Nuby Step 3 No Spill Cups Review & GIVEAWAY!

A thoroughly average week plods on here. (Week 18! See my new improved Pregnancy page!) Disappointing British "summer" weather has robbed me of the sunshine induced mojo of the bank holiday weekend. We're in the throws of a round of teething and the house is in chaos from decorating. To boot my baby brain has thoroughly kicked in and I find myself completely unable to make decisions. Talk about first world problems… I have had more than one meltdown over not finding the perfect shade of grey for my lounge walls. So whilst I mentally backhand myself back into reality and work on getting a freaking grip, this seems like an excellent time for a good old fashioned review and GIVEAWAY

The products: Nuby Step 3 No Spill Drinking Cups
I became aware Euna seemed to need more fluids than her Step 1 & 2 cups could give her and after a few steals of her baby friends' cups I realised she was ready for… A STRAW! Cue a colourful delivery from Nuby and the opportunity to test drive the next step: Step 3.

Firstly… Pathetic sniff at how un-bottle-like these cups are. These are genuine toddler cups. For waddling toddlers. Not for babies. *Nostalgic sigh* **Second backhand** 
So! I got sent a few types of these… Some with handles, some with slide over lids and varying colours and shapes. Most importantly they all have the same rubbery straw that's flexible and soft in their mouth. The tip only opens if the straw is squeezed further down, this is what makes it "No Spill". And "No Spill" essentially for Euna means she can't pour it out all over the sofa and carpet and play splashy games in her new mini pool. It means I can leave it hanging around the lounge floor when she can pick it up and put it down when she needs without me having to supervise every sip. It also means, that despite some of them not having the slide over lids, that any of them can fall over in my nappy bag or footwell of the car and not pour out. Fab. 
The colours are nice. A range of more pastel cups as well as bright neon colour cups are available. 

Some have handles. Euna doesn't appear to have a preference between handles and no handles. On the handle ones they are removable though. I will advise that you need to make sure the handle is "clicked" into place where the thread of the screw top goes on, otherwise it does leak. 
Price? Well right now the price is EXCELLENT! Nuby UK website have huge sale on and they start at £1.50!!! A fact I had no idea about until writing this review! What luck!
In practice they've been great. We switched her over in one go. The above picture with the pastel pink cup were her first try and below is 3 days later and she totally has the hang of the straw and most importantly keeping the cup down to get the water up the straw (as opposed to tipping it up to get it to mouth piece like with the Step 1 & 2s).
 Excellent product!
Want one?!?!?

  3. I just switched Violet over to a straw sippy cup after she kept stealing her friends with straws and refusing to drink out of hers. They seem to be working much better for her and she is able to drink more out of them which is great for the super hot weather we have been having. Euna is adorable, as always.

    Thanks for sharing your favorite post at Raising Imperfection! We feature our favorites on Friday, make sure to come back and check.
