The Phillips AVENT BPA- free trainer spout cup is amazingly spill proof no matter whether it’s used at home or out and about, yet it’s easy to drink from. The spouts with valves also fit the feeding bottles so they become spill-proof too. The patented valve controls flow and ensures no spillage, even if the bottle is held upside down or left on its side. The soft, flexible spout is ideal for the transition from breast or bottle to a cup. The Handles are specially contoured for little hands to hold comfortably and they are easy to fit or remove so cups can be used with or without handles.
The flip-top lid always gives you hygienic reassurance, keeping the spout clean at home and when on the go. The cups, spouts and handles can be used with the entire Philips AVENT range; attach directly to breast pumps or use a teat instead of the spout when feeding. The soft spout and handles can also be put on the feeding bottle for an easy transition from bottle to cup. The entire cup can be sterilised for hygiene purposes. And all parts are dishwasher safe for convenience.

Some babies transfer from bottle to cup easily, but others find the transition difficult seeking comfort in their familiar bottle and teat. However, it is essential that parents persevere and aim to achieve the swap to cup drinking by the end of their first year. Drinks flow slowly through a teat which means it takes a long time for your child to finish the drink, and many health professionals believe this can delay in the start of speech for children.
In addition to this, drinking from a bottle can cause liquids to pool around the teeth. Bacteria in your child's mouth can change the sugars in the drink into acids that can dissolve tooth enamel, causing tooth decay.
Babies can try the transition from bottle to cup as early as 6 or 7 months old, although success will depend upon each individual and parents should bear in mind that some babies simply will take longer to get the hang of the change. It is a good idea to start with a soft spout trainer cup, as this is more similar to a teat compares to a hard spout and will feel more familiar to your baby.
Show your child how to raise the cup to his mouth and tip it up to drink from it. Once your baby is happy and drinking confidently you can start to move them on to a beaker with a hard spout and then an open lidded cup with handles.
Some cups have a spout with a non-spill valve and although it might make drinking a less messy experience you may find your toddler has to work much harder to get the drink to flow. Try taking the valve out so that the liquid flows more freely, or use a lidded cup without a valve. Some parents teach their children to use open cups from an early age and dispense with lidded cups entirely.
Try not to worry if your baby doesn’t take to this transition immediately, it will happen! Try to stay relaxed so your baby doesn’t pick up on your tension about this process, and leave the cup where they can find it easily and you’ll find they will start to drink from their new cup when they are ready.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics like baby bottles because it is less likely to crack or shatter, which can lead to injuries. Recently some scientists have shared a worry that BPA could leach from the plastic into liquid held in the baby bottle, especially when bottles are heated to extreme temperatures, and the chemical may affect the body, particularly in young children. Therefore, Philips AVENT products are now produced using an alternative material which is BPA free.

Philips AVENT believes that breast feeding is the best method of nutrition for babies and that women should be given as much information and education as possible regarding the benefits of breast milk. Philips AVENT believes that it is every mother’s right to make her own personal decision to how she feeds her baby – bottle, breast or a combination of both - and Philips AVENT will support her in whatever choice she makes.
