Danny has already outsmarted me. And he's two. And it's sad.
He knows how to take the tops off of his tippy cups. He also knows that the ones where he can't take the lids off ... he can turn upside down and they'll go everywhere in an instant (grrr, can't they make a tippy cup that doesn't leak when held upside down??).
I've resorted to the tape. That's right. I tape the lid on!!! It's worked the last couple of days, but guess what ... today he learned to rip the tape off!!
I'm at my wits end. There has been so many milk and juice and water spills it's ridiculous!! Totally defeating the purpose of a tippy cup! He's not ready for a "big boy" cup yet ... not at all. I've tried. He throws the cup and well, you can imagine.
how about trying a different type of sippy- they have sport drink sippys now with straws where you flip up the straw.
What kind is he taking off? the ones that screw on? I use the disposable ones the the lids pop on or off and the new ones are harder to take off unless you have nails-maybe those might help LOL or perhaps you just need to use duct tape instead? who knows I wish I had a better solution for you.
AVent Magic cups! I have tried 5 different sippy cups, and have the same problem your having. The ones that they like the best are those cheap disposable ones that the water just drips out of and they can pop the lid of easy. they throw them and turn them upside down to watch the liquid drop out. The Avent magic cups (a little expensive) are the only ones I have found that absoluetly do not drip. The stopper is totall different from any of the other ones. buy just one and try it cause they are a little expensive, but if he likes it then your problem is solved. Put the lid on tight and he'll have a hard time getting it off. It screws like a bottle ring.
