Advantages Gives your child a greater sense of independence at meal times
Disadvantages Unfortunately it can still be thrown as far as a normal cup
I baby led weaned my son at six months of age which is currently the guideline in the UK for when to wean your child onto solids. I was also eager to wean him off his bottle and teach him to drink from a cup as early on as possible, so I introduced him to a spouted cup soon after introducing solids as this seemed like a good time to train him in the use of a cup. It is best to wean your child off the bottle as early on as possible, as drinking from a teat can lead to tooth decay and it is believed that it can slow down speech development. ‘Sippy’ cups (spouted beakers) are no better than drinking from a teat, so it is best to try and use an open cup as soon as possible.
After much searching I eventually came across the Steadyco range of toddler feeding equipment on Amazon, their cups have won numerous awards which gave me a great deal of confidence in purchasing one of them for my son. They come in a range of colours to choose from red, pink, yellow, blue, or red, all of which are around £2.00. I opted for the pink cup and I was eager to see what was so good about them, and hoped that my son would like his new cup. Even though my son had had two cups prior to this one, they are designed in such a way that your child can be weaned straight from the bottle onto these.
I was really excited to introduce my son to his new grown-up cup; I decided to fill it with water to let him try out his new cup with his lunch.
