Weil Baby Training Cups

For the past thirty years Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., has spent his time developing, practicing and teaching the principles of integrative medicine. As the founder of Weil Lifestyle, LLC he has spent a lifetime of investigating natural and preventative medicine. In other words, Weil is very much in tune with using health care for not just the body but the mind and spirit as well.
Weil Baby is a product line spin-off from the good doctor. The 9 oz (also in 5 oz size) drinking cup ($9.99) is made from the revolutionary material Tritan™ and comes standard with the proprietary AirWave™ venting system that helps reduce colic and gas. Another benefit is that all the cups in the line are completely BPA and toxin free.
I love that the training and drinking cup colors are vibrant and modern. There is a nice aesthetic sense of style without a cutesy feel. I found it handy that both the types of cups (training and drinking) had wide mouths making it easy to pour milk, juice or formula into either at home or on the go. It also makes cleaning the cups a breeze. The handle on each style removes with ease as does the cap. The caps, by the way, make great little snack holders in the car too. The ounces listed on the cups are another plus, however they tend to scratch off easy, which annoyed me.
I also love the fact that all after-tax profits from royalties from sales of Weil Baby products go directly to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.
Overall, I like these toxin free cups. They are durable, easy to clean and wear well despite the rubbed off numbers.
