The Doidycup is from the makers of Bickiepegs. It is made in the UK from virgin food safe material and is suitable for babies from 3 months old. It was developed in the 1950s to teach baby’s to drink from a rim rather than a spout. The cup is slanted, allowing the baby to see the drink clearly, eliminating the need to tilt the head forward and backwards which could cause a spill. Drinking from the Doidycup also encourages good oral movement teaching the baby to sip using the jaw, tongue and mouth muscles which in turn develops chewing skills. The cup also helps to develop hand eye co-ordination.
I am a support worker for adults with learning disabilities and the Doidycup would be perfect for some of the people I support who can’t manage a mug but don’t want to use a beaker with a lid. I will definitely be recommending it to my colleagues.
The Doidycup comes in 17 colour choices and a resealable bag which I found really useful for keeping it clean when taking it out with us for the day. The cup can be hand washed, sterilised or put in the dishwasher.
Lucas enjoyed drinking out of it, I held the bottom of the cup and he held the handles. I did give him the cup when it was empty to see what he would do and he immediately picked it up with both hands holding the sides but couldn’t manage the handles without my support. I love the idea of the cup and I will continue to use it to teach Lucas how to use a cup properly but it won’t be completely replacing the other cups with spouts just yet x
The cups retail at £3.80 each. There is currently an offer on the Bickiepegs site to buy 3 for £10.26
