When did you introduce a sippy?

When did you start a sippy/cup? DD is 4 months old, and has never had a bottle. She'll probably start solids in the next couple of months, and I was thinking of maybe letting her have a sippy once or twice during the day. My mom (who doesn't approve of me BFing) says she should be 100% off the boob and on the bottle by 6mths...yeah, NOT happening. I'm just not sure when would be a good time to introduce a sippy and if she would even have one. I was thinking about maybe this cup.

DS never liked sippys, he went straight to a straw cup when he was 6mths and by 8mths he was completely off the bottle (I EPed for him, he wouldn't latch). I don't want her to end up favoring the cup over me, ya know?

Re: When did you introduce a sippy?

I will be watching this. My DD is 4.5 months and won't take a bottle either but I have been wondering about giving her a sippy cup of BM as well....

Have you started any cereals or foods yet? Not sure about those either! Even though shes my second, I feel so LOST! Her 4mth well baby visit is this week, hopefully her pedi can give me reliable answers.

Haven't started cereal or anything yet. Her ped recommends waiting until as close to 6 months as possible

That's what I'm hoping to do, especially with her being a preemie. She has very little head control, so I couldn't imagine starting her on solids yet. I have friends with babies around her age..some younger that have already started solids.

Re: When did you introduce a sippy?

We started straw cups at 8ish months. At 4 months he started drinking from our glasses and bottles. He started eating at 8 months and that's when we started offering water. He never did figure out sippies so we did straw cups. I hate pumping so he almost never had a bottle.

Soft spout sippy at 6 months. Straw cup at 7-8ish months. Didn't really care for the sippy but likes the straw cup. She would take a bit of milk from the sippy when she was with DH, but she mostly just chewed on it.
