How to Choose the Best Drinking Bottle for my Kids?


As our children grow older, they tend to be picky. They don’t want to eat this, they just want to eat that, they only want us to read the same story all over again, they want to wear their pink dress (in which they just wore yesterday!) and many more! But as a parent, we always want the best for our kids. Even when it comes to a drinking bottle or sippy cup, we know we should choose something that is safe, reusable and most importantly will bring extra fun to our kids!

So, what are the important criteria when choosing a drinking bottle for your kids?


  1. Highly durable

Our kids tend to be active at times. And way more hyperactive when they are outside. They want to drink it by themselves and then just throw it away once their thirst is quenched. A highly durable drinking bottle is really helpful at times like this.

  1. BPA-free

Besides that, a drinking bottle for kids (and adults as well!) that is BPA-free helps reduce some major health concerns, such as certain cancers, diabetes and birth defect. BPA stands for the chemical “bisphenol-A”. Thus, it is good to let our kids drink their water from a BPA-free drinking bottle.

  1. Soft silicone spouts/straws

A drinking bottle that is made from soft silicone spouts & straws are most like the nipples on a bottle, for easy transition from the bottle. According to Dr. Grace Yum who is a certified pediatric dentist, a soft Silicone spouts & straws helps to promote healthy oral development and protect the children’s teeth. So, this rubber-like material is the most suitable one for our kids as it is gentle on their tender gums.

  1. Easy-to-grab handles

Our little ones are not advanced enough to pick up a cup without handles. They are still in the transitioning phase – from breastfeeding to the milk bottle and then drinking bottle. A drinking bottle with two handles at the side of the cup makes it easier to grasp. Some have removable handles, so our baby can use it at a later stage too.

  1. Colorful and fun!

Last but not least, a colorful and fun drinking bottle adds the excitement to our kids! To make drinking as a habit to our kids, choose bottles with colorful and interactive design. Pick the one that has their favorite color or cartoon.

If you are still overwhelming by the choices of a drinking bottle, just choose the one from Nuby!

It is more than just a cup for your little one! The new sipping cup can help your baby to drink like a big kid! It has a clever spill-proof seal, easy to drink from and makes the transition to open cup drinking easier with its 360 pressure sensitive technology. Your child can drink his/her water easier and you can just throw it in your bag without worry as it is covered with a hygienic and water tight cover lid.

Even these mommies love it how their kids are having fun with Nuby’s drinking bottles and sipping cups. One parenting tip you should know though – no sipping cup is designed to hold hot liquids, so kindly use only cold liquids in it and never put a sippy cup in the microwave. So now your little one can drink like a big kid and have fun while they’re at it!

Della received a gift from that contains a few of Nuby Water Bottles! Seriously, the water bottles are so cool where it can transform from a normal water bottle to a sippy cup with holder. Excited makcik ni sbb dia memang suka minum air, nampak je bottle baru terus suka esp kalau gambar comel2. And nampak tak ada tulis Nuby 360° Flip It? Haaa ni utk 12 months+ lepas tu no spills so your baby can drink at any position nak baring pun blh. And then ada pulak Nuby Flip It Active for 18 months+ ni sesuai utk umur besar lagi. And water bottle ni tk berbau, let say if before that u letak watermelon juice dalam tu (mcm Della suka minum watermelon) so the bottler doesnt capture the taste/smell of the previous drink. Nway, thank you , now kitorg tgh pegi holiday so senang la bawak the new bottle for travelling sbb boleh tukar2. Bertuaaaahhh Della ni. Hehehe. #Motherhoodcommy #NubyKids #Nubyfunmoments #No1OnlineBabyShoppingMarketplace
