I’m sorry Doidy Cup, this is not the most pleasant of reviews. As you can tell I haven’t much love for you. I did for about a week, and then it all backfired. Water and milk fired, fired at my walls, doors and floors.
The Doidy Cup is designed to teach your child to drink from the rim of a cup. The unique slant of the cup enables children to drink easily as they can see the contents without thrusting their heads forward and downwards. They also learn to put the cups down properly. It’s suitable for children as young as three months. They are top rack dishwasher safe, made in the UK, and comes in lots of eye pleasing colours. It’s about five euros too.
So this cup is supposed to be great for teaching little ones how to use an open cup and comes highly recommended to those who are practising baby led weaning. For us, it’s no different from any other open cup… in that it spills everywhere. I’ve tried numerous times with the little one. She just swings it about by it’s little handles and drowns herself. It’s been three months and there has been no development, in that time I’d say she’s drunk all of 50mls for it. The floors, seat and her clothes get the rest.
The boy, well he thinks it a launch missile, he’ll take a sip, he’ll realise he has loose fluid at his disposal and throws it across the room with an evil Chucky laugh. It has not helped us with his transition either. It’s just made more work for me. I’ll be sticking to my Nuby Flip-It Beakers for now.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend it from my experience, it has not helped us in the transition from bottle or beaker to the cup. Have you had a different experience with the Doidy Cup? I’d love to know your thoughts…
