When our babies start drinking from a sippy cup, there are so many things that we consider before buying one. Is it safe and BPA free? Does it have a spill proof cap? Are the colour and cartoon something that my baby will like? Choosing the right one for your little one is important and should be based on your baby's different needs and stages of growth. One thing is for sure - whatever you choose to buy should be BPA free.
