There are many varieties of sippy cups on the market today, but we have not used any of them that are quite like the NUK BPA Free Latex Spout Learner Cup. This cup looks like a sippy cup in most aspects, however it has a soft silicone sippy spout that it made of a soft, BPA free silicone that is much like those that the nipples of baby bottles are made from. Our baby loves this cup. Now that she is teething she chews on the "nipple" spout and she drinks from it as well. It doesn't stay in her mouth as well as an actual nipple would, but it works better for her than any other sippy cups because she started drinking out of a cup at a very early age. The cup has handles that attach to it, but you can remove these and hold just the cup when your child gets old enough to hold a cup without the handles. I always take the handles off when I stick this in my dishwasher, and it comes out really clean with no pitting in the plastic. If you are looking for a sippy cup to transition your baby from the bottle to the cup, I highly recommend this one. We love it. And it even has a cap similar to those that afix to a baby bottle, so you are sure the nipple sipper stays clean during travel. A great product!
