Tippy Up Sippy Cup with Weighted Straw (Valve Free), Betsy Bear, 200ml
"I've never used a cup like this with a weighted straw before but it's great and really does stop my little boy from getting frustrated when he's desperate for a drink and nothing comes out. Unlike other cups this weighted straw follows the liquid as he tips it up or whichever way - so it freely flows out easily. He loves it. It doesn't leak either so great for popping in the changing bag to carry around. I've had lots of comments about how cute the design is. Would highly recommend." Eva Green

- Suitable for cold or room temperature drinks only - if milk comes up the straw, this will be due to a build up of vapour pressure, either from warm drinks or from changing temperature, e.g. fridge cold milk in a warm room. Release the pressure by twisting the lid to allow it to escape before flipping the lid.
The best methods for cleaning your Tippy Up Cup is by hand washing with a mild detergent.
- For a light clean (e.g. if only used for water) the straw does not need to be removed from the lid. Wash with warm soapy water and simply run the straw under the tap, letting the water flow through the straw as you rub it between your fingers to remove any debris. Alternatively, fill the cup with hot soapy water. Close the lid and shake the cup. When you open it, the water will shoot out of the straw, giving it a 'pressure clean'.
- For a deeper clean (e.g. if used for milk or juice) detach the straw from the lid and give the cup a more thorough clean, leaving the straw to soak if necessary (e.g. if the cup has been left to stand with milk in it). The straw can then be cleaned with the TUM TUM straw brush or similar.
- Tippy Up Cups can also be sterilised by boiling, steaming or UV. Please do not use chemical sterilisation methods, such as Milton, as this can affect the weight in the straw.
