We were at the park earlier this week with our friends, Shayna and E, when I noticed that E's sippy cup had a straw attached. "What a GENIUS child this must be!", I thought to myself. If Cheech was nowhere near handling a regular sippy cup, we'd be lucky if she mastered a straw by the time she got into kindergarden. Shayna assured me that the straw was actually much easier and that little E was also not so keen on the head tilt. Sure enough, I tried it out on Cheech and she was taking sips of water like a champ! I ran out and bought a sippy cup with a straw that same afternoon.
After doing some more research, I came across the LOLLACUP, which I will admit is a bit of an investment for a sippy cup, but I'm loving the handles suited for little hands and the narrower straw for flow control. I just might have to put it on her Christmas wishlist.
