90 of the Safest Sippy Cups and Drink Bottles for Kids

90 of the Safest Sippy Cups and Drink Bottles for Kids
What's that? You need to find the safest sippy cups and drink bottles for kids, you say? No problem! We've just finished wading through several hundred options to put together the largest, most comprehensive list in existence to help make your life just a little bit easier.

After weeks of contacting companies, extracting answers, and poring over information, we were able to compile a master list of 90 products confirmed free of endocrine disrupting chemicals that meet the following criteria for safety:

  1. No BPA or BPS
  2. No recycling code #7 plastics
  3. No PVC, phthalates, polystyrene or melamine
  4. No “proprietary” materials
  5. Heavy metal safe

You'll see that the sippy cups and drink bottles we included are mostly made of glass, stainless steel, polypropylene and silicone.

Don't forget to check out our guide to Decoding the Mystery of Safer vs Toxic Plastic so you can look at your current kids cups and bottles to help you determine what materials they're constructed of.

P.S. Did you know that BPA and BPS were recently shown to disrupt thyroid hormone too? Learn more about it here!

NOTE: We contacted as many companies as we possibly could, and there were only two brands that didn't respond: NUK and Gerber (same company), although we did include one NUK product in the guide because we'd previously known its material makeup.

UPDATE 2/27/17: Lead-positive testing of Green Sprouts sippy cup with glass insert has surfaced, so we've removed it from our guide in an effort to provide complete and accurate information.

    I was wondering if you also tested the Camelbak “Eddy” kids water bottle & how it rated.

    • The Soft Landing Sisters February 25, 2016 at 9:04 am #

      Hi Sonya, Camelbak Eddy bottles are made of a plastic that falls into the recycling code #7 category, so we don’t recommend using them. ~Laura

  2. Melissa February 27, 2016 at 10:43 pm #

    Thank you so much! You guys are awesome! I’m wondering if the sippy cup lids for LifeFactory glass bottles make the cut?

    • The Soft Landing Sisters February 28, 2016 at 8:34 am #

      You’re so welcome, Melissa! Yes, LifeFactory’s sippy cup lids are made of polypropylene, so they’re an excellent choice. ~Laura

  3. The Soft Landing Sisters February 28, 2016 at 8:51 am #

    You’re very welcome! We haven’t held each of these cups in our hands, but we’ve confirmed with each manufacturer directly to verify materials. We do have to depend on the companies’ representatives to give us accurate information, but it’s been a reliable method in our experience.

    We spoke with a representative from Tommee Tippee during our research, and she informed us that all Tommee Tippee sippy cups are made of recycling code #5 polypropylene, however, we’ve since taken them off of our list due to the recent incidents of mold growing in unreachable valve parts. ~Laura

    I’m SO happy I came across this list. Thank you!!!! When you spoke with Thermos did they specify what kind of plastic they use for their lids/spouts/straws?

    • The Soft Landing Sisters March 10, 2016 at 9:42 am #

      You’re very welcome, Stacey! Thermos lids, straws and spouts are made from either polypropylene or silicone. ~Laura

    I noticed that the skip hop stainless steel bottles are on the list, but not the plastic straw bottles. Is there a reason why? Do you know what the plastic ones are made of? And are they safe?
    Also, have you checked into the munchkin miracle 360 cup? Are they safe? They say BPA free, but I’m not sure if they are safe or not.
    Thank you so much for your hard work on this blog!

  6. Lanae Christiansen November 18, 2016 at 12:12 pm #

    Are the Contigo autospout plastic water bottles safe? I only see the stainless steel one listed. Thank you for all the work you have done! Also, on another list of safe baby food storage containers I was wondering if you have researched baby bullet and sage spoonfuls? Thank you again

    • The Soft Landing Sisters November 21, 2016 at 4:53 pm #

      Last time we checked with Contigo, they were using Tritan Copolyester in their plastic water bottles. And even though it’s BPA-free, there are several tests showing estrogenic activity (EA) in that plastic, so we recommend steering clear of it. There lids and caps, on the other hand, are made from polypropylene, which is a safer plastic.

      We have researched the Baby Bullet and while it used to be made from SAN (a more stable, non-leaching plastic), they switched to Tritan a few years ago so we no longer recommend it for blending hot food, steaming, or storing food.

      We haven’t looked into Safe Spoonfuls yet, but I’ll bet the company would tell you what type of plastic they use if you contact them directly. Then come back and let us know!

      Hope that helps!

    Hello, I saw that the thermos foogo 10oz straw bottle is included but I didn’t see the funtainers (12oz). Does it mean that thermos foogo funtainers (12oz) is not safe?

    Hi there! Anything about the Oxo Tot line of sippy cups or straw cups? Also Wow cups? Thanks so much for your work!

  10. Mary March 11, 2017 at 9:30 pm #

    Is the new stainless steel version of the Munchkin 360 cup safe? At first glance it seems ok, but some of the responses the customer service department has provided on Amazon seem pretty shady.

    • Shawn March 21, 2017 at 5:45 pm #

      Safe is relative. What are you looking for? It seems to me that the only change is the stainless steel cup. The top looks exactly the same. #5 polypropylene plastic – one of the “safer” plastics – and the silicone sealer top. The beverage needs to travel through the plastic top to get to your child’s mouth, so it that fits into what you are looking for in terms of safety… then yes. If not, then no.

      • Mary March 22, 2017 at 2:24 pm #

        I agree with what you are saying and would be comfortable using this particular cup if not for some of the shady responses Munchkin customer service has been giving on Amazon. For example, someone asked if the silicone part of the cup is 100% silicone and they replied:

        “Good Afternoon MFDM, The Munchkin, Inc. Stainless Steel Miracle 360 Cup is made of Olefin Block Copolymer, Polypropylene , Silicone , Stainless Steel. This is a list of materials used in the entire cup, please note that we would not be able to provide you with a breakdown of what you are requesting as that falls under the realm of proprietary information. The surface elements used on the product fall within the acceptable standards as currently defined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International.”

        It was a freaking yes or no question. Either it’s 100% silicone or it’s not. She’s not asking for any of your trade secrets. If it’s all silicone just say yes and it’s not a secret anyway. If it’s not, just say no and explain that you can’t divulge the details. Way to inspire confidence in your product.

  11. Shawn March 21, 2017 at 5:39 pm #

    it would be helpful if you put more information under each item. For example you list that the Thinkbaby straw bottle is made of stainless steel but what is the straw made of? Silicone or plastic? And does the beverage come into contact with what is obviously a plastic top? As conscientious parents we want to know everything – every detail – and we have searched out your site hoping to find that information.
