This thing is badass ya'll. Seriously! We have had trouble with previous ones for different reasons. A hard spout does not provide for a good transition, whether baby be used to bottle or boobie, a all of the sudden hard thing is not easy to learn from. Also when the baby is drinking formula (or boobie) from a hard spout (they have "no leak" valves) they tend to need more breaks and in our case that means more times to open your moth and spill out ALL of the milk you just got in there. This one does not have a valve as it is a soft nipple spout. We also had a major issue with leaking from all of the cups we tried. I wanted to get away from the bottle "nipple" shape in hopes for an easier transition and this was the way to go! The handles are removable so J can still have his night time feeding where he is in
charge heaven but in the morning, I can get baby girl, hand her the cup and set her down...what a gift at 6am! I paid $13.99 for this cup and I just saw it on their website for $8.49...wah wah wah. Check it out here. At the end of my sippy cup search I can tell you that I WILL be buying at least another 1 of these if not 2, ya know for dish-washing sake :) What cups do you all like?
