Pros: Silicone spout, easy grip
Cons: Really difficult to get liquid out, spout collapses
I am currently in the process of completely weaning my daughter from a bottle & although she has been using a hard spout sippy cup for awhile & has no problem with using one, she still likes her milk in her "ba ba" & I think she associates milk with the silicone nipple from the bottle. So when I came across this sippy cup, I was overjoyed! A sippy that has a spout that feels like a nipple from a bottle!!! I bought it & paid about 1.75 from Target!
I thought the shape was cool too because it is easy to grip and not so slippery as her other sippy cups. I was truly soo excited to get it home & try it out. I even let her hold it in the store to get used to it & she seemed really interested in it too!
Got home followed cleaning instructions for first use & then made my first attempt...put milk in it & even told her, it's a baba sippy cup...she began drinking from it & she pulled it away from her mouth and looked at me confused...I told her try again...she did & pulled it out of her mouth & said, "OH!" which is what she says when something is wrong...so I looked at the spout & saw that the silicone spout collapsed inward & there was milk stuck in the spout...I pulled it back out & put it to my mouth to try to drink from it & it was nearly impossible to get anything to come out!! I thought maybe I screwed the top too tight, unscrewed it, replaced it & tried again..same thing....then I thought well maybe milk is too thick for the spout, tried putting water in it to see if that made a difference...same thing. I was very dissapointed & now it is a toy cup my daughter plays with.
I am going to contact Nuby & complain & see if maybe it was a defective cup I happened to buy, but I feel really jipped because although it was only 1.75, I was so dissapointed as was my daughter.
If Nuby will send me a replacement & it is better, I will update this review, but as it stands, I do not recommend this because although it has a lot of great features...easy grip, silicone spout, the cup did not serve the purpose it should.
