The “Tilty” has made all the difference January 23, 2009

Ever since my daughter was 6 months old, I’ve been trying different BPA-free sippy cups. I’ve been through a few now and so far, Eco Girl just hasn’t been holding them on her own and she just doesn’t seem to get that she needs to tip them back. Perhaps it’s partially because she’s been using 8 ounce glass bottles and never seemed to hold them up either. All this time, I’ve been doing it for her, thinking they were just too heavy – now it’s a habit that has transferred over to her sippy cup.

I’m pleased to say, though, that I’ve found a solution! Have you seen the new Tilty sippy cup?!!!

It’s BPA-free,  PVC-free, and dye free. The great thing about it is that it’s designed so that you don’t need to tilt it a lot to drink from it. You should see how much she loves drinking from it on her own.

The Tilty cups are 7 ounces each and you get two in a package for $6.00. They are dishwasher safe and are made of Polypropylene.

One warning, though – the Tilty is not “drip free”. If you turn it upside down (or shake it, as Eco Girl likes to do sometimes), it will leak small drops.

    D’s just starting to sometimes be able to hold his sippy cup. He never did the bottle thing, so didn’t get a chance to learn to hold it himself. Whatevs. I figure I don’t mind holding the cup while he drinks, and he’ll figure it out with time.

    I am curious about this Tilty cup, tho, and may check it out. Personally I prefer the cups that aren’t so drip-proof, as those tend to be super hard to drink out of anyway.

  2. This seems to be a good green solution but does anyone know if the Tilty sippy cup is available outside the US?

    What a clever design!
