Pediatricians recommend introducing a sippy cup when baby is around 6 months old, but it can take awhile for little ones to really get the hang of it. As your child figures out how to hold and drink from a cup instead of a bottle, be prepared for that thing to get flung on the floor time and again—both accidentally and very much intentionally. Thankfully, the Nuk Learner sippy cup miraculously doesn’t leak. Ever. (At least in our testing.) It’s a great early trainer cup to ease the transition before baby moves onto a straw or open cup. We’ve seen plenty of babies excited to grab hold of this cup and take a sip, thanks to the curved, grippy handles and soft, protruding spout. Tots can be equally excited to simply gnaw on the spout and handles, but the parts hold up beautifully.
- The silicone spout is soft and gentle on gums, and really is spill-proof
- A vent helps prevent little ones from swallowing air
- Anti-slip handles are easy for babies to grasp, and can be removed as baby gets older
- It’s dishwasher safe
