I was hesitant to buy this cup, as I have read hit or miss reviews, but it is great so far. This is a great step toward open cups. There is a learning curve to the cup. I had to loosen the lid and allow a dribble to come out to show my child where to drink from and to suck the edge. I could tighten to non-drip within 1 cup full.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
