    Lovi 360 Junior cups

    Maria posted these on Facebook, and thought I would share there here also.

    If it is a beverage, Nadia will most likely run toward it. When she's done, she will usually set (read: drop) the cup down wherever; on the bed, on the couch, on the floor... little rascal. She also has broken quite a few mugs already.

    But these seem to be great. The have a little silicone gasket to help keep liquids in - they aren't spill proof, but a little leak is better than the entire cup contents. They have to learn how to drink from it (tip it like a regular cup, but the also need to suck a little). It took Nadia about 1 minute to figure it out. Also, after she has finished drinking she will still walk around sucking on the lips of the cup.

    I did a search for these, and could only find them on Amazon UK, but maybe they are located State-side also.

    That looks awesome. We have yet to fine the perfect cup that does not leak. The valveless ones leak and the ones that have valves leak.

    It doesn't help that our kids have the strength of Hercules so they throw the cup so hard the valves always work their way out.

    These look absolutely ideal. Thanks for the pictures too.

    It's actually strange with Daniel but he used to throw cups in earlier years, then he would drop them sometimes a couple of years ago but now I've found if I give him one of those toughened glass teacups that are shaped like a vase he holds onto these and sips away very happily for quite a while. He seems to savour drinking more these days.
    Lots of love and good wishes

    I think this is appropriate for the thread


    It is also funny to note, the line before this was "I do not understand how someone can eat a entire box of Pop-Tarts and still be hungry..." This sounds like MPS children to me.

    Those do look great! We always used straw cups with Logan, but I would have tried something like that when he was still able to use a cup.
