Can anyone help me with this? I read about the baby bottles leaching toxins, does this apply to sippies too?

I was worried about this so I got born free bottles. They are PVC and Phalate free. I have thier sippy cup, too. I got them at whole foods,<br>
Good luck, I was relieved when I found out and starting making changes!<br>

My understanding is it does. That's why we've switched over to Siggs and Kleen Kanteens! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Thanks Mamas!<br><br>
I had never heard of Born Free. Those might be good for home use, I read that they are not leakproof.<br><br>
The Kleen Kanteens are the regular ones with the sippy adapter, right?

Here is the same discussion in the toddler forum:<br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=660723&highlight=sippy" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...ighlight=sippy</a><br><br>
Here is what i posted:<br>
NUK!<br>
We love our NUK sippy. They make them for 6 months up, and then toddler ones too. for the 6m+ they make bottle teats to put on.<br><br>
WE LOVE NUK! PVC free.<br><br><a href="http://www.nuk.de/nuk2003/html/main.php?lang=en" target="_blank">http://www.nuk.de/nuk2003/html/main.php?lang=en</a><br>
for the main site.<br><br>
Our 12 month old uses the First Choice Learner "bottle" (more like a sippy) on this page<br><a href="http://www.nuk.de/nuk2003/html/main....iten&" target="_blank">http://www.nuk.de/nuk2003/html/main....iten&</a> lang=en<br><br>
They do have a leak free option, too. but right now we're just using a NUK that is not with a valve. Good to train with i think.<br><br><br>
HTH!

I posted a couple of comments last year, but I'm afraid I got a little over-excited at the time. My husband started a company last year, Kid Basix to create a non-toxic sippy cup. It's called The Safe Sippy. It's stainless steel, cute as a bug, and it debuts in September (next month) at the ABC Kid's Expo, which is the largest children's show in the country.<br><br>
If you want more information, the website will be up by the end of August in time for the launch - <a href="http://www.thesafesippy.com" target="_blank">http://www.thesafesippy.com</a> Or you can email my husband at <a href="mailto:[email protected]fesippy.com">[email protected]</a> OR <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> (the 2nd email will be good starting in September).<br><br>
Throw out those plastic sippy cups! And forget out Klean Kanteen! The Safe Sippy rocks (okay, I'm a little prejudice).

I recently read that some of the Avent ones are okay... anyone else know about that?<br><br>
I am trying to research because I am getting pretty close to purchasing some sort of sippy.

Thermos has a new line Foogo and offers stainless steel insulated sippy cups. Available from Target.com. I've never seen these in person, but I've ordered them for my sisters' and cousin's children and plan to order some for my newest DS.<br><br>
Unless I like the Safe Sippy Cup better. Mindyj - please remind us about the website when it's up! Sounds like it's right up my alley.<br><br>
We use Funtainers by Thermos with our 4-year old. These are stainless steel, but not appropriate for those under 3. There is a bit of plastic in the straw, but nothing like with a totally plastic cup. Plus the beverage stays cold.

Those foogo cups are cute, but wouldn't they be lined with plastic insulation? I think their whole purpose is too keep drinks cold or hot, so I imagine that would mean a plastic lining...please correct me if I'm wrong!! Because if I am, I think this could be a good option.<br><a href="http://www.thermos.com/SubCategoriesCatalog.aspx?CatCode=Foog&SubmenuId=5" target="_blank">http://www.thermos.com/SubCategories...og&SubmenuId=5</a>

why aren't they for kids under 3? My 2 yr old uses those and the baby has had little sips of water from it? Is it just because its a straw design? Because its not that hard to teach straw use to infants....

It's a disclaimer made by Thermos because of the straws, but I know others who also let their 2 year olds use them too. I probably would have let DS use them at 2 also. But it's annoying because they bite the straws apart.<br><br>
I was v. happy when I saw Thermos was making sippy cups because they are dishwasher safe (whereas the funtainers are handwashable) and because I won't have to worry about my baby biting the straw off and choking on it.
