Sip & Spin Fun Straw Cups – Hydration Motivation!
The Sip & Spin straw cup has a unique fun-factor – a pinwheel in the lid that spins as you sip. The racing trucks and soaring butterflies can encourage playing kids to take a water break, cheer up and rehydrate a sick child, or motivate a toddler to transition from a bottle or spouted sippy to a straw cup. The interactive pinwheel can also be a fun motivator for children with feeding aversions (transition from g-tube to oral feeding, sensory sensitivity, etc.) and other feeding disorders to drink from a straw cup.
As parents, we know what a pain it can be to clean kids’ cups, so we made sure all the components come apart easily for cleaning and are dishwasher safe. The Sip & Spin straw cup is a cute gift and a fun way to keep kids hydrated… Hydration Motivation!
Child Development FUNdamentals
- Play isn’t purely for fun – play is the tool children use to learn to solve problems
- Use fun to help transition from a bottle or sippy spout to a straw cup – the AAP recommends to begin weaning at age 1, as prolonged bottle use can cause tooth decay and encourage children to drink much more milk than they need
- Use fun to teach toddlers to drink using a mature drinking and swallowing pattern – sip from a valve-free straw instead of suckle from a bottle or sippy spout
- Use fun to motivate healthy hydration – children age 1-3 should drink about 4 cups of water per day
