It just so happened that my daughter and I became the owners of a small collection of containers for drinking, and therefore we know firsthand the features of some types of drinking bowls. This knowledge and hurry to share!
The acquisition of our first baby cup for drinking or in common drinking cups (poilochki) is associated with the entry of the baby in the first group of friends.
In several children she saw this colorful miracle of technology and at the time she made it clear with all her small capabilities that she wanted to drink from the same vessel.
And indeed – in practice, it turned out to be very convenient to use a feeder. We bought the so-called sports version – a plastic cup with a rubber tube, the lid spins on the thread, capacity – 250 ml.
The novelty of the process of quenching thirst through a tube delighted the little man! It is very convenient to use a horizontal drinker in a stroller – the baby does not need to tilt the head uncomfortable, and the mother does not even need to participate in the process of drinking, for fear that the baby will spill water on herself.
Anyway, the water does not spill out of the tank. And the tube always remains clean: without using a bowl, you close the tube with a special stationary lid, simply by throwing a plastic hemisphere.
Both of us were pleased and pleased with this drinker, while the daughter did not chew the rubber tube through which to drink. But used it for a long time – about six months.
I decided to try the next drink without a straw – on the principle of an ordinary glass, only with a spout for drinking.
In part, this was dictated by fears that the constant sucking from the tube may adversely affect the proper formation of bite. The information has not yet been confirmed by professionals, so I do not dare to convince in its authenticity.
However, the acquisition was just that. Water is drunk from such a tank very easily, but it also pours out easily when the baby turns the trough. So that the water does not spill, the spout should be lowered into a horizontal position, but the daughter, of course, did not.
Yes, and just do it – as a drinker, he didn’t like her, but to this day, like an ordinary cup, we use it for a sweet soul.
The lid is worn simply by pressing, and therefore the edges of the cup are smooth, without thread, comfortable to drink. Plus extra comfort – two handles on the sides.
So, after a while, for walks, we again bought a sports poilochku with a tube.
However, either there was a manufacturing defect in it, or Anyuta cracked it with the floor – but the tank was leaking in the closed state. And when I put it in my bag, both the bag and all the things in it became wet.
Big, beautiful, but.
By the time of purchase of the next cup for liquid, it was found that in the warm season, the volume of water of 250 ml is very, very short for a walk to quench the baby’s thirst.
And then I found something that I fell in love with at first sight – a colorful bottle with a tube in the shape of a thermos with a capacity of as much as 400 ml. Anya and I could not get enough of it.
However, we were only happy for a week, and this is why. The fact is that the material of all the previous vessels resembled some kind of rubberized plastic, and this one was made of rigid thick plastic. And at the first unsuccessful fall on the asphalt, he just burst.
Now we again use a drinking bowl on the principle of a glass, but of a completely different configuration – with a soft rubber spout that closes with a lid. It also spills water when turning over, only the daughter is much more mature and understands that this can not be done.
She easily removes and puts the cap on the nose. The ridge rubberized surface allows children’s handles to not slide and hold it with little effort. And his capacity is rather big – 330 ml.
Beautiful and useless!
We have one more cup – from the category of those who do not need to buy. They gave it to us – and Anuta occasionally uses it as a toy, because he is no good for more.
Insanely beautiful – it resembles a container for cocktails with a straw, in the leg a charming fairy swims in liquid in a circle of swirling sparkles.
