My twins are 6 months and have started using a doidy cup for their lunchtime feed, with 2 of them it takes ages as I have to help them and invariably ends up all over them (and me). They also have a TT easyflow cup for water. I have tried these for milk but they dont seem to get any out. What type of first beaker/cup have you found successful for this age? I want them to have all their daytime milk from a cup/beaker as soon as possible.

Is your TT one a free flow cup? They do one called the 'first cup' that's free flow. (If you tip the cup upside down, does the milk drip out)? Maybe you could try that instead?

Mine gets on best with a cup with a straw (that comes through the lid, not open). It makes least mess too.

No, the T is non spill I think (although sometimes it does) I tried it today and you have to bite quite hard to get anything out. The babies have thickened formula too so will have a go at the free flow cup.

Will have a look at the cup with straw too.
Thanks for your help.
