Now that Logan is 15 months old we have been trying to get him to drink from a more grown up cup so when BABYBJÖRN asked us if we would like to test and review their cup we were delighted. Here is what we thought.
We were sent a lovely green cup from BABYBJÖRN which grabbed Logan's attention straight away. I was surprised by how small the cup is but that's a good thing as it is perfect for Logan's little hands to grip. The bass of the cup is weighted slightly which helps to keep the cup from tipping over when on the highchair. The cup has nice round edges so as not to damage little gums and teeth which is great and it also has measurements up the side of the cup and it can hold 100ml of liquid.
This cup is BPA free and is suitable for 8 months + so introducing your baby to the cup early enough will get them used to it quicker. I like it that it resembles a normal ish cup shape so that your child can associate you drinking from a cup and watching how you do it to them drinking from their little cup. I think it aids the learning process if your child can see and learn from their parents.
Logan loved this little cup and has chewed on it none stop. He does take sips off water from it quite happily but then proceed to tip the cup over his head and the water. I think we need to work on showing him how we drink from a cup and hope that he follows suit. It fits perfectly in his hands and the non-slip grip around the cup helps him to hold on when his hands are covered in food. The bigger base helps him to put the cup down on his highchair table without it tipping over which I appreciate.
I love the fact that you can put this cup in the microwave and the dishwasher. It makes things so much easier and quicker. This cup is made from durable and recyclable plastics which is a surprise as not many brands use plastics which can be recycled.
The cup has been developed with paediatricians, industrial engineers, children and parents so a lot of research and testing has gone into it. The BABYBJÖRN cup can also be used as a feeding container and is designed to fit perfectly with the BABYBJÖRN Spoon.
The cup is available in red or green and co-ordinates with the rest of the kitchen range products. This cup retails for £8.99 and can be purchased from kiddicare.com
Overall a great little cup and with more practice I'm sure Logan can master it. There has been so much thought put into it and we would definitely recommend to friends and family. A little bit pricey but it will last a good bashing and can be passed on to the next child.
Logan's rating - 9/10
Mummies rating - 8.5/10
