what kind of sippy cup to use when weaning baby off a bottle..

Jennifer - posted on 01/22/2010 ( 10 moms have responded )




my daughter is 16 ms old she sill uses a bottle when for milk but she uses a sippy cup for juice during the day...she doesn't want her milk from a sippy cup because it comes out too fast and she likes the flow of a bottle, any suggestions on slow flowing sippy cups???

if you go to the baby section in walmart they have transition sippy cups. they have a piece that snaps on to give it the handles like a sippy cup. and then you just pop them off and its a bottle. and it has a softer mouth piece.

My daughter liked the Nuby best. It's a soft end, more like a bottle's nipple. Plus they're cheap.

My son never liked the ones with handles or straws like a lot of other children appear to. He loves the $1 Nuby cups from Wal-Mart. It doesn't have handles so it feels like they're holding a bottle and the insert has a fast or slow flow side. Give it a try and if it doesn't work you only spent a dollar!

can she suck from a straw? If so, Nuby makes a great sippy cup with a straw that my son loves; the flow is slower than a sippy cup.

The first sippy cup I ever gave my son was a Nuby cup because the whole top (including the spout) is soft and when he was just learning how to use it he could bite the spout and liquid would come out until he released. I'm not sure if I'm making sense, but my point is that the Nuby cup was great for teaching. He still uses them occasionally but for the most part has moved on to the playtex sippy cups with the soft spout and handles.

my daughter willonly take her milk from a sippie with a straw. she is the same way. wouldnt take milk any other way other than the bottle and i tried the straw and she loves it. i recommend the playtex stage 4 sippie with a straw as they are insulated and keep milk fresh for a long time when out and about.

I agree, it's all about your child's preference. There was only one that my son liked. But I also found out that he really liked the little cups with straws. I keep one with juice, one with milk and he can tell me which one he wants. I only put water in his sippy cup and that way if he takes it to bed I don't mind that he drinks it on and off throughout the night.

Playtex has a level one sippie cup that is a rubbery tip. But they say from 4-9 months old on them. My daughter seemed to like them and I didn't feel like too much came out at once.

i completely agree with the gerber graduates they have a soft mouth piece so it is easier for your child to transition from the bottle to a regular sippy cup. But i suggest that you use that for about a month or less if you want and still attempt to give her her milk in a regular sippy cup a few times a week or day.

A lot of them work really well but it seems like it just depends on the kid unfortunately. We tried a million different kinds it seems like and I listened to everyone's reccommendations but it was just my daughter's preference, really...The Gerber Graduates ones with the handles connected to the lid and the animals on the side tend to work really well though. And I can tell you that the Avent ones tend to leak out the sides. Hope this helps!
