Some babies need to start with a softer spout, the NUK Simply Natural Learner Cup , but others can head straight to straws, hard spouts, or even open cups.

Lauren Wellbank is a mother of three small children who has purchased (and thrown away) tons of sippy cups over the years. The Munchkin Miracle 360 Cup still remains a family favorite nearly eight years later. Lauren has been writing about parenting and parenting gear since 2016 and knows how important it is to be able to make well informed decisions about feeding essentials.

If you’re between a bottle and an open cup, the sippy cup may be your new bff., by babylist team.

Pinterest logo.

When it’s time for your little one to make the transition from breast or bottle to drinking from a cup, the sippy cup will be your new BFF. Used as the go-between after the nipple but before a regular ol’ cup, the sippy cup helps babies learn to drink with way less mess—which is something we’re always all for.

When To Introduce a Sippy Cup

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends switching your little one over to a cup somewhere between one and two years of age. But just like with solid food, there’s a learning curve that comes along with using a cup, and an open-top option can be a messy way to start.

Sippy cups, also known as transition cups, feature a lid to minimize spills and can withstand being tossed from a high chair or stroller . Some even stay leak-free when turned upside-down, and are also convenient to take on the go. (Just keep in mind that many won’t fit in cup holders because of their wide bases, which are designed to minimize toppling over when they’re set down.)

You’ll know your little one is sippy-cup ready when they are able to sit up in a high chair, as early as six months old.

It’s also completely fine to skip the sippy cup altogether and go right to an open cup. You’ll need some patience and a whole lot of paper towels, but it’s completely doable and some parents even prefer to go this route.

What Type of Sippy Cup is Best?

Sippy cups come in four different styles:

  • Flat lid (also called 360s because the liquid comes out all around the sides of the lid when lips press on it)

Sippy cups also come in a variety of materials. While plastic continues to dominate the market, there are other options with different benefits, too.

  • Plastic is lightweight and typically less costly than cups of other materials. But, even if it’s BPA-free (which you should verify it is), there’s still concerns about leaching to consider.
  • Stainless steel eliminates the issues surrounding plastics and is easy to clean and very durable. Some stainless steel sippy cups are even insulated to keep milk or other liquids cold.
  • Glass also bypasses plastic issues, but is obviously a heavier material and breakable. Look for glass cups with silicone sleeves to make them less slippery and more shatterproof.
  • Silicone is used in most transition cups that have soft spouts, straws, sleeves or valves. It’s a soft, pliable material that won’t injure your baby’s gums when gnawed on. The downside? You’ll have to replace the parts of the cup, or the entire cup, once they become too chewed-up.

Are Sippy Cups Bad?

Although there’s no official stance from the AAP on the issue, it is important to note that many experts—especially speech therapists and dentists—caution against too much reliance on sippy cups, and especially on cups that feature spouts instead of straws. That’s because of two main reasons:

  • The convenience of a sippy cup may mean your little one may want to carry it around all day. This can cause tooth decay (especially if there’s milk in the cup) and can also affect your child’s hunger level for real foods.
  • Extensive use of spouted cups may cause oral motor delays. If your little one is exclusively drinking from a spouted cup, they may not learn to develop what experts call a “mature swallow pattern.”

Neither of these things means you’ll need to ditch the sippy cup completely, of course. But they are important to keep in mind when you’re thinking about what type of cup to purchase and how you use it throughout the day with your baby or toddler.

How Do You Clean a Sippy Cup?

We can’t lie to you—sippy cups rank right up there next to humidifiers as one of parents’ most-complained-about items of baby gear to keep clean. Packed with nooks and crannies that just love to hang onto milk and other liquid residue, sippy cups can be a breeding ground for mold and other types of bacteria if not cleaned properly, so it’s important to be diligent about the cleaning process.

Be sure to follow the cleaning directions for your specific cup. Some can go in the top rack of the dishwasher, while others are hand wash only. You’ll also want to have a good bottle brush on hand and a cleaning set to get deep into those hard-to-reach spots.

Have a microwave bottle sterilizer ? Don’t put it away just yet—you may be able to use it with your sippy cup. And if the cleaning instructions indicate it’s okay, you can also put some sippy cups in a pot of boiling water for five minutes to sterilize them as needed.

Updated May 10, 2024

Choosing the best straw cup for toddlers might as well be an Olympic sport. As the mom of two kids, I know the costly and time-consuming search all too well. There are various models of straw cups for toddlers on the market, so how can you be sure which one is the absolute best?

To help you find the best straw cups for toddlers, we did some testing. Based on our experience, we found these to be the best straw cups for toddlers available right now.

A blonde child sips milk through an OXO Tot Transitions straw cup with a blue lid.

The OXO Tot Transitions cup didn't leak through any of our drop tests.

  • Capacity: 6 ounces
  • Dishwasher safe

Of the 10 straw cups for toddlers we tested, the OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup with Removable Handles is our top choice for several reasons. For starters, this is the only straw cup for toddlers that didn’t exude any liquid during our drop tests, nor did it leak when left on its side for over 12 hours. This straw cup for toddlers also survived more than a few significant tosses from my toddler without a single drop of liquid escaping. As lame and unexciting as it makes me sound, I was actually sad to stop using this cup during the testing process because of how well it worked.

The six-ounce straw cup for toddlers also has many appealing features that both parents and kids alike will appreciate. The OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup for toddlers has removable handles that don’t slide around during use, and there are measurement marks on the exterior of the cup, so you can easily keep track of how much your toddler is drinking.

Another perk? The straw comes in two easy-to-clean pieces that are simple to take apart and wash. While this entire straw cup for toddlers and all its parts are dishwasher safe, I found that it was more effective (and required minimal time) to clean the straw parts with a small bristle brush.

Finally, another factor that set this straw cup for toddlers apart from other similar options we tested was the build quality. Some of the plastic cups we tested were easy to bend by squeezing the center. However, the OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup for toddlers did not bow at all. The cup feels like it’s constructed of strong plastic, and if you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, this straw cup for toddlers is made without BPAs, phthalates, and PVC.

My only complaint about this straw cup for toddlers is that, at first, my son had a hard time figuring out how to make liquid flow from the straw. That's because the spill-proof straw doesn't dispense any liquid unless contracted—a win for parents who want to toss this in their purse or bag without worry.

The Nuby Clik-it Flex Straw cup was easy to clean and had minimal leaking.

  • Capacity: 10 ounces

At around $8 for two cups, the Nuby Clik-it FlexStraw Cups are the best-value straw cups for toddlers we tested. The cleaning process is a cinch since there are only four parts to wash, including the cup itself.

Similar to the straw set up on the OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup for toddlers, liquid only comes out of the Nuby No-Spill cup when pressure is applied to the straw. There were a few small leaks here and there when liquid pooled up in the upper portion of the straw, but overall, this 10-ounce straw cup for toddlers is a pretty safe bet if you're looking for an affordable straw cup for toddlers with minimal leaks.

We also loved the hourglass design, which is made from BPA-free plastic, as it makes it easy for little hands to grip and sip. To sum it all up: This straw cup for toddlers isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty dang close, especially for the money.

The Pura Kiki is vacuum-insulated and features a non-toxic silicone spout.

  • Capacity: 9 ounces
  • Hand wash recommended

We tested a total of two stainless steel cups and the Pura Kiki won us over for several reasons. It’s thoroughly insulated, so you don’t have to worry about milk spoiling or water going warm after a few hours if you forget to put it in the refrigerator. The bottle features a soft, non-toxic silicone spout that’s gentle on developing palates.

This straw cup for toddlers is the most expensive one we've tested, but it's worth the $26 price tag if you're looking for a non-toxic, vacuum-insulated straw cup for toddlers that feels like it's going to last a while. The interior of the nine-ounce bottle features measuring marks, so you can keep tabs on how many ounces of liquid your toddler is consuming.

Despite being mostly made of stainless steel, it’s still lightweight enough for small toddlers to use with ease. One special feature we really liked is the exterior silicone sleeve that helps keep condensation at bay and helps keep the straw cup for toddlers from becoming dented when thrown on a hard surface.

Be warned, though, that this straw cup for toddlers will leak if you’re not careful. While no liquid managed to leak during our overnight tests, small amounts of liquid tended to gather in the top portion of the straw after my son took a drink. When he threw the bottle, the liquid left in the top portion of the straw sent more than a few droplets flying all over the room. The saving grace here is the stretchy food-grade silicone cover that’s easy to pull on and off. As long as that’s in place, you don’t have to worry about leaks.

Other Straw Cups For Toddlers We Tested

Product image of Skip Hop Zoo Stainless Steel Little Kid Straw Bottle

  • Capacity: 12 ounces

Skip Hop is known for its fun and fashionable kid’s products, and the stainless steel Skip Hop Kids Water Bottle With Straw is no exception. If you're looking for an insulated cup that holds a lot of liquid, the Skip Hop Straw Cup for toddlers is a great choice. It comes in fun colors featuring bright and cheery cartoon animal designs, and the silicone sleeve keeps condensation from becoming a slippery problem for tiny palms.

This straw cup for toddlers comes with a carrying strap that’s attached underneath the lid, so you can attach it to backpacks or strollers or just use it as a different way to hold the bottle. My toddler preferred to carry this straw cup for toddlers around without the attachment, but it only takes a second to remove the strap (and you’ll want to do so before cleaning to avoid getting it wet.).

Although this straw cup for toddlers didn’t leak while left on its side overnight, it didn’t do so well when my son tipped it upside down and began to shake it. Water went everywhere, leaking from a very tiny hole in the mouthpiece, and we had a mess on our hands. However, we didn’t notice any leakage during our drop tests. So, as long as your toddler doesn’t flip it upside down and shake it, you should be in the clear.

Product image of The First Years Take & Toss Spill-Proof Straw Cups

These straw cups for toddlers are intended for toddlers ages 18 months and up, and while my son is just three months shy of that, he had no trouble at all using these cups. In fact, my envious 6-year-old thought these straw cups for toddlers were “so cool” and decided to join her little bro in testing them. We love these straw cups for toddlers because they’re affordable, and you can use them with kids of all ages.

These straw cups for toddlers really do live up to their “Take & Toss” namesake because they are ideal for filling on the go when you’re eating out, on vacation, or at the park. The design is very similar to kid’s cups you’d get at a restaurant. However, Take & Toss cups aren’t great for throwing in the diaper bag when filled up with liquid since there’s no way to cover the straw. That said, for the most part, the lid stayed in place when we threw these straw cups for toddlers on the ground and they didn’t leak overnight. We did have a few times where the lid exploded off if it hit the floor the right way, which sent liquid everywhere.

One concern I have is the hard plastic straw. Most of the other straw cups for toddlers we tested have soft, bendable straws, but I do worry what might happen if my little one were to fall forward with a firm straw like this one in their mouth.

Another hang up about this straw cup for toddlers is the assembly. It’s easy to take apart, but, after filling it with liquid, make sure to put the lid on first and then the straw. If you place the lid on with the straw, liquid shoots straight up out of the straw and makes a bit of a mess. It’s an easy fix, but something to be aware of if you plan to use these straw cup for toddlers.

Overall, the Take and Toss cups are great for travel or storing in the diaper bag for those times when you forget your child’s usual drinking vessel.

However, during our overnight tests, a small pool of water seeped out. We also noticed that when the bottle is full, liquid sometimes emerges from the straw. One benefit this cup offers is that it comes with a bristle brush to help clean all the nooks and crannies in the lid and straw parts.

This straw cup for toddlers is a fine choice for those who feel a loyalty to the Dr. Brown’s brand, but there was nothing terribly remarkable or memorable about this cup.

Product image of Thermos Funtainer, 12oz

We had high hopes for the 12-ounce Thermos Funtainer, but this bottle was a big ol’ mess.

This straw cup for toddlers had the most leakage when left on its side overnight. The waterworks don’t stop there. While only a small amount of liquid escaped during our drop tests, the flood gates opened almost immediately once we shook the Funtainer from side-to-side. The locking lid is a nice feature, but we think this cup is better suited for older toddlers who are less inclined to throw or play with it.

Despite being one of the larger straw cups we tested, it’s still petite enough to store in the cabinets without taking up a large footprint. We also liked that the bulk of the straw cup for toddlers is made from stainless steel, making it a good option for those looking to live a more plastic-free life.

Overall, the Funtainer feels very solidly built and like it can withstand everyday wear and tear.

Lots of fun, kid-friendly patterns

Product image of Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip-it Reflex

At the start of the testing process, the Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip-it REFLEX was my immediate favorite. It’s larger than most other straw cups for toddlers we tested. However, the middle portion of the bottle has a rubbery texture, making it easy to grip.

This straw cup for toddlers is very lightweight, has a soft spout, and, like the Thermos Funtainer, holds 12-ounces of liquid. Most of all, my toddler really enjoyed using this straw cup for toddlers. Maybe it was the bright green color and cactus design, but he took a real interest in it.

While liquids can easily pass through the straw without much effort, the design of this bottle is flawed. Now, before I proceed, I want to give the disclaimer that this straw cup for toddlers in no way, claims to be spill-proof when the cap cover is not in place. I learned that firsthand as my son turned the cup upside down and doused himself in water on the way to the grocery store one afternoon. I’m not saying I don’t expect some liquid to leak, but the fact that he was able to empty the full 12-ounces in less than 10 minutes is impressive—and troubling if the bottle were to get left open on its side.

The straw cup for toddlers didn’t leak when we had the no-spill cap on, but the cap didn’t always lock the first time around. It took some extra effort, on occasion, to seal it shut.

Additionally, the cleaning process was pretty seamless until we got to the mouthpiece. While the straw popped out with no problem, it took me several tries to pop the mouthpiece out of place before I could clean it. This straw cup for toddlers definitely took more effort to clean than other straw cups for toddlers we tested.

Product image of Boon Snug Straw

Much like The First Years: Take & Toss Spill-Proof Straw Cups for toddlers, the Boon Snug Straw with Cup isn’t great for schlepping around when full of liquid. But it’s great to fill up for your toddler to use when you’re out and about or eating a meal at the dinner table.

This straw cup for toddlers utilizes a plastic cup base and a flexible silicone cover for the top. The coolest feature about this straw cup for toddlers is that the silicone cover stretches to fit most cup sizes (up to 2.5-inches to 3.75-inches diameter). This gives you the option to bring just the lid and hard plastic straw with you and use it when you’re out and about, so your child can easily drink from any cup without making a big mess. The entire cup can be tossed in the dishwasher, so cleaning is a breeze.

To my surprise, this straw cup for toddlers didn’t leak when left on its side overnight or during drop tests. However, it’s not perfect. My son had an easy time pushing down on the silicone topper, which resulted in water erupting from the straw. While it was a fun time for him, it was a mess for me. He also enjoyed pulling the straw in and out of the cup top. For this reason, we think this straw cup for toddlers works better for older toddlers who are less likely to remove the straw for fun.

The biggest benefit of this straw cup for toddlers is that it has a weighted straw, just like the Dr. Brown's Baby's First Straw Cup. This feature allows your toddler to tilt the straw cup for toddlers in almost any direction while still being able to drink from it.

I found this straw cup for toddlers required more effort to clean than the others because of the tiny straw parts. However, it did come with its own cleaning brush and can be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher, which is a big help for expediting the sanitation process.

The straw cup for toddlers is made from BPA-free plastic, although it felt flimsy when compared to our best overall pick. I made the mistake of not properly locking the lid before handing it to my son, which almost instantly prompted a big mess. The straw cup for toddlers doesn't leak when you turn it upside down and only leaks slightly when left on its side overnight.

My biggest recommendation to anyone using this straw cup for toddlers: Make sure you turn the lid until you hear the click sound. Even if it feels secure, keep tightening the lid. Doing so ensures it’s actually locked into place and doesn’t just look like it. Lesson learned.

How We Tested

Hi, I’m Rachel Murphy. But, most of the time, I’m better known as “mom” to my son, Arlo, age 15 months, and my daughter, Reese, age 6. Ever since I became pregnant with my daughter over six years ago, I’ve spent countless hours researching children’s products, searching for the best options for my family. So, rest assured you’re in good hands (because I don’t want a leaky straw cup for toddlers any more than you do).

When my son turned one earlier this year, his pediatrician advised us to ditch the bottle, bypass sippy cups altogether, and opt for a cup with a straw. I knew the routine well, having done this exact thing with my daughter nearly five years prior. But, given the large time gap, I was curious to see if there were any new or improved straw cups for toddlers. In my previous experience with straw cups for toddlers, one of the biggest design flaws I can remember is the leakage. So, this time around, I’m on a quest to find out which straw cup for my toddler is going to cause me the least amount of headaches and messes to clean up.

My toddler and I spent the better part of a month testing 10 different straw cups for toddlers that are suitable for children between the ages of 12 months and 36 months old. To identify which cups to test, I researched the top straw cups for toddlers from well-known kids companies like OXO, Boon, Skip Hop, and others, and combed through Amazon, looking for recommendations from other parents on well-rated straw cups for toddlers.

We didn’t take it easy on these straw cups for toddlers, either. My son loves to throw things, particularly his bottle during mealtime. We tossed bottles full of milk and water across the room, dropped them from waist height onto hard tile floors, and shook each cup vigorously from side to side to see if any liquid (and, in some cases, how much liquid) escaped from the cup.

Cleaning is another pesky problem with straw cups for toddlers and an important factor in determining which of these straw cups for toddlers reigns supreme. There are so many tiny parts, especially with straw cups. Much like a water bottle you’d take to the gym, most of the straw cups for toddlers we tested have a minimum of two straw pieces, so it’s not always as simple as tossing these bad boys right into your dishwasher. All but two of the cups required a bristle brush for a thorough cleaning. But, some of the cups do come with their own cleaning tool, so at least you don’t have to shell out extra cash for an additional product.

We took other essential details into consideration, too, like how easy it is to seal and unseal each straw cup, affordability, the construction of each bottle, portability and storage, and any special features.

What You Should Know About the Best Straw Cups For Toddlers

When to introduce a straw cup for toddlers, how to clean the best straw cups for toddlers, opt for a straw cup for toddlers with a soft spout, if possible.

Hard spouts may cause harm to the inside of a toddler’s mouth if they fall forward when drinking from the cup. For developing gums, it’s best to choose a softer spout that is less likely to cause damage in the event the child inserts the spout too quickly into their mouth or falls face down while holding the straw cup.

Are Straw Cups For Toddlers Better For Their Teeth?

Straw cups for toddlers are a great way for kids to build strength and develop oral motor skills and better swallowing patterns. Having better muscles around the tongue and mouth will also protect their teeth alignment. Since the best straw cups for toddlers will prevent tooth decay and speech issues, they’re a better option than sippy cups.

At What Age Should Kids Be Able to Drink From a Straw Cup For Toddlers?

Toddlers can start drinking from straw cups around nine months old. This transition depends on how ready they are to begin learning how to drink from a straw, which will vary per toddler. Parents will usually have their toddlers start doing this around the same time that their baby begins eating solid foods.

Be sure to monitor your toddler the first few times they use the straw cup to ensure they use it safely.

Straw Cups For Toddlers are Made From a Variety of Materials

If you’re committed to reducing the amount of plastic in your house and around your baby, opt for a sippy cup that’s made from stainless steel.

Water bottles for toddlers can be made with a few different materials, such as:

Stainless steel. These straw cups for toddlers tend to be heavier in weight, but are more durable. They’re the best water bottle for toddlers when it comes to keeping cold drinks cold, and hot drinks hot. They have a metallic taste and dent when dropped, but they’re overall the best material when it comes to quality. Polypropylene. This is a BPA-free plastic material that is safer than most plastics, making it ideal for making straw cups for toddlers. It’s also water resistant, so it won’t wear out from use that easily. Glass. Glass straw cups for toddlers are heavier in weight, so they may not be easy for babies to hold. They’re easy to clean and are higher in quality, but they may not be ideal for smaller kids. Silicone rubber. This is a very durable, flexible material that is great for making straw cups for toddlers. It also resists moisture and heat, so it can sustain multiple uses.

The 14 Best Travel Toys For Toddlers

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

We’re living in a new golden age of road trips, and no matter where you’re headed, the road can feel long when your travel buddy is a toddler. A little prep can make all the difference. First, bring all the snacks. Then, don’t leave home without a slew of toys to entertain them for the haul. The best travel toys for toddlers keep them busy by engaging their senses — all while having fun. And don’t worry: I kept the noisier toys at grandma’s house and off of this list.

A solid travel toy for a toddler needs to have a certain busyness factor. Hands-on toys like puzzles or pads for coloring and drawing hold a little one’s attention. Tactile toys that may have buckles or buttons , pop-ups, or building designs tend to keep kiddos engaged longer — and they'll also be great at helping them practice fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and/or problem-solving. Open-ended toys that can be played with in multiple ways will also go the distance in holding their interest over several hours or days on the road.

Lightweight toddler toys that don’t make a mess or come with fewer pieces are clear favorites when you’re on the go or traveling in tight quarters, and some portable toys come with storage bags or containers to hold multiple pieces. It’s worth noting that there can be big developmental differences between younger and older toddlers, so I've included a range of toys suited for toddlers of all ages. Just note: Small parts can be a choking hazard for children under three, so be sure to check the age recommendations for each toy.

Pro tip: Save the surprise! Don't dole out the toy until your trip has started — it only adds to the toy's appeal — and it'll buy you more entertainment time when you need it most.

1. This Mess-Free Tablet For Doodling

KOKODI LCD Writing Tablet

It's a much-loved travel toy with over 12,000 reviews on Amazon; kids love the endlessly reusable surface to draw and color on, and parents appreciate that it holds their attention without making any mess.

Plus, this tablet is so slim and lightweight, you can tuck it into any backpack. The tablet's built-in battery offers six months of battery life, so you don’t need to worry about charging it on your trip. I keep one in the backseat of my car at all times. If you have multiple kids traveling with you, color coordinate for each toddler: Choose from blue, orange, pink, or yellow.

A helpful review : “We bought this pad to take on a long car trip with our 4 yr old granddaughter. She is usually traveling with her nose stuck to an iPad, I was looking for something to get her out of watching iPad all trip. This did the trick! She drew all kinds of things, practiced her numbers and letters, and played games with me. It was great to have something that didn’t need to be charged.”

2. The Uber-Popular Cups That Parents Swear

The First Years Stack Up Cup Toys

  • Age: 6 months old and up

A set of stacking cups is so much more than it seems, and its versatility and small size make it an essential travel toy for toddlers. This particular cup toy set is wildly popular with a 4.8-star rating and over 56,000 reviews; plus, it's only $5.

The eight brightly colored cups are stackable but also nest within each other for minimal storage in a carry-on bag or anywhere else. The bottoms of the cups are numbered for practicing counting and number recognition. They'll also love knocking down a tall tower of cups. Each cup also has holes on the bottom, so they make fun bath toys anywhere . Headed on a beach vacation? Pack these lightweight cups for tons of playtime in the sand. Or scoop up fresh snow with them if you're headed north. Really, these are a fun toy anywhere you can stack them.

A helpful review : “If I had to pick one toy for a baby, this would be it. My 3-year-old still finds things to do with these cups that he has had since infancy. So simple and yet so versatile. They can [be] bath toys if needed. They are perfect for travel where your destination may not have many kid toys because they pack so easily and yet provide great entertainment and opportunities for development, creativity, etc. Everyone should have these.”

3. A Soft Toy With Buckles To Keep 'Em Busy

Buckle Toy Buster Square

  • Age: 1 to 4 years old

You may have noticed your toddler is increasingly interested in things like seat belts and high chair buckles. This buckle toy square takes those non-toy things and turns them into a very appealing square toy for the toddler crowd, with six kid-friendly buckles in different clasp styles.

Learning to buckle and then unbuckle these straps engages your toddler in fine motor skills, cognitive skills, problem-solving, and hand-eye coordination, so don't be surprised when this small toy holds their attention for longer than you thought possible. An easy-to-open zipper reveals a pocket, and on one side of the square are numbers and shapes that will appeal to your toddler, too. With over 3,000 reviews, this is another fan favorite. Several shoppers noted they clean this lightweight toy regularly in a washing machine.

A helpful review : “My son is obsessed with buckling things (set belts, high chair straps, etc) so this was perfect. The cover of the pillow is soft and the straps provide different challenges as they are different on each side. The zipper pocket allows for storage of other small items and is something else to play with it. Kept him busy enough on a plane ride.”

Choose from other themes, too, like vehicles , farm , under the sea , or stock up with a 3-pack of sticker pads or a princess bundle .

A helpful review : “This sticker book kept my three year old daughter busy for three hours on the way to New York and two and a half on the way home! Perfect for road trips.

deMoca Quiet Book for Toddlers

The toy comes with a garment bag for its turn in the spin cycle.

Each of the activities and pieces is tethered to the book so they won't get lost, and the book is available in red, green, or blue. This book is pricier than some others, but many parents noted in the over 1,500 reviews on Amazon that it is "totally worth it" to keep your toddler entertained during travel.

A helpful review : “[...] My daughter LOVES playing with this in the car, and it keeps her just as occupied as the annoying noisy battery-powered toys. And what a reprieve it has been!! [...] It grows well with them, which is a must considering the price tag. It is very well made and very durable. We’ve had it for just under a year and it’s held up excellently. [...] 100% worth the money for the peace and quiet!!!”

7. A Set Of Reusable Mess-Free Coloring Pads

Melissa & Doug Water Wow Bundle: Farm, Safari & Under The Sea

  • Age: 3 and up

Coloring books are a family traveling staple, but here's another no-mess option you should also keep on hand. These Water Wow! books appeal to toddlers because the water pen “magically” fills in the themed pages, and you'll love that these lightweight books let your little one color without potentially marking up anything outside of the coloring book.

The provided water pen is wide so it’s easier for toddlers to grab, and it conveniently fits into a built-in storage spot on each book. I keep these travel-friendly books in my backseat or in my bag and love how easy it is to fill up the "pen" from my water bottle. I've never had any issues with leaks. I’ve used these a lot in restaurants and on car rides to keep my toddler entertained, and I love that they may help promote fine motor skills as well as early writing skills.

This set of highly rated coloring pads, with over 7,000 reviews, comes with three themed books (farm, safari, and under the sea), each with four reusable pages in a spiral-bound pad, and fun facts to go with each page. These mess-free coloring books are also available in other themes: dinosaurs , vehicles , and an affordable fairy tale bundle . No matter which theme you choose, these are a must for traveling toddlers.

A helpful review : "We recently used these on a trip for 2 toddlers, they were quiet and content with these while on the plane. We love all Melissa and Doug products but this one was truly a life saver on a flight."

8. A Small Magnetic Wooden Block Set

Tegu Travel Pal Magnetic Wooden Block Set

  • Age: 1 year and up

An ordinary set of blocks might be tricky to keep track of with a toddler on a train or plane, but this magnetic wooden block set has just six pieces that stick to each other with magnets hidden inside each chunky block. The colorful and patterned blocks can be arranged into a hummingbird design, as well as over 60 other creations, like a rocket ship or other animals. The small set is lightweight enough to bring on any trip, whether you're traveling on the road or in the air.

If you find your toddler loves building with this on-the-go set — which also comes in a jet plane , cat , tugboat , and whale — you can add on to the Tegu block collection at home, since it's compatible with the brand's other blocks, too. The wooden pieces are made of FSC-certified (aka sustainable hardwood) so while pricier than other wooden blocks, they're responsibly made and are designed with durability in mind.

A helpful review : "Purchased this toy for our 2-year-old to play during our flights. He really enjoyed it. Once taken out of the packaging, it’s compact enough so you can easily throw into your backpack or bag."

9. A Set Of Moldable Sticks To Spark Your Toddler’s Imagination

Wikki Stix Reusable Wax and Yarn Sculpting Sticks

11. This Shape Sorter With Its Own Storage Bag

Melissa & Doug Take-Along Shape Sorter

  • Age: 9 months old to 3 years old

A helpful review : “My kiddo loved this toy. I got it for a plane ride to Hawaii for my 12 month old, and she enjoyed taking the shapes in and out and looking at the pictures, and picture flaps. We used it on an off the plane for that trip, and kept playing with it when we got home. At 18 months she was able to fit the shapes in on her own, and just loved playing with the shapes on her own.

Nice To Have: A Set Of Backseat Organizers With Tablet Holders

Reserwa Backseat Car Organizer

Unlike some other organizers, these have holes for headphones and USB cords, so you can charge your little one's tablet as they watch, too.

A helpful review : "I ordered this item thinking it would, at very least, be a cute cup holder. [...] I was so pleasantly surprised by its quality, durability, and craftsmanship that I immediately ordered a second set.

Also Great: A Board Book All About Space

Hello, World! Solar System

  • Age: 0 to 3 years old

This space board book stands out for completely gripping my toddler's attention compared to other board books we've recently checked out. It's a colorful book with just enough information about the solar system to engage toddlers. My almost 3-year-old is obsessed with this book and we’ve read it so much he has memorized some of the fun facts, and we’ve picked up other books in the series, too. It's small, lightweight, and maintains an impressive 4.8-star rating with over 5,000 reviews. This book is also available as part of a boxed set with four books that will entertain your traveling toddler.

A helpful review : “My 2 year old has recently become obsessed with planets and the moon, but I was having a hard time finding a board book that it seemed like she would like (everything I was finding was designed for older kids). This is absolutely perfect for her though, and she’s completely obsessed with it. It’s simple, but great for small kids, and is still educational too.”

Best sippy cups and beakers: spill-proof, transitional and eco-friendly first cups for babies

As your baby moves on from breastmilk or formula to solids and water, they'll need a sippy cup to help them learn how to drink independently. Here are the best sippy cups to buy for each age, stage and preference.

By Jenny Wonnacott | Last updated May 7, 2024

best travel cup for 3 year old

Sippy cups allow babies to learn how to drink rather than suckle, and dentists and dieticians recommend giving babies water from a cup from around 6 months old. Because all babies are different and moving from the breast or baby bottle can be a challenging transition, they come in all shapes and sizes. Your baby’s age and habits will help you choose the best sippy cup to suit your needs, and most parents buy a selection to see which their baby gets on with.

Here at Mumsnet we're obsessed with making parent's lives easier, and we know just how much of a difference the right product can make when it comes to feeding and changing during the baby and toddler years. That's why we've done the leg work for you, by vetting and collating Mumsnetters' top recommendations for everything from the best breast pump to the best changing bags .

There are many kinds of sippy cups - whether you’re going for soft spouts, hard spouts, straws or free-flowing, open cups - with tons of great features. You might want to consider leak-proof for travel; spill-proof for, well, always; cups with handles for tiny hands to easily hold; eco-friendly options; and those all-important transitional sippy cups designed to change and adapt as your little one grows.

Choosing the best sippy cups (and not spending a fortune working your way through every model on the shop floor) is tricky. That's why we've undertaken rigorous, independent testing of our top eight sippy cups with real parents to make sure we're only recommending the very best items available. We've also taken into account real recommendations from the Mumsnet forums - the largest UK online network of parents - as well as expert advice in the field of feeding.

These are the best sippy cups 2024.

Best sippy cups: our top picks at a glance

Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup

Tommee Tippee Essentials First Cup

MAM Trainer+ Cup

Munchkin Miracle 360 Degree Sippy Cup

Mumsnetters say it’s pretty much spill-proof

Dishwasher-safe and easy to clean

Might be difficult for some little ones to use

Price on writing: £7 | Capacity : 7 oz | Recommended age: 6 months+ | Material : Recycled plastic

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Munchkin Miracle 360° Sippy Cup review

This spoutless cup from Munchkin is a big hit with parents who deem it pretty much spill-proof - worth an award, in our book. Its 360-degree drinking edge allows your child to sip from any side, helping develop their muscles ready for open cups. It seals up again as soon as they stop drinking: goodbye, spillages! It’s also easy to fill and clean with no fiddly parts and it’s dishwasher-safe on the top rack: another big tick from us.

While this cup isn’t completely free-flow, it does teach children to sip from the edge of a cup rather than chomp on a spout, which means they won’t have any liquid swilling around their teeth. If it seems this might be too tricky for your little one (as some parents, including our tester Laura, reviewed), they could grow into this after something with more of a sucking style (see below).

Tommee Tippee Essentials Free-Flow First Cup

Dishwasher-, microwave- and steriliser-safe

Encourages sipping rather than sucking

Not spill-proof, though spout does flip down to prevent too much leakage

The spout can get tiny food bits stuck in it, but a thorough wash will get it all out

Price on writing: From £2 | Capacity : 190ml | Recommended age : 4 months+ | Material : Polypropylene, silicone

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Tommee Tippee Essentials Free Flow First Cup review

The classic cup has been a favourite with parents for years and it can be found in most supermarkets. There are cheaper cups, but we think it’s excellent value for money as a solid, well-made model from a trusted premium brand. With a low-ish price tag, you can buy a few (one for at Grandma’s, one for under the pushchair…) without breaking the bank.

Free-flow cups are a recommended option and this is a great one thanks to easy-to-grab handles and its good size for babies to wield themselves. Though it doesn’t promise to be totally spill-proof, the spout flips down and many parents have been merrily carrying a Tommee Tippee like this in change bags for years. They’re great for on-the-go. This can be used from as young as four months too, so you can get your child started on sippy cups early. Graduations on the side help you keep track of how much your baby has drunk. Lastly, they’re also easy to clean with no fiddly valve.

NUK First Choice Learner Sippy Cup

Soft, silicone, free-flow spout mimics the shape and feel of a breast

Upside-down trainer handles with no-slip grips

Spout with anti-colic air system

Not recommended for dishwasher use

Price on writing: £10 | Capacity : 150ml | Recommended age : 6-18 months | Material : Silicone

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full NUK First Choice Learner Bottle review

With its soft, silicone, free-flow spout, this cup from NUK is a great choice for breastfed babies as it mimics the shape and feel of a breast while teaching them to sip from a cup. It’s a great place to start for your baby to develop more strength and coordination before moving onto an open cup or similar.

We love the upside-down trainer handles with no-slip grips - really easy for babies to grab hold of. The spout features NUK’s anti-colic air system which prevents babies gulping air as they drink and getting windy. It has a no-spill design too which, though not totally spill-proof, will reduce the amount of water that ends up on the floor. A plastic lid covers the spout to keep it clean while on the move, it’s very easy to hand wash and it can be sterilised (though it’s not for dishwasher use).

MAM Trainer Cup

Can swap teat for soft, silicone spout to aid transition

Easy-grip handles

Can be used from as early as 4 months

Some users reported that it broke quite easily/quickly

Teat top could mean your baby doesn’t move onto a proper sippy cup quite as quickly

Price on writing : £12 | Capacity : 220ml | Recommended age : 4 months+ | Material : Silicone

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our in-depth MAM Trainer+ review

For total cup newbies, the MAM Trainer Cup offers a clever design to aid transition. Just attach the teat and your baby can start using the MAM as a baby bottle. Once they’re used to handling the cup themselves - encouraged by the easy-grip handles that aid development - swap the teat for the soft silicone spout (which is non-spill and free-flow). It’s a clever system, but bear in mind that the teat top could mean your baby doesn’t move onto a proper sippy cup quite as quickly.

Gradations on the cup itself let you know how much your baby has drunk. The dust cap also displays measurements and it helps to keep the cup clean. We like that the MAM Trainer Cup can be used from four months old, to get them started early. Bonus: the parts are simple to take apart and easy to wash, with a wide lid that makes it easy to get a bottle brush right inside.

Klean Kanteen Kid Classic Sippy Cup

Other lid attachments so your child can grow with it

Attractive range of colours and designs

Can be attached to a lightweight buggy or backpack

High price tag but a bottle for life

No handles: harder to hold than some sippy cups

Price on writing: £17 | Capacity : 355ml | Recommended age : 6 months+ | Material : Stainless Steel

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Klean Kanteen Kid Suppy Cup review

Trying to reduce your plastics? You’ll love Klean Kanteen’s stainless steel water bottles for kids as it’s a bottle for life, which reduces wastage. The Classic Sippy comes with a spill-proof sippy cap and dust cover for little ones, but it’s also compatible with Klean Kanteen's bamboo, sports and loop mouth pieces so it can grow with your child. The bottle itself is virtually bomb-proof - it doesn’t scratch or dent, so it'll survive as time goes by. Just don’t lose it (eek!).

It’s recommended from six months old, though we think a six-month-old might struggle to hang onto it reliably (no handles) but it’s a good and long-lasting starting point. It has a plastic cover to keep the spout clean but bear in mind that it isn’t attached to the bottle itself and customer reviews say it’s just asking to get lost. To add to its credentials, the cup is BPA-free.

Bickiepegs Doidy Cup

Open cup style - great for independence

Recommended by medical professionals

Easy-to-grasp handles

Not leakproof

Takes a while to learn how to use it 

Doesn’t come with a lid

Price on writing: £4 | Capacity : 200ml | Recommended age : 3 months+ | Material : Plastic

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Doidy Cup review

Doidy Cups may not look terribly modern. In fact, this same design has been around since the 1950s but we say: if it ain’t broke, why fix it? The Doidy is a slanted cup that's easier for babies to sip from than an ordinary open cup. It’s loved by healthcare professionals because of the independence it brings, the fact that it’s an open cup (the Holy Grail of cup training!) and the way it helps children to develop hand-eye coordination. The downside? You might end up with a few spills on the floor.

The handles are easy to grasp and, as your baby brings it to her lips, she won’t need to tip it too far to take a sip - the water sort of comes to them. It’s also available in a huge array of colours that babies will enjoy. While it can be used from just three months of age, frankly, we’d be impressed if any three-month-old baby was sipping delicately on this without help. No harm in helping them with it for a while until they’re familiar and can lift it themselves.

TUM TUM 3 Way Trainer Cup

3-in-1 - transitions from free-flow straw cup to sippy cup then open cup

Great size for a baby and toddler

Two handles each for gripping

Made of food-grade silicone

Not spill-proof when tipped or dropped

Price on writing : £13 | Capacity: 180ml | Recommended age: 6 months+ | Material: Food-grade silicone

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Tum Tum 3 Way Trainer Cup review

Designed with the help of Stacey Zimmels, a speech therapist who specialises in feeding and swallowing, the Tum Tum 3 Way Trainer Cup is unique in that it transitions from a free-flow straw cup to a transition cup without the straw and then to an open cup. This allows your baby to develop their sipping skills while progressing to eventually using an open cup.  

It’s suitable for use from six months, which is when you’ll typically start weaning , and will last long into the toddler years. 

Available in three colours (grey, blue and pink), this sippy cup looks both stylish and minimalist. It’s also made of silicone so is soft to the touch and feels lovely to hold, although you should be aware that its capacity is relatively small for older toddlers.

Camelbak Eddy+ Kids Bottle

Flip, bite and sip use

Leak- and spill-proof

Loads of cool designs to choose from

Pricey but can replace the spout if needed, rather than the whole thing (just don't lose it, kids!)

Price on writing: £13 | Capacity : 400ml | Recommended age : 3 years+ | Material : Plastic (50% recycled material)

Tried and tested by Mumsnet: Read our full Camelbak Eddy+ Kids Bottle review

Boisterous or busy toddler on your hands? Kids aged 3+ won’t argue over the Camelbak Eddy (we can hope…) thanks to the fun, adventurous designs. They’re made for flip, bite and sip use with a straw, a button-press lid and a valve that delivers a steady flow. Important for active toddlers, they’re supposedly leak proof when closed and spill-proof when open, and our Mumsnetter’s review supports that.

Your toddler can carry this fave cup around using its convenient handle. Yep, it’s toddler-adventure ready! The cap and bottle are odour and stain resistant, safe to pop in the dishwasher and free of BPA, BPS and BPF. In fact, they’re made of 50% recycled material. Lots to love!

Types of sippy cup

The main types of sippy cup are:

Spout : liquid flows through the spout. Those with softer spouts are often aimed at breastfed babies as they mimic the feel of breastfeeding. They are closest to a bottle and allow sucking. Hard spouts sometimes follow, encouraging tilting and sipping. These often allow for biting.

Straw : Sippy cups that come with a straw attached or included, rather than a spout, help to get your child used to drinking from a straw and a cup, for when they eventually get there. With a straw, your child won’t have to tip or lift their cup - nice and easy.

Spoutless/flat lid : Lastly, there are cups with a flat lid - no spout at all. Like the Munchkin on this list, they’re sometimes called 360 cups. Kids can drink from any angle so it resembles a normal cup, but it still has a lid (often, this seals shut after use) to prevent spills.

Which type of sippy cup do dentists recommend?

Free-flow or open cups are what’s most recommended by dentists so go for one of those in the first instance - this is because sipping is better for babies' teeth than sucking. Dentists and health experts say no-spill and valved types aren't as good for your baby's teeth, so it makes sense to use open or free-flow cups where possible, and opt for no-spill designs for in bed or in the buggy.

Otherwise, look for cups that are easy to use (as this is all about giving them independence so think handles, easy-grip and easy drinking design); leak-free and spill-free (especially important for outings); easy to clean; robust; and with no harmful chemicals (such as BPA-free).

How to help your baby learn to drink from a cup

It can feel quite overwhelming to introduce a new way of drinking to your baby, especially at a time when you're also contending with the mess weaning brings along. Here's some advice from baby experts the NCT :

Sit with your baby and slowly tilt the cup to their mouth, so they can take a sip of water

Opt for a cup with two handles to start with - these are easier for babies to hold

Use an open, tilted (like a Doidy Cup ) or free-flow cup to start off with, so they learn to sip rather than suck

Take your time, be patient and expect spills

What’s the best sippy cup to buy?

It depends on your child’s age, abilities, preferences - and your preferences too. We chose the Munchkin Miracle 360 WildLove Trainer Cup as our overall best sippy cup because of its free-flow, spill-free and has a 360 degree sipping edge. If you’re after a budget option, the long-respected Tommee Tippee Essential Free-Flow First Cup is a good choice. NUK First Choice Learner Sippy Cup is good if your baby is breastfed, while the Bickiepegs Doidy Cup is a long-loved all-round first. Try the TumTum Tippy Up Sippy Cup if you want one with a straw. We hope our list has something for everyone.

How we choose our recommendations

We turned to the experts on the front line: our Mumsnetters! We trawled the Mumsnet forums for honest recommendations from real parents on which sippy cups worked well for them, looking particularly at which lasted well (without leaking) and were popular with babies. We also noted any models that received negative reviews.

We then researched by consulting the NHS and National Childbirth Trust (NCT), as well as dental experts on their recommendations for best baby beakers and sippy cups. We also checked out advice from consumer champions, such as Which?, on what to look out for.

Having created a longlist of 30 recommended beakers, we looked up various industry awards and reviews to see which sippy cups were scooping the most accolades, and checked out customer reviews on retailer sites too. We then weighed up all of that research to bring you this list of 14 best sippy cups, which we hope helps.

The Best Travel Mugs to Put at the Top of Your Packing List

best travel cup for 3 year old

By Tyler Chin

All products are independently selected by our editors. If you buy something, we may earn an affiliate commission.

As we become more conscious of our impact on the environment, many of us are quickly looking for ways to lessen our carbon footprint. One easy way is to ditch the disposable coffee cups at your favorite cafe (or even better) supply your own coffee, and bring it on the go. Because we know nobody likes a lukewarm brew (iced or hot—there is no in-between), we wanted to ensure that you’re only sipping out of one of the best travel mugs around.

The Best Travel Mugs, According to GQ

  • The Best Travel Mug, Overall : Fellow Carter Slide Mug , $30
  • The Best-Designed Travel Mug : Miir 360 Traveler , $28
  • The Best Travel Mug with a Handle : Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Reusable Mug , $33
  • The Best Jumbo-Sized Travel Mug : Brumate Toddy XL Mug , $40
  • The Best Wide-Mouth Travel Mug : Kinto Travel Tumbler , $29
  • The Best Barista-Approved Travel Mug : KeepCup , $30

Because, if you’re anything like us, you may wish you could have a 24/7 caffeine IV. Sadly, that’s not a thing, but the best travel mugs make it so that you never have to be without the cup of Joe. To find the options worthy of your bean juice, we tested and reviewed a handful of models to ensure that your sweet caffeination would be good from the first sip to the last—no matter how long it takes you to finish your bevy. Here’s what the competition boiled down to and which travel mugs are best suited for which kind of person.

The Best Travel Mug, Overall: Fellow Carter Slide Mug

Image may contain: Cylinder, Tin, Can, Trash Can, Bottle, and Shaker

Carter Slide Mug

From its cult-favorite electric kettle to the newly released drip coffee maker of our dreams, Fellow’s been big on coffee gear since the brand first stepped on the scene in 2013. One of its best products is its Carter mug, which won a Specialty Coffee Association award in 2021 for best coffee design. The double-wall vacuumed mug keeps everything nice and warm inside for 12 hours, while the ceramic lining ensures no metal flavors leech into your drink (subsequently, it keeps drinks cold for a full day if that’s more your jam). The matte exterior—which comes in a wide selection of colors—has a grippy texture that’s a pleasure to hold.

The original Carter mug had a regular screw-top lid, which housed a splash guard, preventing any liquid from ending up on your face if you were trying to take a sip and suddenly got jolted. We’re much bigger fans of the slide lid, which slips open with a quick and easy motion of the thumb, though it is a tad annoying having to disassemble it to clean it properly. It’s also completely spill-proof, which we’ve tested through the many times we’ve tossed a full cup of coffee into our bags and ended up with a dry laptop.

The Best-Designed Travel Mug: Miir 360 Traveler

Image may contain: Bottle, Tape, Water Bottle, and Shaker

360 Traveler

Here’s a huge first-world problem: having to rotate your cup seemingly forever to find the opening to grab a sip. Miir’s 360 Traveler combats this by turning the entire circumference of the lid into an opening for sipping. All you have to do is depress the center button and freely sip from wherever you damn well please. Ingenious—we know. Its slim build lets it sit comfortably in most, if not all, car cupholders, and it’ll keep your drink at your desired temperature without having to worry about outside factors—like if you left your hot coffee in an ice-cold car for a couple of hours or vice versa. And if this lid doesn’t suit your fancy, the body is compatible with a number of other Miir toppers, like a regular twist-off or a straw option.

The Best Travel Mug with a Handle: Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Reusable Mug

Image may contain: Cup, Beverage, Coffee, and Coffee Cup

Hydro Flask

Stainless Steel Reusable Mug

Imagine your regular at-home mug, but primed and prepped to take a beating. Hydro Flask’s insulated mug is great for daily sipping, keeping your drinks hot, and being easy to clean. It’s one of the most durable travel mugs we’ve tried, something that the brand has carried across all of its drinkware options. The no-slip exterior is a nice touch, though we’re sure you’ll mostly be holding it from the handle. We also like how smoothly liquids flow through the lid so that you can chug that 8 a.m. coffee long before you’ve made it to the office.

The Best Jumbo-Sized Travel Mug: Brumate Toddy XL Mug

Image may contain: Steel, Bottle, and Shaker

This isn’t just another big dumb cup . Brumate’s Toddy XL has been perfected to help you always keep your big gulps of cold or hot beverages with you. The extra-long handle is a pleasure to hold and makes it easy to hold such a large-format container. If you were to drop this, you could rest easy knowing that none of your contents would spill onto the floor.

The Best Wide-Mouth Travel Mug: Kinto Travel Tumbler

Image may contain: Jar, Pottery, Urn, Bottle, Shaker, Hockey, Ice Hockey, Ice Hockey Puck, Rink, Skating, and Sport

Travel Tumbler

Kinto’s array of minimalist tableware and lifestyle gear makes it a winner in the looks department. But functionally? Yeah, we’re big fans of the brand for that, too—especially with this low-key travel tumbler. The sleek container features a tapered lid that makes it easy to grasp, while the thin lip is just a pleasure to drink from, allowing drinks to waterfall seamlessly into your mouth. The wide mouth of the tumbler makes this great for use as an iced coffee mug because you’re more easily able to add ice, but no matter what temperature your drink is, it’ll stay that way for hours and hours.

The Best Barista-Approved Travel Mug: KeepCup

Image may contain: Jar, Pottery, and Cup

Brew Cork Reusable Coffee Cup

Imagine your regular disposable coffee cup, but fashion it out of glass and a reusable lid, and you’ll have KeepCup. The brand was founded by Australian cafe owners as a way to combat overflowing landfills teeming with single-use cups. KeepCup was designed with baristas in mind so that they could use these containers in lieu of disposable options—it sits perfectly under an espresso machine’s group head (where the espresso comes out from) and is sized to replicate industry-standard cup sizes. The lid is splash-proof, not spill-proof, and comes with a cork band that’ll make sure you don’t burn your hands on your hot cuppa.

3 More Travel Mugs We Love

Yeti knows how to keep things cold (just check out its coolers ), and it’s also great at keeping things hot. Why would anyone want a stupidly cute cup that’s this small? Maybe someone likes to use a moka pot on their travels, or they managed to haul their whole espresso setup onto the backroads. We don’t care why someone would want to use this, only that we absolutely love how dainty this thing is and what a pleasure it makes drinking espresso out of. Also, we found that it’s compatible with Yeti’s 10-ounce tumbler lids just to keep the mosquitoes away from your joe.

Temperature Control Travel Mug

Ember’s temperature-controlled mugs are a godsend for folks who take forever to finish their coffee. The same science is applied to its travel mug, which keeps your drink at the exact temperature you set—between 120 and 145 degrees Fahrenheit—for up to two hours. Its leak-proof lid prevents any unwanted accidents, and it’s fully submersible in water up to one meter in case it accidentally takes a plunge in some liquid.

Image may contain: Cup, Bottle, and Shaker

For a cheap travel mug that doesn’t suck, RTIC’s is able to keep your bevvies warm and securely inside the container. They’re fully dishwasher safe, which is a plus, and they come in over a dozen colors to match your vibe.

What to Look for in a Travel Mug

Size : Tall? Grande? Venti?! We’re ditching the Starbucks lingo to bring you a variety of travel mug sizes to accommodate however much coffee (or tea or whatever) you tend to drink on the regular. If you’re chugging joe like it’s a Big Gulp, go big with something like the Brumate Toddy XL to make fewer trips to the coffee pot. But if all you need is a quick shot (of espresso) or a moderately sized latte, then maybe something smaller like a KeepCup or dainty Yeti will get you where you need to go. Also note that if you’re pouring a small beverage, like a cortado, into a much larger container, that beverage will cool down faster because of all the empty space, regardless of the vacuum insulation.

Leakproof : We know there are a lot of klutzes around us, so we want to make sure your beverage stays exactly where it should be: in your mouth or your mug. A good travel mug should be leak- and spill-proof, but we made exceptions for the KeepCup, which we think is a great way to opt out of using disposable cups at cafes without disrupting a barista’s routine for making drinks.

Easy to Clean : Not all travel mugs need to be dishwasher safe, but in the hopes that you’re regularly cleaning your container, we made sure to find easy travel mugs to give a thorough cleaning. The last thing you need is built-up gunk in your travel mug to harbor bacteria, leading to sickness or just an overall nasty drinking experience.

How We Tested

We found a variety of travel mugs that were popular with reviewers and tested them to see how they performed with daily use over a prolonged period. We evaluated travel mugs based on their durability, ability to keep beverages hot, and overall aesthetic to determine which options were best for various people. Finally, we assessed how easily these travel mugs came apart to give a thorough cleaning and how long-term use impacted their performance.

Travel Light With the 15 Best Sleek and Stylish Crossbody Purses, Sling Bags, and More — From $14

Handpicked by someone who hates traveling with a big bag.

Travel + Leisure / Tyler Roeland

No matter the destination, traveling can be an amazing experience, and having the right purse can make your life on the road smoother. But what if you’re someone who doesn’t love carrying a big bag as you stroll through a farmer’s market in Seattle or hike Rocky Mountain National Park? 

Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of suggestions for you. These days, large purses are far from a necessity. We found 15 travel purses and bags that will hold everything you need without weighing you down — and they’ll fit right into an overhead bin or under the seat if you’re flying. That's not even the best part: These top-rated styles, ranging from sleek sling bags and belt bags to RFID-blocking crossbody purses and backpacks , start at just $14.  

Kedzie Quilted Puffer Crossbody Bag

This convertible sling bag from Kedzie has become my go-to travel purse. The zippered front pocket is perfect for lip gloss and receipts while the larger two zippered pockets hold lotion, wallet, phone, gum, and more. You can wear this like a crossbody or over your shoulder, plus, a second strap is included if you want to wear it like a backpack. 

Reviewers have said they want to buy multiples after trying the bag. They have also called it the “perfect size” that " holds everything I need and more ."

Everlane The Recycled Nylon Camera Bag

Yes, this is a camera bag, and you can absolutely carry a camera in it. But it’s good for so much more than that with its adjustable crossbody style strap, two zippered compartments, and an exterior slip pocket. The main body is made with 100 percent recycled nylon while the lining is 100 percent recycled polyester. Tasteful neutrals like black, khaki, and beige will go with anything — saving you precious luggage space.

“It's a great size with enough room for the essentials; it holds my wallet (not a small one), keys, phone, glasses, lipstick,” raved one reviewer. “I love it so much I bought it in two colors.”

Everlane The Cactus Leather Sling Bag

Sling bags are in, and this option brings sophisticated vibes for a girls’ weekend in wine country. Made with organically sourced prickly pear cactus (who knew?), the brand's Desserto material is a fabulous leather alternative. No digging in the bottomless abyss of a giant purse here — it’s got just enough room for just the basics, like a card or two, lip balm, and your phone. Choose from sleek cashew, dark honey, or day-brightening lime green.

“I am also a bare necessity type of girl, so I love the fact that it really only fits my small wallet, phone, and chapstick," one shopper was happy to report. "It will be wonderful for travel as well with a passport." 

Patagonia Atom Sling Bag

If you’ve got active travel plans like exploring the Grand Canyon, you’ll want to grab this sling bag from Patagonia. The four color options include two solid hues and two vibrantly color-blocked options, all of which are water-repellant, made with recycled materials, and Fair Trade Certified sewn. Weighing just 12 ounces, it has an impressive capacity of 488 cubic inches with a phone pocket and two main compartments. You can even use it to bring your yoga mat along by using the tuckaway front straps. Now those are Namaste vibes!

According to one reviewer, who hiked not one but two challenges (100 miles in 100 days each), said, “I can always fit more than I think in the outermost compartment. The mesh pocket holds {my} phone perfectly, and it's easy to access everything even when the bag is on.”

Osprey Daylite Pack

Want something slightly larger than a sling bag? This backpack weighs just over 1 pound and can fit a 13-inch laptop in its roomy, three-compartment interior. Its compact size makes it an ideal personal item if you’re flying to your next workcation since it’ll fit right under the airplane seat. You’ll stay hydrated with two side pockets for water bottles and you can keep your keys close by with the attached key clip. Plus, the four solid jewel-tone hues lend just the right amount of understated style. 

From hikes to flights, reviewers love this bag for any adventure. One chimed in, “This was perfect for my flight excursion. It's just the right size and shape, [and is] lightweight and comfortable.”

Fjallraven High Coast Crossbody Bag

This crossbody may look like your average purse, but it has a detachable strap that turns the bag into a sleek pouch when you're on the go. It has two main compartments, a key hook, and two interior mesh sleeves to keep everything in its place, whether used as a cosmetics pouch in your checked bag or as a purse while dashing to your airport gate. It's available in olive green and black hues, and both styles are just $50.

Though it's perfect for travel, reviewers love that it makes for a great everyday bag. One REI customer said, “This bag does the tricks great for travel, hiking, [and] dinner out with friends. It holds way more than you think, and the outside pocket is a nice added bonus." 

Baggallini Crossbody Bag With RFID-blocking Wristlet

Known for functionality and plenty of pockets, Baggallini crossbody bags live up to the brand’s reputation. Five colors are available, including black and a fun lipstick red. The bag has RFID-blocking protection in the included wristlet for peace of mind while jet-setting, plus three exterior zip pockets. It’ll stow nicely under an airplane seat and you can even machine wash the bag. Bonus: It’s on sale starting at $49 — the lowest price we’ve seen in a month.

“The size is perfect [and has] enough space to fit everything: keys, glasses (two pairs), a wallet, a phone, [and more] odds and ends," a reviewer described. "[There are] zippers to keep everything in securely and just enough compartments to organize." 

Arc’teryx Mantis 1 Waist Pack

Into hands-free travel bags? Arc’teryx’s waist pack has a rugged appeal and can be worn around the waist or over your shoulder. At 15 inches wide, the two zippered compartments hold a respectable amount of goods, including your keys with its interior key clip. The Yukon hue is a medium tan and the bag is made from recycled poly material for a durable yet environmentally friendly option that’s less than $50.

Taking to the review section, a traveler explained how useful it is as both a travel and an everyday bag, saying, “While traveling, it was great that it could hold larger portable batteries for phones, wallets, snack bars, keys, coins, etc. The zippers are very robust and zip very smoothly.”

Frye Melissa Zip Crossbody

Frye is known for quality leather bags, but with this on-sale option, the brand is bringing in a little shimmer for those who can’t say no to a bit of glam. The three hues include denim blue, oatmeal beige, and dusty rose to match your favorite travel outfits. It has a zippered main compartment with an interior pocket, as well as an outer slip pocket and an adjustable strap. 

Reviewers adore this bag and rave that it’s “roomy” yet lightweight. Another happy shopper said even when the bag is full, it still has a slim profile. 

Dagne Dover Mara Phone Sling Crossbody Bag

If you’re gifted with the elusive (for me, anyway) skill of packing light, you’ll want to grab this Dagne Dover phone sling bag. It has a crossbody strap that can go from 14.5 to 28 inches, and the bag itself measures just 6.5 inches wide — just enough room for your phone, a lip balm, and a credit card or a bit of cash. You have four colors to choose from, like classic black or a deep moss green. 

“I take this literally everywhere with me and have two young kids. It's much easier to fish things out [of] this than any giant bag of kid stuff,” said one clever reviewer. “And it’s trendy and cute when I’m without kiddos.”

Hobo Draft Leather Crossbody Bag

This bag will be your new best friend if you appreciate versatility and a timeless style. Available in all neutral colors (black, white, or tan), it has an adjustable strap that you can remove to transform the bag into a clutch for a night out. The foldover flap gives it extra style while upping its content's protection, and the luxe leather material elevates it into a chic everyday bag.

Reviewers say the bag is soft and holds plenty of items without bulging. One shopper noted it was “perfect” for carrying a wallet and passport during their international travels. 

Madewell The Essential Mini Bucket Tote

It’s possible to get the style of a bucket bag without the bulk thanks to Madewell. Measuring just 8.5 inches tall, this bag can be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag. Plus, it’s structured like a classic bucket bag and has a flat base to keep it upright for easy packing and tracking down what you need inside. The elegant leather bag also comes in a warm brown or a beige hue for a timeless look.

Multiple reviewers have called it a “great bag,” with some calling it the “perfect size.” And it currently has a perfect five-star rating from all reviewers at Nordstrom.  

Travelon Women’s Messenger Bag

Have travel plans to busy destinations? Check out Travelon’s anti-theft messenger bag for peace of mind, especially while weaving through crowded stadiums or venues. Its five-point anti-theft features (like a slash-resistant material) make it a smart choice while the front magnetic flap adds style and an obstacle for thieves and pickpockets. Keep your water bottle handy in the side pocket and stash your passport and other important documents in one of many zippered or slip pockets. The classic black version is $80, but select colors (like olive green) are on sale for as little as $51.

It’s easy to see why over 6,200 people have given it a perfect five-star rating. One traveler , who bought multiples, said, “It has excellent security features. All [the] zippers have clasps that secure them. There is a front pocket that works great for cell phone, on the opposite side, one outside pocket that works great for credit cards, passport, etc., and has RFID protection.”

Bostanten Small Phone Crossbody Bag

Available in an impressive 15 colors and patterns, this vegan leather cell phone bag can hold four cards plus a phone, along with some small essentials in the zippered pockets. The crossbody strap is adjustable, but you can remove it and slip this small bag into a larger one if you need more supplies for all-day sightseeing excursions. 

“I purchased this for a Caribbean cruise vacation; I fit three passports, credit cards, a driver's license, a hotel keycard, car keys, and a ship sea pass, and still had room for lipstick, a folded excursion map, receipts, and other essentials,” one cruise goer shared . “I’m glad I bought it.”

Maxtop Fanny Pack

Last but not least, this fanny pack is another perfect travel companion if you don’t want to carry around a huge bag. It’s just $14 (but currently on sale for $9) and comes in four colors (black, two gray hues, and pink). Within the zippered main compartment, there’s a hidden pocket to store your cash or passport. Wear it as a classic fanny pack (the ‘90s are back, after all!) or as a sling. 

“I bought this cross-shoulder bag for vacation and wanted a nice looking, comfortable cross-shoulder bag that carried just what I needed — that’s what I got,” exclaimed one shopper . Another traveler added , “It feels good worn in the traditional sense, but I do prefer the strap across the shoulders.”

England's kris kim, 16, set to make pga tour debut, following in footsteps of his lpga mom, share this article.

best travel cup for 3 year old

High-level golf runs in the family for 16-year-old Kris Kim, who will make his PGA Tour debut this week at the 2024 CJ Cup Byron Nelson at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. Kim’s mother, Ji-Hyun Suh, played on the LPGA in 1998 and 1999, at the same time superstar Se Ri Pak burst onto the global stage.

Kim, who hails from Surrey, England, brings quite the resume to Texas. His 2023 triumphs include the R&A Boys’ Amateur Championship, European Boys Individual Championship and the McGregor Trophy.

He also went undefeated at the Junior Ryder Cup, defeating another up-and-coming star, Miles Russell, 5 and 4, in singles. The 15-year-old Russell, of course, tied for 20th recently on the Korn Ferry Tour .

View this post on Instagram A post shared by England Golf (@england.golf)

“I can’t wait to play in front of big crowds again. I’ve never hit the ball as far as I did at the Ryder Cup,” Kim said in a release. “The adrenaline rush makes golf so much fun. That said, having played that course, and a few more Tour courses, I appreciate the task ahead and look forward to the challenge.”

Kim, who is playing in McKinney on a sponsor exemption, became the first amateur sponsored by CJ Group last May. Managed by Trinifold Sports, Kim also became the first European amateur to sign an NIL deal with Under Armour and the first British amateur to sign with TaylorMade.

Suh, who briefly returned to competition in Europe in 2014 after a 12-year break, told tour officials that she took up golf at age 13 in Seoul after her father forced her to quit tennis.

“My father would take me at five in the morning and I would hit balls all day and my hands would hurt,” she said. “I didn’t like it very much, but my father did. So I continued practicing from the age of 13 and I became very good. Then, I joined the Korean National team, turned professional in 1998 and afterwards I decided to try and play in America.”

Suh recorded two T-15 finishes in 1998 on the LPGA at the Friendly’s Classic and Giant Eagle LPGA Classic.

Her stint in America fell short, she said, because her English wasn’t very good and it was difficult to travel on her own. With no sponsors in the U.S., she ultimately left for the Japan LPGA, where she played for one year until she met her husband and stopped altogether.

That was in 2002. The couple moved to Surrey and Suh took up a teaching career at a local golf course.

While Suh’s path into the game was laid out by her father, Cuddington Golf Club director Paul Schunter told BBC Sport that Kim’s passionate pursuit is self-motivated.

“I’ve never known a more dedicated youngster,” said Schunter, who watched Kim’s game develop as a youngster at Cuddington.

“And he could not have asked for better parents. They have been so encouraging. All the pushing has come from Kris because he has always wanted to play and practice more and more.”

Kim doesn’t have to look far to learn more about how to handle the next step of his career.

“I’ll definitely ask my mum for advice,” he said. “It is going to be a very different environment and you don’t know how you will respond to it. She’ll help me deal with it. She’s my coach and we talk about everything from dealing with nerves, taking one shot at a time, leaving bad shots behind and keeping it simple right through to course strategy.

“My first aim is to make the cut and then see what happens. At the end of the day I’m one of 144 competitors and we’ve all got a chance. Whatever happens, it’s going to be super helpful for my future because I’ll gain so much experience. I know I’m still young and pretty much every week I learn a lesson, but this week is going to be a lot bigger.”

The Drake and Kendrick Lamar Rap War Is Full of Style References

From straightforward jabs about Kendrick Lamar hating Drake's style to the G-Unit spinner chain being featured in the "Family Matters" video, here are the style references from the ongoing rap war.

The Drake and Kendrick Lamar beef escalated to a new level on Friday night with the release of "Family Matters" and "Meet the Grahams." The bars that most people are referencing are very serious, at times eerie, accusations about each respective rapper's family and personal life. But not all of the shots being traded cut as deep, at least at first glance. Each rapper has also tapped into the style world to take certain shots.

There's the very to-the-point "I hate the way that you dress" on Kendrick Lamar's "Euphoria." In "Family Matters," Drake showed off some of hip-hop's most iconic custom chains from 50 Cent and Pharrell to help get his point across. As you may expect from two rappers of this caliber, not every reference should be taken strictly at face value. This stuff is usually more calculated than that. Not everything these guys are accusing one another of has been verified nor have some of these theories, but this war of words certainly has everyone tapping into detective mode to uncover every easter egg and double entendre. 

Check out all of the references, below. 

"Tommy Hilfiger stood out, but FUBU never had been your collection"

Man on stage in casual black jacket and pink pants, holding a microphone, with a graphic backdrop

From: Kendrick Lamar Track: "Euphoria"

Before the beat kicks in on "Euphoria," Kendrick Lamar is essentially warning Drake not to take it there with him. One of the bars was used to challenge Drake's Blackness and his struggle for acceptance within hip-hop, something we've seen Rick Ross also lean into heavily for his disses towards Drake. At face value, Kendrick is saying that Drake preferred Tommy Hilfiger over FUBU back in the day. Peeling back the layers a bit reveals the deeper meaning behind why Kendrick may have referenced these brands specifically. Since the '90s, rumors have circulated that Tommy Hilfiger was racist and did not approve of the hip-hop industry's embrace of his brand in '90s and 2000s ( the rumors were debunked ). On the other hand, FUBU (For Us By Us) was conceived by Black designers to cater directly to the Black community. Kendrick is saying Drake isn't an authentic member of the culture and never has been. 

"I Hate the Way That You Dress"

View this photo on Instagram

From:  Kendrick Lamar Track:  "Euphoria"

You don't need to think too deeply about this particular bar. Kendrick Lamar has made it clear that he absolutely hates a whole lot about Drake. He even hates his wardrobe. He builds upon the jab at Drake's personal style later in "Euphoria" by bringing up his close friend Lil Yachty. Kendrick raps, "Yachty can't give you no swag neither, I don't give a fuck 'bout who you hang with." Yachty is considered one of the best-dressed rappers at the moment and has clearly had some influence on Drake's style choices in recent years. In Kendrick's opinion, even that can't save Drake's fashion crisis. 

The G-Unit Spinner Chain

best travel cup for 3 year old

From:  Drake Track:  "Family Matters"

On "Push Ups," Drake rapped that they "got me out here talkin' like I'm 50." For the "Family Matters" visuals, he doubles down on channeling 50 Cent by showing off his legendary G-Unit spinner chain. It makes sense why Drake would want to give a nod to 50 during this beef. The rap legend was notorious for his incredibly personal attacks during his battles with the likes of Ja Rule, The Game, and Rick Ross throughout his career and was always victorious. 50 Cent even co-signed the move by posting the clip from the "Family Matters" video that featured the iconic chain along with a caption that read, "I told you 🥷🏾’s leave him alone, now he spinning on all yall," so there's a chance that 50 loaned him his piece for the video since he appears to be on Team Drake. 

As is the case with many of the bars in these diss tracks, there could be some symbolism with this one. The spinner chain was infamously stolen and it was feared that it would make its way to Ja Rule's camp during their beef in the 2000s. While concrete details surrounding these events have never been confirmed, the chain eventually made its way back to 50 Cent. Drake spinning the chain around his neck could be his way of saying that he will also be able to weather all of the shots Kendrick is throwing his way and still come out on top when all is said and done.

Pharrell's Chains

best travel cup for 3 year old

He didn't melt them after all (we didn't really think he did, but what a relief). In the video for "Family Matters," the slew of Pharrell's iconic chains that Drake paid around $3 million for and flexed in the "Jumbotron Shit Poppin" video resurfaced. This was Drake's response to Kendrick Lamar's bar in "Euphoria": "I don't like you poppin' shit at Pharrell, for him, I inherit the beef." When the chains flash on screen in the "Family Matters" video, Drake raps, "You wanna take up for Pharrell? Then come get his legacy out of my house." In case you forgot, Drake really collects these rap relics like Infinity Stones. This was a nice reminder. 

Tupac's Ring

best travel cup for 3 year old

From:  Kendrick Lamar and Drake Track:  "Euphoria" and "Family Matters"

Both rappers have shown their affinity for Tupac throughout their careers. The late rapper has also been referenced various times by both Drake and Kendrick throughout their rap war, most notably when Drake used voice altering software to sound like he was Tupac rapping to Kendrick on the since-deleted "Taylor Made Freestyle." After that, Kendrick Lamar brought up a custom ring that formerly belonged to Tupac. Drake purchased it for roughly $1 million at auction in 2023. Frankly, Kendrick seems pretty disgusted that Drake owns it. He'd even pay double just to get it back from him as to not tarnish Tupac's legacy. He rapped, "Somebody had told me that you got a ring, on God, I'm ready to double the wage." Drake gave his rebuttal to the line in the "Family Matters." The ring in question flashes on the screen as he raps about Kendrick allegedly calling Tupac's estate to get "Taylor Made Freestyle" taken off the internet: "You called the Tupac estate and begged 'em to sue me and get that shit down."

"Two separate albums dissin', I just did a Kim to it, n***a, skim through it."

best travel cup for 3 year old

This one is likely nothing more than some clever wordplay. On "Family Matters," Drake raps, "Two separate albums dissin', I just did a Kim to it, n***a, skim through it." This is a reference to Kim Kardashian's massively successful shapewear brand Skims. This one is actually directed at Metro Boomin and Future's recent albums that sparked this entire beef and not a jab at Kendrick Lamar, but "Like That" lives on We Don't Trust You , so we're going to mention it. 

If you want to dig a little deeper, this could potentially be a way to get under Ye's skin. Some called out how Drake just chose to ignore Ye's "Like That" remix and not serve him up any bars on "Family Matters." It has been long-rumored that a situation with Kardashian was at the root of Ye's disdain for Drake. We could be reaching here, but we've seen some crazy coded messaging from both sides of the Drake vs. Kendrick Lamar beef, so who knows. 

Drake's Bars for ASAP Rocky

best travel cup for 3 year old

Drake wasn't just focusing on Kendrick Lamar on "Family Matters." He also offered up a response to ASAP Rocky's jabs on "Show of Hands." We'll stick to the style-focused lyrics here. The first one is, "I ain't even know you rapped still 'cause they only talkin' 'bout your 'fit again." It's no secret that Rocky is a hip-hop style icon. Drake is implying that Rocky's fashion ventures are all that people care about and his music is an afterthought. He doubles down on this a few bars later with the lyrics, "Even when you do drop, they gon' say you should've modeled 'cause it's mid again." Rocky's project Don't Be Dumb appears to finally be on the way, so only time will tell. 

The Engagement Ring

best travel cup for 3 year old

At the end of the "Family Matters" video, Drake can be seen flashing a diamond ring. It's being speculated that the ring is supposed to match the engagement ring that Kendrick Lamar gave his longtime girlfriend Whitney Alford in 2015. They have yet to get married. Drake refers to the relationship between Kendrick and Alford throughout "Family Matters,"  speculating infidelity and domestic abuse as potential causes for the delay. He raps, "Proposed in 2015, but don't wanna make her your actual wife/I'm guessin' this wedding ain't happenin', right?/'Cause we know the girls that you actually like," and ends the track with the line, "They hired a crisis management team to clean up the fact that you beat on your queen." Domestic violence is a serious issue and nothing has been proven as of yet, but the closing bar (and Kendrick's "Meet the Grahams") clearly indicates that we've gotten to a point in this altercation where nothing is off limits.

'Meet the Grahams' Cover Photo

best travel cup for 3 year old

From:  Kendrick Lamar Track:  "Meet the Grahams"

Frankly, this cover is one of the eeriest pieces of this entire beef. We got a tease of this photo when Kendrick Lamar released "6:16 in LA." All we saw at the time was a pair of women's Maybach riding gloves . When Kendrick dropped "Meet the Grahams," the rest of the photo was revealed. The gloves, still new with tags, two pill bottles, some receipts, and a box of Ozempic were arranged on top of a vintage button-up shirt from the brand Arctic. The receipts both indicate purchases from Popular Jewelry, a hot spot shop in New York City. There is also a business card from fine jeweler Nadine Ghosn , who created multiple custom pieces for Drake in 2023 like the diamond-encrusted dog leash featured in the "First Person Shooter" video. The shirt features a dog graphic, which falls in line with the canine references that Drake was making with his wardrobe throughout the promotion of For All the Dogs . The receipts make it likely that whoever took this photo came did so during Drake's stint in New York City for the It's All a Blur tour in July 2023. He paid a visit to Popular Jewelry around that time. According to Akademiks, the items in the photo came from a suitcase stolen from Drake's father, Dennis Graham, but this hasn't been confirmed.
