Perfect Training Cup!
June 12, 2017
I received the Chicco NaturalFit Rim Trainer Cup about a week ago and have had my 6-month-old experiment daily with using it. My baby is fairly new to cups, so I was unsure how this would work out. I was pleasantly surprised! My goal is for my little guy to use regular cups, and I think this is a wonderful first step! The cup is brightly colored with a royal blue lid and lighter blue handles. However, the vessel is clear, which is great so you can see how much liquid is inside. There is even an adorable little hippopotamus on the front. The colors definitely caught my son's interest. There isn't an overabundance of parts, which is appreciated when you're a mom, and it's easy to clean on the top rack of the dishwasher. The very top part of the lid is a silicone piece, secured by the screw on plastic ring. This piece has two openings which are slatted, so that water can't pour out, but comes out slowly. This cuts down on the mess for sure! Baby can see the water in the lip as it comes out, this will make it easier to learn how to drink, I believe. Although, mine was just fascinated with the liquid and proceeded to experiment with different ways to get it to escape. This was not a surprise, but I still didn't feel I had to clean up an inordinate amount of water. The handles are easy for him to grab, but I did have to fill it pretty high in order for him to tip it and get water. I seriously love this cup though! I will be buying more! I got a chance to try this cup as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.
