Avent Grown Up Cup


Blake drinks a lot of water now,he use to be really fussy and not like drinking it. 
He has only tried juice once and he wasn't too keen which can only be a good thing.
I want Blake to grow up loving water as I am pretty rubbish at drinking it myself. 
I can go a whole day without drinking anything and then remember just before bed. 

Blake has a wide range of cups from straw ones to general sippy cups from a wide range of brands. But the Avent Grown Up Cup is a little different. 

The revolutionary Philip's Avent cup helps your toddler to transition to grown up drinking. 
The unique spill-proof valve is lip activated and allows drinking from around the rim.  


I was a little unsure if Blake would drink from it as he can usually be fussy. 
However I needn't have worried as he was able to drink from it with ease.

We like that it has handles so that Blake can hold it easily (although he likes to fling it across the room). This means that he can drink independently without our help. 
We also like that it encourages Blake to drink from around the rim like an adult cup. 
The lip activated valve is great as it means no mess and gives Blake the chance to 
master free-flow drinking. 
We also like that the cup also comes with a protective hygiene lid for keeping the cup clean. 

The bottle is easy to clean we just pop it into the dishwasher and give it a little rinse afterwards and its good to go. 


Have you tired the Avent Grown Up Cup? 
If not what cup do use with your little one?

  1. No, I haven't. My daughter is five now so uses a regular glad. However, I wish I had known about this when she was younger. It would've made life so much easier ;) Dean of Little Steps

  8. This sounds like a good idea! My daughter is still on the boob but I will look into it once she starts using cups - thanks for sharing

  9. This looks like a good option for a grown up cup. There has been a lot of bad press about sippy cups recently so this would be a good alternative

  18. Toby had a Munchkin version of this and it was brilliant. He mostly drinks from a doidy cup now (he's 20 months old) but I'll be using similar ones to this when the time comes with baby girl xx

  19. It sounds like a good option. We skipped this stage and went straight from bottle to a cup, had a couple of accidents along the way! ;)

  20. Ooh this sounds exciting. With our Pickle not yet born we're not quite at sippy cup stage yet but will definitely be looking into things like this in the future - you're right, I'd love our little one to grow up drinking more water than I do myself. I think I should start trying to lead by example!

  23. Oscar has always refused kiddy cups. He's used a proper glass since being able to sit up by himself. It's such a shame as there are some amazing kids ones on the market :(
