jess will only use the tommee tippee 4mnth plus one - she is 13 months and only been using it for 2 months!

Tommee tippee soft spout and have just started mine onto a cup (the steady) cup today, quite enjoyed taking juice from the cup. He is now 11 months, I tried doidy which was quite good but stuck to tommee until now as it is good for travelling and baby really enjoyed it for juice, not so keen for milk drinks though. Will try new cup with milk tomorrow and see !!

DS uses the Tommee Tippee ones (2 for £4 in Boots atm).

We loved the Doidy Cup, by Bickiepegs. Hads no lid/no pout, so needs supervision to start with. We used one from about 4 or 5 months, and gradulaly as she got older we had to help her less and less. We never got on with spouts, and she never really had a lidded cup as such.

Mine liked the doidy cup but had the idea that he wanted to hold and use himself and kept on blowing bubbles in it, so put it away for a while.

I also have 1 tesco baby one with a sof tspout and advent one and a tesco hard spout one.

No, thats not what I use, I bought mine from Sainsburys, its a little cup with two handles and has a soft top lid on top with a spout that pops up and you can fold down in use.

Not sure what its called, tommee tippee range

poppy101 Wed 17-Aug-05 21:25:30

Its called the first drinking cup that I use, link on sainsburys page.

mumtosomeone Wed 17-Aug-05 22:13:45

I used the asda ones!

Well ds has been drinking from his Tesco own sopt spout one this morning result! now all i have to do is get him to hold it himself, he can do it whilst laying down or leaning back but not when sitting up.

mumtosomeone Thu 18-Aug-05 10:49:00

it takes time!! Well done him!

The best one I've found is a boots own cup.

It has a soft spout and is free flowing and my little one (and the little ones I nannied for before having my own) have all done really well with it. It has no handles though, but it doesn't really matter as its quite narrow they learn to just pick it up without handles.

I think it was £3 so not expensive either. Its suitable from 4 months (I used it for EBM as she wouldn't take a bottle)

Just a cup! no lid or spout or anything just a cup. i'm sure lids were only invented to save carpets, if you only give them water it doesn't matter anyway!

My dd just used a cup, and i had one of those sports bottle type things to carry water when going out.
