Moldy Tommee Tippee sippee cups – A thing of the past?

Tommee Tippee sippee cupsSo if you guys recall, I did a feature previously on the Tommee Tippee sippee cups. Moms around the world were claiming that these non-spill cups were prone to mold build up. Pictures circulated the net and the drama was rife. As you can believe, some moms were  down right furious, while others were willing to give the popular baby brand another try. I fell into the latter group because I had always been a huge fan of their stuff. Their Closer To Nature bottles were a lifesaver when I struggled to transition Curly from breast to bottle. Sure, the hard to clean non-spill valves on the sippee cup was a concern for me too, but surely the clever people over at Tommee Tippee would do something about it. Right? Well…

Tommee Tippee sippee cupsI wrote in to Tommee Tippee South Africa and to say that they were helpful and quick to reply is an understatement. They were more than willing to listen to my concern and even sent me a pack of transparent valves to replace the older valves with. The transparency of the newer valves made it easier for me to make sure that the bottles were clean. But it was still just not enough.

Tommee Tippee sippy cupA few months later, I was reintroduced to a snazzier, more hygienic Tommee Tippee sippee cup. And I was most impressed! For starters the cup has a brand new valve that is slimmer and easier to clean. It has a transparent cover that is removable and it is generally just a better design, when compared to the previous one. Very nice!

And secondly, the new cup styles are totally rockin’! They come in a range of bright colors and are designed to get your toddler to develop those grown-up drinking skills. Your toddler will agree – life is too short to be walking around with a boring sippy cup, yo!

Tommee Tippee sippy cupCurly has been loving her Active Drinking Cup. It has a soft spout and easy grip sides. The Sports Bottle is also pretty rad! It has a non spill spout – like a “big people” sports bottle – and a 300ml capacity, to keep your toddie well hydrated. These cool new Tommee Tippee cups are all lightweight, BPA free and have an insulated base, to keep drinks cool.

In my most humblest spreadsheet brain opinion, I think that Tommee Tippee has totally redeemed itself with the new cup designs. They took their customer’s concerns into consideration (pulling thousands of the previous cups from store shelves) and gave us something that is a much better fit for our kids.

So what do you guys think? Would you give Tommee Tippee a try again? Moms who are TT fans, have you tried out their latest offerings? Drop your thoughts in the comment section.

    I actually took our one out this weekend and fully intended to email TT today and ask them wtf, because I also saw these claims a while ago and hoped that somehow the design had changed. I was horrified to discover my son’s sippy cup valve looking so disgusting. I took it apart (a mission on it’s own) and cleaned it, but after a while, it was the same again. It’s way too much effort for a sippy cup.

    Not sure I’d trust them again.

    I am a huge fan of Tommi Tippee bottles too! My 26 month old daughter has only ever used the sippy-cups! I too love the cool designs! We have them in many different designs and sizes! She never drank the “teat” bottles (side note – I was her teat and pacifier for 26 months ) but loves ALL her sippy cups! We have fortunately only ever used the sippy cups with the transparent values (with my eldest who is nearly 6 years) which means we never had an issue with mould etc!

    We generally go between avent and tommu tippee for drinking cups (mostly avent). No issues with tommy tippee but will keep a look out for the new sippees. My baby is 9 months and we will be using the toddler suppose soon! I’m glad they redeemed themselves
