Would recommend for cleft lip/palate
My niece was born with a cleft lip and palate and I was looking for a product to help her transition to a sippy cup. There are so many choices out there and going through them all is so overwhelming. A lot of sippy cups we tried simply did not work because she was unable to create suction in her mouth and most sippy cups that are spill-proof require a lot of suction. We found this after her lip and palate surgeries but it would have been great for both before AND after her surgery as there is no suction needed to drink out of it. The cup allows drinking from around the whole cup so I felt it really boosted her confidence because drinking was easy. It's technically conidered to be spill-proof but she quickly figured out that she could just push on the top and tip the cup upside down to make a mess! Also if she dropped it and something pushed down on the top, it would leak. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with a cleft baby. I hope this review saves another parent with a cleft baby from trying numerous sippy cups that aren't suitable.
