My toddler has taken a lot of persuading to ditch his baby bottles. After trying about ten cups with tears and head shakes with zero success I decided to try this one. There are three holes in the spout which means it comes out fast and he gets it all down the front of him, however just because it has Thomas on he is more than prepared to give it a go! There are no tears and no head shakes. So a little leakage I can put up with!
