So a branch off from the extended BF'ing thread. How long is too long to be using a sippy cup instead of a regular cup? Sippy cups were only meant to transition from bottle or breast to cup. There initial intention was never to use them for years as many US parents do. I personally got rid of all sippy cups by the time they were two. I won't use them for daycare kids past that point either. They have all been more then capable of drinking from a regular cup by that age (this does not apply for children with disabilities or medical needs) Was there a few spills here and there definitely but I would rather a spill here and there then a sippy cup. Thoughts?
