Using a Sippy Cup Parents typically use sippy cups as a transition to regular, open cups, which are often too messy for younger toddlers to use. They sometimes overlook the fact that the transition from a bottle to a cup is supposed to take three or four months and not three or four years. In general, sippy cups should be use.

Many pediatricians tell parents to introduce sippy cups around 6 to 9 months. That’s when kids commonly start drinking water and other liquids besides formula and breast milk. Limit spills by starting with small amounts of water or milk in cups your child can comfortably hold. Cups with two handles or small paper cups can be great starter tools. And toddlers are called “toddlers” for a reason, so don’t let your child walk and sip at the same time to avoid a mouth injury.

Most babies are ready to start drinking from sippy cups sometime between 6 and 9 months. They’re just practicing, though. You probably shouldn’t take away their bottle until they’re about a year old.

Babies get most of their nutrition from formula or breast milk during their first year. The Baby Brezza Transition Cup is the perfect way to transition your baby from a bottle to a cup. You’ll love that it’s 100% leak and spill-proof!

The tongue, jaw, lips and palate are all part of this process. Babies should transition from this suckling reflex to a more mature sucking pattern within the first year of life. If a child goes from the breast or bottle to a sippy cup, they tend to drink out of a traditional sippy cup as if it were bottle.

Sippy cups can be a great way for your baby to transition from nursing or bottle-feeding to a regular cup. They can also improve hand-to-mouth coordination. When your baby has the motor skills to handle a cup but not the skills to keep the drink from spilling, a sippy cup can give him some independence while keeping cleanup to a minimum.

  • We first tried the Munckin weighted straw cup and it would leak milk everywhere! ����‍♀️ But we love the OXO Tot Transitions Straw Cup ��

  • My daughter loves the NUK Sippy cups, it’s always been her favorite since we started with different cups (5M). She loves the Muchkins 360 (7M) but it leaks everywhere when she wants attention when throwing. Looking for a straw sippy cup so she doesn’t have to tilt her head back. Your lucky you can get your child not to have a mess in her face while/after drinking. Mines always been hard to keep clean.

  • I think that yes the neeple has a big dwal to be with it.. I’m just going crazy now its 1st week she has not drink milk from anything different from the bottle and at 1st she keep touching the neeple of the zippicup then she would throw it away. Now I am taking a break from offering to see if she would drink milk.
