The Nuby sippy gripper spouts are bpa free silicone. They are pretty durable but as every sippy cup manufacturer warns, don't let your child chew on the spouts. If you see any type of wear or tear or rip in the spout, it's time to get a new one. They do seem to be pretty resilient too and it beats buying a new cup when the cup you have is perfectly good. It also helps keep unnecessary plastic out of the landfills.

The Nuby sippy gripper cup is the number one selling cup in the world. The cups do last for years - we still have one from 7 years ago. The spouts, however, may last for a month, maybe two, if your baby doesn't have teeth yet. Once your baby gets teeth, that becomes a whole different story! Teeth and silicone spouts do not go very well together. Your baby will start to bite because the spout feels good when s/he is cutting teeth. They may even run with the sippy cup hanging from their mouths as they try to get away from you when you try to take it. Bait and switch usually works though. If you see your baby running with it, find his or her favorite new toy or food and make a trade. That way you know your baby will be safe from biting the spout to pieces!
