Let Your Kiddos Sip Safely (CLOSED)

Exactly what are your kids drinking (besides juice) when they're sipping from that sippy cup you bought at your local discount store?... The answers just might scare you!

The answer... Bisphenol A, phthalates and DEHA and those are just the biggies! Glass is a great option as far as being chemical-free, but safety is a big issue here.

The Safe Sippy has your answer! It is made of stainless steel which does not have any chemicals to leech into your child's beverages. Some of the only plastic parts are the lid and straw and they are certified free of Bisphenol A, phthalates and DEHA. They also put their cups through extensive independent laboratory testing on our cups to make sure they are free of these chemicals. Lastly, we make our cap out of Polypropylene, #5 plastic. PP is the most stable of all plastics.

I received a Safe Sippy to try out and, although both of my kiddos are no longer in the "sippy cup stage", Lauren, my youngest thought it would be great to take some gatorade in when she rode in the car. The safe sippy is sturdy and well made, it washes up wonderfully in the dishwasher and I can tell that anyone who has a safe sippy will most likely have it around for a very long time. The easy grip rubber on the outside made it comfortable for little hands to hold and the handles would make it very easy for a toddler to use. If my kids were at the sippy cup stage I would definitely ditch the old plastic sippys and replace them with these in an instant!

We have One (1) Safe Sippy 2 sippy cup from The Safe Sippy to give away to one lucky reader.

The easy to clean stainless steel and flexible handles will be perfect.

I think this would be great to have because we have all misplaced a sippy at least once in our lives and then they get all nasty. Well, these cups are stainless steal instead of plastic making clean up a breeze. That and plastic makes the drinks taste funny.

I like that it's stainless steel so it does not interact with the foods and fluids it comes into contact with.

Plastics free of Bisphenol A-my number one reason for wanting this. An alternative doctor I saw once after having cancer three times told me the plastics in our society contribute towards cancer.

This is great because it doesn't have toxic chemicals

I really like the fact that the spout is shaped like a straw.Recent
research has shown that wide, flat drink spouts can cause developmental and speech problems in young mouths.Thanks!

I love that they designed the sippy as a straw but it doesn't leak! Genius. They thought of everything I would love to have one for my daughter.

I like how they are made in the U.S. and stainless steel is more durable than safe plastic. vidomich(at)yahoo(dot)com

The rubbery sleeve surrounding the cup is made of something called thermo plastic rubber, or TPR. It provides insulation when you put cold liquids into the cup on hot
summer days. The sleeve also acts as a cushion that protects the stainless steel…and your toes, should you be foolish enough to wear sandals around your two year old. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
