I swear, some baby companies have it in for parents. For the very popular brand of straw cup we have, you can only buy replacement pieces online, where of course shipping/handing is outrageous for something that could be shipped for 75c in an envelope. Hell, I’d even pay $4.95 for my whole order.
Instead, I just bought four new cups (on sale at Kroger, of all places) for less than the S/H would have been for replacement pieces.
At least the old cups can be recycled, but it still bugs the crap out of me. What a waste.
