Re: Past Sippy Stage?

In my experience, if you introduce it TOO EARLY they reject it. I would give my ds's sippy cups starting at about 8 mos, and once a week until they tried to actually use it. DS1 took a little longer to get a grasp on the idea, but DS2 is only 10 mos, and uses it exclusively now! (we quit bfing when he was 6 mos). It will depend, but I really like the soft-mouth from Gerber. Those are the ones he likes best...and they can knaw on them a bit too! And he loves the handles. At first, of course it comes out too fast for them, so you have to do it with something with some body to milk...and they get used to it. GL
