Drinking cup

(8 Posts)

Hi
My dd is determined to drink from an open cup but finds it hard to manage one without two handles. We do have a lot of spills as her muscle control can be a little bit dodgy especially in the mornings! Anyone got a cup they can recommend??

Thanks

Doidy cup

We were given one by an ot, still have it, nobody uses it now (dd2 is now tube-fed completely sad)

I got a cup from mothercare recently. See [http://www.mothercare.com/SoftCare-cup-handles-Stage-Pink/dp/B0012RTTZM/sr=1-35/qid=1253224443/ref= sr135/275-7629325-7313646?%5Fencoding=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44560031&mcb=core here] There are 3 stages, see on the left of the picture there is a flat lid with slots, so some protection from all out mess. We are using this at the moment. Then you can move on to the ring on the right. HTH

sorry was trying to copy link and did it into wrong place. we used something similar. it was tommee tippee i seem to remember and had a lid you could put on, and a hole for straw, we used it without the straw and it stopped the mess.
but in the end(dd has cp) we got athickener for her drink.
