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
started at 9 mo and I will be taking the bottle in a few days :/ 12 months old.
6 months. She sort of has the hang of it now at almost 7 months but she still gets it everywhere, lol.
Quoting BoogaButt's Momma.:" I'm just wondering when everyone started their baby on a sippy cup? Ds is only 2.5 months, so I know ... [snip!] ... 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."
started trying at 10 months. she didnt accept it at all until around 14 months and then only the straw cups.
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
We introduced it at 6 months but she didn't use it for real until 12 months and even the it had to be a straw sippy with only water lol. She never took bottles though and she's sti breastfed, she's 18 month
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 tried starting around 6-9 months. DD refused to switch until 16 months.
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!
Introduced it at 6 months but he didn't like it till recently and he's 9 months.
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.
