What do other people use. I can rely on my older two 5/4 not to spill their drinks but I can't rely on them being put places where dd can't get to them. What do other people give their older children drinks in?
I find that the cheap sports bottles only last five minutes and the ones with pop up straws are even worse. I don't want anything too babyish though. any ideas?

I only let them drink water and only in the kitchen.

Ikea cups

5 and 4 they drink out of glasses but they areused to only drinking at the kitchen and dining room table.

They have plastic cups in their bedrooms for night time drinks.

5y+: as above, or normal glasses at the table.
