How do I choose a children’s water bottle?

The news

As a parent, it’s essential to ensure that your child stays well hydrated throughout the day, whether at school, during sports activities or on family outings. A suitable children’s water bottle is the ideal accessory to meet this need. 

But with so many options available on the market, it can be hard to know where to start. Petit-Fernand has created this guide to help you make an informed decision about children’s bottles.  

Which bottle cap should I choose for nursery school?

When your child starts nursery school, it’s important to choose the right type of cap for their water bottle. Safety and practicality are the two key aspects to consider.  

The leakproof cap

For children aged 2 to 4, you can opt for the leakproof cap. You just need to know how to turn a quarter turn to remove the safety catch and drink. From this age, if they can drink from a straw, they can also switch to a straw-equipped bottle.

The spout cap

One of the most popular options is the spout cap, which makes it easy for your child to drink without spilling any liquid. This type of cap usually has a locking mechanism to prevent leaks, which is ideal for when your child is on the move or carrying their water bottle in their rucksack.  

Children’s bottle with straw

Another common choice is the cap with a built-in straw for a practical and hygienic drinking experience. All your child has to do is pinch and suck on the straw to drink without spilling. Make sure you choose a cap that’s easy to open and close, so your child can manage to use it on their own.
