We know lots of parents are on the constant quest for finding a sippy cup that is both safe and practical. Maybe even inexpensive. For the 9 months and over set, consider the Tilty Sippy Cup. It's BPA free, PVC free, dye free and pthalate free.
The Tilty also is easy to clean. You can pop it in to the top rack of the dishwasher or if you wash by hand, you'll be glad to know it does not have a valve for easier cleaning. We didn't know this but the American Dental Association recommends sippy cups without valves so even further reason to think about the Tilty. You can buy them at their website at $6 for two.
