It becomes clear that babies are ready to transition out of a bottle and into a sippy cup when they begin trying to hold the bottle themselves. The transition process can be frustrating for baby and for parents, but the Gentle Transition Cup is ideal to make the training process easier. While feeding, the uniquely designed nipple flexes as baby's head moves. This allows baby to maintain proper latch, decreasing ingestion of air and reducing feeding frustrations for baby. With the removable, easy-grip soft handles and a snap-tight lid, this cup is ideal for both homes and in a hurry.
