I was excited to receive this item for my daughter, because it seemed it would be a great transition from bottle to a more traditional sippy cup. I also liked the detachable handles and lid, as these would both be great for on-the-go use.

However, we had a somewhat frightening experience the first time we used the product, and have since returned it. After my daughter had been drinking from the cup for a little while, she smiled at me and I noticed a large red chunk of something on her lips, and another in her mouth. I immediately wiped off/fished out the stuff, and discovered that it was pieces of the soft rubbery coating from the lid! Apparently she had been chewing on the lid and the coating came right off, in little chunky flakes. I'm sure it's unlikely that a single piece would come off large enough to be a true choking hazard, but it's possible. And choking hazard or not, I certainly don't want to worry about my daughter ingesting this rubber stuff.

If your child isn't prone to chewing on things, maybe this cup is fine; it definitely has some great reviews from other parents. But for my teething daughter, it's not worth the risk.

I'll try to upload some photos so show the damage. By the way, Amazon was great in accepting our return (they always are).

What I love about this sippy cup is that the spout is short and soft, which makes it very easy and comfortable for my daughter to use. Most other sippy cups have hard plastic spouts that are too big for most smaller babies to use. I love that this sippy cup does not leak, AT ALL. This sippy cup is also very easy to wash as well. The handles do come off, which is a good thing, because they were more of a distraction for my daughter, since she's been holding her own bottle from the time that she was 3 months old. I will say that it's not that easy to suck out of this sippy cup though, your baby has to suck on the spout hard to get any drink but that's not a bad thing. It took a day and a half for my daughter (6months at the time) to really get the hang of drinking out of this cup, but when she did, there was no turning back. At 8 months, she uses this cup daily and at this point, she only gets a bottle at the beginning and end of the day. The rest of her day, she uses this sippy cup.

My only complaint is that the replacement spouts are a bit difficult to find and tend to cost almost as much as the sippy cup itself. Others have complained about the spout tearing easily, but I haven't had this issue.

As a former nanny, I've used other types of sippy cups and this one doesn't compare. I truly believe that this NUK sippy cup is the easiest to transition your baby off the bottle, especially for those who want an early start. I really love this sippy cup and I HIGHLY recommend the NUK Silicone Spout Learner Cup as a starter one above all others. It's a great purchase and one that you won't regret!

*The Hello Kitty design is even cuter in person!

Our little one is breastfeed, so finding a bottle or sippy cup was difficult. Our little one really liked this sippy cup. Its small, 5 oz, and it's nice that the handles come up from the bottom. LO didn't care for the NUK bottle but this sippy cup has been a dream. I really like the print, something they don't sell in stores here.
The only down fall is if you need extra Spouts, as our LO has bitten through the silicone, the Spouts cost as much as a new cup. I've looked in store for extra's and on NUK's website, but the only place that sells them is here on Amazon.

***Pros: If you don't have a dishwasher, this is EASY TO HANDWASH without the itty bitty parts that require a toothbrush to scrub. My baby loves this sippy and it was an easy transition to get her to use it. I love the travel piece you can insert so you can toss the cup in the diaper bag with assurance of no leaks. The plastic quality is great and grippy. The design is 90% awesome with very cute colors and patterns. Some commenters have said the milk flow is not enough, but I don't see a problem with the flow from the slits. The instructions say to make sure they open up before having child use it. I tried drinking to see if it works and it's great. My baby slurps the 5oz bottle up in less than 30min.
***Cons: Be aware that you might get a defective nipple piece. My first one had a ventilation hole that was not efficient enough. As my 10 month old baby drinks, the suction builds pressure in the mouthpiece. The vent hole doesn't seem to be opening even though I've tried to "stretch" it out with pointy objects. So what happens when too much pressure builds up? While she drinks, the mouthpiece caves in where my baby's chin is, causing the milk to spill out onto her chin and shirt. It's not like the whole cup dumps out on her so it's not disastrous, but it's important to know before buying. I tried to fix the problem by cutting the vent hole slightly bigger. That might work while the cup is half full, but I tried it with the cup full and I was astonished when milk shot in my baby's eye haha. Luckily I bought 2 of these bottles so now when I see the pressure cave in the mouthpiece I just push on the vent hole to release air, or just keep a towel nearby to mop my baby's face. Perhaps it was a defective cup. To me, it's still worth buying this cup. I'm tired of cups with cheap plastic that gets rough from the baby biting on the mouthpiece or the cups with tiny pieces that never get clean. One other issue: DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE STILL BREASTFEEDING. This bottle trains your child to bite down in order to get the tiny slits to open up. Need I say more on that matter?

I ended up buying a replacement nipple and I now have a couple of well functioning bottles. I do recommend these. They are great!

After trying to feed my daughter with this sippy cup and being very unsuccessful, I tried drinking water out of it myself and nothing came out! I must have gotten a faulty one?

We started trying to transition my daughter from bottle to sippy cup when she was around 9 months old. We went through several different types of sippy cups, with or without handles, with or without straws, and with harder or softer spouts. Nothing worked, until a friend recommended these Nuk learner cups. Our daughter got the hang of drinking from these cups very quickly, and now she insists on drinking from them by herself.

My daughter loves this cup. It is easy to take apart to clean and put back together. It has easy to read measurements in the side. The handle comes off easily.
