when it was time for sippy cup action, i went to the store and bought about 5 different kinds of cups to try: all were bpa-free and under $10. here are my faves:
i have been a loyal and loving user of the bornfree brand of bottles since day one. they are bpa-free and have an air valve that reduces colic and ear infection. when i registered i got a gift set that included a trainer cup. so i broke that out and wasn't surprised at how much i liked it. it doesn't leak, which is kinda my number one criteria from any cup, and the soft mouth piece makes it an easy transition from bottle to cup. i also love that i can use my nipples from my other bf bottles. it's not the sexiest sippy cup on block but super solid.
the dr.weil sippy cups are super stylish (sexy) and i love the proportions--perfect for little hands and mouths. i was a little concerned about how easy it was to use, since when i tired to suck on it, i couldn't get anything out, but baby had no trouble after a few tries.
the munchkin brand makes all sorts of great products for feeding. i really like these cups. the only drawback is you can't use it with out the handles, but that isn't a huge issue.
bornfree very nicely sent me one of their twist n'pop straw drinking cups to test out. i love it! the straw is a soft plastic and it closes with a nice sliding mechanism. so when it rolls out of your stroller on to the filthy street, if it's closed, the straw stays clean. brilliant!
