hi i went to the wic and the lady said that i should give my 6 month old juice in a sippy cup i think its too early. how old were your babies when they started using sippy cups? i tried with one that my mom gave me but she just plays with it. are there any special ones for first timers?

my dr. told me to start using sippy cups at my daughters 6 mo. check up (2 weeks ago) but the dr. also said not to put juice in the cup until she can use it well after she can use it well i can put anything i want in the cup for now i have just been putting water in it. i would let your baby start playing with a cup they will get the hang of it soon i let my daughter play with empty cups at 5 months she is doing very well at drinking out of it she drank about 3 oz. water all by herself last night i was sooooo proud

Ivy have you heard that no one really cares. Shes got a 6 month old to take care of...i personally dont care if someone forgot to put a period. you have to much time to sit there and proof read some ones reply.

with my little boy i let him drink from a cup when he was three months( only water) with my help of course. i find the best ones for first timers are not the spill proof ones. those take a little while to master. by the time he was 6 months he was drinking from a spill proof one and doing it perfectly all on his own. the earlier you start the earlier they catch on.

Walmart has Nuby brand sippy cups that don't have a valve and don't spill. They have a clear, soft spout and cost about $1.50. My daughter was never willing to use the ones with the hard spouts, and the ones with a separate valve are just gross to clean.

JBear said exactly what I was going to suggest. These cups are wonderful. My son is five months old and I give him drinks of water when I feed him solids. The spout is almost like a nipple.

I also seen in my baby talk magazine today that avent also makes a sippy cup with a silicone spout.

Both my kids used a sippy cup a 10 months old my daughter hatted the bottle,wouldn't drink more then an once at a time but I gave her a cup and she went to town.

i have the sippy cup that jbear mentioned she likes it but can't tip it up far enough to get a drink unless it is full I guess as she gets sronger she'll do better.

They make spouts you can put on a baby bottle to get your baby used to drinking from a cup. They leak a lot, though.

My daughter started using sippy cups at 9months...but she fell..and the sippy cup hurt her teeth, she was afraid after. Then when she turned 1yrs old, i completely took the bottles away, and tried her sippy cups...she had forgotten, and she was ok with the transition. with my son i baught about 10 cups of those "nuby" except i live in canada i payed 2.99$each. LOL plus taxes. Grrrrr!!!! And he used them at 7months. he was off the bottles at 13months

I love the NUBY sippy cups. My almost 6 month old daughter is drinking formula out of them now. They are so easy to hold onto, spill proof, and sooooooooo much easier than bottles to clean.

My doctor told me to start my daughter on juice in a sippy cup at 4 months old. She said to continue formula in the bottle but introduce juice in the cup. I think it is just a matter of the doctors preference. She took to it right away even though it took me forever to get her started on a bottle. I thought the cup would be tough but it wasn't.
