Anyone having trouble getting the baby to understand how to tip the sippy up for drinking?

Ditto to the straw sippy but my son tips it up in the air sometimes and then can't figure why he can't drink...

My babe doesnt get the tipping part either.
Im trying to give her some formula during meals so she gets used to that.
Looks like I should try a straw sippy...

Gerber makes this really good transition sippy cup it has two handles and the part that the baby drinks from is made from some kind of rubber/ silicone??? not to sure what exactly it's made from but they work great. Both of my little ones had trouble with sippy cups until the day my husband brought these home for Wal-mart.

Most of them do not spill, due to a valve. I have bought some that do because there is no valve. But most sippy cups end up leaking at some point anyway, they aren't spill proof forever.

This might be a stupid question, but do the straw cups spill, like a normal cup with a straw or do they have a one way valve or something?

Try the sippy cup that has a straw. My daughter didn't get it at first but she does now and it is her favorite!

my girl uses the sippy cup only when she is really crabby its like a treat for her, i got her away from the passy when she was 6 months cause i saw a 4 year old with on and thought that was not right so i weaned her from that and now its just a toy not a passy to her. the no spil sippy cup is good for when they are teething cause they can chew the tip to get the juice/water/milk out to sooth there gums, and its good so it wont drip and spill in the stroller when your out. i have been teaching her with the real cup when ever i have some water she sits on my lap and i give her sum sips and she loves it.

on my third baby i am skipping the sippy cup its a ploy by companies to extend the sucking. took three babies to realize this go with the straw. easier to clean not to mention speech issues and attachment issues. cant wait until he can just use a real cup.. good luck

Mandy held the cup with the spout on top for the longest time it seemed before realizing that she'd get more juice if she turned the cup around a bit. heh. We showed her a few times, but she'd bat our hand away. I think they figure it out on their own. :)

I have learned that she wants to do everything that I do. So I pick up the cup first and drink from it, and then she grabs it out of my hand to do it her self.

I have found that the straw kind tend to be easier to teach. You can get a plain straw and put some liquid in it then hold it up to his mouth and he can learn while you "adjust the flow". My oldest son also had speech issues, and his speech therapist said straw cups are better for mouth muscles. After hearing that, we switched to straws for all our children (we have 4), and now Carsten is 10 months, and has been using a straw for about 3-4 months.
