Mum offers stark warning to other parents as she discovered slimy, black mould hidden in her kid’s sippy cup | The Sun

A MUM has a stark warning for other parents after realising her child's sippy cup was covered in mould.

Her daughter was using the 360 cup at school, and her daughter had accidentally brought it home – and it was lucky she did.


TikTok user @danit___ decided to give the cup a clean and what she discovered was grizzly.

She opened the lid to discover it was riddled with black, slimy mould, and her daughter had been drinking out of it for months.

"GROSS,” the concerned mum wrote on the clip. “This explains her constant stubborn cough.”

The 31-year-old, who hasn't revealed her name, then showed what the cup should like when it is clean compared to the one her daughter had been drinking out of.

She revealed the cups had been at her daughter's pre-school for six months, and warned other parents to make sure they cleaned the cups thoroughly.

In the comments of the video, she claimed she didn't blame the school but wanted to highlight why it was important to keep them clean.

She wrote: "“This is not an ‘I’m mad about it post, just an awareness spread for others that use them & don’t know either.”

The video has racked in over two million views, with many parents taking to the comments section divided about who was responsible to wash the cups.

One wrote: "I work in a preschool and we send their cups home each day so families can wash them."

"If you’re required to bring these specific cups then they should be required to know how to clean them. This isn’t ok at all," another claimed.

A third argued: "If you’re required to leave it, they’re required to clean it. Not making kids drink mould is a basic in childcare."

Another user commented: "I work at a day care and we completely take apart all cups/bottles before washing and sanitizing them. This is just laziness on their part."

"Yikes. I think after that, I would be bringing in new cups daily, and taking the old ones home to wash. Sorry you had to find that," exclaimed a fifth person.
