Nuby has been around for years. They are a trusted baby and toddler manufacturer where you can get excellent quality products; everything from soothers to bibs, teething products and bath toys, Nuby have it covered to make life easier for parents.
The particular product we are reviewing is their fabulous No-spill cup which is perfect for us since Austyn had his accident. Recently we have spent a fortune on trying different types of sippy cups from the standard ones to ones with straws, ones like bottles but absolutely nothing is working for him.
Poor Austyn slipped getting out of the bath and managed to smash his teeth straight into our tiled floor. This resulted in him shattering his front four teeth and chipping two either side. As you can see from the pictures below, it’s left him with a considerable gap, so eating and drinking is a real struggle for him.
We contacted Nuby to see if they thought any of their products might be suitable for him and were thrilled when we were sent the utterly fantastic 360 Maxi No-Spill Cup. Nuby’s smart cup is designed for little ones 12 months and over and gets little people ready for grown-up drinking from a regular cup, making the transition super easy. Not only did Austyn adapt to it instantly allowing him independence at mealtimes again but it also has a smart spill-proof seal to avoid endless annoying leaks and spills, and it’s also dentist-approved which is an absolute must in our situation.
The great thing is, you can fill this up, pop the lid on and chuck it in the change bag and it doesn’t leak – at all! Even upside down. That, in a toddler cup, is a rare find!
Not only is this a really positive review for a truly excellent product but it’s also a big heartfelt thank you to the media guys at Nuby who sent these for us to try. We didn’t think Austyn was ever going to find a suitable cup.
***UPDATE***6 MONTHS LATER***
I’d like to update this post as there are a lot of sippy cups that do not benefit the transition to proper cups as our kids grow up. However, Baby Moo has been using the Nuby 360 Maxi cup exclusively and has recently transitioned to drinking without the silicone seal and there have been no spills. Not only is this cup practical, but it also teaches valuable development skills. Another big plus! Even for a child who is suffering a disability in development.
