Babycup is the perfect size for little ones. Adventures of a Yorkshire Mum agrees and says, "If you want to head straight to using open cups, the Babycup is a perfect size one for your baby. These amazing little cups are intended for use from weaning.....The Babycup is just the right size for small hands and means that if spilt, not much is to be cleaned up. Your baby can get used to the correct motion of drinking for themselves. Plus, being able to sip from a mini open cup is terrific for motor skill development too."
Hi Baby blog names Babycup as one of their favourite weaning products for baby Luisa, "I’m keen to have her master the Babycup so that we don’t have any problems with her teeth in the future that can be caused by other styles of cup – particularly those with a valve."
Love On A Plate loves the easy clean, no nooks and crannies nature of Babycup, "no tricky places germs could harbour," and also proved that encouraging your super sipper is totally worthwhile, "I did begin to think that she would never pick the cup up herself and certainly wouldn't be able to successfully bring it to her mouth - but then one day I just let her have a go and she did it. I was so proud!"
French lifestyle blog L'Avis de Maman praises Babycup for being a cup that's the right size for little ones and the best cup for babies to learn to drink from, "..elles permettent a bébé de boire seul plus facilement qu’avec d’autres coupelles..."

They are designed for small hands and the edge is thinner than other cups so as to be adapted to their mouth…" please excuse any errors in translation from the French!!!)
After trying to get my 7 month old son to drink water out of various sippy cups I spotted these online and decided to give them a try. They come in four lovely colours and are the perfect size for little hands. I put a small amount of water in them and my son is able to drink from them easily, whilst looking very proud of himself. I would definitely recommend these." Babycup review on JoJo Maman Bebe
Juno Magazine calls Babycup gorgeous little beakers, perfect for little hands. "Gill Rapley, [co-]author of Baby Led Weaning, supports these cups as they help encourage independence and co-ordination. They are also good for dental health as baby learns to sip rather than suck a drink through their teeth." A Juno tester commented, “Great size for my little one to handle.”
Toothfairyblog is written by a Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry who knows what's what when it comes to the best for children's teeth. So it was lovely to read this glowing review for Babycup and see photos of a 4 1/2 month old and a 2 1/2 year old both loving their Babycups. Toothfairyblog says, "Babycup – promoting dental health from an early age. I am seriously impressed with this product.......every detail has been thought through. Dishwasher and steriliser safe? Check. Easy to clean, practical to store? Check. Non- toxic? Check. Secondly, the size and shape is spot-on. It’s just right for little hands to pick up and the smaller circumference reduces the chances of spills. Babycup Director Sara Keel puts it beautifully when she gives the analogy that a baby drinking from an adult cup, is like an adult attempting to drink from a bucket….."
