My daughter does great at the table/highchair. She loves solids because of the different taste and texture.. she sometimes wants to grab the spoon and do it her self but i think she would actually prefer me to feed her instead of doing it her self so she can relax while eating, lazy baby!! but we still let her feed herself (from sippy cups). She drinks water occasionally and juice but has no problem taking breast milk from her sippy cup since i am working. when shes around a yr our dr advised regular milk from sippy cups so we just got a head start.. minus the regular milk :)

Yes, my daughter's been drinking water from a sippy for a little over a month now. We only do water, though, as formula is still her main source of nutrition, and I like to hold her while she eats. The sippy is a lifesaver if we're out and about, though! It's something to chew on, drink from, and play with--all in one! Not to mention the extra fluid has been great since we started some solids. She somehow managed to figure out relatively quickly that she's got to turn the sippy upside down to get the water out--crazy!!



How is the sippy cup full-time going? Does your baby fuss when you have them eat at the table (w/ you feeding them from a spoon)? Just curious!! I think my daughter would get too used to the idea of eating alone, and become less-interested in being near me (much less having ME feed HER) during meal time!

I introduced sippy cup at about 5 1/2 months, he first just played with it and chewed on it. But now he has figured out how to drink out of it. Someone told me not to put the no drip stoppers in at first because they will get frusterated with it and give up more easily. He is a little over 6 months now and is doing pretty good with it. I also use the gerber ones..I'm scared to have to wean of the bottle someday though, I am sure that will not go over too well, he still loves his bottle =)

my daughter absolutely hates sippy cups. when i put them in her mouth she screams as if she's offended and someone tried to violate her. she wont even try them and she wont even try to hold her bottle because why should she put in the effort if you're willing to do it for her. i'm just at a loss of what to do with her. i think she'll go from bottle to regular cups, nothing in between.

My 6 1/2 month old son won't drink from a sippy cup. He will drink from regular cups a lot but he doesn't like the sippy cups.

im using the gerber ones they come in two packs with the soft silicone so it resembles a nipple, also using a munchkin one she likes it too

we are trying it slowly. She won't take a bottle and so we needed an option so I could leave the house. Which cups are you using?

We use the sippy occasionally, but he really doesn't drink much other than formula. He has had juice a few times from the sippy and he understands the concept, but doesn't seem to think much of the juice! I am having a hard time fitting extra drinks into his diet. Our pedi told us to make sure he eats at least 24 oz of formula a day and with 24 oz of formula plus 3 solid feedings, I'm tracking the formula oz each day and always hoping I will squeeze in the full 24. I've considered cutting out a solid feeding, but my little man spits up SO MUCH when he doesn't have solids in his belly. It was easy to get close to 30 oz a day when he ate twice in the middle of the night, but now that he sleeps through it is getting more difficult... I'm still trying to hash out a feeding schedule that works so adding the sippy is more of an "extra" right now.

My little boy is 7mos old, and I am starting to introduce him to a sippy cup. He can put it in his mouth, but doesn't know what to do with it after that. He will chew on it now and then and get a little something out of it, but not enought to get the point.

Mine drinks water from a sippy cup, but not his milk - I like to make him realise he is drinking something different from each at the moment
