    Whatever your bub likes I'm a fan of the Nuby spout cups, plus a standard straw cup but it really comes down to what bub will use.

    Both my boys love the Nuby straw cup. I went through what felt like 50 to find one that they liked. I also found that the valve in a lot of cups made them difficult to get the liquid out of. Many make the valve easy to remove for when kids are learning though.

    I taught my kids to drink out of a straw really easily. I had one of those toddler juice boxes and got them to try drinking it. Every time they would suck I would squeeze the box a little to make liquid go up the straw. They learnt in about 5 minutes that sucking resulted in fluid and were happy as could be.

    Hi ladies thanks for your help my 13mth old has a advent one and Heinz one the advent she isn't too impressed with the water pours out too quick the Heinz one is ok. She's had a few straw drinks but squeezes it too hard but I've kept trying. I'm going to try to wean her off the bottles to sippy cups. Thanks again for your help.

    I used avent bottles for bubs so I just got the sipper spouts for them. They dont leak like i have found so many of the other brands do. Not sure which avent one you got but with the ones I have the child has to suck the liquid out as it has a valve and there is 2 sizes (yellow and green) as too how much flow you want. the green one has 3 pin holes the yellow a larger spout. Otherwise I use the heinz cup but not in the car as it goes everywhere lol

    I tried a couple of pricy ones and they were hopeless! Difficult to clean and hard to use. Then I discovered take and toss cups. They are great! Cheap, easy to use and clean and you can recycle them after while. I can give DS a fresh one every day while the others are being washed in the dishwasher. If we lose one it's no drama. Love them!
