How it works

The transition from the bottle to a cup needs an extra step to help your baby and toddler along. That is what is so great about the sippy cup. It enables your child to learn how to grip and use and drink from a cup without the risk of spilling their drink all over the place. The designers at Philips Avent have designed a spill-free sippy cup that is ergonomically designed for your little one’s hands and it has a soft silicone spout that helps them feel comfortable while they are transitioning from bottle to cup. While BPA free and dishwasher safe, the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is a definite purchase for the parent who is looking to allow their little one to grow with ease. 

 

Ergonomic Design

Ergonomic Design

In order to make the sippy cup more friendly and easy to use, the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup has been made ergonomically to give your little one the ease of being able to hold the cup comfortably without it slipping from their hands. The sides of the cup are rippled with smooth curves all around the cup so that your child can have space for their little hands to wrap around the cup without it falling through their grip and hitting the table or floor. Your child will be able to feel what it really feels like to have a cup in their hand. This way, your child can figure out how to best drink from the cup and use their body and hand/eye coordination with motor skills to lift the cup and drink from it.

Another design perk to the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is that it is made of transparent plastic so that Mom and Dad can see what liquid is inside of the cup and how much of that liquid still remains in the cup. This helps parents to know how much their child is drinking and if the cup is working for their child. Parents can also stop their child from drinking too much of a liquid if it appears that the child is full.
The Spout

The Spout

Philips has made the spout of the My Easy Sippy Cup out of silicone so that your child will have the most comfortable experience possible. The silicone spout is great for when your child is just learning how to drink from the cup because the spout is flexible and soft. For those children that are just starting to teeth or have not gotten their teeth yet, the spout is soft on the gums of your child and won’t scrape them or cause any discomfort while they are drinking. With a comfortable drinking experience, your child will want to continue using the cup and will then stop wanting to drink out of a bottle.

The spout is also extremely flexible. The flexibility will help your child hold on to the cup easier. In the event that your child switches positions or handles the cup in a different way, the spout will bend to stay in your child’s mouth so that your child can continue holding the cup without the force of the hard spout causing the sippy cup to come out of your child’s mouth and crash to the floor or the table or the highchair tray. The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup also comes with a cover that goes on to the top of the cup so tightly that it keeps the spout of the cup completely clean and sterile for when you are on the go or you are storing the cup and its contents for later for when your child is thirsty or needs to feed.
Cleaning the Cup

Cleaning the Cup

The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is very easy to clean and maintain. All the parts come apart and go back together very easily and they are all completely dishwasher safe. The cap, the spout, the spill-proof mechanism, and the body of the cup can all be placed on the top rack of your dishwasher and cleaned with the rest of your items. For a quicker clean, the parts can also be hand washed as you would wash any dish or cup. Just make sure the cup is completely cleaned and rinsed off before putting your child’s liquid into the cup to ensure there is no leftover soap or residue in the cup.
BPA Free

BPA Free

The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is completely 100% BPA free. BPA stands for bisphenol A, which is a chemical agent that is found in some plastics and can seep into the liquids or foods that are placed into plastic containers. Philips Avent has made their My Easy Sippy Cup completely free of bisphenol A so that you can put liquids into the cup for your child to drink without the fear that toxins are seeping into their drink. Parents can have total peace-of-mind that their child will remain healthy and safe with this product.
Versatility

Versatility

Philips Avent makes a long line of sippy cup and bottle products that are part of a series of cups that help your child transition from the bottle to the cup. The Philips Avent My Sippy Cup is part of that series of cups and as a result, if you have any other of these products the parts and components can be switched with other cups and bottles for convenience as needed and kept for other children in the family who are starting or completing their transition from bottle to cup.
Motor Skills

Motor Skills

The physical benefit of using the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is that your child will get to develop their motor skills and upper body strength as they teach themselves how to pick up a cup, balance themselves, and then drink from the cup. Many parents will notice that their child will get very used to being in a reclined position when they drink or eat from a cup because that is how it was done when they were infants. When your child starts to drink from a cup from the first time, they are going to want to tip their heads all the way back to drink or eat and eventually lean their entire body back in order to feed. The first lesson that your child will learn is that they can keep themselves upright to drink. Because the cup of the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is designed for easy handling, your child will be able to learn how to balance themselves properly to drink. From the repetition of being in a highchair sitting upright, your child will engage their core strength to keep themselves still so that they can properly drink without any discomfort or without any type of imbalance that may cause them to drop their cup or not be able to drink from the spout.

The other physical benefit of the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is that your child will build their upper body and arm strength as they learn to manipulate the cup themselves to be able to drink with success. The movements of lifting up the cup, which will have some weight due to the fact that there will be liquid in the cup, and placing the cup to their mouths will help them develop their upper body and neck muscles. These same muscles will get a work out when your child plays with specific toys as well and that “workout” can be used as your child learns how to eat and drink from their cup.

The act of drinking from the cup also helps your child work on their hand/eye coordination skills. Your child will learn how to see an object, hold that object, and place their object in a certain place by knowing their spatial awareness and self-awareness. This skill will benefit your child when they play sports or do any other physical activities like dance. All of this is learned by figuring out how to drink from a cup.
Spill Proof

Spill Proof

The greatest benefit of the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup that parents enjoy the most is that the cup is completely spill proof. There is a mechanism in the cup that is placed underneath the spout between the spout and the liquid that prevents the liquid from running through the spout and out of the cup. The mechanism holds the liquid within the cup, and the only way the liquid can come out is if your child sucks on the spout to bring the liquid out of the container. Children at this age are still used to manipulating nipples and using suction that way to feed that they will continue to use suction with the Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup, which will be a good way to use the spill proof mechanism.

Your child will be able to drop the cup, tip the cup, knock the cup over, and drink from the cup without any leaks or any risk of the contents coming out on to clothes, furniture, food, or the crib or bed. The cup is completely secure to use anywhere, and the spill proof design is also great for when you are transporting the cup from one place to another in a diaper bag or carriage as you will never have to worry about whether or not the cap comes off or if the cup goes upside down in the bag and the contents spill out. Parents can have complete peace-of-mind that the spill proof cup will always be secured and the contents always contained.
Price

Price

The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is so inexpensive that any parent can fit this cup into their budget. When purchased online from major retailers, the cups come two to a pack, so you can double the cups for an extremely low price. The price is a steal considering that the cups can last you a long time, and they are so easy to clean and keep safe that they will not lose their capabilities to teach your child how to drink on their own and how to lift and maneuver their bodies. In the event that cups do get dropped or broken or lost, you can very easily replace them for the price that it costs to purchase them. The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is so affordable that you can buy several of them at one time and always have one handy. This is a product that parents should seriously consider buying due to its benefits and affordable price.

Conclusion

The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is part of a bigger line of products by Philips Avent that help your child transition from the bottle to the cup. It is designed to be easy for your little one to learn how to drink from a cup, and with its spill proof mechanism, parents can have the peace-of-mind of knowing the contents of the cup will remain in the cup and not leak out or spill everywhere. The cup also has an extremely low price that makes it an even better purchase because you will be able to buy the cups and give your child the benefits of being able to learn to drink from the cup and build their motor skills and coordination skills at the same time. The Philips Avent My Easy Sippy Cup is a must buy product for parents who want to make the transitional period of bottle to cup easy for their child who is already learning so much.
