Can anyone suggest a good sippy cup that my 10-month old would use?

My 10-month old baby is having a hard time drinking out of a sippy cup. She seems to be trying but just can't get anything out. I have tried a few different ones without any success. Can anyone suggest a good one that I can let her try?

Try a sippy for older kids, or sometimes the cheap disposable ones are good too -- My daughter was the same way, she had to stuck SOO hard, and barely got anything out! I found the cheaper ones and the ones for older kids seem to have a faster flow. And the hard plastic ones with the "no spill" feature = I would just take out the rubber stopper ... its messier but it works! Also, if you let her drink from a cup (while you hold it!) she will learn to this and may be alot easier!

Oh, and the sippys with the straws are excellent! And it's handy because if you are out and about without a sippy, just get a to-go cup with a straw!

We went thru a ton of sippy cups till we would find one our Son would drink out of...we found our best options were the Born Free Sippy cups (but these have no valve so they leak if he turns it upside down, so they only get water or juice in them) or the munchkin which he is doing great on! No more bottles in our house!

We use the Nuby sippys as well...the ones with the silicone or soft plastic mouth piece, it's perfect for learning because if they just bite on it, water/milk/juice comes out, they don't always have to suck to get it out! My daughter prefers straws now and we have been using the Munchkin cup with a built in soft straw.

my daughter is very particular about her cups and i found that the Nuby cups from walmart worked the best for her and the Playtex stage 4 straw cups are also great especially for milk as they are insulated and keep the milk from getting warm to quickly. my girl will only drink milk from the straw cup and water or juice from the nuby. you just have to go with the flow and try out different brands till you find one that works.

I tried EVERY sippy cup out there and the magic one is NUK with the silicone nipples you can get them at walmart or babies r us

My son was the same way, he couldn't hardly get anything out of a regular sippy cup, and it would frustrate him so much that he stopped trying. I found that the cups with the straws work the best, and most of them are even spill proof which is amazing!

My daughter uses Nuby. Our oldest used a similar Nuby one to the one used now by the little one. Its basically the upgrade to the older one. The spout is soft and its a no spill cap. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001MNE1S6/ref=...

We didnt get this 12 pack, but this was the only good picture i could find.

Both my girls have had success with the Munchkin brand, available at walmart and target and many other stores. I get the one with handles and a flexible silicone-like nipple. It is more like a bottle really, but it is a great way to transition from a flexible nipple to a sippy type lid.

I'm in Australia, so not sure what is available everywhere. With my 2.5yr old I had tried a lot of them when she started using them. I found that she would suck & it wouldn't breath for her so she couldn't keep drinking. I have found the Avent ones the best. They breath well. They have different mouth pieces for different stages. They are non spill. My now 10.5 month old has her own now & it also doing really well with it. They have removable handles for the next stage. They are more expensive but so worth it to me.
