Your child can start using the cup from around 8 months as his/her first cup (child development is however individual and the age can therefore vary a bit). The cup’s grip-friendly shape and surface make it easy for small hands to lift and hold, while a big foot with a rubber ring on the base makes the cup stable and hard to knock over.
TIP: An adult can feed baby from the cup/hold the cup in the beginning and when the baby begins to get interested and has the motor skills to hold the cup, it becomes natural for the baby to do it himself/herself. Baby will love experimenting in the beginning and by filling small amounts at a time, spills will be a natural part of learning.
