I’m so tired of hearing about a new plastic that may be dangerous to my family. I’ve done a lot to eliminate whatever fears I’ve had about plastic- all my plastic food storage containers and baby bottles have been swapped out for glass. My toddler, obviously can’t bring glass items to school with her, and it’s probably not a good idea to give her glass cups at home either, so she uses stainless steel products. This includes a stainless steel container for her school lunch and a stainless steel sippy cup.
On a typical trip to Buy Buy Baby, I noticed a row of Kid Basix stainless steel drinkware products. I purchased a SafeSporter for my toddler in pink, her favorite color. I threw out any of the plastic sippy cups she still had, and haven’t looked back since! With the plastic containers, I usually changed them every other month because either the straw got yucky or the plastic scratched, which made me more fearful about leeching. The Kid Basix cup she got about 8 months ago? Well, it’s still perfect and has not had to be changed!
Stainless steel is cleaner- there is no odor or funky taste that comes from using stainless steel, and the only thing that really compares to stainless steel is glass. Of course, you don’t have to worry about stainless steel breaking, so this is obviously the better choice when it comes to children (or a clumsy mama!) I feel that Kid Basix stainless steel drinkware last a lot longer than plastic and are much safer. They even have various sizes and spouts, depending on what stage your child is in! Check out their extensive product line:
My infant is almost at the Safe Sippy stage and will be using the Safe Sippy2 until she is up to the Safe Sporter stage. The Safe Sippy2 is a great sippy cup that is spill proof, won’t leach harmful chemicals, and has a soft spout, perfect for teething babies. I feel better knowing that my babies are using the safer option when it comes to children’s drinkware, and you can too!
