Pros:Easy to hold, soft spout, dishwasher safe
The Bottom Line: Nuby No Spill Cup is an excellent first sippy cup for small babies.
During my daughter's six month checkup, her pediatrician declared that she had to be off all bottles by 12 months of age. With that goal in mind, I picked up a few brands of sippy cups to use for her (then) occasional cups of juice or water. The Nuby was the only sippy cup she ever took to, and I haven't tried to transition her to others. They are durable, leak-resistant, easy to clean, colorful and everything else I could ever want in a sippy cup.

I own about six of these Nuby cups, which I've purchased in single or double packs at Target or at my local grocery store. The colors are far from girly, and they aren't littered with licensed characters either. I own the cups in translucent purple, green, orange, blue and yellow colors. The color is deep enough to help me keep track of the cups so that I don't give my daughter a day-old cup of juice but light enough so that I can see the contents of the cup easily. They are dishwasher safe, and though all plastic baby feeding items are best washed in the sink because plastics can break down under the heat of the dishwasher, I always throw mine in the dishwasher and these cups don't look worn at all. The silicone spouts are just as clear as they were after the first cleaning.
My baby is 9 months old now, so she drinks from the Nuby cup in standing, sitting and - yes - even reclining positions without leaks from the cup itself. Of course she dribbles a bit of juice from her mouth onto her shirt now and again, but the only time I've ever seen leaking from the cap itself is when it was not screwed on properly. The caps twist on very easily, though it is a long twist so be prepared to use two hands and keep your thirsty baby out of your arms while you do your twisting.
There is no straw or valve here. It's just a spout with long perforations that open when your baby works on the spout with her lips. There seems to be just as much chewing as sucking involved here, which would make sense since my baby never really liked any of the sucking or valve-operated sippy cups I purchased.
I love the fact that these have two handles that are very easy for baby to grab and that the large bottom makes it very stable for babies learning how to pick up and set down their sippy cups. It also fits into my diaper bag nicely without leaking, even when I forget the hard plastic cover for the top. The cover snaps easily into place and washes just as easily as the rest of the cup in the top shelf of the dishwasher.
Nuby provided the first and only sippy cup my daughter took a liking too, helping us to get a head start on transitioning away from bottles. I suppose I should get her used to a few different kinds, but I'm reluctant to mess around with valves and hard spouts that she won't take to. I'd highly recommend the Nuby No Spill Cup to new moms who are looking for an easy sippy cup to begin using to give juices and water to their little ones.
