what i do with my girl is inside the house i will give her a sippy cup because of spills and every opportunity outside i give her a cup ,as she got more confident because of practice she can have it in the house, it is good for her to drink out of a cup as it helps for when you are out

My daughter is able to drink from a real cup, I switched her from bottle to sippy cup when she was 1 and from sippy cup to real cup alittle before she was 2. You should try those little cups with Dora or her favorite character on them and put her favorite drink in there and i'm sure she will drink it....

i started my son on regular cups by letting him use one in the bathtub. and when hes not in the tub i make sure he stays in the kitchen and only gets water. water is easy to clean up! lol but you just have to hang in there and be patient! they will spill it many times but thats how they learn.

My daughter uses a sippy cup or straw cup. I hadnt even thought about getting her to use regular cups till the other day i was at my friends house who has a daughter the same age as mine and she handed my daughter some juice in a regular cup, i instantly grabbed up afraid that my daughter would spill it all over my friends floor...i had to ask my friend if she had a sippy cup or a straw cup...it was then that i thought i may need to start getting her used to regular cups, but i havnt started yet.

We use the cups with straws. (like the ones at restaurants.) If we give him a cup, he will eventually space out and start tipping it until it spills. Meals, he uses a cup at the table. ... My son never got the hang of sippy cups. He would get mad and throw them.

my daughter drinks from a regular cup in the day and a sippy cup at night i just showed her how to use one by letting her have bits of my drink and being there to steady her clumsy fingers at first till she got the hang of it!! :)

My daughter uses cups. I threw out the sippy cups when she was about 18 months. She was always excited about using her "big girl cups" which helped. She made messes at first, but how else are they suppose to learn? Just keep paper towels handy and also, you can buy the kid size, hard plastic cups. You can get the cups from Walmart, Target,etc.

My son drinks from a cup. He is only allowed drinks in the kitchen. We do have sippy cups to take for stroller rides to the park , car rides, and various outings where you don't want an open cup around to get spilled or have bugs land in it.

My son drinks from a cup. I threw all his sippy cups out in Jan. He is only allowed drinks in the kitchen, so if he spills a little of it, it is easily cleaned up. He knows the rules and follows them very well *knock on wood* I started giving him a cup at meal times in his high chair and when he got used to using them thats when i threw out his sippy cups.
