Safe and easy to clean, these open cups are the perfect cups for weaning and beyond. These give babies more control, better fine motor skills and improved chances for good oral health. These cups allow your baby to sip rather than suck. These cups are recommended by dentists, orthodontists and health visitors.
Use of spouted cups (including no-spill valve cups and sippy cups) may contribute to poor dental and facial development. Babycup is an open cup and is not detrimental to your baby’s dental development or facial development. Some dentists advise that spouted cups (such as no-spill valve cups and sippy cups) can contribute to childhood tooth decay. The American Dental Association advises that children should be drinking from an open cup by their first birthday.
BABYCUP conforms to EN14350 and European Food Contact Materials legislation EU 10/2011.
Babycups was created by Sara Keel, a mum of three, who looked for the perfect cup for her first baby to drink from. When she couldn’t find one, she would pull the valves out of no-spill beakers and remove the lids from sippy cups, but she realized that her baby girl was still drinking out of a cup the equivalent size of an adult drinking from a bucket!
When her second baby came long, she was still frustrated by the cups on the market, so she delved deeper into the subject and found an alarming body of growing concern amongst health professionals, backing up my fear that spouts and no-spill valves are not just without any health benefits, but are actually potentially damaging for a baby or child’s developing teeth, jaws and palate.
Once baby number three came along, she began developing the idea of a suitable open drinking cup – a little cup for little people – and so Babycup was born
Why We Love It
When we first saw these, we immediately fell in love with them. The idea is just so simple, but so extraordinary at the same time! Little cups for little people – it just makes sense.
Our little bubba likes to do everything herself (which can produce many grrr moments for us!) and so these are a perfect way to get her to drink. She is attracted to their colourfulness, and the cups have really helped her develop her hand-to-eye coordination. It has been fantastic to see her learning how to hold the cups and realise that she has to put them to her lips to drink, and control the flow of drinking. It is not surprising that these have been thought up by a mum, and we absolutely love them.
