When my baby turned 18 months old, I started serving fruit juices, butter milk, and water through the feeding bottle (mostly glass). I was looking for sipper bottles when I found the Babyhug hard sprout sipper. So, the baby is learning to sip using the sipper bottle.
The heavy flow makes it difficult for the baby to control it. There is a controllable flow option, offered by a piece of plastic equipment, but it is not of much use in controlling the flow.
The cup size looks a bit small, but its capacity is wide enough for use till the baby is 2 years old. It is easy to handle for the baby, and easy to clean for me. It is of good quality material. The cup is also portable and easy to carry.
The cap inside is not too efficient. I fixed it tightly, but I have seen it come out when I tried to use it. I felt that it didn’t serve its purpose.
Sometimes, fixing the handle and the cap in proper alignment takes some time if you are in a hurry. But otherwise, once they are set, the sipper is leak-proof.
The baby likes to chew the hard spout, and enjoys doing it.
On the whole, I am using this on and off, because the baby is not able to control the flow of the water/milk. I use it for juices which are not too fluid. If I use the cap inside, the flow is very slow, and the baby is not able to wait that long to drink. If I remove it, the baby is not able to control the flow. The baby also has to tilt his head high at the end of the drink, because of the design of the cap.
Flow control need to be checked. May be some more colours can be added in the product line.
It is good for thick juices, and for babies above 1.5 years. For babies under 1.5 years, use the inside valve to avoid the flow.
