My baby isn’t quite ready for toddler cups but I know that stage will be here before we know it. With all the recent news about dirty and bacteria filled toddler cups that got me thinking about what type of toddler cup I will use for my little guy when the time arrives. Right now we use Avent bottles and love them! They are easy for my breastfed son to go back and forth with, without getting nipple confusion. So with that in mind I started researching Avent Toddler cups and was pleasantly surprised at what I learned.
Philips Avent Toddler Cups
Philips Avent toddler cups feature clear, silicone valves, unlike other brands, providing instant peace of mind for parents that the cups are free of mold. In addition, each cup is designed so that the drinking valve and all other parts are easy to clean and can be disassembled with ease for thorough washing. And since it’s a pain to hand wash all those bottles and cups, Avent makes it convenient for parents with their dishwasher safe cups which can also be used with the Philips Avent sterilizers.
Tips For Choosing and Cleaning Toddler Cups
- Choose cups that are designed so that any parts that come in contact with liquid are washable
- Clean toddler cups immediately after use by disassembling the parts and washing them thoroughly with warm water and soap
- Make sure all parts are dry before assembling the cup and storing
These are just a few suggestions when searching for the perfect Toddler cup for your little one. I really love Avent Toddler cups because they have different styles and grow with your child depending on which stage they are in.
