  • She's 28 months and has been able to use an open top cup for months. I started with a cup in the bath tub that she could play with and it didn't matter if she spilled the water all down her front. I still usually give her a sippy cup since open top cups tend to get knocked over and I don't need one more mess to clean up during the day.

  • My DS & DD where both 2 1/2 we tried it first in the summer outside in the backyard- less messy!

  • I sometimes let my 3 yr old drink from a cup with a sippy, but not often. They are not careful enough to have open top drinks. I do not want to be cleaning or yelling all day long
