How to open a Tommee Tippee sippy cup without breaking your nails

A helping hand.

If you Google "How to open a Tommee Tippee sippy cup without breaking your nails" or "How to open a Tommee Tippee sippy cup without swearing" the results are disappointing. 

So I continued to swear at another broken nail, or at worse another complete fail at opening the d**n thing!

Why is it so difficult? I know, so Bear can't open it. OK I get that but please give me written instructions, I promise I won't tell him!

Bear can open it, he likes to throw it to the floor when he's had enough to drink. Passing it back to me is not an option. After many hits on the floor the lid loosens, but I do not want to spend all day throwing the thing to the floor so I can refill with fresh water.

Then one day whilst washing the cup I had an Eureka! moment, that funny little curve where the base meets the lid! A teaspoon would fit in there! YES! YES! It does. Just a little twist and it's off.

I thought "silly me, I must have missed that on the packaging" but no, nothing on there.

On their website? No.

On Mumsnet? No.

There was another thing I didn't know until I was told, on facebook actually, about taking babies vests off by pulling over their shoulders and down. Designed to stop the poo, that escapes from the nappy, from being wiped on their faces. I didn't know that either (sorry son, sorry daughter). I thought they had envelope tops because babies heads were so big.

Ah, you knew! Why didn't you tell me? Are there any other secrets you'd like to tell me about?




  1. Oh, if only I'd read that about the Tippee cups a few years earlier. :-) x

    1. I nearly threw it away......then light bulb moment!

  2. Thanks for this tip! There’ll be a bit less swearing around the house now.
