When to introduce the Doidy Cup?
Even children as young as 3 months old find the two handled Doidy Cup easy to use. At first the parent may need to hold the bottom of the cup whilst gently putting the rim on the lower lip to allow baby to take what they want. As baby grows they will want to hold the handles and feed themselves.

Why is the cup slanted?
The sloping design allows a more natural upward and downward motion of the hands and arms (unlike bottles and sippy cups which require forward and backward movement of the head which often leads to spillages). It also makes the contents clearly visible to the child, when drinking.
