What could be better than a glass bottle (Oh, yes! Avoid plastic bottles for yourself and little ones!) with a silicone sleeve to protect it against breakage?
My customer review is: Please, give me a bottle/sippy cup with a non-plugging gasket!
I originally ordered what I thought was a 2-pack of bottle/sippy cups. When the sippy caps arrived, I realized that one was my fault. But really, “sippy caps” and “sippy cups” could be confused by anybody, right? When I finally ordered the right item, $16.99 apiece on Amazon, I couldn’t wait to try out a product that would be healthier for my child. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0052QOKXA/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I enforced the “water-only” rule for the bottle. At 2 years old, I think that is plenty old enough for my youngest to enjoy filmjolk, milk, and other hard-to-clean fluids strictly from a glass. I am so done with cleaning gunky build-up out of sippy cups.
After a few weeks of usage, my toddler learned to say, “Mom, my sippy cup is not working. Can you fix it?” So I would loosen the top, let in some air, and hand it back to her. In order to completely avoid this issue, one has to leave the cap loose enough to risk leaking out the side. The bottle would typically stop working and need to be re-capped two or three times per 9 oz. serving.
In conclusion, I am happier using this bottle than the plastic counterparts. For the cost, however, I expected a smoother ride.
