WHY BABIES NEED TO LEARN TO DRINK FROM A CUP?
In the first few months of their lives, babies have a natural sucking reflex and breast feeding or feeding from a bottle is very comforting to them.
As babies grow, they need to learn to make different movements with their mouth that will help them to eat and speak properly – that’s why moving from a bottle to a cup is so important.
Drinking from the DOIDY Cup encourages good oral movement and helps to develop chewing skills.
Infants find this movement perfectly natural, therefore it is so easy to wean them from the breast or bottle
Breast fed babies from 3-4 months of age can go straight to a DOIDY cup, there is no need to use a bottle in the weaning process.
