We've tried a lot of brands & types of cups with Linnaeus & Bronte. At first, it was all about the straw cups. Neither of my children--& I assume most six-month-olds--were very good with the style of cup you have to tip to drink from. Straw cups could sit on their highchair tray or just be held upright & they'd be able to drink easily. Once they got to about a year, the tipping style with a spout were okay for mealtimes & actually superior for in bed, since they could have a sip of water while lying down.
The latest cups we've tested out are Tommee Tippee's new line. I got a couple of insulated sipper tumblers for Bronte. They look smallish inside, but it's definitely enough for a toddler: over 250mL. The slightly soft spout can show teeth marks. I find that the new valves work well & don't pop out like the old ones did, however they're harder to clean since they're all one piece. The cups do not leak when shaken upside down or thrown on the floor but the valves are still easy to suck liquid through. The lids from this line are all interchangeable & dishwasher safe as well. I love the insulated tumblers for keeping milk fresh. The colours & patterns are cute--we got the yellow with the bee & the coral pink with the apple.
You can find Tommee Tippee sippy cups all over the place. They have many different sizes & styles, with handles or without, different types of spouts, insulated or not, as well as straw cups or tilt to drink. Find out more on the Tommee Tippee Thrills Not Spills page.
