    I love these cups for weaning. Though they are certainly not spill resistant just be patient whilst your little one is learning. At 6 months water kept going everywhere (sometimes my fault for leaving on the high chair) but now my lo is nearly 8 months she holds the cup and often on her own now with extremely little spilling. We only use it for her sit down meals with bib and high chair. And use non spill ones for any other times. But she loves her cup and gets so excited and happy when I offer her water in it at meal times.

    I bought this for my daughter when she started weaning as I had heard good things about it. As it isn't a non-spill cul water inevitably got spilt but that isn't my issue with it. The claim is the slant means the child can see the contents with out having to tilt their head over it but they can in a clear plastic beaker, also the slant mean you have to drink from one side not the other and my daughter kept drinking from the 'wrong' side.

    My 6 month old couldn't work out how to use the sippy cup with a spout given to us by the health visitor and preferred an open cup. I read about the doidy cup and thought it was worth a try, especially at £3! As he is still very little I hold the cup at the base and the sloped design allows me to tip it with just a shallow amount of water at his mouth, with a normal sippy cup there was too much that poured out when I tipped. Obviously if left to his own devices baby will tip the whole cup out so I will continue to hold it until he's a bit older, but it does make less mess than a lidless sippy cup.

    My little girl has been using hers since she was 4 months old. We put tiny amounts of her milk in it or water for her to drink. I help her with holding it so she don’t spill it but she does try to do it herself

    At first I thought this cup was odd, but after a few tries I now see how it is teaching my 15month old to drink from an open cup by herself.
    The slant style means you can't add as much drink as with a normal beaker, but that's a good thing as there's less to spill if it gets dropped.
    Baby can pick it up with the two handles and doesn't need to tip it far to get the fluid so it minimises spills.

    My son took to this cup quite quickly. It is so helpful with trying to teach and help children to go from and beaker/bottle to a cup. Not going to lie he did get quite wet a few times but got the hang of it quickly.

    Inline this cup, my son is still learning how to use it at 14 months of age but he is getting better every time he's offered his cup and can get a drink out of it. I love how it comes in a range of colours. The only downside for me was availability

    This was one of the cups that helped my daughter learn how transition from breast feeding. She was able to hold it easily and the slanted design helped her get more in her mouth than on the floor. The small size handles are good for small babies hands. A good starter cup. She is now able to drink out of normal glasses and I think this cup helped that.

    We were recommended this when my Son was unwell and not wanting to drink. It worked really well for us. He liked holding the handles and got the hang of it quickly. I note it says it costs £6 - we got ours on 1/2 price offer from a super market which cost £1.25 - so the cost was very low. Maybe that was just fortunate. There were lots of lovely bright colour choices. Obviously as its an open topped cup it is messy as they can spill it down themselves as well as over the table. But then having a baby is never clean work!

    My little boy refused to drink from a beaker of any kind and so we were stuck with open cups.- this was the perfect solution to see what he as drinking and make sure that we had as little mess as possible!

    My son loves this cup. I bought it after our health worked suggested it to encourage my son to drink more water. Once the novelty of playing with the water wore off he learnt very quickly how to use it. To begin with water goes everywhere and a little frightful for them, but they soon learn!

    My little boy loves this cup and it only took him a week or so to get use to it. I use minimal.water to start usually about 30mls to limit mess. Easy clean. I do use a different beakers when in the car or buggy Birth to ensure they have a constant supply if water.

    I purchased a doidy cup for my youngest when she was around one, the idea being that because it is a slanted design it doesn't require as much tipping. I'll be honest it's a bit of a novelty, your child will get the hang of using a normal cup in time, this may slightly speed up the process but I probably wouldn't recommend.

Description

The Doidy Cup is designed and made in the U.K., to teach your little one to drink from a rim. The one-of-a-kind slant of the cup enables children to drink easily as they can see the contents without thrusting their heads forward and downwards. Children also learn to put the cups down properly. Babies as young as 6months find the two handled cup simple to hold and use but with their Parents help, the cup can be used from birth.

Dishwasher (top shelf) and microwave safe. (Warning - microwaving liquids can result in 'hot spots' and is not advised for children's drinks.)

Weaning : The Doidy cup is a perfect aid to weaning as the natural mouth action used is the same as in breast feeding. Health professionals are advising use of the Doidy Cup to prevent long term health problems caused by delayed weaning and prolonged use of feeding bottles and spouted cups. Numerous Health Authorities are promoting the use of the Doidy Cup in their 'SURE START' and 'BOTTLE TO CUP' campaigns.
