Re: When did you start sippy cups?

1st DS.. started at 12 months. drinking out of it full time by 18 months.

2nd DS.. started 6 months. drinking out of it full time by 8-9 months.

3rd DD.. she is almost 11 months. been trying since 6 months. will have NOTHING to do with it. She LOVES her bottle. We keep trying and she will eventually get it. I am not stressing.

Re: When did you start sippy cups?

My ds3 just started using a sippy at almost 8 months. I have tried the avent ones before, but he wouldn't suck on it. He has tried every bottle on the market and hates them all!

Yesterday while I was at the store Nuby has a new one that has the soft spout, but it has a straw so they don't have to tip it up. I bought it to try and my DS loves it!

My DS is 20mo and is just now starting to drink from a cup. However, he doesn't even weigh as much as your 6mo. I tried to get him to drink from one when we started solids at 6mo but he thought it was a toy. I've tried on and off since then and he's finally figured it out (mostly).

Re: When did you start sippy cups?

We offered one with water in it starting at 6 months. She is getting the hang of it now, at 8 months. We discovered that she loves cold water because we get water from the thing on the freezer door and she would throw a fit to have a sip from our cup. She loved it so I bought a soft spout Avent sippy and she drinks her water from it. I don't have enough of a supply to but BM in it, or I'm sure she would love that. We still nurse as well. She also takes Playtex bottles at daycare.

Re: When did you start sippy cups?

8mo DD can't figure out how to use a sippy cup. She just likes to chew on it. She's only taken two bottles in her life and they were both in the first 3mos so she doesn't get that suck concept, I suppose. Wish she did b/c she's drinking out of a regular cup with my help and always gets the water on her. Maybe I should try the spout cups that don't require the sucking and then try to transition to sippies.. Anyone else ever had this problem? Any suggestions?

We taught him to use a straw first and then he drank from a cup with assistance. Now he mostly gets anything from a regular cup. Sippies have to be broken at some point and I didn't want the trouble.
