Doidy Cup

Satu lagi produk bayi yang mau saya review: Doidy Cup

Suka banget sama Doidy Cup. Kenapa? Because it’s made in Britain! Saya sangat terinspirasi dengan produk & desainer Inggris karena mereka benar-benar menggunakan design thinking untuk memecahkan masalah bukan cuma sekedar mendekor.

Doidy Cup ini buatan Bickiepegs, salah satu perusahaan desain di Inggris yang fokus pada kesehatan mulut anak mulai dari 3 bulan hingga 2 tahun ke atas. Desain Doidy Cup ini terbilang unik. Bibir gelas wujudnya asimetris dengan bagian yang dipakai untuk minum lebih tinggi levelnya (the sloping design) sehingga lebih gampang untuk diminum dan alur gerak tangan bayi lebih natural saat memegang doidy cup dibanding dengan saat memegang sippy cup. Cara kerjanya simple banget: seperti minum dari gelas. Bagi saya ini cocok buat Anansa karena dia sama sekali nggak mau minum dari spout cup. 

THE DOIDY CUP offers a unique slant on baby weaning and open cup training. The two-handled Doidy Cup, has been scientifically designed with a unique slant in order to teach infants to drink from a rim, rather than from a spout or a teated bottle. Health Professionals, the Government* and leading health organisations such as The British Dietetic Association* are active in recommending the introduction of an open cup at around 6 months of age and completely stopping the use of a bottle by 12 months. As well as teaching valuable skills there are a number of critical health benefits associated with open cups compared to other drinking vessels.

Nilai plus nya lagi adalah si bayi mulai bisa latihan minum sendiri dari gelas. Kalau di kemasannya tertulis bisa digunakan dari 3 bulan. Kalau Anansa, pakai doidy cup sejak usia 6 bulan Anansa dan lancar jaya malah jadi doyan minum air putih. Kekurangannya: karena permukaan gelas tidak rata, jadinya susah cari tutupnya.

BY DESIGN – young infants (from around 3 months) find the two handled Doidy Cup easy to drink from because:

  • The contents are clearly visible when drinking;
  • The sloping design allows a more natural upward and downward motion of the hands and arms (unlike bottles and sippy cups which require forward and backward movement of the head);
  • It teaches them to drink from an open cup and how to put it down correctly;
  • Children are less likely to overfeed;

The above benefits allow mothers to make the move from breast to open cup in one step rather than introducing a teat or spout.
