I'm just wondering when everyone started their baby on a sippy cup? Ds is only 2.5 months, so I know we still have awhile. lol but I'm just curious. He only gets a bottle about 2-3times a day, maybe 4 times a week; so I'm pretty sure it isn't going to be hard to make the switch.

I gave him a sippy at 6 months or so. Took away the bottle completely at 10 months.

I tried when my daughter was 6 months. Just be ready to try a bunch of different styles on sippy cups. My daughter only uses the straw ones

both of mine started a sippy at 6 months. My first son was completely of the bottle a week after his first birthday hopefully it will be the same for my 7 month old

You can introduce a sippy cup with a few oz of water around the same time you introduce solids. I suggest all mamas try "parents choice no spill" sippy cup! It's amazing and my son loved it instantly and knew how to use it right away.

I don't plan on putting scar on a bottle so I think in gonna try toget her using a sippy around 6mos for when I go back to work in aug that way she can just have that.

I've been trying for about a month now. He was 6 months we we started. I have the Nuby ones and I think they're great. He kind of has the idea: will hold it and put it up to his mouth a little, but doesn't really suck. Now if I hold it to his mouth and show him he sucked once or twice, but has not put it all together yet!

6 months. My daughter hated the kind that were the hard plastic. They are very difficult to try and drink out of (even if you try it!) So I switched her to some other ones and she liked those a lot more. She was completely off the bottle by her first birthday. :) When it comes to weening the bottle (quite a time down the road for you) but just start introducing the cup more as something better and more interesting for him. Try to create a good connection (although not overly attached because eventually he will be transitioned to actual cups as well, lol). ^_^ My daughter is turning 3 in June and is a pro at drinking out of regular cups, although she still gets a no spill cup when she is running around, playing and all that business.
