Slow flowing sippy cup


Does any one know of a sippy cup that the water comes out of quite slowly? Molly often chokes when it comes out of a medium flow bottle teat so Im after a sippy cup that hopefully wont be much faster (if such a thing exists?) until she gets used to it. I thought Id ask on here as I dont want to spend a fortune in a collection of sippy cups like I did bottles!

I'm not sure if they make them tbh... The only thing I can think of is the ones which have the non spill valves - Baby has to suck on the spout to get the water out rather than it actually freeflowing... x

I use a nuby cup. You can get them for 4months plus as well as 6 months plus. I have the 6 month plus one that is soft and they have to suck on it probably harder than a bottle. Perhaps the 4 month one would come out slower than the 6 month

I've always found that it's trial and error to get one they like. I used these Avent ones:

I have the tommee tippee explora one aswell, but I found it too slow flow and have gone back to the free flow one, Seren's too lazy to suck too hard for her water!

just a 1.50 bog standard tommee tippee worked for us- got it free from the health visitors. But not before i spent 4 quid on the explora. I got a pic of it here:
