When a baby begins to learn adult food, he learns to chew, put food in his mouth with a spoon and drink from a cup. It is very difficult, because the child only sucked milk all its life. Of course, the first time, food will soil everything around, and drinking will invariably spill over.
While it is very difficult and inconvenient to use an adult cup, pediatricians and pediatric dentists categorically reject the bottle with the nipple. The best alternative is the baby bottle. This is a transitional variant, allowing you not to splash out the liquid and acquire the necessary skills to drink from adult dishes.
Among this category of goods are the following main types:
- Drinking a bowl with a hard nose is the easiest option;
- non-spill poker with a stiff or flexible spout;
- poilnik with a straw.
There are quite a few of the specified types of pots that have different prices sold in stores. Let's try to figure out what is the difference between these at first glance similar products.

A good bowl, everything is conveniently disassembled and can even be washed in a dishwasher. I especially liked the fact that the set included 2 spouts at once for a smooth transition from the bottle.
Lubby Silicone Spout
A non-spill cup will help the baby gradually drop the bottle and start drinking from the cup. Silicone spout is convenient for the baby, like a nipple, but due to its shape it motivates the child not to suck, but to drink liquid. A transparent graduation bottle will allow you to easily prepare the mixture and pour the exact amount of liquid.

Best Drink Fingers
Cup with Pigeon tube
Small children who have not tried to drink from a cup often do not understand exactly how this is done. The easiest way for them to learn to drink first is from a straw. Pigeon poilon is equipped with a comfortable, soft silicone tube that does not allow the liquid to spill out of the cup, does not injure the delicate oral mucosa and conveniently folds when the lid is closed. The rubberized bottom of the cup gives extra stability. Ergonomic handles allow the child to easily hold the trough. Bright design attracts attention. Durable plastic will never break, no matter how much you throw. The lid is securely fixed in the open state, without risking to hit the baby on the nose.

Silicone tubule is the best way for mothers of those babies who reject ordinary drinkers and nipples. Thanks to the swivel design, the tube is conveniently folded and hermetically sealed - it is convenient to take the bottle anywhere with you without the risk of fluid leakage. The tubule is disconnected if necessary. Like all Avent products, it has interchangeable parts with other bottles. Convenient to wash and disassemble. Large volume allows you to quench your thirst even for big children.

What is better to buy a baby?
Despite the fact that the choice of the drinker depends largely on the individual preferences of the child and the family budget, there are some general parameters by which you can choose the most high-quality thing. So, each cup must be:
- made from safe material;
- easily versed and collected;
- convenient for small pens;
- atraumatic for baby's tender mouth.
For the youngest children, of course, it is advisable to use non-spillage products to prevent liquid spillage. It is quite suitable and simple inexpensive Lubby, and Happy Baby "Ergo Cup", and Avent. Children after a year begin to learn more accurate use, so for them you can choose simple models without a valve, like a tale of a fairy tale, because the liquid will spill only if it is turned upside down.
If the child does not want to make an effort or he categorically rejects the drinking nozzles, he will surely like to drink from a silicone tube. Pigeon and Avent are excellent examples of such models; this is a win-win option, even a very small child can learn to drink from it.
Whichever cup is chosen by a caring mother, it can be approved only after testing by the main expert - the child himself.
