A little help

Learn to drink independently with the Difrax spout cups and straw cups.

Goodbye, mess!

At a certain point, your child will want to do everything on its own. Learning how to drink independently is one of these things. Because your child isn’t used to this yet, it’s bound to get a bit messy. The Difrax spout cups and straw cups have a unique non-spill system. Even if your child holds the cup upside down, the drink will stay inside of the cup. Goodbye, mess!

Difrax non-spill drinking cups

Ergonomic drinking cups

The inside of the Difrax spout cups and straw cups is cone shaped. This enables the fluid to flow toward the spout, even when the cup is in a horizontal position. This way, your child won’t have to hold its neck all the way back while drinking. Your child can drink while sitting up straight, which is better for the neck.

Non-spill system with two drinking speeds 

The non-spill spout cups have a two-position, non-spill system that allows you to adjust the drinking speed yourself. Choose “slow” for thin drinks and slow drinking and choose “fast” for thick drinks and quick drinking. 

The Difrax straw cup can be used from 12 months onward. Around this age, most children are able to control their own drinking speed. For this reason, the straw cups come in only one drinking speed position. 

Hygienic drinking cups

The Difrax non-spill spout cups and straw cups are completely demountable, from the non-spill system to the straw. Therefore, the cups are easy to clean and can also be put in the dishwasher. In our store, you will also find a special brush for the straws, loose straws and a loose anti-leak valve. 

Medical team

Difrax’s drinking cups meet the highest standards and have been developed in collaboration with a medical team.

When to start with a drinking cup?

From six months onward, most children are physically able to hold a cup. In the beginning, they will need a cup with handles. The age at which a child is ready for this can vary a lot. We would therefore recommend that you always keep an eye on your child’s individual needs.

Which cup should I choose?

Below, we will explain the differences between the Difrax drinking cups, as well as the ages from which they can be used.

Drinking cups with a soft spout

The non-spill drinking cup with a soft spout is the ideal cup to start with. The soft silicone drinking spout is quite similar to the teat of a baby bottle. This helps create an easy transition. 

The spout cup with a soft spout can be used from about six months onward.

Drinking cups with a hard spout

The non-spill drinking cup with a hard spout is a good follow-up to the non-spill cup with a soft spout. As soon as your child starts teething, it’s time to make the switch. The hard spout is more solid, which prevents your child from biting the spout and damaging it. 

The spout cup with a hard spout can be used from about nine months onward.
