Sippy Cup Update

I received a HUGE blessing today. I got a call from Kera, a customer service rep for Nuby. She informed me that the "old" straws have been discontinued for 2 1/2 years so I guess that means I have been getting REALLY lucky in finding the ones I did.
Anyway.......She then told me that she had 2 boxes in her office - that had not been shipped out to stores!!!! YAY! That means I am getting 22 cups for $65.00 (which turns out to be a little over $3 a cup) PLUS, they offer free shipping on your first order for a special needs child. (Another HUGE blessing!) Of course I need to make room in her closet for storing all of these cups but I am SO happy!
Also, she informed me that the change in the straw was made so that they would last longer. The kids chew on the straws and were ruining them so they changed the shape and made them harder/more durable. Unfortunately, that means harder to suck on as well.
At least I have quite a large back up stock now! Thank you for everyone who has been looking for cups - I SO appreciate it!!

Woo hoo! So happy for you. We've been on the sippy cup/straw/drinking implement hunt before as well. It sucks! Ha ha, get it? OK, I'm a little silly.
