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.
