I have just brought DS a couple of Tomee Tipee drinking cups and there seems to be a plastic spike that fits underneath the drinking spout partially blocking it. Does anyone know if I leave it attached or snap it out?

If it's the ones I have you twist the spout round clockwise half a turn and the lid fits into the recess in the top

is it a bottle to cup trainer?

Leave it on, it's what stops it leaking

Its a bottle to cup trainer, 6 months plus.

... but it doesn't even look like it should be snapped off

the one with a screw on spout and a see through flip cover

I reckon it would take some snapping!

I think my daugher had this cup, I think that the little ones have to bite on the spout to get the fluid out, its an anti leak thing - I think

Water didn't seem to be coming out so I tested it myself and you really have to bite/suck hard to make it come out, this is why I am asking.

My ds seemed to really like it and bit the spout hard with no probs but you're right they seem to take a lot of effort don't they!

u leave the spike attatched hun as it keeps spout in place to stop leaks.

pink u do have to bite the cup but somehow the little ones manage perfectly fine with it...maybe its us and our 'older' My ds loves the tommee tippee cups and can drink a huge cup of milk in a minute through it so obviously they master
