It bothers me so much to see all the negative reviews because this cups leaks; moms complaining of stained couches and rugs. This cup is not leak-proof and doesn't claim to be. You should buy this cup if you want to help your toddler transition to a real drinking cup, if you want to use a cup that's BPA-free and if you want to minimize the risk of tooth decay and middle ear infections that come along with sucking from a bottle or sippy cup with a strong valve. Period.

This cup is designed to let the liquid flow - free-flowing. This means that your child will become accustomed to tilting the cup to get liquid as opposed to sucking hard. By not having to suck hard, the teeth are better protected from the sugars in milk and juice that pool in the mouth from sucking. The ears are better protected from not having to suck. You can't have it both ways - by sticking a leak-proof valve on, you force your child to suck and lose these other benefits. If it's more important at this time to have a stain-free home, get a cup with a leak-proof valve, but this one isn't it.

With that said, there is a valve on this cup that works like this: Your child turns the cup upside down. The liquid will pour out fast and furious for a few moments until a vacuum is created, then no more liquid will come out. But, each time the cup is turned upright again, that vacuum will break and liquid once again will pour out. Basically, if your child wants to just dump the contents of the cup, the valve will prevent the whole cup from being poured out. If your child wants to keep tossing the cup, you'll have liquid splaying about.

In my opinion, a sippy with a leak-proof valve teaches nothing. It's just a toddlerized bottle. So this cup was perfect for what I was looking for. It works great for us and I would recommend it highly to friends who want to teach their children to really drink from a cup. Incidentally, I use it without the handles. My son was able to hold his own bottle from 3 months on. Our drinking cups don't have handles, so I felt he might as well be accustomed to go holding a cup the way we do. I love that you can take the handles off for that reason.

I have the other bottles for my daughter to feed her formula and love them, but when I bought this sippy cup for my daughter it was not as great as the bottle fed ones. It leaks everywhere adn I thought it was bc I wasn't tightening it enough. I even took off the handles thinking maybe it was not closing well bc of that, but it wasnt that. It spills everywhere! I mean, its great how she doesnt have to suck like the other sippy cups which makes her frustrated bc its too hard to suck juice out of, but this sippy cup it just comes flowing out when she puts her mouth on it. They need to invent it where it doesnt leak as much when my infant shakes it around

Very disappointed, leaks with handles on

        Comments about Born Free Inc BornFree 9 oz. Drinking Cup:

        Before even giving this cup to my son, I filled it with water, put the handles on and closed it up. I tested it and without even tipping the bottle over it leaked through the neck! The only way to stop it from leaking was to remove the handles, that was a waste. Furthermore, my son did not like the bottle much and ended up only drinking half his milk. I am very disappointed with this purchase and had more faith in the Born Free brand.

          Comments about Born Free Inc BornFree 9 oz. Drinking Cup:

          I spent timeless days going from store to store to find the perfect sippy cup. My favorite with my first child was the Gerber but they are no longer made. So I had to go on the hunt for a similar one. The reason this sippy cup is so perfect is simple. Its all in the spout. I was looking for something that is not too hard that it is going to affect my childs teeth, and also not too soft to replicate a bottle. I wanted a nice transition into sippy cups. My child loves the cup and I would recommend anyone looking for an easy transition to try this cup.

            MY baby had this 1 day and was able to stretch the hole in the spout to the point of liquid pouring out! This is not a good drinking cup! Babies R Us would not take it back due to the fact that it is considered a hygienic product and would not be able to resale it once my baby had used it. Therefore, I am contacting the manufacturer!

                  Comments about Born Free Inc BornFree 9 oz. Drinking Cup:

                  My littlest child is a special needs child and refused all other sippy cups. She loves this sippy cup!... I hate it, it leaks horribly when the handles are on (we have several & they ALL leak when the handles are in place) and when we travel I have to line the bottom of the cooler with paper towels to catch the leaks. The handles need to be redesigned! Not to mention the price is extremely high compared to other sippy cups.

                    Love this drinking cup. It is NOT leak proof and I see nowhere on the description that says it is. This is a hard spout and not the soft training spout. The idea is to train toddlers how to learn to drink from a cup. Yes it keeps liquids from dumping all over, no it does not keep it from running out of the spout if tossed on the floor. This is good for teeth and for ears because they don't have to suck on it and while it took my son about a week to get the hang of it, he drinks like a pro from it now. Next is the transition to a regular cup :)

                      PARENTS...this cup is intended to get children off of the bottle. The drinking cup is a FREE FLOWING CUP with a little bit of control. THE TRAINING CUP from bornfree does not leak...and to be honest the training cup is just like a bottle. Buying the training cup would be a waste of money. However, I started using the DRINKING CUP, the free flowing one, when my daughter was 11 months and shortly after that she was able to drink from a regular adult cup. This cup is intended to train babies. So if you let your children walk around with their cups, they will put them down, and then the contents of the cup with also spill all over the place. It is going to happen. My daughter knows the drill..when she sees the cup she goes to her seat. If my daughter is not in her seat, she does not get her cup. This is how we have taught her to sit at the table to eat and to PREVENT ALL OF THESE SPILLS THAT YOU SPEAK OF. The first few times of your children using this cup...it will be an adjustment but they have to learn! I LOVE THIS CUP...IT SERVED ITS PURPOSE AND IT IS AWESOME..it is way better than all of the other sippy cups out there that will make the poor little ones suck on it so hard...it is terrible for their ears!!!! I would definitely recommend this cup to everyone i know!!

                      Great bottle I never liked the spill proof kind because it's the same concept of drinking from a bottle. This bottle serves its purpose of breaking the bottle habit. My 18month old had a messy first time but once she learned how to control the free flow she got the hang of it quickly. This bottle is great to transition from the bottle, don't ruin your kids teeth and ear health by letting them overuse the baby bottle.
