Your little one will find the transitions through various cup stages easier with this 4-in-1 Convert-a-cup by Nuby. The first step includes use of handles with our soft, silicone No-Spill Spout. For your additional convenience, the spout and lid are all one piece.Once your child is ready, the handles can be easily removed- or re-attached when needed. Finally, the one piece spout and lid can be removed when your child is ready for open cup drinking. Since this cup was designed especially for this, it does not have the screw ring grooves, making it ideal for your child to drink from easier.The contoured shape of the cup, with or without handles, makes it easier for your child's small hands to hold.
