    Default Trainer/Sippy Cup Recommendations

    Hi,

    I'm after recommendations for a training (or sippy) cup suitable for a 6 month old.

    I've seen a few brands that are non-spill and have spouts made of different materials (soft/hard etc).

    What did you find worked best?
    How easy were they for bub to hold and drink from?
    What size is good to start with? I've seen ones from 150ml to 260ml.

    Thanks!

    We used the pigeon mag mag for dd1 and will again for dd2. It has 3 tops (teat, spout, straw) for them to progress with.

    Pigeon mag mag are great as they help transition. In fact. .I have one I don't use as my dd didn't take to it as the spout was a bit big for her mouth. I'd be happy to send it to you!! just pm me. Serious offer.. is just sitting in my cupboard. It's like new.

    As for other cups... after trying many with this help of our speech therapist (dd has feeding/drinking issues) the take and toss ones are the best I think. Well they worked awesome for us and lots in my DIG said try them!
    One thing that some cups don't help is learning to control the flow of fluid themselves. .as they have valves that stop it unless they suck.. which means they're not really doing much different to sucking on a bottle. If you try you can remove the valve once bub gets used to it.

    Also trying a straw cup can be a good idea. I bought a cheap big w dymples one but then discovered this one that has a weighted straw so it doesn't matter if bub tips it up or anything. . the straw stays in the liquid. It's pretty cool. I think maybe b box brand or something.

    I bought a Mag Mag for my DD2. We skipped the teat and we are on the spout. It's nice and soft.
    Then when baby is ready just move on to the straw (same cup, different top).

    My DD went straight to a straw cup at 6mo. She is bf and never took a bottle. One day I saw her drinking water from my water bottle which has a straw so I just bought one for her. She has the tupperware one now.

    I bought a bunch of different kinds (pigeon, tommee tippee, nuk, take & toss, miomee) some with straws, some teats, some with handles, some without. My (bf) 8 month old can now use any of them as well as drinking from a normal lidless cup without handles (granted, he tips some down his front but he definitely has the right idea). I figured that being able to use different ones would encourage him to use his mouth and hands to 'work' in different ways. That way it doesn't matter if 'the cup' is in the dishwasher either. I just looked for ones that were on sale over a few trips to the chemist/ supermarket.
