What Parents Are Saying About the Munchkin Gentle Transition Trainer Cup

Take a look at what these families love about this innovative piece of toddler drinkware.

“We love this trainer cup for our one-year-old son. He never took to a bottle and is still breastfed, so it's been a struggle trying to find a cup he will actually use for water during meals. This one has held up so far to rigorous chewing (he has 6 teeth) and has managed to stay intact through the daily abuse of being smacked on the high chair and thrown on the floor! I love that the handles are attached at the bottom to a removable piece from the cup. My son is finally figuring out sippy cups and how to pull water from the spout. The unique accordion-like silicone top makes all the difference. Because there's some give to it, he's not having to work as hard to figure out how to get the liquid out. I highly recommend this to anyone trying to transition a baby from breastfed-only! It is definitely working for us!”

“My daughter is breastfed and refused all Bottles! This was the only cup she would drink milk out of! So if you breastfeed and your baby refuses bottles this one’s worth a shot. She’s now 14 months and still drinks breast milk out of this when I’m gone. She won’t drink milk out of anything else.”

“The Munchkin Gentle Transition Cup is a great addition to my little one's feeding time because it allows her to switch from regular bottles to a sippy cup smoothly without any unfavorable reactions. I really like how easy it is to wash the cup afterwards and it's also dishwasher friendly as well. I didn't realize that the bottom portion of the transition cup was removable until after I read the directions. The nipple on this cup is also very soft similar to a regular bottle nipple, so that may be why my baby didn't have any issues using this cup for the first time, The easy grip handles on the transition cup made it easier for my baby to hold onto it while she is feeding because now that she is bigger I can give her cold milk and it didn't bother her because the handles were there on the transition cup.”

“OK, my baby is four months old and would refuse every bottle. I’ve tried Tommie Tippe, Avent, Minbie, Dr Brown, Nuk, boon... Anyway. One day I was drinking some water out of a smaller plastic cup. The baby kept reaching for it with her mouth by leaning in. I know she is teething so she likes to put EVERYTHING in her mouth minus bottles and pacifiers!!! Well. I put it up to her lips and she appeared to try to sip from it. I know probably just a coincidence. However, I got the great idea of trying a sippy cup. I went into the store and bought three different ones. This one is the one I’ve tried first. It was labeled as 4+ months. I figured why not eventually she might use it. I gave it a try and I tell you she was drinking from it!!! I’m free. I exclusively breastfeed. However, if ever I need to leave her for an hour or so I have an option now!”
