These Tommee Tippee ones are free flowing

Tommy Tippee ones have a fold away spout so you can carry them around, but are just old-fashioned sippy cups, and quite cheap. I got mine from Tesco, but I'm sure they sell them in most supermarkets / baby sections.

We had a similar problem in that they say free-flowing but they're not actually free-flowing at all!

We took a needle and heated it up really hot (held it with pliers!) and pierced a teeny hole in the top of a Tommee Tippee cup and hey presto, fast flow.

Well, our Tommee Tippee ones leak if you tip them upside down (as all the stains on our mattress/sofa/all over the house testify). We have a sippy cup from the pound shop too with spout but no flip-over.

The Avent Sportster has a valve to make it non-spill. If you take the valve off, it flows quite well.

The vital baby ones in boots can all be free flow. They have a valve (easily removable) and without that they are totally free flow. I just tried it with this one and it just flows when tipped up.

Have tried all my spouted cups, none leak efficiently enough for a decent mouthfull (they seem to manage to seep easily into the carpet thoughhmm)

Does it need to have a spout?

Tommee tippee have one with a lid that has a hole in top to control the flow. ''Easyflow open cup''. So it is like drinking from a normal cup rim but with the amount of liquid controlled. I have one I no longer use, if you want it.

I used to recommend a lot of ''nosey cups'' for cp kids when I was working. Don't know if still available or would be any use for your dd.

How about a bottle with a sports lid (that can be pulled out? These could be squeezed in - not good for control if any swallowing difficulties though.
