Great learning cup
We love this cup. Despite the price (rather expensive for a plastic cup), I bought the doidy cup, because I was curious if it would work. And it does!! Our 8 month old picked the cup up and sipped his yoghurt without any problems. He does not have to bend over backwards anymore to empty it like he does with his sippy cups. He can keep his head straight and drink from the cup. The handles appeared too small when I opened the box, but they are actually the perfect size for his small hands and fingers.
NO SIPPY CUPS PLEASE
We started our 8m old with the Doidy Cup and soon graduated to the Green Eats (like these without handles). The Green Eats are now perfect for him as he didn’t do so well with the handles on the Doidy Cup but I’m sure some kids would benefit from them. He is now 14m old and drinks from the Green Eats Tumbles (check them out here at Amazon) perfectly. We will never use sippy cups.
We started offering this cup around 10 months and now at 18 months my son still loves to use it in addition to other cups. It’s very well designed and it really does help that the baby can see the liquid as he’s drinking. It was key in helping our son to control the fluid as he tilted, he totally looked down and watched it. I would have thought this was a gimmick but a friend recommended it and I’m really glad we tried it.
Helped my son finally learn how to drink from a cup
My son was almost 2 and still didn’t know how to drink from a cup. Every time we gave him a cup he would spill most of it on his chest and then end up choking on the rest of the water. The doidy cup has handles (excellent for control) and a tilted top, so he doesn’t have to tip the cup very much to get the water in his mouth. After about a week playing with the doidy cup (and getting himself wet a few times), he finally figured out how to drink from a cup. Now he can drink from a regular cup, but we still give him the doidy at mealtimes.
6 month old loves this
this is superbMy baby never took a bottle so I was having trouble finding somethingThis cup is my baby’s favorite… he sometimes dumps water on his head but he’s learning!
Interesting idea but not really useful
My breastfed daughter hated anything other than the breast. I didn’t mind but it was very hard to go out with my husband once a month or have any time to myself being that she refused bottles. So we thought maybe we should just skip bottles altogether and bought this along with some sippy cups. My daughter chewed on this but the claim that babies use it seems absurd, my kids have both been ahead developmentally but this cup was not what it claimed to be for my baby. Just get a sippy or use a regular cup.
at nine months, my baby won’t use it yet
Really like the idea of this and I’ll keep trying–I’d rather skip having to clean sippy cups like I’ve had to clean bottles. They’re just as annoying to clean. However, my baby hasn’t caught on yet. However, it’s only been a few weeks. Update–nearly 11 months now–and she she’ll drink from it if I hold the cup. I’m not sure this is worth it. But I’m still hopeful.
My daughter loves her little she starting using this cup around 6 months and now she’s 9 months and can us the cup by herself. I think this is a great first cup when baby is learning how to use cups.
