I see bottles and sippy cups as being pretty much the same thing.
My problem with bottles were that my oldest daughter chewed up the nipples so they'd leak and spill all over the place.
She did the same thing with sippy cups that had softer tops.
I had to switch her to hard-topped sippy cups so she couldn't chew them up.
She tried to chew up the soft plastic, bendable straw on one style cup, but was unsuccessful.
Since my daughter's share at times, my youngest has the tougher cups, too.
I would totally love to get my hands on those stainless steel sippies, but since it seems the only way is through internet purchasing, I likely won't get them. Shipping here is extremely expensive.
