Infant Training Cup
Just when a new mother thinks she has mastered the art of breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, or even both, there comes a time for her to start weaning her child onto a cup. The common age to start weaning is around 6 months. Weaning a child fully onto a cup is a long process, which usually takes up to six months. This can be a wonderful and rewarding experience for both parent and child.
What is a Training Cup?
Features and Benefits
The training cups selling point is that its a spill-proof cup! Parents dont like to pick up messes, especially sticky apple juice or milk. Spill-proof cups have either a screw-on lid or a lid that that snaps shut.
The production technique is all in the spout. The valve that is inserted into the cup is the key to non-spillage. The valve can either be made out of plastic or rubber. The majority of valves are plastic. The spouts are made out of hard plastic with or without a soft-covered molding.
Handles are pretty universal meaning they usually are all of the same shape and size.
Another point of a non-spill training cup is that most of them are travel friendly. Todays parents are always busy, and having travel friendly accessories for their child is perfect. The cup being non-spill will allow a parent to transport it everywhere without the worry of it spilling in the diaper bag. These cups also have wide bases, which makes them more sturdy. The trainer cup is a great asset in the development of a child.
