Great starter sippy cup for younger babies!
on October 15, 2012
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!
