Looking for specific info?
I bought 2, and i don’t know what i am doing wrong…liquid keeps coming up out of the straw after my little has drank some out of it, any ideas?
Where do i get replacement straws for these?
Are the handles removable?
I have a hard time getting it to click and lock? I can’t seem to twist it hard enough.
Is this product recyclable?
My straw is stained from food while my child is eating. How can i get rid of the stain or are there replacement straws for purchase?
Can i buy a replacement straw cleaner?
What is it made out of?
Is it made in china?
Where can i find replacement parts for this cup? I purchased it last week and already need to replace the straw.
Does the straw have a valve that has to be bitten down on in order for liquidto come out?
What is the weight made from?
What am i doing wrong??? This thing is the hardest straw to suck out of and i don’t get anything. How is a 9 month old supposed to get any water out
The one i purchased it too hard to suck water, is yours like that?
Is this tsa approved?
Are these bpa free?
I’m not a clean freak, but i know where water sits bacteria grows. Has anyone come up with a way to truly dry the straws out after washing them?
Can the straw be modified so it’s not necessary to bite in order to drink? Even when biting it’s very difficult. Am i missing something?
I bought this and water pours out when it is tipped upside down. Is this normal or is mine defective or not put together right?
What are our customers saying?
Like others have mentioned my lo took to this after trying dozens of other kinds of cups. The handles, the weight attached to straw, and good volume all are great. The click close is nice but only when it works. I got one that was never aligned properly and so i forced it and it leaked and then it was stuck and i couldn’t get it unscrewed. Amazon offered me replacement right away so that was good, but it took a while for me to figure it was same one giving me problems. Also i think one of the main issues is that the cleaning wire that it comes with is not long enough and not sturdy enough. If it was a true stiff wire that was just a little longer it would be so much easier to clean the straw. The one it comes with is too bendy and becomes unyielding when pushing through the straw. Also the top of the cleaning wire where the bristles are, comes off if you pull it out of the straw. If it was just a little longer i could just push it all the way through the straw and come out the other end. This would ensure the entire length of the straw is clean but also wouldn’t then break the bristles off mid straw. For me i tried all the cheaper alternatives first and have ended up with 7 of these now beacuse i can’t clean these every day and they are all my kid uses!
I bought two of these for my 9-month old and they have worked great. Every once in a while there will be water spilling when he drinks from them, but its hard to tell if it’s leaking or he’s spilling it. I didn’t use a weighted straw cup with my first and now regret it. These are great for him to be able to drink at any angle. So far no issues washing these in the dishwasher.
When my son was 5 months old, he started grabbing my drinks out of my hand and using the straw, so i got him his own to be like mommy. He loved it right away. Now at 8 months he still loves it and has definitely gotten better at sucking the straw, and more efficient at getting liquid out. I started putting a few of his bottles in there a few times a week so he can get used to that instead of a bottle and it’s working out great. He gets so excited when he sees me fill his cup up, and that makes me happy that he enjoys water so much. The cup itself is leak proof, the only time we’ve had drips is when i put liquid iv in there (he has adrenal issues and a need for salt and to be hydrated), it almost built up pressure and pushed up from the straw. So now i just release the pressure every so often if i’m giving him that. It’s very sturdy and seems easy to drink through for him, i tried it as well but obviously it’s easy for me lol. So really happy with this sippy cup. It helped my son learn to hold his own drinks and drink from a straw more efficiently. Great buy!
At first we thought it was impossible to drink from. Once we removed the tape from the bottom and pulled the straw through completely it was much easier. Milk comes up of the temperature is too cold. Otherwise baby loves this better than any others we tried
This is the best snippy out there and i have tried them all! It is a little tricky positioning the cap on straight to turn until it clicks put it’s not really a problem. I would suggest to the manufacturer the note in the instructions that the thin plastic cover over the weight should be removed before using.
I bought this cup for my daughter when she began her transition away from a bottle around 11 months. There are some things to note about this cup so that it functions properly.
First, the straw was really hard to suck through when i first tested it. However, you have to make sure the disposable plastic cover is remove from the weight at the end of the straw before first use. Also, it helps if you roll the top of the straw where the valve is through your fingers a couple times to initially open the valve before first use. This is also suggested in the instructions that come with the cup and i think some people who left bad reviews about the slow flow of the straw may have not done one or both of these things. I myself did not do either before trying the cup the first time and i also thought it was impossible to pull through.
Second, this cup does leak a small amount. The valve that keeps the milk from coming up from the straw is about an inch and half below the top. This means that any milk that is in the straw above this valve will leak when the cup is tipped over, thrown, or if the straw is flicked such as when you open the cup after closing it with milk in the straw. There is an easy fix for this. After your child is done drinking and before the cup is thrown or closed roll the top of the straw through your fingers, so that the milk above the valve can go back down. Other than this i have not had any leaks when the cup is properly closed.
Third, i ended up ordering 4 of these cups for my daughter to use daily for the milk we send with her meals to daycare. Somehow, i received cups from two different batches or from two different manufacturers and the tops of two do not fit the other two and vice versa. This led to the cups significantly leaking from around the rim and i thought at first, they had warped in the dishwasher. If your cups are leaking around the rim, please check the product number on the lid and cup to see if they match each other. Apparently, munchkin uses more than one manufacturer, and the products are not exactly identical. This is a little annoying, but i can live with it because overall the cups work really great for my daughter. The weights straw works great, and she has even leaned all the way upside down and still been able to drink. The straw is awesome verses a sippy cup because it is actually helping to strengthen the muscles, she will use later for talking. And the handles on the side allowed her to immediately be able to drink independently without any trouble at age 11 months.
Overall, this product is great. I haven’t found anything better so far!!!!
My child manages to drink from every angle until the end. And because it’s straw cup structured, it makes the my kis drink slowly, which is healthier
My 7 month old got the hang of it with the first 15 mins of using it, super easy to use not completely leak proof but i doubt any of these cups will be. She loves it.
When i first bought this i had no idea how to teach my baby to drink from a straw but they figured it out so quick!! It is a sturdy little cup that takes a good wall beating once in a while and it is super easy to clean. Currently we only use it for water.
Good quality. Better than expected. I will be purchasing more of these!
My baby loves drinking water in this cup. These cups are so tight that the water in straw won’t get low and hence will leak as the vents are one-way only. My baby was never a fan of her formula. As she turned 1, i started offering her formula in an open cup with an ordinary straw. Somehow now she takes formula in that straw cup and rejects baby bottles. So i got another straw bottle from walmart from some different brand that has a wider diameter of v end straw also. My baby is comfortable only with this v end wider straw bottle. I wish companies offer level 2 of weighted wider diameter straws also. One year babies are pretty big and they cannot be satisfied with these narrow straws that takes lot of struggle for tiny amounts. Well overall these are good starting training straw cups only.
We’ve tried every sippy cup, i have a museum of sippy cups in my cupboard. For some reason this is the one that my twins figured out how to drink from the easiest. They love this particular sippy cup. I have grown a hatred for this sippy cup. It’s hard to clean, it leaks, they slam it down and milk sprays everywhere, the diaper bag gets milk in it….it’s truly love/hate. If you’ve tried every sippy cup and nothing is clicking, give this one a try. But you’ve been warned.
I bought two of these weighted sippy cups- one for my 3y/o son and one for my 1y/o daughter. My son had been using this thomas the train hard-spout sippy cup like, forever and a day. He was hooked on this one specific cup, like i had nightmares about him loosing it! And then the day came that his speech therapist said he needed to switch to a straw-cup (to help strengthen his mouth/face muscles). I bought a variety of straw-type sippy cups and hurled each one at him, hoping one would stick (figuratively. Gosh… I would never want to throw anything at my sweet little darling) eventually, he settled on one… No, not this one here. Another one. But, that one leaked everywhere. And then- the biggest problem- he would throw a darn tantrum every darn day because he couldn’t get that last little bit of milk (actually the last 1/3 of the cup of milk) up through the straw while laying down because… Gravity. So, i discovered these weighted-straw miracles while shopping in a rite aid for over-priced baby nail clippers. Oh, was i delighted! Until i saw the price- $8.99 +sales tax = no-way-jose! So, being the thrify-nifty mama that i am, i quicky looked these puppies up here on amazon, and they were only about $5 each… Plus, being a shpeshall prime member meant no shipping costs & i could have this new fangled invention all up in my toddlers face tomorrow. So, i bought two because i try to learn from my past missteps. We got it the very next day. My son was thrilled to be able to lay down a drink all of the milk without the torture & struggle of non-weighted-straw cups. I was relieved to not have to deal with trying to explain gravity to an almost-3-year-old.
So the highlight is obviously the weighted straw part. The straw itself is a nice soft & flexible yet durable plastic-y material, and it has the ‘leak-proof’ thing inside the straw (you know, where it needs a bit of pressure to allow the liquid to flow through it). The lid has 2 side handles that make a click to let you know that it is closed good & tight, and uses a sliding mechanism on top to open/close the straw (pop-up type). The lid also comes in some nice bright colors- i got green for my son and pink for my daughter. The cup is clear and rather small… I think this could hold 6oz, but the straw & weight take up room, really it’s just a bit under 6oz. I thought these were going to be a pain to clean, but low and behold, it comes with a teeny tiny straw scrubber brush! Fantastic!
And now, what i didn’t really like: the spill-proof thing inside the straw becomes wide-open after so many washes with the straw scrubber brush and not-so-spill-proof… In fact, my son has given himself & his baby sister a milk shower several times. This week. I also noticed that the other part of the straw that connects inside the lid (which also has some kind of spill-stopping magic powers apparently… I’m sorry i obviously don’t know the proper terminology for sipping cup anatomy) eventually becomes loose too. My son has long-ago discovered that if he shakes his sippy cup hard enough, that spill-proof part inside comes loose and he can make it rain milk (yes, my son drinks milk exclusively). This eventually happens with any and all ‘spill-proof’ sippy cups. But the straw becoming damaged from cleaning just makes it worse. Since my daughter never used her cup, i swapped the straws out after a month. Now it’s been another month and i am just careful when i scrub that section inside the straw now and it’s still holding up. I really liked the clicking of the lid closing, but after opening & closing so many times, the click isn’t really noticable. This brings me to my issue of the size of the cup- it’s too small for my kids! Seriously both of my kids act like they are going to pass out from dehydration if they don’t have their cups filled with milk at all times. This means i’m constantly rinsing/washing/refilling this little cup all day long. It’s cray. But this may be just a problem for my kids and might not be an issue for yours.
Overall, i do really like these cups. They are perfect for little ones who like to lay back and have a drank. My son has thrown these cups at hardwood, concrete/cement, asphalt, brick walls/pathways, gravel, and marble and they have held up thus far… Many many scratches & scuffs but not a single crack! Bravo! If you decide to buy one of these don’t be like me and get carried away with excitement from the tiny straw scrubber brush; gently scrub the top half of the straw where the spill-proof whatever-you-call-it is and it should last you a lifetime… I’m just kidding, it will probably get you 6 months before you’re taking milk showers.
Our then 6 month now 1 year old struggled with the straw. We’ve been trying and trying but he just isn’t taking to it. I think the straw is too skinny for him so he’s confused what to do. He uses an avent natural bottle so that may be why, he has a wider nipple for the bottle so a skinny straw is confusing. Hopefully he learns soon
Sometimes the cup leaks from the top. My son loves this cup though and we also use just the bottom as an open cup which is perfect. Overall it’s the best cup we have tried so far.
I have three of these and my son loves to drink from them. They are very leakproof. The only time it will leak is when my son holds it upside down and shakes it. The one drawback is how annoying it is to clean the straws. The valve makes it difficult to get water to pass through to wash out the soap after cleaning with the provided brush. Other than that, these are great!
My son really likes this cup and it is leak proof if the interior silicone piece is in place. Not too hard to clean but the straw is thin and you need to use a little spoolie to clean it, not too bad. I only use it for water which makes cleaning easier.
It does occasionally leak. I think the suction of the straw can have some capillary action, causing it to suck up the liquid and spill out the straw, when it is just sitting on the table. Otherwise great sippy cup. My baby took too it super fast and all the other babies seem to want to grab it from her.
I wasted a lot of money experimenting with a variety of sippy cups. In the end, my toddler only wants this cup. I like the weighted straw because it allows her to get every last drop of water. My only beef with this cup is that it leaks. More often than not, water seems to drain through the straw and it doesn’t stop until the cup is empty. So beware it can get messy.
They work well for my little one. Cleaning is difficult especially the straw and dissembling the weight
