Like many other toddler moms, I have been on a search for a truly leak proof sippy cup for Ish. And not only for daytime shenanigans - Ish likes to take a sippy of water to bed and I can't tell you how many times I've walked in to check on him at night only to discover that his sippy leaked and he's sleeping on wet sheets. Even when I thought for sure I had tightened the lid enough.
I have tried different brands and different spout styles with no luck. Well - our search is over. We have discovered the Tommee Tippee Explora cup and we're not turning back! Finally, a sippy cup that lives up to the hype.
The Explora has a pretty neat little drinking spout that Ish got comfortable with quite quickly. I was able to capture his first sip from the new cup (sorry for the diaper-only shot here, but we're not very formal when reviewing sippies).
I shook, rattled, threw this cup around - not a drop of water came out. Ish takes it to bed with no issues. We even took it with us when we traveled to the lake last weekend and it took a beating in the car like a champ (Ish throws pretty hard for a little guy).
The Explora is a Stage 5 cup, recommended for ages 24 months + (if your child has mastered a standard sippy cup they should really have no issues adjusting to this spout).
Check out the Explora on the Tommee Tippee site here.
You can also find them on Facebook and on Twitter.
You can buy these cups (and other Tommee products) at Babies R Us and Toys R Us.
