MAM Training Cup

As a mom I strive to find the best for all of my children. Now as a grandmother and an aunt I try my best to ensure that they are introduced to awesome products as well. On this list of great products for little ones you will find many products from MAM.

MAM products are designed to satisfied both stylistic requirement and functional needs. MAM products are as unique as the little ones they are designed for. Every MAM creation is designed with medical and technological expertise. Internationally renowned scientists, medical practitioners, midwives and development psychologists work together with designer sand technology specialists in the MAM studios. Ensuring that MAM products are developed to ensure that the combination of style, technological innovation and medical know how produces unique premium products. MAM is the leading designer brand for baby accessories. Parents choose to buy a MAM product on more than 40 million occasions around the world every single year.

MAM training cups combine form and function to successfully help babies learn to drink from the standard glass. I love that the old fashioned bottle form is gone and has now been replaced by a new form which resembles a cup. Each cup is ergonomically designed to fit baby sized hands, making them easy to grip and hold and in my personal opinion sets them up for a bit of independence at an early stage. I also love the idea of the spill proof spouts perfect the little ones on the go. MAM training cups are available in an assorment of colors and designs. All MAM products are BPA free, PVC free, lead free and CPSIA - compliant. Easy to care for because they are dishwasher safe and specially formulated to withstand steam sterilization in the microwave.  

MAM Trainer features small handles which are ideal for babies learning to become more independent. Soft spout helps ease baby's transition from sucking to drinking. Available in 8 oz. size perfect for babies ages 4+ months. 

MAM Learn to Drink Cup with Soft Spout perfect for those little ones transitioning from breast or bottle to training cup. Features a soft spout and a slim shape that allows for an easy grip. Available in 6 oz. size perfect for little ones 6+ months.  

MAM Learn to Drink Cup with Hard Spout designed to teach babies to drink from a regular cup. Features a hard spout to help prepare baby for the next phase of development. Available in 9 oz.size and perfect for babies 8+ months.

We were able to review the trainer cup from MAM.  I love this product perfect for those little hands and don't worry the spout is spill proof so little spills are less to happen. I love the cute design that was on the trainer cup so super cute. My thoughts are who would not love the little trainer cup.
