When did your DC start using a sippy??

DD is 10 months old and just recently started to "play" with her sippy. She'll suck on it maybe twice then play, suck on it a little bit...most she'll drink is about an oz total. My first daughter took a sippy efficiantly by 6 months old.

Just curious about others!

My dd went from BF to sippy in 2 days. I gave her a straw sippy and she never looked back. I was able to wean her in that week.

I didn't vote because I failed miserably at BFing (so it doesn't apply to us) but if it makes you feel any better my 18mo still won't take a cup.

She wouldn't until I got her one that has a straw in it, so she doesn't have to tip it. She loves it! Look for those, they are awesome. Plus it's soft, so more like what baby is used to.

DD still doesn't get it. Just like her thumb, she puts it in her mouth and it just sits there. She doesn't get the whole 'sucking' thing unless it's my BB or finger. Not really sure what to do from here...

My DD was EBF and never really used a bottle at all. By the time she started solids at 6 mos, we gave her one of those Avent sippy cups with the soft tip and she took to it really easily. It was kind of nice to go straight to the sippy cup.

I think 9 mos, but I always gave a sippy if I was not BF. Only my mom or DH gave a bottle when I was not around
