Ill be the first to admit, we have a sippy cup graveyard. Pictured above are just some of the many cups and spouts that have occupied our home at some point. You would think after trying so many we would have found the perfect one right? Sadly we really haven't succeeded in being 100% happy with any one cup which is why I jumped at the chance to try the EIO cup.
The EIO cup was developed by a Mom who was sick of having a sippy cup graveyard. She was done with the leaking, mismatched tops, and endless parts. She thought of a way to use a regular glass mason jar protected by a silicone sleeve with a simple lid as a training cup. Born was the EIO kids cup.
This cup is marketed for the age group 18 months and up. Weston is only about 14 months now but I really love that we are able to use this cup as practice. Keep in mind that this cup does not promise, "spill free." There are no gimmicks and no valves. This is a cup for those children who are ready to train to use a regular cup. The great thing about the EIO kids cup is that once your child is ready you can remove the lid and use this as a regular cup.
Reasons you should buy this cup:
You are ready to help your child to prepare to drink from a regular cup.
This cup is glass and free of BPA/PVC/Phthalates
No cleaning of small parts
No small parts to loose.
This cup is reusable as your child grows.
Some things to Consider When Deciding If The EIO Cup Is For You:
This cup is not leak proof.
I like that this cup is glass and chemical free, however, Weston does like to throw things which concerns me. Obviously if we are sitting on the floor together and practicing drinking it is not such a big deal. The idea that he could chuck this cup from the highchair across the room is something I am slightly leary of. As Weston gets older I think this will be less and less of an issue.
