Bin The Bottle

Using a bottle beyond 12 months can:

  • Increase the chances of tooth decay due to liquids having prolonged contact with the teeth

  • Effect how the teeth develop

  • Prevent development of the muscles needed for speech

Children should be encouraged to use a free flow beaker cup from 6 months of age.

These cups:

  • Allow liquid to flow freely

  • Teach children how to sip their drink, rather than suck

  • Helps to develop the skills required for drinking from a cup

Why not swap your bottle for one of our beaker cups?
