when to take sippy away? Platypus Due March 17; 1 child; Massachusetts 2633 posts
28th Apr '13

LO is 3, and she LOVES her sippy.. She can drink out of a regular cup, and transitioned from her bottle to her sippy at 14 months with no problem... But she down right refuses not to have it at night time.. I give her water in it, but i still wonder if it's alright still. What do you guys think? She has no stuffed animal shes really attached to or anything.. this seems to be her "thing" and I feel like taking it away would be cruel =(

My son is three as well (as of March) and he still gets a sippy. He can drink out of a regular cup but he's forgetful and usually knocks it over.



Anyway, onto your night time one. He still gets a sippy of water in bed at night. And honestly he probably will for a while. He is,hot natured so he sweats and gets thirsty at night. So when he wants a drink he just finds it has a couple sips and goes back to bed.

She is almost 4. I let DD have her "nana" which is her blanket comfort item.



But I would never give her a sippy at home. She gets one at daycare just because there are ten kids at times and that would be messy. But she has a cup of water by her light switch, which she never drinks. And she keeps cups on the table at home.



I guess I started taking it away right after I started giving it to her. She had it for trips in the car up until last summer (Age 3) And now we use water bottles in the car.



DD was a really easy transition from bottle to sippy to cup though, I can imagine most kids aren't as easy as she was.

Lol. I gave my son the rest of my water bottle (it was like less than 1/5 full) in the car last week and he dumped it in his lap.. he's not ready so he'll keep getting a sippy.



Not bashing or anything. Just continuing the conversation :)

Well my DD is 2.5 and for some reason she still can't drink out of a regular cup and we practice all the time,so she still gets a sippy and probably will for awhile

Yeah I don't have problems like that, it really all depends on the situation and the kid obviously. She takes the cap off and puts it on by her self and everything.

At night I leave a cup of water near DDs bed so if she is thirsty she can have a drink. The only problem I see with a sippy at nightis overnight potty training.
