CLEANING THE EDDY KIDS BOTTLE
We can’t offer up the bottle cleaning equivalent to the five-second rule, you just gotta do it. It won’t take long, and your kids will be eternally grateful. We recommend first removing your one-piece bite valve and straw for cleaning. It’s easy to do. (Yes, it looks like a lot of steps here, but it really is easy):

 

  1. Flip the stem to the open position by pulling on stem tab.
  2. Turn cap over and pull out the straw.
  3. Grab the flat finger tab on the base of the Big Bite Valve under the cap.
  4. In one firm motion, pull the Big Bite Valve component out of the cap.
  5. Clean the bite valve and cap by hand or in the top rack of a dishwasher.

 

If you use a dishwasher, a top-rack basket for small parts is ideal, and it’s good to avoid high-heat settings like 'sanitary clean' or 'heat boost' which may distort plastic components. If you clean by hand, use warm, soapy water. If you like to use a bottle brush, make sure it doesn't have exposed metal edges that could cut the silicone, then insert the brush into the open end at the base of the valve. We don't recommend forcing a brush of any kind through the Big Bite Valve slit (where you drink from) as this could damage the sealing surfaces of the Big Bite Valve.

To re-insert the bite valve back into the cap:

 

  1. Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve passed through originally) to the open position. You should be able to look through both the opening in the cap and the opening in the collar.
  2. Turn the cap over and orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the back of the cap (where the handle loop is).
  3. Insert the tip of the bite valve through the cap and the collar until the end of the Big Bite Valve peeks through the outer end of the collar.
  4. Turn the cap over and grab the end of the Big Bite Valve and pull through until it sits in the grooves incorporated into the collar. If you pull the Big Bite Valve too far out these grooves will be visible. Just press the valve back down until these grooves are seated.
  5. Turn the cap over and press on the base of the valve to make sure it is seated.
  6. Insert the straw (either end it doesn't matter) into the hole in the valve base. Don't over-insert the straw just until you feel resistance.

 

FAQ

How do I put the Big Bite™ Valve back in the cap?
Follow these instructions to re-insert the Big Bite™ Valve component:

  1. Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve passed through originally) to the open position. You should be able to look through both the opening in the cap and the opening in the collar.
  2. Turn the cap over and orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the back of the cap (where the handle loop is). Insert the tip of the bite valve through the cap and the collar until the end of the Big Bite™ Valve peeks through the outer end of the collar.
  3. Turn the cap over and grab the end of the Big Bite™ Valve and pull through until it sits in the grooves incorporated into the collar. If you pull the Big Bite™ Valve too far out these grooves will be visible. Just press the valve back down until these grooves are seated.
  4. Turn the cap over and press on the base of the valve to make sure it is seated.
  5. Insert the straw (either end, it doesn’t matter) into the hole in the valve base. Don’t over-insert the straw, just until you feel resistance.

Can I use a bottle brush on the Big Bite™ Valve?
Yes. The Big Bite™ Valve is made from tough silicone material that can be cleaned with a bottle brush similar to those designed for baby bottle nipples. Make sure the brush doesn’t have exposed metal edges that could cut the silicone. Then insert the brush into the open end at the base of the valve. We don’t recommend forcing a brush of any kind through the Big Bite™ Valve slit (where you drink from) as this could damage the sealing surfaces of the Big Bite™ Valve.

How is the eddy™ Kids Bottle cap different from the regular CamelBak eddy™ cap?
The eddy™ Kids Bottle and eddy™ both feature the easy-to-use, spill-proof Big Bite™ Valve technology, a convenient straw-feed format, and flip-close-to-shutoff stem configuration. The eddy™ Kids Bottle cap, however, features a Kids'-specific Big Bite™ Valve and stem design made from a single piece of medical grade silicone. This one-piece construction prevents a child from pulling the bite valve off accidentally, but makes it easy for a parent to remove and place in the dishwasher for cleaning.

Can I use carbonated beverages?
We do not recommend the use of carbonated beverages in the CamelBak™ Kids’ Bottle. Because of the spill-proof sealed construction of the bottle, carbonated beverages can cause pressure build-up that while not dangerous, can result in an experience like opening a shaken-up can of soda. To use with carbonated beverages, we recommend that you remove the straw and drink using the “tip and sip” method like an ordinary sippy cup.

Can I freeze the bottle?
You can freeze the bottle but make sure:

We also recommend that the bite valve stem NOT be flipped up or down if there is any frozen water in the tube. Wait until thawed.

Can I use the CamelBak™ eddy™ Kids Bottle in high-altitude/ low-pressure environments? (i.e. airplanes, mountain altitudes, etc)
Yes, but with extra care because pressure can force liquid out throuth the straw. Always keep the bottle right side up and the bite valve in the closed position. Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of “spurt” during the first sip.

  1. The bottle is not completely full when you do this (we recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water

We are a family of 6, We bought our first kid one for our oldest daughter for when she went to dance we loved them so much all 4 of our kids (2girls 2boys) have 3 each so we own almost every design. I absolutly love them, they don't leak and are easy enough that our youngest learned to drink out of them at 6 months when she could crawl and get to her siblings. If they push the valve down it can come loose and leak but we have only had this happen once. We also only put water in theirs because they love to use them and then I know they are getting a fair share of water and not drinking junk all day long. Camelbak Keep up the great cups we Love Them!!

I bought this water bottle for my 3 year old and there are a few design flaws I wish Camelbak could fix. One is that water collects in the spout and has the tendency to spurt out from time to time. The collected water will also leak out of the spout slowly creating a puddle around wherever it is sitting. Also, it doesn't fit in the cup holders of my child's carseat, or in the cup holders on the back doors of my vehicle. It's quite annoying as my child will put it in the cup holders then not be able to get it out, creating a lot of drama while I'm driving. Other than that it's a fairly sturdy bottle and I like that the straw is wide and doesn't slip between the grid of the dishwasher's cutlery holder. Still, the other issues have made it so we only use it when all the other water bottles are dirty.

        My 2 year old loves her water bottles. She has 2 and would much rather use a water bottle rather than use a sippy cup. We've taken them on walks, to the park, on short vacations etc.

            After many failed sippy cup and bottle attempts, at last we have found a vehicle for baby beverages! Our 10-month old was able to use this bottle right away, and loves it. And it's big enough to last her a long time. So glad to have discovered Camelbak!

                        We had high hopes that this would be the "perfect cup" for all purposes for our 2 1/2 yr. old. Not so; while it looks great, he likes to push the spout in and the spout seeps non-stop leaving a puddle wherever the cup may be. Not good...So, I attempted to send an email to ask how to correct this issue. The email is unable to be sent to the address given on this website. I thought that this was a reputable company. But, I was certainly glad to see other reviews stating the same problems as ours; I thought it was operator error on our parts. But, it is a design flaw. Very sorry that I purchased 3 cups.

                              My sister bought this for our daughter because she would always steal my sister's water bottle. And then when our son got old enough to start stealing from his sister we got him one too.

                              I've never had a problem with leaking and these cups have been thrown on the ground from various high places, fallen out of the car, kicked, and finally, chewed on by our 80lb boxer pit mix. Which the only thing he was able to damaged was the rubber piece the water comes out of. So when my sister informed me I could buy replacement parts on the website ... here I am. And then I see $5 flat shipping... I'm certainly buying the rest of the designs we don't have.

                                                  I don't understand how no one can manage to actually make a SPILL PROOF bottle/sippy/whatever you want to call them. AND they CLAIM to be spill proof, which just makes me more infuriated! This bottle spills every single time it's tipped over, even if the straw is not pushed down. The water comes out of the straw and I've even had it come from the side of the bottle where the lid screws on and yes it was screwed on tight! Ridiculous. Wish someone could make a legitimately good product once in a while. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
