    Does your LO find it easy to drink out of? :shrug:


    I'll explain... AJ uses a TT first cup for water, manages fine.
    He uses a nuby cup now for milk - this is my problem, we've been using this cup for months now, but he still drinks from it like its a bottle and the teat collapses.
    I have tried this but you need to bite down on it, but he just sucks, so its no good! :wacko:

    Thanks in advance :flower:

    we gave up with it! I couldnt get anything out of it, not sure if he could, but he got frustrated. Just use the bog standard one (1st picture) now, have to make sure he doesnt swing it around his head sprinkling drinkies all round the kitchen tho.

    I've tried one of them with my LO (who's almost 6 months). There is a bit inside which is removable which means you can have it as no-spill or free-flow. My LO is BF and did not get on with it at all - he didn't understand he had to suck when it was no-spill, and when it was free-flow I think it came out too fast for him!

    We gave up with sippy cups and have given him a doidy cup which he loves to drink from. A bit messy at first, but now he's got the hang of it - reckon he thinks he's a big boy as he's drinking how mummy and daddy drink!

    We use that exact one and Seren uses it fine... Took her a while to actually learn to suck on it because she used to use the free flow one but now that she's got the hang of it it's no problem at all.

    I picked up 2 today. 2 for £5 in Boots!

    I had a try :blush: and it looks like he'll be able to drink out of it without any problems.

    Thanks everyone :flower:

    we use the explora and alys has taken to it really well, she wouldnt suck any other one to get anything out but the teat on this one is rounded so its easier and apparantly its for "easier transition" which i think is about right lol

    Had the nuby ones to start of with but after a while he managed to chew holes in it.. he then started on the TT explora ones
    He now drinks from the TT easyflow ones and the ones with the start thingy

    Jess uses these cups too, she couldn't get on with the free flow ones she just used to soak herself with them. I must have tried every blooming cup on the market tho lol. Good luck with it xXx
