Smile Sippy Cup ??

My dd is almost 10 months old. She's only had about 4 bottles in her life. She toys around with the sippy cup, but mostly, she gets all choked up on it.

Nowadays, she's having to stay more with the baby sitter, so it is okay to let her have a nipple instead of the sippy? My oldest was a pro on the sippy by this age, but lo just isn't getting it, & I don't want her all choked up.

What do you all think? I'm thinking that it is okay, but want some reassurance.

Thanks! Jana

Re: Sippy Cup ??

If you are nervous about her getting hooked on a bottle, have you tried the soft Avent sippies? That is what my dd took to when she was that age. The other one she liked were those really cheap ones from Walmart...Nuby I think they are called. Those also have a soft spout. If she doesn't like any of those, I'm sure a bottle is no big deal at her age. I've seen lots of 10 month olds with bottles.

My ds also only had a few bottles in his life(he is now almost 14months). He uses the Nuby sippy cups the pp was talking about. He does really well with them and most importantly they are BPA FREE! They are also pretty cheap(less than $2) I think that since they are silicone it is more like a nipple to them and makes it easier. Maybe give those a shot.

Re: Sippy Cup ??

Thanks Mamas! I'll try the soft-tip Nuby's. We have the soft Avent and some of the old Nuby's but certainly time for a new BPA-free one. I am a little worried about her getting hooked on a bottle nipple, but don't want her choking either.
