These are a GAME CHANGER when it comes to introducing the ability to drink something other than milk to a baby. I wish I had discovered these when George was smaller but by the time I had been introduced to them he was already confidently drinking from a normal open cup.
When your little one begins weaning, one of the first things you will start to introduce is a cup or bottle for water. I mean, let's face it, they make enough of a mess when they are learning to eat as it is. I guess you could have two attitudes towards this; the 'they have already made a mess so let them carry on' attitude, or the 'let's avoid making anymore mess than is necessary' kind of attitude. I am definitely all for the latter. So off I went to find a drinking solution where spillage wasn't a problem. I browsed websites online for ages, looking at bottle after bottle, trying to take in all the knowledge I had about how their teeth can be affected for example, and use this to pick a bottle that would be right for us. There are non-spill cups, 360 cups, sippy cups with spouts, bottles with straws...the list is endless. And then I found Ez-sip.
'The easy drinking, smarter thinking lid. No spouts, no straws, less mess.'
When it came to weaning Rosalie and introducing the bottle, it seemed a shame to waste the sippy cups we had bought. There is no doubt they have a place when small children want a handle to hold onto. However, we just exchange the lid of the sippy cup for an Ez-sip. It really is that easy! They are simple to fit and are suitable for virtually any cup (I am yet to find one it doesn't fit on!) Rosalie is still practising with hers, but the way it is designed means any spill is minimal and she is learning to control the cup herself. She is learning the skill of drinking from a normal cup straight away which George didn't perfect until much later.
Having been through weaning with 2 children, and experiencing both sippy cups and Ez-sip, I would always vote for Ez-sip. They are exactly what they say they are; Easy! If you haven't tried them yet then they are an absolute must for anyone with a baby or toddler. You can find them by clicking on the logo below.
Have you used Ez-sip lids? Tell me what you think about them in the comments!
