Pops is pretty good with drinks, at meal times she tends to have a normal cup like mummy and daddy and loves to have tea (warm milk) in her little tea cup but although she’s good at drinking from them she doesn’t watch when she’s walking and loves to attempt to climb the sofa holding the cup… which almost always ends up with drink everywhere.
These little silicone lids/covers are not only great for little ones, they can be great for elderly people too. Check out the Safe Sip website for more info and a great little video.
When I open the packet and pulled out the lids they were so soft and flexible and smelt like play dough (which was very pleasant) it’s hard to believe these will hold liquid in and I had to put it straight to the test!
The packet says it fits most cups so I just grabbed the first one I could see and tried it and it worked great. There’s a little section on the top that allows a straw to fit through. It keeps the straw in place too which I liked, pops usually plays with them so it was a bonus knowing she couldn’t.
I wanted to make sure I tested it properly before risking it in pops hands so I turned it over and started shaking it (over the sink just in case) and it was fine. I don’t recommend doing that though… I just wanted to test it 😉
One thing I found was that if the lid is wet it’s really difficult to fit onto the cup so make sure you dry it first, which I’m sure most people would haha.
I was really pleased with how it works and loved testing it on different cups but make sure you test the fit before you use it (It fits most but you don’t wanna risk it not fitting the one you go to use) so you get the best experience you can.
I would definitely recommend it for children who can’t yet hold a cup without spilling (but must use a proper cup) and for people in general that want the independence of using a cup but for whatever reason may not be able to.
