Product Description

Colour: Red

Product Description

The Doidy Cup from Bickiepegs is designed to teach your child to drink from the rim of a cup rather than a spout or teated bottle. The special slanted design makes it easy for little ones to sip rather than pour, as they can see what they're drinking without tilting their head too much. This encourages a natural drinking action as well as helping them to learn to put down the cup properly. The Doidy cup is an ideal aid to weaning as the natural mouth action used is the same as in breast feeding. In addition, dental professionals suggest that training children to drink from a cup as soon as possible can cut down on the long-term dental problems associated with prolonged use of bottles.

Babies as young as 6 months will find the two-handled Doidy cup easy to hold and use, but with Mum's help the cup can be used from birth. Dishwasher (top shelf) and microwave safe (although microwaving liquids can result in 'hot spots' and microwaving is therefore not advised for children's drinks).

    A friend bought my baby one of these cups for his first birthday and gave me all the gumph that comes with it - the articles and so on recommending it. Whilst I think the design is OK and I use it occasionally there are several things that concern me about the hype surrounding its use. In terms of functionality, it certainly makes drinking from an open cup slightly easier than a standard beaker with handles, although I do think the handles are not ergonomic enough and the design could be improved here.

    Supposedly, health visitors recommend the use of this cup from 3 months onwards, even if a baby is breastfed. The reasons cited for the use of this cup extend from preventing bottle/spouty cup caries (tooth decay), to preventing speech impediments. The makers of this cup and health visitors would have us believe that feeding your child from a bottle or spouty cup after 6 months of age will lead to anything from tooth decay, malnutrition and speech impairment! However, if you read the research carefully, there is actually very little evidence to support these claims. I am a dentist and have a vested interest in my patients' oral health and have studied the articles carefully.

    The evidence that bottle feeding and spouty cups can cause tooth decay is certainly clear - feeding a baby or child any sugary drinks such as squash or fruit juice through a bottle or spouty cup of any kind can and will cause tooth decay, sometimes quite severe necessitating removal of the baby teeth under general anaesthetic in severe cases. Formula feeds given to a baby in a bottle, whilst allowing the baby to suck for prolonged periods, can also, to some extent, cause tooth decay, although to a lesser extent as milk/formula are less 'cariogenic' than sugary drinks. (Cariogenic = causes tooth decay.

    Colour Name: Blue
    I have a 5 year old son with mild learning difficulties. One of the problems that he has is with his fine motor skills, or co-ordination. Things like eating and drinking are huge obstacles for him, as when he tries to drink from a regular cup, he always over compensates and gets the juice all over himself. The occupational therapist suggested buying specialist products to help him manage better, and my research led me to the Doidy Cup, which is a special cup designed for babies and infants to help them to learn to drink from a cup with a rim.

    You can see from the picture above that the cup is just like a regular plastic cup that has been slanted to the side. The idea of the slanting cup is so that the child/baby does not have to lean over the cup to see the liquid inside, and that it does not requite much tipping to reach the liquid. The cup also has sturdy handles on either side that the child can hold on to.

    The official website says that this cup can be used from birth with the mother holding the cup, and this can be better than a bottle for breastfed babies to drink expressed milk from, as the mouth action that they use to drink from the cup is more similar to breastfeeding than sucking on a bottle. A six month old baby can hold the cup themselves, with supervision. Using the cup minimises the dental problems associated with bottles and spouted cups.

    So essentialy this is a baby cup, and I wish I had known about it when my son was younger and got him started sooner. I bought the cup from Amazon, for just over £3. The cups come in a variety of colours. I bought turquoise, as I though it would be appealing for him. Usually, he drinks from a spouted cup, so when he got home from school and saw this, he looked puzzled.

    When I was returning to work I needed a way my baby would drink my milk in my absence. After spending a huge amount on bottles (she would not take them) this cup was recommended. We brought two and my baby gets on really well with them, I would highly recommend this cup to anyone else in the same situation.

    Really like this cup. My son is practically able to drink by himself - he is 7 months old. Easy to wash, wish I had bought 2!

    I had been struggling to wean my baby from breast to bottle for some time when the Health Visitor recommended getting a Doidy cup.
    If I'm honest I really did not think it would work, but I was completely wrong. It's like magic!
    I'm not entirely sure how it works but it really does. It's all a bit messy to start with (so make sure you have a thick bib and lots of muslins handy) but it doesn't take long for baby to get the hang of it.
    If you've struggled with the transition from breast to bottle definitely give this a go - I found it to be a lifesaver and the only thing that has worked!

    My son just spills it all over the place, struggle to see how a 3 month old would be able to use this. My baby is 7 months and cannot use it, don't believe all the hype
