Disadvantages: Very minor things
These anyway up cups are absolutely fabulous. You wouldn't believe how many cups I've been through before I found these. I tried so many cups before I found these, all of them claimed to be no spill cups but none of them lived up to their claims.
These Anyway Up Training Cups do, it doesn't matter what your children do they actually work and don't spill. The only Anyway Up Cup I've ever seen that spilt was my friends little boy and he had literally spent about nine months gnawing at the spout of the cup until he'd finally gnawed through the plastic.
I have several of these cups two at home for my toddler, one for overnight in his cot in case he wants a drink of water, the other for day time. I have one at my Mum and Dads house too for when they cared for my children while I was at work, now on Maternity leave it just means that I don't have to take a cup when I visit. These cups are the perfect solution for me as I always like my sons to have a drink in easy reach but don't like to have to clean up more because of this. The fact that my toddler can wake in the middle of the night, help himself to a sip or so of water and put the beaker back down anyway up without wetting the cot seals the deal for me.
They are made of sturdy plastic and my children haven't managed to break them yet. They've both used the cups I've bought, and I think they'll last for my third son, so that's constant use for about two years, mine look as good as new but my son's don't gnaw or bite things generally. These aren't good for when you first start cup training because you need to be able to suck to get the liquid out, my sons have all been breastfed so they couldn't suck at first and were both about one before they could use these cups.
The downside are they aren't very cheap, but if you factor in the saved money in cleaning products and extra washing and the time you'll save they are brilliant value for money at £2.00 for the two handled small cup and a little more for the larger beaker with no handles. You do need one of those small bottle brushes to clean them properly as you can't get your fingers in the spout to clean it and sometimes they can be a little harder to open. But weighing these up against the fact that you aren't always finding wet patches of spilt drinks or there aren't trails of liquid following your toddler round as he hangs his cup off one finger while he's walking.
I would recommend these Anyway Up Training Cups to anyone and the fact that I still use them and expect to use them when I cup train my third son should say it all. Cost per use: 0.2p, and still going strong.
Summary: Save yourself time, you don't need to clean up spills unnecessarily.
