I want to first and foremost thank MAM Baby Products for being a part of our Mommy & Me Birthday Bash! MAM is a household name to most parents first time or not. Being able to choose a product they know is BPA-FREE and will help with the developmental stages our children go through. Davin is currently 10 months old and has been bottle free since about three months. He takes his drinks two ways; straight from the tap, or from a sippy cup! We were sent these products to test to allow us to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own and in no way have been influenced.
MAM baby products sent both the 4+ months starter cup and trainer bottle. The first step to independent drinking and an easy transition to a cup. The starter cup is a 5oz container and the trainer bottle is a 8oz. The starter cup retails around $6.99 and the trainer bottle at about $7.99.
My son loved the trainer bottle right from the first sip. He enjoys having handles to hold on to and grip. This comes with both a bottle nipple and a spout. I found the spout to be a bit difficult to use with the valve in place but I presume that is user error. However, if you take this piece out it is no longer spill proof! Trial and error! The nipple, spout, valve, and handles are all compatible with MAM wide neck bottles and trainers. The Trainer also offers measurements on the sides if you are still doing blends or mixes of beverages.
The smaller 5oz Starter Cup my son was not thrilled with at this time. He tried to take a few sips and threw it out of his crib. It is bit harder and more formed than the Trainer cup so it may take a few more tries to get him to want it just as much. It does have the ability to remove the valve for easier drinking, I just think Davin is finally embracing the sucking motions for sippy cups that it will take him a bit to want to learn a new method of drinking.
Both products feature non slip handles for a great and easy hold. They also have caps to protect from dirt and other airborne things while out and about or if placing back in the fridge.
They are great products to have for at home and on the go. They come in a variety of colors and have many stages to go from here to keep growing in developments just as your child will!
