Bottle - sippy - cup??

Who never uses a bottle or cup? W/DS#1 he took a bottle in daycare but I stay home full time now & have only used a bottle on rare occasions when family is here & to let them feed, etc. Recently I found that he can use a cup just fine w/DS#2 (almost 5 mos). Just a regular cup, no sippy. Anyway I remember how hard it was to get the bottle & then the sippy away from DS#1.

I'm having a garage sale on Sat & debating if I should just sell all our sippies & bottles or if it's worth keeping them or one or two? Any thoughts? I've never gone all the way from breast to cup before. Just wanting some FB. TIA.

I use a sippy because it is easier for spills. I never had a hard time with going from sippy to reg. cup here. Avoid bottles at all costs though. Go from breast to sippy and then cup.

or straight to a cup, whichever!

I used an Avent sippy from about 5 months I think; I could pump directly into it which was super convenient. It was just nice to have something for carrides, etc., when it was difficult to nurse, kwim?

(I've nursed leaning over a carseat before...LMBO It can be done. But, obviously, not if you're the driver! LOL)

Re: Bottle - sippy - cup??

At our six or eight month check up, I asked the doc if I should try to give her a bottle and she said not at this point, just go straight to cup. I would keep a couple of sippy cups just for car rides and such, then sell the rest. I just got rid of all my bottles and am about to have my own garage sale for the rest of the stuff!!!

Re: Bottle - sippy - cup??

we skipped bottles entirely. she can use a straw, sippy, or regular cup just fine. i tend to give her a sippy just to make life easier for me - she's only just now learning to put her cup down flat, kwim - rather than just tossing it to the side.

we actually really didn't use the sippy much until about 15 months - then we took the valve out for a day and she figured it out and then put the valve back in and she's been good to go.

before that we would either take up liquids in a straw for her or let her takes sips from the cup w/ us holding it.
