There are many purchases that we have made that were on Must Have Lists or came highly recommended or we otherwise thought were needs and often they were total duds for at least one, if not both of our boys. However, the transition to cups is a tricky process and not just because the kids do not wan t to give up the bottle, but the actual cup choice – functionality, leak-proof – is the hardest part. When choosing the cup, we need to consider the water or milk flow process, our sons have struggled with cups that the suction/leak-proofing is too hard to get anything out, even with an adult’s strength but then, if the flow is too easy, the milk flows out of the cup with a river stream down his chin, shirt and into his lap.
The Dr. Brown's Soft-Spout Transition Cup is the BEST cup. Our sons are able to drink water and milk . They do not spill down their entire body and if the cup is laid down on the ground, it does not spill out either. I know this sounds like a simple review and simple description but EVERY other cup we have tried either pours and spills or is impossible to get anything out of. That is why, it is certainly on our MUST HAVE list.
