In our never ending quest to find a good solid cup for Logan, Born Free offered their drinking cup for him to test. We were delighted and gladly agreed to give it a go and see how Logan would find it.
We were sent a lovely yellow drinking cup which can be used from 9 months+ and comes in a few different colours including; yellow, blue, pink and green. They have a harder spout designed for free flow of liquid and removable handles incase your toddler prefers to hold the bottle instead. The cup has an inner valve and air vent which reduces vacuum build up and the need for hard sucking so a lot easier for your toddler to quench their thirst. You'll also be glad to know that these cups are BPA free and dishwasher safe (in top rack only). Just incase that wasn't enough the cups have a handy lid to stop them from spilling liquids in your childs changing bag, brilliant.
Logan really likes this cup. He will happily drink his water or cows milk from it and loves to hold the handles. He's teething at the moment and the harder spout seems to ease his teething pains and his teeth have not left any lasting damage on the spout which is a massive bonus as Logan loves to chew everything and normally destroys his stuff with the chewing. So the drinking cup has most defintely passed the chomp test!
There are many parts to these drinking cups but I found it very easy to take apart and clean by hand so no problems there and also since it is disherwasher safe if you can't be bothered to clean it by hand them by all means pop it in the top rack of your disherwasher and wait for it to be cleaned for you. One of the best features of these cups has to be that it has a volume indicator on the back of the cup showing FL.oz and ml so if you are swapping from a bottle to a cup you can still use these for their milk feeds. These cups can hold up to 9oz or 250ml.
If you would like to buy your child their very own Born Free drinking cup then you can purchase one for RRP £6.99 from Born Free's own online shop.
Overall we love this drinking cup and it is perfect for Logan who loves to hold his cups by the handles. One thing you might not have known is that Born Free's bottles can be simply turned into cups just by changing the teat to a spout! How amazing is that and it gets a big thumbs up from us saving parents money. The drinking cups are a little more on the pricey side but well worth the pennies.
