Mom Discovers Why Baby is Sick AFTER She Examines Sippy Cup and Sees THIS

Children get sick from time to time. It’s a common occurrence. However, if the child doesn’t get better and the cause of their illness isn’t apparent, that is when parents tend to get really stressed out.

This is exactly what happened to Penny and Simon Powell. Their son wasn’t getting better, and they didn’t know what to do. Then, Penny had an idea. She broke open the leak proof spout of his son’s sippy cup and found every parent’s worst nightmare: mold.

The cup in question is called a Tommy Tippee Cup, and this seems to be a common problem.

Take a look at the video to hear the whole story!

Just terrible.

Even sippy cups that are mold free are not always safe. Researchers have found that even BPA-free plastics (commonly used for sippy cups) will leak endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Endocrine disrupting chemicals are associated with a whole list of health problems.

Is your child’s sippy cup safe?

Sippy cups, those reusable water bottles, even those electric/ battery operated toothbrushes all get a build up of bacteria and mold growing in the parts you can’t see in to. I showed my sister the crap that grows in the head of one of those tooth brushes when one failed to operate and I took the head apart ( the part that goes in your mouth) and showed her what the inside looked like, disgusting and with no way of effectively cleaning it. She’s never bought her children another one. I take the spout part of my “Camelback” ( not a cheap knockoff brand mind you) water bottle apart and use a pipe cleaner to get all the stuff that grows in the part you can’t see into ( and all it put in it is water ) We put juice and other sugary stuff in children’s Sippy cups with hidden places in the spout part and seriously expect it not to grow bacteria and mold ? Sippy cups for kids might seem like a good idea but is your child’s health worth the risk of a little convenience ?

    The sippy cups my grandsons use have covers that come apart easily for washing. The valve comes off and is put in the utensil basket and the cover is washed on the top rack.

    Of course they could go back to the simplicity of what I think of as the “original” sipping cup: the Tupperware bell tumbler with a sipper seal. There is nothing simpler to clean than that! However, it is not leak proof.

do these people that use sippy cups & sinus bulbs not understand that you have to wash these things? seriously! if you use a travel mug to carry your coffee to work in, surely you wash it so why would you not wash sippy cups? take the thing apart & wash it. where’s the common sense today? they can be taken apart, soaked in hot soapy water & can be cleaned, then air dry.

    The design on these specific cups is the problem the only way to open the valve is to crack it open, breaking it and making in unusable. You can’t take it apart and clean it if you wanted to.

This particular brand of sippy cup does this. I doesnt matter how you clean it deep inside that white part holds water for some reason. I found out about it a month ago when i decided to take a sip from the bottle before i handed it to my daughter
I literally almost threw up. I would just suggest a brand new cup of a different brand.
