Training bottles and cups for babies
Although practical for parents as they are unbreakable and leakproof, such training aids should only be limited to a transition period until the child has learned how to drink from a glass. Even at an age of five to six months, babies can get used to drinking from such training aids. At the latest when baby food is introduced, babies should be increasingly offered water or tea to drink. Drinking then no longer serves the mere intake of food but has much more to do with quenching thirst.
