Searching for “the right” sippy cup? Munchkin might have what you need!
Discovering “the right” sippy cup seems to be just as hard as finding “the right” stroller. Recently I had the opportunity to test out the Munchkin Mighty Grip 10 oz. Spill Proof Cup. To be completely honest, I had my doubts. I had tried the smaller version of this cup when my little guy first started transitioning to cups and it did not go well. I decided to that it was worth another shot though… a 6 month old with a cup compared to an 11 month old with a cup are 2 very different things!
The Munchkin Mighty Grip 10 oz. Spill Proof Cup is designed with an easy grip shape, a soft silicon spout, and a built-in leak proof valve. The cups are dishwasher safer (top rack) and are one of the more affordable sippy cups on the market.
The opportunity to test these Munchkin cups came at a pretty good time. We were planning to travel soon and I was hoping to sneak bottles out of the picture so that there would be less baby gear to pack. Since the Munchkin Mighty Grip 10 oz. Spill Proof Cup has such a soft spout, I decided it would be a good place to start. One night, this cup replaced my little guy’s nighttime bottle and I have to say, it went pretty well. 1o ounces of milk were downed pretty quickly!
The only downside I see with this cup is that it is tricky to travel with and takes a minute to assemble. The valve/spot section of the cup comes through the ring and has to line up with specific notches on the ring. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon, but it does take a tiny bit of extra time. In addition, traveling with this cup must be done CAREFULLY. When I was running errands I just tossed the cup into my durse (diaper bag/purse) and was on my way. Well, the silicon valve/spout got pushed in by something in the bag and the entire cup leaked. If you decide this cup is right for you, just make sure you know the lid is a little sneaky and sensitive… and can be leaky if pushed.
I had originally sold my smaller Munchkin Mighty Grip Cups because I thought they were useless. Well now, these two Munchkin Mighty Grip 10 oz. Spill Proof Cups have made it through several “clean out the cabinet cuts” and seem to be pretty useful.
