The rounding of the edges makes it difficult for small hands to grip the plate and toss it aside.

Baby Cup
When can my child start using the BABYBJÖRN Baby Cup?

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 somewhat).
