When did you start sippy cups?

Well... I pumped for the first time ever this morning so DS could have a milk-cicle in a mesh feeder to help his teething. He's never been given a bottle... so that has me wondering...

Could I give him breastmilk in a sippy cup and just skip over bottles altogether? He's 6 months old... but is 20 lbs and is a BIG healthy boy (meaning he can certainly hold his own cup).

When did YOU first give your DC a sippy cup?

I'm actually going to start looking for the avent soft spout sipper tops you can put right on your avent bottles (which went unused.. so I'd like to get SOME use out of them)... if anyone has one of those runnign around PM ME!

Right on. That makes me feel sooooo much better. Of course, I still want to nurse at home, but it would be nice to let him try a sippy cup every now and again...

Got any extra Soft Spout??

Yup, I started sippy's at 5.5 months when I started solids. I gave him water in a sippy and he loved it...caught on right away (that is except for that whole tipping up thing).

Re: When did you start sippy cups?

6ish months- when we started solids -- just water so she cold rinse her mouth.

I just used the old school cup with lid (reminds me of the old Tupperware ones)-- no vents, no extra parts to clean. Took her awhile to get it but she's doing great with it... spills sure, but it's water, no big deal for me.

DD started on a sippy cup around 6m she does ok but I think if I offered it more often she would be better at it. Most of the time she just wants me to hold and tip it for her

We are going to start this month, too with a soft spouted cup. DD has been fussing about EBM in a bottle, so last week my mom spoon fed her...talk about messy. Her first spoon food...It is time for a sippy cup.

We need to start ds using one, I suppose. We tried one time and he of course didn't get it. It was a hard spout though and all he did was chew on it. I plan to buy him some, just taking my sweet time to do so (b/c he is my last I am sure).
