Wink Re: What do you put in the sippy cup??

Be careful with sippy's as they can sometime encourage bad speech habbits. (so says our speech therapist) We went right from breast to straw cup at 10 mos with both kids. No need for a sippy before then, at least not for us.

We are doing the same. I would rather go from the breast to cup and skip the bottle. My DD is 5 mths today and we have been giving both. Water while we eat so she can play around with it she doesn't really drink anything but sometimes I pump and she feeds herself pretty well with only little help. We have the Doc Brown's transistion cup it only has one hole in the spout and handles on the side for her to hold.

I put water in them. DD has been all about the sippy cup since she was about 5 or 6 months old; she never took a bottle I didn't want to have to deal with a nursing strike or anything so we just did water. I've put juice (watered down) for the couple of times she's had constipation issues

Right now, my DS gets 4oz water and 1oz of apple juice in his sippy. That pretty much will last him all day and he only gets it at meal times. I will only put juice/water in his sippys right now. I never put formula or breastmilk in sippys. When he gets older, I'll put whole milk in his sippy.

I picked "other" b/c you can only pick one answer and my answer is

we did/do EVERYTHING! from 6mths on... if I was home to nurse, of course I just nursed but if I was gone then in the cup...and everything else in teh cup ... the faster you can get rid of bottle (or never use them) the better and easier it is...

I started giving my DD water at the same age & she loves it!
I started mixing a small amount of juice with water when she was 8 months & give it to her with breakfast & then water the rest of the day ... she drinks alot but still nurses just the same

DS is two and a half and refuses to drink straight milk most of the time. I mix 3/4 sippy milk to about 1/4 juice and he takes it fine. Sounds nasty but he drinks it.

My dd is 9 months. I put everything in her sippy. Formula, water, juice (apple/carrot), or yogurt smoothies. I'm in the process of weaning her from the bottle so all her liquids go in her sippy
