REVIEW | Haberman Penguin Cup

Logan didn't seem to get the hang of his sippy cup straight away. When we first introduced water at 6 months, we tried the most basic Tommee Tippee First Cup but this did'nt go down well. Logan just wanted to chew the spout and would throw the cup around everywhere out of frustration which ended up in everything and everyone being soaking wet.
I thought we should try a non-spill cup with a softer spout so we tried the Tommee Tippee First Sips Cup This one at first didn't go down well either, he just wanted to chew the spout. So we decided to give up and just give him water in his bottle. We tried again at 7 months with the soft spout but he still didn't get than hang of it. Eventually when we tried again at 9 months he seemed to get the hang of the spout. So I've been reluctant to try any more cups because 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' right?

When Haberman got in contact to ask if we would be be interested in trying some of their range I thought it would be worth a go to try something new and see how Logan got on.

Penguin cup 

Featuring the fully integrated leak-proof valve, these super cool penguin cups with a twist-on lid and spout will delight youngsters at their early stage of drinking independence.
Not only do they eliminate spillage, but the design also protects growing teeth by allowing a flow of liquid only when the child sucks and swallows.  
The ultimate must-have weaning product for all penguin lovers!

On first impression the cup looks great and it does look quite penguin like. The handles are designed to look a lot like a penguins flippers and I thought Logan might find them quite hard to hold on to because they're quite thick but he managed fine. There is no guage on the side to tell you how much water youre little one has drank. I found this quite annoying, especially as Logan has the cold and I like to know roughly how much fluid he's getting but it's not necessarily something that would put me of buying it. The sucking however, was something he didn't master. I tried it myself and to get the water out you need to suck quite hard (ooh err ;)) He spent quite a bit of time chewing at the spout but he got very little water out. 
Since then anytime he's tried the cup, he's struggled to get much water out. I'm quite disappointed because the cup looks great but it's just too much hard work. I don't think we'll percivere with it much longer. I might bring it out in another month or two and see if he gets the hang of it then but for the moment, the cup isn't for us.
