Unfortunately, the cup has been discontinued while Ben’s cup is falling apart.

Ben has been using that cup for about 12 years now.

Though Ben’s family was able to get a replacement cup about 3 years ago, they are in desperate need of another one.

According to Ben’s family, he won’t drink out of any other cup – they have tried.

If the cup is a different color or a different style, Ben won’t use it.

It is not that Ben is being obstinate, he is non-verbal and doesn’t understand.

Ben will refuse to drink and has ended up in the emergency room twice with severe dehydration.

Ben’s dad, Marc Carter, has now gone to the internet pleading for help.

The sad dad has even offered a reward to anyone who can find this cup that is no longer being made.

Can you help? If so contact Marc or contact Tommee Tippee to see if they can get Ben a new cup!
