FAQ Cups

Before using for the first time, sterilize all the parts in boiling water during 5 minutes. After every use, wash all the components separately, especially the valve, with lukewarm water and neutral detergent. The valve has to be sanitized frequently(according to its use) by submerging it in water with one or two drops of bleach during 5 minutes, then rinse very well to eliminate all traces of bleach. We do not recommend sterilizing the cup body, code 25149.

The non spill system does not work properly for juices with pulp or sodas which, on the other hand, are not recommended for young children. Remember that babies are born with their digestive system not fully developed, the pediatrician shall indicate when juices with pulp, and eventually sodas, can be incorporated into your child’s diet. Thick liquids such as smoothies or milk with cereal can get stuck in the valve and in the spout hole making it difficult or impossible for your child to suck properly. We do not recommend using this cup with hot beverages.
