I'm really happy with my purchase of glass straws from Glass Dharma. The short 6.25 inch size is great for toddlers, and I find that using the straws helps Baby Bootie drink more liquid than if she is just holding the glass. You can choose from different lengths and widths of straws and they come with a brush for cleaning and you can also have the option of little glass dots on your straws to keep them from rolling off the table. You can also buy bamboo carrying cases or hemp sleeves if you want to take your straws out to dinner and not litter the planet with yet another plastic straw. We've used these straws in a glass cup on a glass table with normal toddler spazzing out with no breakage, and the straws are also fine in the dishwasher. The straws are made of borosilicate glass, which is the same strong glass used for Pyrex dishes. You just might want to get more than four straws because our girl wants to use them all the time.
