Didn't think this would work...I was wrong!
on 2 August 2012
Purchased this solely on basis of positive reviews and the fact that its so cheap so thought not much to lose if it doesn't work. In looking at it when it arrived I was very sceptical that my five month old daughter would be able to drink from it. I have tried her with the vital cup in both free flow and valved mode and she can't get the hang of sucking with the valve in and chokes when its in free flow mode. She immediately went for the handles on this (although would agree with other reviews that say that handles could be improved) and guided it towards her mouth, she was able to sip at her own pace and took to it easily. I like the idea of it because I think it will help her adjust to using a 'proper' cup in the long term. I think things will get messy with this as she gets older but children are messy so don't see it being too much of a problem
