I loved these cups and bottles and so did my son. The Gerber Transitions cups and bottles are the best! I was so upset when I went to buy some for this little one and they have been discontinued due to BPA. My son did so well with these, he even weaned himself off the bottle himself. I love the handles and the non-standard shape that make it easier for gripping. The spout is soft, but when chewed on does not fall to pieces. I wish Gerber would re-release these as BPA free.
The Gerber Nuk Transition Cup was the first sippy cup that I purchased for my baby. I thought it looked like the perfect transition from the bottle to a regular sippy cup, with the latex sip-spout and the detachable grip handles.
My daughter would not touch it! I tried several different liquids to see if it was a flavor preference. I tried several times as she grew and transitioned to the sippy cup to see if it was just a need to rebel in order to keep the bottle. To be prefectly honest, I think the latex sip-spout pinched her tongue and lips and too much fluid was coming out for her to keep up with.
After several honest attempts to use this cup (as well as several cleanings later) started to realize that it was becoming increasingly difficult to remove the screw-on spout. It got to the pint where I was even comfortable giving it away to my preganant sister-in-law, I just threw the thing away. **2 thumbs way down!**
