SILICONE TRAINING CUP

Made with premium silicone, our training cups for babies offer a toddler-proof alternative to traditional plastic and fragile dishware for tots. We chose 100% food-grade silicone because its unbreakable, soft, and flexible to protect the baby’s gums and developing teeth Cups made of glass, hard plastics, or ceramic could shatter if dropped or if the baby can’t control the cup, it’s a risk that they hit their mouth or teeth.

HOW DO YOU TRANSITION FROM BOTTLE TO A TRAINING CUP?

Transitioning from the breast, bottle, or sippy cup to a training cup is an important developmental milestone. How you should transition from a bottle to a training sippy cup?

  • Start early
  • Start with an empty cup
  • Start with a silicone spout
  • Remove the valve
  • Offer something besides water

Drinking from a training cup also helps prevent tooth decay that can extended bottle use can promote. Drinking from a cup fosters fine motor skills and coordination. But every child is different and will hit milestones when they’re ready. Aim to introduce an open-cup training cup between 6 and 12 months.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD A CHILD BE DRINKING FROM A TRAINING CUP?

  • Around 6 months: Most children can take small sips from an open cup that’s held by a parent or caregiver.
  • Around 12 months: Most children can start to grab the handles and use the open cup correctly.
